I live in Jordan and have visited Petra numerous times. I took my sister and brother-in-law to Petra in August and we stayed at the Petra Guesthouse. The hotel is located literally at the front gate in Petra. The room rates were reasonable and the staff was friendly and helpful. The rooms were spacious and clean, especially for the price....

We didn't stay in the hotel however frequently visited as we went in and out of Petra, especially for that cold beer after a day of walking. Bar was great, if we had decided to stay in Petra we would have stayed here. Right at entrance to Petra. Great outlook. Quiet for its location and a lovely character entrance feel.... More

Visited petra for a day. The hotel is the closest to the gate. This was good as the temperatures are very high.Good breakfast. Good service. Impressive views of the mountains at night. Only downside was there was no free wifi. Cost was 16jd per hour, but you can go to any restaurant down the road to get free wifi

Stayed 2 nights. Dirty bathroom, pee on toilet seat. Partner got sick from under- done chicken at their BBQ. Argued with management about overcharge. Blah blah. Wish we had stayed at Movenpick (across the street)

We stayed for one night in Petra Guesthouse and it was great. Everything is nice about this hotel starting with location, rooms, beds. There's one thing I would have loved to find in this hotel. I wanted a pool or a spa. I know it's Petra, and everybody is there to see Petra not to stay in the hotel, but... More

Two night stay at this hotel which stands right at the gates of Petra. We were welcomed as soon as we pulled up in the car park and taken to reception. After a refreshing drink of 'whisky juice' we were shown to our clean and comfortable room. Quick change and we were in Petra which is literally right next door.... More

This was a perfectly situated hotel - the closest you will get to Petra. The hotel was clean and the rooms were fairly large. There was plenty of room to place a pack and play in. The breakfast was substantial and the staff was friendly.

As it is right next to the entrance gate to Petra, I stayed at this hotel one night so that I could see the ruins first at night and then first thing in the morning. It was a great choice. The staff were friendly and helpful, and they have a guarded parking lot that enables you to park right next... More
