I found the Amman Pasha Hotel over the internet, and I am SO glad that I did a bit of research. A friend and I visited in early January, and upon arrival in Amman, my luggage was promptly lost by the airline. I had to stay about an hour after the flight, and I was *sure* that the driver that I had arranged would no longer be there - but, this is where my luck changed! Esmat was STILL there, and waiting for me! On getting to the hotel with no luggage, Raymond and the Crew were immediately working to help - calling the airport (and calling, and calling, and calling, and calling). I am convinced that if Faras and the others had not just continued to call, I would probably STILL not have my luggage!
My friend and I had SUCH A GOOD TIME - the staff can arrange some GREAT day trips to all the "must-see" sights, and our driver (Esmat, again) actually suggested some other great ideas that made our trip SO enjoyable.
Breakfasts are fine, and the dinner meals are quality (the mansaf is better at the APH than even in Kerak!). Each night you can just relax with the other guests and staff, enjoy coffee, some food, water pipe (if you choose), and even dancing! Very, very fun and you REALLY do end up feeling like everyone at the hotel is your family.
I travel often to Amman each year, and I will definitely stay at the AHP from this point forward - if you are familiar with Amman, you will know that a happy, friendly hotel staff is RARE, so finding a place like this is fabulous! It is RIGHT under the citadel (across from the amphitheater) and it is a very easy neighborhood to walk around in (and shop).
Some of the bathrooms ARE small (that is just what you get in an older building!) - I am sure that if it is a problem, you can talk with anyone and they will do their best to accommodate your needs - do not be afraid to ask for anything! Room service is also not the same as at other hotels - when we visited, there was not daily cleaning, but I think this is something they will be working on. It is certainly not a reason to come!
Definitely give the AHP a try! They will help you with travel to and from the airport, as well as anything else you want to see in Jordan.
I look forward to returning! Tell them Jess says hi!
