When I arrived at the gate of the hotel I learned hotel had been closed for 2 weeks by the time I made my reservation. It took some doing but TripAdvisor got me placed in another hotel. But check that this hotel is open before booking. There was not even a note on the gate about the closure and what... More

Hotel is built somewhat like a village - meandering walkways to your suite. Hotel is perched rather high up on the hillside so most suites ( I assume ) have a great view of the Petra valley and town down below as ours did. Wifi is only in the lobby and unfortunately for the 3 days that we were there,... More

I was really impressed and excited about this place. What a great idea! The hotel is constructed as a turkish village actually, where the name Beit Zaman comes from. So you walk a lovely village where every little house is in fact a hotel room. One of them is yours. The walls in your rooms are made of stones and... More

The place cannot be beaten. It is one of the rarest hotels I have stayed at. Built at an actual village, the place is magical. Services is excellent and it is serene, and air of calmness and history combined. The restaurant left a bit to be desired. I ended up stocking up on food in Wadi Musa before going back... More

This is a charming and unexpected boutique hotel up in the hills overlooking the valley near Petra. The site was once a small village that has been converted into this hotel resort area - the rooms still showcase the original walls and the feeling of being in someone's home (but with modern conveniences like great shower pressure and air conditioning)....

After hiking Petra all day this was a disappointment. If you expect a comfortable bed, go elsewhere. If you want to sleep in a cave, choose this. If you want to immerse yourself in this culture, then this is the place for you. One good thing was the food- very authentic. Not at all handicap friendly. Reminds me of "Bedrock... More

interesting hotel, with low rise rooms in the style of a cave, lovely gardens and a great pool. However there was a basic lack of maintenance in the room with light fittings missing and the shower head clogged up. Also smelt musty. The staff were totally disinterested, and the hotel was almost empty. Lovely bar but full of staff using... More

I liked the village layout -- supposed to be renovated Bedouin village. The electric plugs are English (UK) but you can get an adapter to use from the front desk. No wifi in the rooms, but the lobby has it with nice places to sit, and the large restaurant also has wifi. The food was buffet style and tasted good,... More

We only stayed one night at this venue arriving late evening to lovely apartments, and in time for menu dinner which was also lovely. The staff were also friendly and very helpful. The apartments are quite roomie and the bathroom is very well presented. The location is more than ideal if travellers are intending to visit the Ancient city of... More

I completely agree with this review: No internet in the rooms, only in the lobby, worst food I have ever had, its all processed, the front desk start out as a nice guy and was replaced at 4:00 PM by a man that was so rude he yelled at my driver. Some of the rooms are remodeled and some aren't... More
