The hotel is clean, staff courteous and the beds very comfortable. The location is great, close to a nearby Safeway supermarket and decent restaurants. Breakfast had a good variety and a free access to the internet.

I stayed here whilst stopping over in Amman on my way to Israel. The hotel was very clean, rooms were a good size, awesome shower and comfy beds. Breakfast was completely sufficient and I believe I received an excellent rate on this hotel. I would recommend to anyone who needs a relatively inexpensive hotel stay!

Misk hotel in Amman was our first stop in Jordan after Egypt. It is a modern hotel about 30 min taxi ride from Queen Alia International Airport and several killometers from old town Amman where the citadel and Roman theater are. There is large Safeway grocery store about 5 min walk from the hotel where water, fresh fruits and bakery can be bought with very good price. The hotel has its own restaurant, and several local restaurants are also within 5-10 min walk. The hotel has a 24-hour guard at the entrance. Amman, and Jordan, is of course very safe.
The hotel has standerd modern European style funishing and is very clean. Wireless internet connection in the room worked well. There are hundreds of TV channels from all over the world. The channels appear to be arranged in alphabetic order. So if you start from a low channel number, don't be surprised to find endless Arabic channels, because most these channels start with "AL".
We were most impressed by the efficiency and friendliness of the staff. We checked in pretty late in the evening. When we asked about a dinner at the hotel restaurant, the clerk took us to the kitchen to meet the chef who prepared us an excellent Jordanian fish dish. When we asked about hiring a reliable private taxi driver, we met Abu Rashad within 15 min. Abu Rashad has been working in tourist business for >20 years, speaks excellent English, is a safe driver and is very knowledgable about the tourist attractions, hotels and restaurants all over Jordan. In the subsequent 10 days, Abu Rashad took us to Madaba, the Dead Sea, Mount Nebo, Ma'in hot spring, Dana natural reserve, Petra, Jerash, the desert castles west of Amman and all the small attrations along the way. He made our trip of Jordan pleasant, informative and efficient.
We highly recommand Hotel Misk and Mr. Abu Rashad's service.

We stayed at the Misk for 2 nights at the start of our holiday. We arrived at 10 pm and asked the receptionist if they were still serving in the restaurant. He asked the kitchen and they said it was closed but they could cook us some Chicken and chips. This arrived with a lovely plate of olives and salad. This was greatly appreciated. We were also upgraded to a suite. I booked the hotel direct and had no problems at all.

The next day we needed to book transport to Petra. The reception rang some one for us and we agreed price etc. The driver was Firas. He was brilliant. We used him for our whole stay. We went to Petra, Aqaba and the Dead Sea. Between each place we visited lots of places. He was a safe steady driver. He also took us back to the airport. His email address is Firas.alomari.mail.com or ask reception.

If you want a clean tidy and great small hotel I would definately recommend the Misk.

New building with still new furniture, but the service is not as expected since you have to carry your luggage from the taxi till the front desk the thing I rarely faced. The room had a smell of smoking that never ended till I left. Breakfast is poor but you can find things to eat. Location is very good near the Safeway.

The hotel is located in the business district of Amman, lots of bank around. It's quiet in the Area (and safe). Nothing much to do around the hotel, but it really comfortable to take a walk along the street. The hotel room is clean and good in terms of the price. slightly small room but serve all your need. Wifi is everywhere in the hotel, and staffs are helpful and friendly. You might want to try the hotel restaurant, simple, but good.
