First the good things: nice building, an aquarium with real sharks in the lobby, lots of faux marble. Great beds and pillows. Great collection of bathroom amenities. Excelllent spa, with dead sea pool, jacuzzis, normal pool, steambath, sauna, gym, etc, etc. Beautiful view over the city of Amman. Wide selection of food at breakfast.I ate in the Buddha Lounge and the food was great. Kudos to the Indonesian cook.
Now for the bad. While this is technically a 5 star hotel, the devil is, as always, in the details. At check-in, instead of being welcomed with a "We were expecting you, sir", my reservation was lost. At checkout they tried to overcharge me. Not all the staff does speak English. My lamp was broken and after two failed repairs I gave up on it. The hotel claims to have 13 restaurants, but not all of them are open every day. They were unable to serve me an after dinner coffee after my meal in the Buddha Lounge. If you book a taxi through the hotel they charge you 30% over street price.
On the other hand, for the price they charge for the rooms you will get a rathole in either London, Rome or Paris, so all and all, a good hotel for the price.
