We chose this hotel because of it's proximity to the Petra site. Knowing ourselves we knew we would probably be in the site until they closed the gates at night & waiting to get in there first thing in the morning. All of which was true! (Petra is incredible) The hotel location is excellent. It is quite & the service... More

Pros: You can't get any closer to Petra if you tried, walk out the front of the hotel, you are right on the road to the Siq. There is even a bar that is houses in an old carved out Nabean house. Great breakfast, great dinner. Nearby shopping arcade. Everything is in walking distance. Cons: Rooms are a little dated.... More

Like many people have said, you only stay in this hotel for one reason; because its close to Petra. And like many people have said, you can't get closer to the entrance. (Don't be fooled by "entrance" - its still a fair walk until you get to the Siq and then more until the Treasury, but its a beautiful walk)... More

I agree with other comments - the location is great. When I first got there, I thought the location wasn't that big a deal. The other hotels in Wadi Musa aren't that much further away. But after a day at the Petra site and the long walk back out, I was really happy not to have to walk even 10... More

Food, room and facilities were all acceptable, but uninspiring. Location, right by the entrance to Petra, was perfect. The staff were friendly and welcoming, yet the hotel did not quite come up to CP standards.

Location, food, service, nice rooms, etc.!!! I would stay at this hotel again and again! The rooms have been remodeled (based on some old pictures I see here). The food (buffet) is the best food I've ever had at a hotel (and a vast selection as well for breakfast and lunch). The staff was very friendly and helpful (very accommodating)!... More

Stayed here whilst visiting Petra. The hotel is literally a 45 second walk to entrance of petra visitors. Hotel is a little dated, but you're paying for the location rather than how good hotel is and what you can do at the hotel. I would say all the hotel amenities are a bonus as most of the time/ day will... More

I actually had a positive experience with this hotel. I guess it is because we are not part of any tours....which seem to all stay in the main building. Instead we were given a really big room just above the famous cave bar with really nice open terrace. These rooms are separated from the main building and I bet it... More

This hotel has an excellent position being right at the entrance to Petra. However, we were given a room which required a climb of 76 steps. There were others which had more steps. To be fair we did discover a lift later which took us part way up but was not pointed out at registration. In addition the 'Cave Bar'... More

It was a perfect location right nextvto the Petra visitor entrance. The breakfast was amazing as well with a wide selection. We had a nice big breakfast before we set out to tour Petra. we would definitely book at the same place the next time we visit.
