The Arab Tower Hotel is well-located in downtown Amman. Getting here by taxi was 4 JOD from the north bus station (or 0.5 JOD for a white servees taxi - don't take it unless you have a clear map of the streets around the hotel) and it was 20 JOD by taxi to the airport.
- Large clean room
- Good rates (20 JOD for a single on booking.com and I ended up with a twin)
- Freshly cooked omelette for breakfast on the rooftop
- Nice staff and an attentive manager who is keen to get feedback (and they reply to every tripadvisor post which I think says a lot)
- Good location
- Free luggage storage
- No internet in rooms! Wifi can only be accessed in the lobby, which is very frustrating
- The rest of breakfast is quite simple (toast, jam)
- It's not important, but the map they provide is very vague with no detail or street names. The staff give good travel advice, however.
Overall it was a good stay in Amman and I'd be happy to come back to the Arab Tower Hotel, especially considering the staff try hard to make improvements to the place.
