The hotel looked nice at night with all the lights on and candles but during the day it lost most of it charm. It definitely is not the one and only boutique hotel in Aqaba (as their claim on their web); there are plenty of those in the vicinity. The rooms were far from deluxe and spacious. The décor might...

Our stay here was just fine, but not luxurious . The room was clean, fresh towels every day. The breakfast buffet was good. The hotel has a nicer lobby than its peers. The staff was helpful. It is centrally located. In the evenings we walked to several of the 5-star hotels for drinks and then local restaurants for dinner. There... More

no service, no guest handling, no managers available after midnight, very bad, the stuff does not care of the guest.. the guest and hotel's reputation are not valuable to the team, the hotel's classificaton does not deserve the four stars symbol

A nice experience. It is not the most luxurious hotel, but it is perfectly nice. The real strength is the service and welcome - the guys behind reception were the most helpful I have ever encountered and responded to every query with courtesy and good advice. I would advise anyone visting Jordan to stay at this welcoming family run business.... More

The first thing that attracts is the shape of the hotel itself,as it looks like a big ship, that is very likely for a city located on the seaside…as you are coming to enjoy the sea, so its nice to stay in a BIG SHIP :)…the location of the hotel is also amazingly practical, as everything u might need, u...

This hotel is a good opportunity to be in the center of Aqaba. Nice and clean rooms. Towels changed everyday. Toilet courtesy items. Breakfast very delicious and various. Accurate and efficient staff. The restaurant in the same building is a must in Aqaba. A special thanks to Adli Sammar at the front desk.

Had a very nice corner room with a view towards the minaret. Every morning I listened to the call to prayers at dawn. Magical. The room was nice, medium standard, but much better than many hotels I've been to in richer countries... The staff is very friendly and polite, and we felt very welcome all the time. The breakfast was... More

The Caprain is very nice place with good location. It is located in the city, but it`s also near the beach. Other restaurants and shops within walking distance, office of all diving centers are located next to this hotel. It has very good sea food restaurant on the ground floor. Hotel decor is very nice and our room was clean... More
