Starting with the positive, the people who work at Amra Palace are a real asset; they were helpful and friendly although very keen on trying to upsell tours eg. Petra by Night, their Wadi Rum camp etc. The swimming pool is really nice, it's not particularly warm on a cold day but long and wide enough to swim in. Next... More

The hotel was booked for us as part of a tour to Wadi Rum and Petra. Great location for a Petra visit. It was fine for an overnight, looks charming from the outside with a pretty fountain in front. It was perfectly clean but a bit worn out in the rooms and bathroom. But it was fine for what I... More

This hotel was booked as part of the private tour to Petra and Wadi Rum. My friend and I also booked the Turkish bath after 6 hours of walking and hiking in Petra. That really relaxed and rejuvenate us after burning 2000 calories. Then we had dinner at the dining hall--the chicken over rice pilaf was delicious! The room isn't... More

A nice hotel with jacuzzi and pool. They will make you eggs to your order. One complaint is that the plugs are a mess. Even their own adapter did not work correctly - outlet shapes were weird. Nice friendly staff. Cannot have any alcohol with dinner- other than beer which somehow does not count!

What I loved about this hotel was the location. It's a little more than 3 miles from Petra which gets you away from the totally tourist feel of Petra.The town is tiny. An easy walk from the hotel. And it's interesting with mosques and people living their life. We particularly loved the (many) delicous bakeries in town. One in particular... More

Accommodations were fine. No issues with water pressure. Found fan circulation to be loud and not particularly effective, had to open window, so early wake up due to prayer calls -- Could have been change in season/system. Wifi stalled part way through the stay. The staff at the restaurant were great, very welcoming! As was the fellow who took care... More

The title of my review isn't particularly favorable, but overall, it wasn't a bad stay. Somehow we got caught eating breakfast shortly after a large group tour so the buffet was thoroughly picked over, and we didn't realize that there was eventually going to be someone to make omelets until after we had already eaten, otherwise we would have delayed...

It is a bit out of the way from Petra. So I would suggest if you are coming from Petra to the hotel, you should get a cab instead of just walking because it is uphill. However, if you are leaving hotel for Petra, it is quite doable to walk all the way. It will take about 15-20 min to... More

Wonderful first impression with friendly staff. Wi-fi signal available but very very slow. Rooms are on the small side but very clean and tidy. Mosque in walking distance, which was great. Meals are really good with lots of variety. Dinner was on the pricey side, but worth it. Loved sitting outside while waiting for the rest of the family was... More
