The hotel is a good 45 mins drive away from queen alia airport,when arriving at the airport please make sure that you say it is amman international hotel because the taxi drivers(airport taxi) mistake it to be amman intercontinental hotel.Hotel doesn't have a great appealing look & the rooms were small but overall our stay was good,the room had a cooler & heater so it was really cozy,in all i would say this hotel is definitely value for money for a short stay!!!

We started our trip around Jordan with 2 nights at AIH and ended it with 1 night there. We did not walk anywhere from the hotel, but you could have gone down to a strip of coffee shops and fast food chains. The staff was overly helpful and the bar had some fun music videos and snacks. During our first 2 nights the room was very warm, and I wrote about that on the comment card. When we came back a week later for our final night the manager greeted us and gave us a new room where she assured us the temperature would be more comfortable. I thought that was very kind and helpful.

Just wanted to share my thoughts on this hotel. The staff were very professional and welcoming. The hotel was clean and the rooms very quiet. Breakfast was good and a great choice was available. Again the staff there were really nice and didn't me staying quite late and just reading in the breakfast room while drinking coffee. Good choice of room service menu not overly priced and everything was working in the room and in the hotel.
The only two negatives were that the hotel was a bit far from the city centre and the water in the swimming pool was so cold that I couldn't get in.
Apart from this all was perfect.

Hello,

Thank you very much for taking the time out and giving us a review, I apologies for the late reply.

Thank you for the kind comments, we try our best to be as hospitable to our gusts as possible and also make what ever they need available, like in the instance of our location, we are aware that it is not specifically city center but we have acquired a number of cars with drivers for the guest to use at their convenience. we also have an agreement with a number of taxi cabs to always ready just in case the need for them arises.

As for the Pool, we will certainly look into it, we have been contemplating connecting our solar power heating system to the pool, hopefully we will be able to achieve this and have the pool heated all year long.

We stayed here for four nights in early October, using it as a base to tour around Amman and northern Jordan. Spacious well equipped and furnished rooms complete with nice touches such as fresh fruit. Staff were always very polite and helpful, especially the reception and the barman in the cigar bar. When we booked we knew it was not centrally located but a short walk to the main road where taxis were readily available and cheap.
The only criticism would be the breakfast which was sparse and uninspiring.

Room Tip: Rooms at the front are quieter when an event is being hosted on the outside terrace around the swimm...

I stayed at the Amman International from 26th September 2012 - 3rd October 2012.
I was allocated room 205 which was a large suite type of room. Very well equipped with two TVs and fridges, walk in wardrobe, plenty of space, large balcony and writing table.
A lovely hotel with brilliant staff, service was excellent. Hotel layout was good and the furniture & fittings very impressive.
Good points - everything.
Bad points - none.

Lovely modern hotel. Rooms excellent very clean, service cannot be faulted, every day complimentary fruit. Good choice of food at breakfast . Situated up a steep hill , be prepared for a hike. Although not central, there was adequate choice of restaurants , coffe shops and fast food outlets nearby. The swimming pool lovely but freezing. The only downside was there was building work on the rooms at the top of the building , which was very noisy indeed.( we were not warned of this ) Highly recommended

We visited Jordan on an organised tour. This is a review of both hotels used, but first a few words about the country. A great choice for anyone who wants to travel rather than simply bask in the sun, though there's plenty of that. The people are pleasant and the sights, particularly Um Qais, Mount Nebo, the Dead Sea, Petra, and Wadi Rum everything you would hope for. No problems with the geographical location – as our excellent local guide smartly put it, Jordan is a quiet house in a noisy neighbourhood.

Our first hotel was the Amman International. It's not city centre but that was not a problem for us as we had a busy touring schedule. The outside appearance was not bad though it's work in progress with the top floor unused and unglazed, and the grounds pretty much a building site. This didn't bother us, though we cannot vouch for what might go on between 8am and 6pm. The interior was pleasant if not spectacular, and the servicing of our good-sized, comfortable room and attention in the restaurant left nothing to be desired. The food, buffet-style, was nothing special and some (eg very watery soup) fell short of the mark. Overall adequate but nothing to get excited about.

Our accommodation in the south was the Taybet Zaman about 15 minutes drive from Petra. Not so much a hotel as a holiday village – in fact it's a real village whose buildings have been expertly converted into the various components of a hotel. This means big rooms, in our case a very big room; it had four distinct areas and could easily have served as a permanent dwelling for one person, two if they were good friends. The restaurant, also buffet-style, was excellent – a fine display of food that was as good in the mouth as it was to the eye. Room servicing and the staff generally were well up to scratch. Navigating the site needed some practice, though it was unlikely to be compounded by alcohol given the exorbitant price of drinks (think Scandinavia). Overall excellent; a pity we only stayed for two nights.

Hello Alan

Thank you very much for you opinion about our hotel and our little country. its true what your guide says about us, I usually like to tell people that we are the Switzerland of the middle east, no matter what happens around us we remain stable and usually benefit from it.

I would like to say that without reviews like yours we cannot improve or fix problems that occur, we are sorry about the the poor dinner experience that you had, I will make sure my kitchen and f&b staff see your review and learn from it.

as for the construction I'm sorry for the inconvenience, to tell you the truth it has gone way over schedule and even though we are in the final stages we we cannot wait to be over and done with, hopefully by the end of the month.

thank you again for talking the time out to review and rate our hotel.
