Our travel agent booked us into this hotel before I read the reviews. When we arrived I expected to see cockroaches in every corner, sewage backing up in the bathroom and dirty sheets with bedbugs. Fortunately, we experienced none of the above. The bathroom was decent, not perfectly immaculate but sanitary. It also had an abundant supply of really hot water which was nice. The bedroom was faded, with old upholstery which showed its age and dirt. The wall sconces had melted shades which were disconcerting and the bed linens should have been retired at least 10 years ago. They were clean but very worn. The duvet cover had numerous pills all over it, but again after close inspection and smell, they had recently been washed with bleach. I am happy to report the mattress was brand new, because I did check for bed bugs. So while it doesn't sound particularly charming, we weren't uncomfortable staying here. It certainly was not the best hotel I have stayed in but it also wasn't the worst. It may be the best Madaba has to offer though. What others refer to as hotels, look like hostels, family homes or scary places. Madaba does not seem like a place to find luxury anything. People go to Amman for that. So, in conclusion, if you have to stay here it's not so bad. However, DO NOT expect a luxury (3 star hotel, which it is rated.) My favorite part of the room was the Barbie stickers someone put on the safe and have remained. It adds a quirky feel to an otherwise pretty outdated space.
