The room rate included breakfast which was outstanding. The staff is friendly, courteous and helpful. The hotel is adjacent to the archeological site and about a 90 second walk to the entrance. The dinner buffet looked very nice but we didn't partake. We ate in the 2000 year old Cave Bar. Excellent service was provided by bar manager Jaffee, bar... More

I stayed here for one night in room 214 whilst on a tour. Because I was on a tour, I can not comment on the price. This hotel is located right at the entrance of Petra, but you still have a long walk in. I got in late and left early, so I did not use much of the amenities... More

Staying at the Petra Guesthouse has the great advantage that you are right beside the entrance to the ancient historic town, invaluable as from here you still have to walk a fair way to the actual sights. However this is not the only advantage for the hotel is built into a hillside and we stayed in one of the garden... More

An amazing location right next to the gates of Petra you can walk straight in. The room was comfortable and staying out of the main hotel in the 300's is quieter but a bit of a lengthy outside walk in hot or cold weather. The buffet breakfast was good and the Caves Bar a great and novel place for drinks.

The hotel is in a perfect position, close to the entrance of the archeological site and the restaurants and shop of Wadi Musa. BUT the staff is UNDER the level of the hotel! Due we arrived at 9 AM our room was not ready (and that's ok), so we left our luggages in the hall. When we finished our tour... More

The location is excellent, although proximity to the gate makes the cave-bar a busy place - not much tranquillity. After 2 weeks of travelling through Jordan and Israel, food (dinner and breakfast) was relatively overpriced and rather mediocre, probably the worst we had on this trip. Worst of all though was staff attitude at check-in, and night-staff and general manager's... More

Petra Guest House is best located, only 2 minutes by walk to Petra, the famous archaelogical site. Other services are considerate. Food is acceptable for our Indonesian family. Most of the receptionist are English-speaking, except one lady. She was troublesome in explaining the wifi username and password. She kept saying the password was, "last your name" to explain "family name".... More
