Small budget hotel. Chairs and sofas at the lobby are worn, and sticky, and dirty. The locks on the doors and some furniture needs renovation. Bulbs in the lamps woud be great to have. Central air conditioning is good, but the ventilation is not - if someone in the room next door is smoking, he smokes right into your room.... More

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

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
