We stayed here just to go to the Cave Bar, which was great, but the best part about it was it's location - right next to the entrance gates to Petra. From the outside, our room looked like a cute little villa set right into the mountain. Inside was spacious and comfortable with tasteful decor and working AC - very... More

We didn't stay a the hotel but ate at the hotel restaurant one night. I would not recommend this place for dinner- the food wasn't very nice, very pricey (due to its location) and staff were extremely inflexible with the menu even though we had dietary requirements- that was a sign of poor service for me.

We stayed here for 3 nights in June. This hotel is in fact the closest to Petra entrance but there are other hotels nearby - literally another 60 seconds walk. The rooms were ok and beds comfortable but they all face outwards - like the old style motel - so you have other guests walking right by your room at... More

This really is the closest hotel to the gates of Petra (100 feet?) but that is not why I recommend it so highly. After all you're probably going to spend the day or days walking many miles through Petra, what's another few blocks? Mostly I thought it was the staff and the service. They were friendly, knowledgeable and efficient without... More

This hotel is clean, comfortable and fairly priced (compared to others in the zone; n.b. there are NO cheap hotels in Wadi Musa) and besides is the closest to the path that leads to Petra. Staff is friendly and helpful. The best, the in-hotel souvenir store has the cheapest prices in town (which sometimes means paying 300% less than in... More

We stayed 2 nights in June when we visited Petra, and were so glad we booked with Petra Guest House. Pros: The guest house is really quite a nice hotel with nice comfy rooms. It is by far the closest hotel to the entrance of Petra. The gates are literally beyond the car park. Movenpick misleadingly advertises itself as being... More

Our stay here was booked as part of an organised tour that we did of Jordan. We had an average room and experienced difficulties with the Air Conditioning temperature that was addressed by the staff but gave trouble again the next day. We also had problems with the Wi-Fi in our room. Like one other reviewer, we felt that when... More

We were a party of 7 of various Nationalities belonging to a multinational company visiting Petra for the day and staying overnight at Petra Guesthouse. It was the last week of May 2014, so, although the weather was getting hot during the day, at night it was cool; therefore, sitting at the outside restaurant having dinner in the evening we... More

I stayed at the Petra Guesthouse during my trip to Jordan in May. It's located right at the entrance to Petra. The staff were polite and helpful and the breakfast was very good. After walking through Petra for 4 hours each day, it was quite a relief to see the hotel right there at the exit. The staff was kind... More

I booked this hotel because of its location close to the Petra Gate. I saw so many reviews saying that if people were to do it over, they would have booked closer to the gate. However, I saw many places that were pretty close or ‘close enough’. I’ll give the pros and cons that I found of this place. I... More
