Hotel has the best location and nice facilities. The customer service is what impressed me. Staff went above and beyond, assisting with reviewing as well as amending my trip itinerary. The drivers they recommended were trustworthy and quite capable. Highly recommended to others.

You can't get any closer to the entrance of Petra than this place. Great location. Nice rooms. Good food and a cool cave bar. The rooms were really nice and they gave me a upgrade and no additional cost.

Stayed January 2015. Slightly dated, but very comfortable room, very clean. Excellent service, hotel restaurant OK, but not terrific. Hotel provided connections for transportation to other areas in Jordan and also provided wonderful boxed breakfast to take on early morning departure. Cave Bar very fun in the evening. The location is the closest to the Petra site entrance.

why stay at a hotel that looks like every other one? The Petra Guesthouse is built right into the landscape....with each room beautifully appointed. We had three rooms for our overnight stay....lovely. We were lucky to be there on New Years Eve...gifts waiting in our rooms, gala buffet dinner and party items at each table. Highly recommend.......j casey

Why do you go to Petra? To visit the archeological park. Not to spend all of your time hanging out in your hotel room. You need a place that is comfortable, safe, and convenient, and that's Petra Guesthouse. If you want luxury, you can stay at the Movenpick (or the Marriott, which is WAY out of the way), but that...

Unfortunately, we stayed in this hotel only for one night. The road was closed because of the weather and we couldnt arrive earlier. They gave us a nice room with a balcony, and great view. It was so cold that we didnt use it, but we saw a beautiful sunset from here. They also gave us a platter of fresh... More

Had a comfortable stay here for 3 nights. The guesthouse is right next to the main entrance of Petra, which is a major plus point. The room is big. We did not pay for wifi in the room but managed to connect to the free wifi from nearby shops ;) Staff was attentive, with good memory. The hotel’s restaurant dinner... More

We stays here for 1 night only in early Dec'14. Overall it's a clean and nice hotel (well maintained). The room is quite big and the location is perfectly situated in Petra's site entrance so you can directly went back to hotel after a long walk ;) Foods are nice. We enjoy our stays here.

Since we only stayed in Petra 1 night, we decided to stay as close as possible to the entrance of Petra. Therefore we choose this hotel although the price was about double than a similar room type in a hotel a little bit further away. The hotel staff is very friendly and most helpful. The rooms are average. Food was... More

Rooms are dark and old. Location is perfect, but service and food is less then other places in Jordan. I donnot advise you to take any other room than a standard one. The definition of a suite in this hotel is two single room with the doors open in between. I see no added value in this.
