This hotel is right next to the gate of the Petra Heritage site and walking distance from everything else. Tip for a great room: Ask for a suite with a balcony or terrace. It is a little more expensive, but they are located outside the main hotel building next to the cave bar and restaurant. I would highly recommend it.... More

This was our first stop after a 40 hours in transit and the big, cloud-like beds with crisp sheets were such a welcome sight. The location is incredible - you can just stroll out the door and down the path to Petra's main facade.

This hotel is right next to the entrance of Petra, the staff is very friendly and helpful. They have a wonderful breakfast buffet with a large assortment of options. W looked at both the Crowne Plaza and the Movenpick on line and when we arrived and clearly this is a much better option. It is a smaller hotel with the... More

My review comes in a little late, as I was at the property back in April. I must preface this by saying I had *no* expectations and I ultimately found it to be a fine hotel. I really did not care for the general outfit – lifts and hallways and stairs. Except, of course, for the amazing bar and restaurant... More

Excellent location friendly staff food ok, great views nice bar. Terrace view room overlooking Petra village very nice. Ate in Petra kitchen great idea cook and eat own food would recommend. Entrance right next to Petra so short walk, and great when you finish tour.

The rooms were excellent with lovely views. Staff were helpful. The suites were excellent, and the cave bar unusual. Very convenient for Petra and visiting the small town. Not much to do unless visiting Petra. Restaurant food was poor.

We visited Petra as part of a tour with "The Holiday Place" back in December 2013 but there was no option for that in the "When did you trave?" bit. Don't be fooled by the name, this is not your average guest house, more like a 4 star hotel. The room was great, with 2 double beds, sofa, chairs, lots... More

Check in very friendly and efficiently done by a trainee. Room excellent, big, clean and great view located in the separate apartment complex next to hotel. Arrival amenity in the room which you would not expect for the rate you pay. Afternoon drinks after petra very relaxing in the terrace service slow yet friendly. Dinner bbq nicely done food was...

We only chose this hotel because it was presented to us as the closest hotel to Petra and with a 4 night stay in mind you get the idea, however the Movenpick is equal distance to the entrance of Petra and would have been a better quality choice in hindsight!. On check in the room we had booked, paid for... More

I agree with many other reviewers. This is not a 4 star hotel. Customer service is not a strong point and service is hit and miss. Our room was nice. If you want a room close to the gate and have little expectation in other areas then this hotel would be fine. The hotel is IHG run but does not... More
