“Cheap nice clean rooms, but funny atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

Because of other peoples recommendations we stayed here last week (end Jan 2013). We were very impressed by the staff and the rooms. We had a proper sit down area in one half of the room. Compared to other hotels 50 JD for this is very good (room of a 5 star hotel).
On the negative side. There are a lot of local men hanging around; smoking (indoors), staring at you. The breakfast is ok, but is very random and seems to have a lot of dinner leftovers on it (our assumption after trying baked potato, hotdog pieces and pizza for breakfast).

We spent three nights at the Larsa and were very comfortable indeed. The attractively furnished twin room was large and the beds more than single size. The bathroom had everything we needed including some nice toiletries. We deliberately chose it as it was out of the city centre as we were travelling by car and didn't want the hassles of city centre traffic. It was very convenient for the main roads to Jerash and Madaba. The City Mall is close by, as is a delightful coffee shop called la Vida Cake, which has the most wonderful cakes and biscuits. The food at the hotel was good. The staff was very pleasant and helpful, allowing me to use a computer for my e-mail free of charge. Reception will arrange a taxi at a reasonable price for wherever you want to go. In all, a very pleasant stay indeed.

It was our first night in Jordan, as we booked the standard room we were not expecting a lot from it. We wanted just a bad and a shower after the long flight. But we were really surprised, the bad was big and very comfortable, very clean room, some alterations had been recently made in the room: new furniture, the walls were repainted. During our trip in Jordan it was the best hotel we stayed in. Not far from hotel is amazing Automobile museum, we walked there by foot but eventialy it is better to take a taxi, as it is scary to cross the street.

Though it is out of the centre of the city, the huge City Mall is not far away. Spent 4 nights here and thoroughly enjoyed it, the rooms are clean and stylish, all the staff are friendly and helpful.
The evening menu is not extensive but is very good. We had issues with our tour and the Hotel was brilliant in helping us. I would definitely stay here again!!
Ask at Reception about taxis to Downtown and the Citadel ... and definitely ask them about what you should be charged, they will tell you to make sure do not not meet the rogue driver who will charge you the earth ( thankfully 99% of the taxis are great) ... make sure you get dropped at the hotel entrance so if there is a problem hotel security can help.

Room Tip: The area is quite even though the Kings highway is not that far away. No problems with rooms just th...

We stayed here for two nights on a group tour of Jordan.
The rooms were being refurbished and were comfortable and clean. Some of the light shades still had the wrappers on them! The bathrooms were functional - with hot water.
Location wise, this hotel seems a long way from anything that you might want to see - there doesn't seem to be any eating options within walking distance other than a pizza place. We ate in the hotel on 3 occasions. The food was all tasty and hot. Wine and Amstel was available. The sandwich sizes are generous. The hotel has a big bar area. Service was a little slow as most of the stock is not held at the bar.
Wifi is available and free.
Negatives - the swimming pool could do with a good tidy up. It's down a little alley by the side of the hotel with wires hanging down and broken manhole covers. The pool was also freezing. Having abandoned the pool, we headed for the jacuzzi - that was out of order!

Situated in what seemed like the middle of nowhere. We stayed here for the first and last night of our trip round Jordan. We were able to overlook the half finished feel of our rooms at the start because we were excited but it was a real anticlimax to the end of our trip to return. Room service food was inedible. On the plus side the staff seemed nice and the restaurant area was pleasant. Pity it had a loud TV on all the time.
