“Great Business Hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

Facilities are in good shape,
the building has
this special atmosphere, for its limestone-construction.
I stayed on Club Level,
which made my spare - time convenient .
I enjoyed drinks and relaxed watching the sunset.

This was my third stay at the same hotel and still convinced that this is the best hotel in Amman, Jordan. Location is ideal, near all the commercial houses bu little away from the town and the city rush. Room are spacious and clean. staff arefriendly. Never miss the breakfast at Hyatt as it has great stauff and freshest juices.

The Hotel is good but the employees are not professionals specially the receptionist, I don't recommend this hotel for travellers seeking quality stay. Plus the room was very noisy as they were doing maintenance on the floor above.

This is a terrible hotel I regret to stay in,800$ has been stolen from my bag and I complained to the hotel management who claimed to do investigations and said there was no evidence their employees were doing so,on the check out date when room should not be done,I found my room done and money was stolen from my bag.Their response was negative and their responsiveness was extremely terrible.

I want to advice everybody to avoid this hotel and never stay there.It is the worse experience you can have tio be stolen in your room.This is the worse experience any of us can ever have.

As everywhere in Jordan, it is becoming extremely expensive and overrated. The hotel location is good and after a small incident mishandled by housekeeping we've got an upgrade to executive suite and late check out, also we've got access to the executive lounge which was big disappointment. room size and facilities are good and standard, nothing to wow about but its fine. my biggest disappointment was the swimming pool. its very small, water temperature is very high and the surrounding of the pool is awful, you could see store rooms and unused furniture in the corners, also while sun bathing you can see hotel workers peeking from windows on a second floor as I think its another store or rest room for them .. the whole pool experience was very bad...the food we've ordered was extremely overpriced for nothing, tasteless and very basic food, the burger was dry and tasteless and the salad was awful. to give a credit - the hotel staff were very friendly and attentive but hotel facilities are bad!!!!

Room Tip: ask for less A/C noise room - high floor over looking old Amman not main street.

The location is pretty good, just up from the 3rd circle and a 20+ minute walk or a very short JOD 5 taxi ride to Rainbow Street.

For a Hotel that is suppose to be a Grand Hyatt it does not offer the service that it should.

It is a very nice hotel. The rooms are great and clean and the bars very nice but that should be expected as the norm at a luxury hotel.

The food prices and bar price are over the top considering how cheaply you can get similar food no more than 15 minutes walk away. Breakfast is good but again this is a Grand Hyatt so the food should be great.

I am being picky though as it is a good hotel, I just feel it calls itself a Grand Hyatt and apart from apearance it is just a very good hotel.

Stayed at this hotel for 3 nights.
Well located very near the 3rd Circle. The 1st Circle is walk-able (took me about 30 minutes to get back from Rainbow Street). Wherever you are in the city – as long as you can see the Le Royal Hotel, you can find the Hyatt.
Had booked the airport pick-up service, which at JD35 is more expensive than a taxi (about JD20) but then had to cancel it as a friend offered to pick me up instead. The hotel were absolutely fine about that - Dina, the concierge, I found to be one of the most helpful I have ever experienced – nothing was ever too much trouble.
I was upgraded into one of the non-smoking refurbished rooms – nice large double bed, excellent pillows, plenty of complimentary bottled water and a bowl of fresh fruit on arrival. The bathroom was spacious enough for my needs (separate shower / wet-room) and the bath was large and deep.
The room was spotlessly clean and I could not detect any hint of a smell of smoke. Maybe I was fortunate but it was one of the things I was dreading (read reports of ANY hotel in Jordan!!).
The hotel has numerous restaurants and although I didn’t use any of them, I had a look and they all seemed quite nice. The terrace lounge and bar was popular and quite busy at night.
Breakfast was very good, fantastic range of Arabic and traditional food (buffet) as well as a chef who will cook your eggs to your requirements. The pastry selection was fabulous and there was a selection of about 5 or 6 fresh fruit juices every day. If you get the chance, pay for the bed & breakfast rate rather than buying breakfast daily – it will be cheaper that way.
This is clearly a hotel aimed at the upper / business end of the market – didn’t see a single child in the hotel or around the pool for the four days I was there – heaven!!!
I did take a peek at the gym / spa, which appeared fine – not huge but probably more than adequate.
I used the services of the hotel limo service (through Hertz) to travel to Petra, Dead Sea and Jeresh (all of which were amazing). The service is pricey and if you are on a budget it would be MUCH cheaper to take a bus but you then lose out on the flexibility. I managed to negotiate them down on price a bit. If you are taking this service I can thoroughly recommend the driver I had – Osama. He has a very good grasp of the English language and what he doesn’t know about Jordan (and the world at large!!) probably isn’t worth knowing. He has a great sense of humour and really cares about his customers.
On my final day I checked out in the morning and went to visit Jeresh. On my way to the airport in the afternoon I returned to the hotel and Dina had sorted for me to shower and change in the spa - customer service at its best.
I had a great time at this hotel and hope to return to this fabulous country.
