We shunned the larger (and uglier) chain hotels in favour of this local one and couldn't have been happier with our choice. Clean, impeccable rooms with large spacious balconies overlooking the pool terrace (which is amazing by the way!!) and the service was second to none. We asked for an early breakfast as we wanted to be in Petra for... More

We stayed in Grand View Hotel on 15-16/02/2014. When we came it was unfortunately raining and of course the view is not that great in the clouds. However the next morning we enjoyed a splendid view on the canyon and it was worth the distance to Petra. The hotel was empty (definitely out of the touristy season + Syrian crisis... More

We had a lovely stay at this very quaint hotel. Its the first hotel in a line of hotels at Petra, and has got a breath taking view ! All the rooms are on the ground level and overlook the valley. The rooms are spacious and bright. We traveled with 2 small kids and were given a decent room with... More

We spent two nights here, but as soon as we arrived we were disappointed with our choice. The hotel is far from everything, except for the luxury Marriot hotel (200 m uphill), so taxi drivers will ask you a lot to drive you there or from there to Petra's visitors centre. The hotel was surely nice when built, but now... More

We were the only people in the hotel and petra itself was pretty empty, not many tourists. The hotel itself was beautiful and the view was indeed spectacular. I was able to take some breathtaking photos as the sun was setting and rising. The staff were very kind and helpful. We had a wonderful stay and enjoyed our trip.

The Grand View Resort certainly lives up to its name - the view from the large terrace and from our balcony was stunning! The staff was very friendly and helpful, we had a lovely dinner outside and the room was spacious and very clean. The hotel is close to the entrance to Petra and the large pool was perfect for...

We arrived late in the evening and the staff was incredibly helpful and accommodating. They set up dinner for us outside by the pool so that we could enjoy the view. The hotel is on a ridge a few minutes outside of Petra so that you avoid the tourist feeling of the center of town and can appreciate the desert... More

I booked this hotel as we could not get into the Petra Moon. One night was enough!When we arrived the receptionist was quite bizarre, he took us into the shop and sold us goods for half price but told us we must not tell other people! We were concerned and had reason to be. The views are amazing but the... More

The view over the mountains, especially at sunset, is spectacular. The pool area is beautiful. The staff are kind, accommodating and very polite. BUT...The place is very run down, the food is appalling( I always eat fish, their fish was inedible, old and very, very unpleasant). The AC kept the room at 26degrees, it was cooler outside overnight. Impossible to... More
