I was given what was referred to as a mountain room overlooking the front of the hotel and the nearby village of Wadi Mousa. It was a large room with plenty for my needs. The porter brought the suitcase quickly and demonstrated all the facilities in the room including the hairdryer, which he comically blew his hair with, the air-conditioning,... More

We stayed 2 nights at Petra Guest House as part of a package tour of Jordan. We had read many negative reviews and did not have high hopes. In fact the guest house is the only accommodation right at the entrance to the ancient city of Petra and we found it an appealing and comfortable place to stay. Our 'chalet'... More

We are regular visitors to Petra and tried Movenpick and Marriott and while both hotels were great, we have had the best overall experience at the Petra Guest House. Everything was wonderful from service to rooms and very accommodating staff and spectacular views from our room. The cave restaurant is amazing and to top it off, the entrance to Petra... More

We are regular visitors to Petra and stayed at Marriott and Movenpick on previous occasions. We decided on Crowne Plaza Guest house for our recent trip. The guest house was perfect for us staying two nights. The reception and staff were very helpful and friendly. It is also just a few metets away from the entrance gate of Petra! I... More

We stayed for two nights during Ramadan - overall rating was that it was fine and more 3 rather than 4 star. While we had requested a double bed, we ended up with king singles. We noted this to the porter who advised they were booked out so couldn't change our room and suggested we push the beds together. He... More

Stayed here for 2 nights. The hotel much better than we expected (I think the word 'Guest house' was to blame). The rooms were huge and clean. The staff were really friendly and accommodating. The Cave bar did not serve alcohol because of Ramadan, but had lots of juice and smoothie alternatives. Even after a few hours walking around Petra... More

This guesthouse is a proper hotel. It located right next to the entrance gate of Petra historical site. The hotel has a man building and terraces on the side. The main building with the lift but not the terrace building. My room was on the top at the end of the terrace building and it required many of the steps.... More

My mother and I stayed here for 2 nights while visiting Petra. The hotel was comfortable with great service, and the location is amazing. The entrance to Petra is right outside the hotel, which is perfect for getting an early start and for your aching feet on the way back. The Cave Bar is a great spot for a nightcap... More

Let me say outright, it wasn't the best hotel we've stayed at. Not even close. HOWEVER, once you've spent all day walking inside the ancient city, the fact that this is right next to the gates makes a big difference. Your legs will thank you for staying here. The building itself is charming in a quaint sort of way, and... More

Stayed two nights at this inexpensive 3 star- hotel 50m away from Petra- entrance- perfect location. Rooms quite big- our´s had a terrace with views over Wadi Musa-, but owner Crown Plaza should start thinking about refurnishment ;-). Breakfast o.k., outdoor a la carte restaurant definitely not recommended (tiny menue, inferior quality), but restaurant terrace on the other hand nice... More
