I stayed here a total of four nights, and would definitely come back. The hotel is managed by a truly lovely team hailing from Jordan, Syria, Palestine, and Sudan. The location can't be beat with views from the rooftop cafe over the ancient Roman ampitheatre, and it's short walking distance to great local restaurants such as Hashem and Aubergine, as well as the old Citadel. The hotel staff was very friendly and welcoming and greeted me by name when I returned from a short trip to Jerusalem. They arranged several taxis for me for very fair prices (to Allenby, the airport and Jerash), and can organize a multitude of trips around the country. I had several different drivers, but recommend Khaled Abu Sawfyan for his excellent English, great sense of humor, and depth of knowledge about Jordan (he grew up on the street where the hotel is located).
The rooms are simple and in need of updating, but everything was in working condition (hot water, AC). I had no serious concerns (I left my valuables in the safe at the front desk when I was out), but the locks on the room doors seemed a bit flimsy as well. There is wifi in the hotel lobby and restaurant, but it didn't work in the rooms.
The nightly dubke dancing at the restaurant (excellent baba ghanoush and chicken shish tawouk) is not to be missed. I sometimes shy away from these types of things because they seem too forced and "touristy," but it quickly became obvious to me that this is for the staff's own pure enjoyment.
Great value and highly recommend if you like staying in places with more charm than amenities.
