Generally the hotel location is good. Compared to the price it is a fair deal. Breakfast is relatively poor with old furniture. Hotel is clean. They have some tour programs for those interested. They have theri contract with a nice beach in case you wished to visit South coast of Aqaba

We stayed here in the hotel for one day last month. The room was spotlessly clean. The service was excellent. The breakfast buffet was more than sufficient. I found the hotel value for money for the tariff we paid.

Situated on one of the main streets in central Aqaba, this hotel is well placed for down town. It is a modern multi-story building with a large reception area and a restaurant behind. Rooms are large with a fierce air conditioning that is hard to control. The TV has limited channels with none in English. The bathroom is basic with... More

Al Zaitouna hotel is located in the city center close to the area where the more posh hotels are. Rooms are clean and comfortable as is the reception area. Compared to other hotels in this price range in Jordan it's good value. No alcohol served but that's no place because there are plenty of restaurants nearby that serve beer/wine.

We stayed here as part of the Exodus - A Week in Jordan tour. It was basic, a little shabby but fine. The location was good, just a short distance to the sea, the roman ruins and the ruins of an old church. The breakfast was limited but fine for a couple of nights. Two nights in Aqaba is long...

Stayed at this hotel 5 yrs ago in August 2004. The hotel was very basic. Clean, rooms had all necessities, a/c worked well, washroom, hair dryer. Room service available, reasonably priced. Hotel was a good location, not a far walk from the souk or even restaurants. Room rates were very reasonable as well. All in all, a basic hotel, that... More
