We visited as part of a tour group. The room and bathroom were disgusting. The reception area was adequate but the lift and hallway carpets looked as if they had not been cleaned for weeks - this was interesting as the carpet inside the lift was changed to reflect which day of the week it was! We found out that... More

The rooms provided were average quality and were clean just like the lobby. The breakfast was alright and filling. I was a bit disappointed that you are required to purchase a wifi coupon at the front desk before you are allowed to log on to the Internet. The staff is nice and currency exchange is conveniently provided at the front... More

We came last night and the toilet was dirty we called for someone to clean, they took long time to send someone for that, then we found that the mattress cover has blood on it and then covered bed sheets to hide it, we were disgusted and shocked how dishonest they were Don't deal with these people

I have just arrived at this hotel 2 hours ago. It claims it is a 4 star, but it is more like a 2 star If you ask me. The interior of the hotel is quite dark and old fashioned, but I am not too bothered about that. Staff have been very friendly so far. Upon coming to the room... More

Overall I am satisfied with this hotel for the price we paid, staff were friendly and there was good shuttle bus connections to Berenice Beach. Breakfast was fair and you can order a freshly made omelette. The restaurant was even open for early morning tourists for the Petra tour outside their ordinary hours! The only downside was that WiFi was... More

For only one night, it is a very good hotel. Good sleeping quality and good breakfast buffet. Air condition is very good and rooms are very clean. The staff are OK and the hotel in general is fine for your stay but you will spend all the day outside the hotel of course.

I stayed here for 1 night as part of a tour around Jordan. My room was not available until 4:15 pm. When I finally got in my room, it hadn't been cleaned, the mini-bar hadn't been stocked (and was even switched off) and the door was wide open. Everyone else in my tour group had similar issues! There is no... More

It was our last stop in Jordan. It was so crowned. The bedroom was dirty when we arrived, we paid for three beds room and we got two normal beds and small added one. When we complained on the reception about it, they told us there was not that kind of bedrooms, even if we paid for it before we... More

We spent one night in Aqaba and stayed at Aqaba Gulf Hotel. It has a nice location with short walking distance to the beach, shopping malls and restaurants, and the rooms were nice. However, I was very disappointed by the staff, as I had become used to the friendly and wonderful service that we had gotten everywhere else in Jordan.... More

Very dirty rooms, we really don't know which was the colour of the carpet in our room, it was very spotted, the bathroom was small and the towels very used. Not direct access to the beach. Wi-Fi is an extra charge, the food was average. At the front desk the receptionist wasn't friendly at all and not helful. It isn't... More
