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 hotel is closest one to the entry gate which leads to archiological site of Petra. It is 200 meter from visaitors center. We have arrived from Amman by JEET bus in the morning. Just walked down from the bus station to visitors center where tickets are issued. We should walk from inside the center towards the gate and find... 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

We stayed here one night, when visiting petra. After 10 days in Israel, at three different hotels, I can say that this hotel had the best service by far. The rooms were large and clean, the service was excellent, and the location was perfect (waking distance to the petra entrance). The cave bar was very cool also. The breakfast was... More

How cool is this place! The Guesthouse is located at the gate of the historical Petra entrance. The rooms are part of the mountain rock. It's a great adventure being in Petra and it's even more adventurous to be staying within the rock walls. The staff are extremely informative of the tour sites of Petra. We were recommended to purchase... More

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
