Hotel is within walking distance to Petra Ruins site. Hotel is larger than it appears with two swimming pools. Rooms are large and windows can open onto courtyard and pool. Water is scarce in southern Jordan so hotel flow is slow but very adequate. Staff pleasant, food is on par with a tourist hotel but one does not go hungry.... More

As many reviewers already said, the location is priceless. Less than 5 minutes walk to Petra Visitor center and the top restaurants are located right next door. The hotel also have a bar with reasonable priced beers. The restaurant is average and only seem to offer buffet for dinner - a very popular choice I noticed but my recommendation would... More

One might think that with the captive audience in Petra as the tourists are very stuck there, the natives would want to create a nicer experience. However, the hotel was as run down as was the city, and the architectural magnificence that is Petra causes one to wonder what people were there to create it since those are are there... More

I would recommend this hotel due to its location. It is a 5 minute walk to the Petra ticket office and close to a variety of restaurants. It is close to convenient stores where you can buy some fruits, snacks & cheap bottled water to take into Petra. We paid $82 AUD for one night, and considering its location, it... More

Spent a couple of days at this hotel as part of an Explore Family Adventure on the leg of our journey to visit Petra, therefore we did not choose or book it ourself. The rooms were VERY tired and there was NO hot water, what came out of the taps was at a dribble. My husband and son's room stunk... More

Located 5 minutes from the main entrance to Petra. There are two swimming pools. We planned to take a swim after a day of touring,... More

We stayed a night here. Nit is located next to the entrance to Petra. The room is big, but it is not kept clean. We had to change a pillow because the pillow case was dirty. Only one sink. No face towels. The room does not smell clean. Food is OK. We had dinner there.

Nice pool, good Location, ok staff, ok breakfast, ok Price. Very average. We came here after an over priced night at their Partner's Rock Camp and were satisfied with what we paid for. However, to be on low season, in an underdeveloped Country, they should offer a bit more for what you pay. Internet only in the Lobby. Outside completely... More

The hotel happily accommodated an early check-in and helped with our special requests. The whole hotel is a bit tired and shabby, and musty smells abound, but with the AC on and a bed to sleep in, I wasn't going to complain for the good rates. The staff were all very friendly and the pools were great to use in... More

This hotel is a few minutes walk from the entrance to Petra. It has two swimming pools, which are wonderful after a long, hot day! Staff were helpful and friendly. There is free wifi in the lobby, but not in rooms. My pool facing room was clean, had obviously been "refreshed" recently, although the fittings were not new. The bed... More
