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

The place is a good location to visit Petra, but they are other hotel also well situated... Our room was quite nice and big but the bathroom needed a little redoing. There was a bbq every night we stayed there which is cool the first two days but after we needed some change but we couldn't eat outside if we... More

Know what you are getting with this hotel. It is a tourist hotel near the entrance to the number one tourist site in Jordan. You get little else. Everything is focused on quantity (at a low scale) and not quality. Check in was a challenge and the desk clerk had problems in English (expected). The hotel advertises itself as an... More

You can't be closer to the gate than you are at this hotel. There are several hotels that are nearby that would likely be convenient as well but we were very happy with our choice. The rooms are a bit tired but we only stayed there for two nights and were spent most of our time there in the park... More

We visited this hotel during our organised roundtrip in Jordan. Situated right beside the entrance to the archaeological site of Petra, it has a view to the mountains and entrance path leading to Siq. There is two types of accommodations, rooms in the main building (view to the main path or rock face) and more bungalow-like rooms in smaller buildings... More
