I've done this whole trip in budget hotels, which means I expect a bed and some privacy. I also expect, things not to work, crazy breakfasts and no hot water so anything is a bonus. The hospitality here is great, we arrived at 10pm and they went out of there way to make us burgers which were really good. For... More

I'm not picky. I found the room to be just fine. Comfortable, really, though the bathroom seems to be on its last legs. Between the beds, a console from the 1970s. Remember them, with radio dials? Haven't seen that in ages. It was actually fun to see. The weather in Petra was beautiful, yet the hotel seemed to be empty.... More

We stayed there 3 nights to visit Petra. The staff is nice. The room are very big and comfortable but a little bit old. The location is one of the best. Very close to Petra gate. The breakfast was very good with personalised omelette. The view from the roof is very pretty especially at sunset. The wifi was not working... More

So first of all, check in was smooth and quick, the reception staff were helpful and friendly. I was traveling with a large group of students and they dealt with us well. The room was small but clean, and the beds felt so nice and comfy! My room was right next to the mosque and it went off at 4:30AM.... More

This hotel is very near to the entrance of Petra - you can walk there in minutes. The hotel provides a view of the mountains over Petra, a wonderful outside area to have a drink and watch the wonderful Petra sunsets and see the Petra Moon. The staff here make you feel a part of a special family-the Jordanian family-... More

I stayed here for two nights. Pros: Location - it is wonderfully close to the main entrance of Petra. This means more sleep in the morning even if you want to be one of the first into the park, and a short walk back to your room after a looong day visiting Petra. Both were very much appreciated! Staff -... More

We stayed at this hotel for 1 night for Petra and it was good value for the money and extremely convenient. You can walk from the hotel to Petra so it makes sense. There are plenty of restaurants and stores nearby. It was a big room we had with decent amenities. I'd recommend the place to others.

not fancy, even the breakfast is very minimum but there are groceries and lots of local restaurants nearby. Room is very clean and great bargain for its location. If you have luggage, a bit of a challege to walk from the public bus parking lot. A taxi would cost 2$ , just 5 minute walk though.

Hotel is very close to Petra entrance which is the reason for the higher rating. This hotel is not fancy but clean and perfect for those on a budget. Breakfast was adequate. Wifi was sometimes spotty and only one channel on TV was in English. Had a fridge in the room which was a bonus. Their credit card machine didn't... More

Well in budget. Rooms are small. But clean, cozy and very comfortable, specially after long days trip to Petra. Food and service is customized as per your needs. Staff is friendly and cooperative. Looking for a wonderful view and experience in Petra, you might save a lot staying over here.
