We were first reserved and come to ahla thal hotel, which is very bad place to stay, so we have found crystal offline. This hotel is not very bad, pretty clean, but not ideal, has some problems with hot water and huge troubles with food on the breakfast. Don't even try this food, the worst food, we've eaten in the...

If you are looking for a hotel with a good location at a good price, then choose this one. You can have a stroll in Aqaba 's market (and get the chance to buy real coral jewellery- beautifully designed and typical from there) or walk a short distance to get to the sea (where you can take a glass bottomed-boat).

This hotel was booked for us as part of a packaged trip to Jerusalem and Petra. The hotel was basic, but comfortable and clean. It is in a great location, I would recommend to anyone on a budget tour. Aqaba seems excellent, wish we had more time to look around

This hotel looks suspect on first sight with its dark and somewhat grim lobby. However things pick up when you get to the rooms which are clean, comfortable, well-equipped and very good value for the money. The location is hard to argue with just a stone's throw from the promenade along the shore. This place could have got 5 stars... More

We stayed here early May 2012 as part of our our 2 days trip Jerusalem-Petra with One-Tour from Taba. Good location, great view of the sea to the left and busy street below. As we stayed in a high floor room and the aircon was a bit loud we experienced no street road noice so had good nights sleep. Room... More

Very nice evening walk. Room was big, clean, with satellite tv, fridge and comfortable beds. Dinner and breakfast buffet was good. Staff were friendly and helpful.

Everything was quite good. This is what I would expect for the price. And it has a very nice view from the roof. The only negative experiance was the noise level in the room. Is was extreamly noisy!!! If you have a room on the oposite side from the see, expect brutal noise from 5am to 2am. So you have... More

Good location - near to public beach and market . Clean. Buffet breakfast was ok. Not easy to find parking space near hotel although we were there during Eid which did not help.
