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.

We choose the hotel because it was appropriately distanced from The visitor centre at Petra . Although the building and room Are not at all disappointing . The issue is with the Ammenities at the hotel which is nothing to boast of . There is no wifi available in the room so every time you want to access it you... More

The location is ideal, about 200m from the entrance to Petra. Unfortunately the hotel has seen better days and is in desperate need of refurbishment. The rooms are tired and quite a few things are broken or damaged. The beds are comfortable and my room was very large so that was fine. The shower was 'ok' but not great. The... More

Very good location (200m from entrance to the park), lovely rooms which are very spacious and nicely done. Not too many frills. Very nice atmosphere around the place though, and overall ideal and reasonably priced for a stay in Petra. Didn't use the pool but in summer it will probably be well worth having it!

Only 5 minutes walk from entrance to Petra. Clean but very 'tired' property. We had been booked via a package where this was labelled 3star and standard. This did not meat that general criteria. Having said that breakfast was included and well organised. Decent enough range of items for breakfast including fruit cereals cakes savouries. Swimming pool available and games... More
