Spent 3 nights here while exploring Petra. For a 3 star hotel the service was 5 stars. The rooms were clean and modern, breakfasts contained a good buffet selection. But it was the willingness of the staff to make it an extra special occasion that makes this hotel special. Will look forward to returning.

Run down. Lackluster staff. Rooms clean but in need of repairs. Air conditioning inadequate. Lobby, where one hangs out to get Wifi in this place smelled of stale smoke. Only redeeming feature are the two pools - a good place to be after an active day exploring wonderful Petra.

Nobody at the entrance to help us with the suitcases. Our driver had to fetch some help. It would be nice for the staff to learn how to smile - just a little! It took them 24 hour to clean the classes we left my the pool. On the second day we eat breakfast on a dirty table - nobody... More

Great hotel. Nice spacious room and nice bathroom. Lovely staff. Hotel has 2 swimming pools. Breakfast was very very good...nice selection..bread and butter pud, pizza, omllette etc. The hotel is not over fancy but thats not really neccessary, I certainly would stay again. Only complaint is that the wifi is in the lobby only and not in the rooms.

On a ship's tour to Petra we had lunch scheduled at the Petra Palace Hotel. We had the entire upstairs restaurant for our tour of about 300. Lunch was a buffet set-up. They had a good selection of salads, and for main courses they had a huge very tender and tasty lamb, beef dish and a fish dish. Everything was... More

This hotel is nothing fancy, but not bad either. The rooms were nice, spacious and clean although may not be the most modern. The dining room and the food served were somewhat average, but again, not bad.

Visited with a large group. Very accommodating for us all and gave us a very good deal on prices as it was the off season. Excellent large rooms overlooking the lower pool and a balcony. Pools are both kept in excellent condition and were fairly empty whenever we were there. Closest hotel to the entrance of Petra after the extortionate... More

You cannot beat a short walking distance to Petra, but there were a lot of issues with this hotel. The air conditioning in our room did not work (which is necessary after a long day at Petra), the TV did not work, and our wake-up call never came.

We stayed three nights. Pluses: great location, relatively inexpensive for Petra, room with two double beds (not two small twins). Negatives: very dated, cold and somewhat dirty pools, stained bedsheets and towels, and so so breakfast.
