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

Strangely, the tour group aplogised for this hotel in advance, but it turned out to be the nicest I stayed in, in Jordan. It's close to the Petra entrance, and right near useful shops and eateries. I really liked the white decor after the very dark colours of the "posher" hotels. It's no more tired than any other place I... More

We stayed here for 2 nights while exploring Petra. It was only 5 minutes walk to the entrance of Petra. There were numerous restaurants around and a few shops. The included breakfast was mediocre at best but it filled the need. The pool was nice - albeit cold - after a long day of exploring Petra. Hotel is in the... More

This was one of four hotels we stayed in during our trip to Jordan - and ranks fourth !!! While the location is really good the hotel itself is tired and dated and in need of a good makeover. The staff do not make eye contact.- when you walk into the hotel, the staff on reception put their heads DOWN.... More

The hotel is a bit tired & the bed linen & towels are thin and worn. However the hotel is well situated & the food is ok. It has two nice pools which are a great relief after the heat of Petra, which is wonderful.

Hotel has seen better days, breakfast is fairly good if you get down early - otherwise it is pretty basic. We wanted a drink in the evening and a cup of tea seemed too complex. There are seating areas round by the lifts, and also in the lobby which is a great place to meet people

We love this lovely and peaceful place... the hotel's architecture was a professional who knows how to use sun light, botanic and other elements... it is one of the closest hotels to the entrence of petra. Nice, clean and big rooms, good staff, delicious meals and lovely design. You feel like we are home i peace :)
