We stayed two different times at the Rumman, using it as our "base" in Jordan.
The reception staff was superb, especially Maysa, who speaks perfect English and is both exceptionally charming and efficient. After learning we were heading to Petra, she was concerned that the accommodations there might be full, so we were glad to accept her offer to phone and arrange a budget hotel there for us. Her suggestions for restaurants and places to shop and sightsee in Madaba were excellent. On our last day, after checking out of our room we had a wait of a couple of hours before going to the airport, and she made us very comfortable in the lobby, ensuring we had beverages and the use of a computer.
Rooms and furnishings are fairly basic but large, clean, and comfortable. The breakfast included in the room price is simple but adequate, available buffet style in the large restaurant area . The hotel had problems a couple times with a pump furnishing water to our floor while we were there, but the staff was very concerned and apologetic and managed to get the water flowing again each time.
The location is within about a 10 minute walk of the central shopping area and sights, slightly farther away than some other hotels, but not enough to matter to us.
We were able to leave part of our luggage at the hotel while we toured Jordan and Israel. Before the second stay we phoned the hotel reception from Israel and arranged to have a taxi meet us at the northern border crossing, as we were then without our own rental car. We liked the car and driver selected by the hotel so much that we later arranged to have him take us to the airport.
