“Bad”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2014 via mobile

I stayed here first before Al Fanar. This hotel is better but not by a long shot. This is another hotel that wreaks of oldness. The room had stains on it walls and damages on its furnitures. There was a musty smell on the room. The flooring of the rooms are those kinds that are covered with fur like textured material and I wouldn't feel comfortable stepping on it with my bare feet. The bar of the shower curtain is fully covered with rust and so were the faucet and shower handles. The towels were dirty white in color. The only positive side is it looks like they clean it and the rooms are big. It seriously needs a renovation

Stayed April 2014, traveled with family

The front desk was very helpful & friendly. Lobby is cosy and just nice for small groups. However, this hotel attracts Pilgrimage Tours do take this into consideration when booking. The rooms were tired looking but very clean. We were given a family room it had a lounge area with 2 big sofa settees. Bathroom was very clean with adequate toiletries. You cant expect much for a 3 star hotel. we enjoyed our stay here. Heating system was very good. When we arrived in Amman it was a week after the freak snow storm after 112 years the view from our room was very lovely! We'll definitely come back & stay in this hotel again.

If you can avoid this hotel, DO IT! It's the type of place where you don't want to walk barefoot in either the room or the bathroom. Bed linen crumpled and grey, drafts from windows ineffectively plugged with tissues... freezing cold, indeterminate stains on the furniture... UGH...

Room Tip: Go somewhere else...

From the outside it looks a top hotel, but when we actually got into our room we saw what it really was. All show and little volume. The furniture was a little tired and loose, one lampshade was completely broken and several light switches did not work at all. All disappointing, but as we continue to say, we had a good sleep, so therefore we are happy, but if you expect more than just a hotel to sleep in, you will be very disappointed.
We thought the supplied meals, breakfast and dinner, were both delicious and offered a wide variety for the size of the hotel.

Stayed here as the other hotel my tour group was in was overbooked. Very unhappy with this hotel. On busy street, nothing to walk by, rooms were the smallest yet! I swear my room hadn't been cleaned. They did have some dead sea shampoo which was cool. Breakfast was mediocre.

The first thing you noticed while in Jordan is the cigarette smoke everywhere! They love to smoke and drink coffee. We stayed at 3 different hotels in Jordan and the cigarette smoke was the same, with that said this arena hotel was just average in all categories. But if you are on a budget you get what you pay for. They have FREE wifi tho.

We were travelling on a tour group which has booked us in here so we had no choice but to stay here. The first stay we were on the second floor, the rooms were a little dirty and we had no hot water in the evening (it was fine for mornings). The room was small, the beds were a bit hard and the view out the window was of a car park! Noisy busy road in front of the hotel. After eating in the hotel the first night we ventured out the second night once shown where to go within walking distance. Nice big supermarket within 10 mins and a few takeaway restaurants and sit in restaurants were near by. The breakfast was included was so so but I wasn't expecting much. We didn't use the pool as we there were restrictions on what days men and women could use it. I believe there would be much nicer hotels in Amman and ones that are alot more central and have access to alot more facilities than this one. I would not recommend staying here unless you had to! The second time we stayed on this trip we were on the first floor, the rooms seemed to be a bit bigger and had been renovated.

Room Tip: 1st floor rooms have been renovated
