This great hotel is on top of the Wadi Musa valley overlooking the amazing Petra. After 8 hours of walking, it was a blessing to check in here. The pool was freezingly cold, but that didn´t stop us vikings for a swim. Amazing sunset over the desert from the patio and very good hospitality. The rooms were great to say... More

We travelled to Petra as part of a recent Golden Holidays Tour of Jordan. This hotel was lower quality than other Moevenpick hotels we stayed in on our travels. But the staff were always very helpful and our room was clean and comfortable - if a little shabby. Jordan was wonderful, the people friendly and welcoming. I'd highly recommend a... More

I stayed in this hotel with a group during my stay in Petra and I couldn't believe it belongs to the Movenpick chain. It's old, run down and neglected. The food at dinner and beakfast was terrible. The carpet in my whole corridor was filthy and there were holes in my bedding. The only thing that was good was the... More

The view from our window was outstanding, you could watch the sun go down over the mountains and it was breathtaking. The hotel itself wasn't great, it was OK for a couple of nights, but some things were really off putting. The bathroom was very poorly ventilated, so it was covered in mildew, not nice. Our bed sheets were ripped... More

This hotel cannot be classified as a 5 star hotel, the furniture is old and worn, no LCDs they are still using that old box, the bathroom is miserable, the only swimming pool that's internal is freezing cold, the temp is around 18c, we asked the staff to heat it up but they said this is not possible. The location... More

Having stayed at Movenpick Hotels in the Dead Sea and Aqaba, this was areal let down. Though it's a big property, it is dingy, needs to refurbish its carpets in the corridors which were dusty and stained. The rooms are average and the food not up to the mark. The breakfast was quite bleak and the dining room area could... More

I came to Petra in July 2013 to see the wondrous and mystically beautiful Rose Red City of Petra. And decided to stay at the Moevenpick Nabatean Castle Hotel. After my flight to Jordan and then a long journey from Amman to Petra by Taxi I was understandably exhausted. It thus came as a pleasant surprise that when I reached... More

The hotel was good, but could use some improvements in the sense that, the bathrooms and the furnishings can be renewed. The service was good, but the general feel need to be pepped up. The staff are friendly and helpful and this really tops all else.

It seems that no Moevenpick hotels in Jordan have even average service - see review on Moevenpick Dead Sea. We had buffet breakfasts every morning. The wait staff were not trained to provide reasonable service. One had to wait awhile after being seated to get a cup of coffee. We often went twice to the buffet. When we returned, we... More

Hotel looks nice from the outside. The paint is peeling on the inside. WiFi is horrible. It does not work even standing next to the router. The dinner was good. The breakfast was poor. The eggs were not real. I do not recommend the hotel.
