The Al Qidra is very clean and offers great value in the busy spot in Aqaba.
The owner is very friendly and helpful.
Breakfast is fair and has decent variety.
One thing that has not been mentioned in previous reviews and might be useful to know is : the hotel is set in a rather busy road with a lot of noise at night and the curtains provided do not work properly as blinds so not ideal for sleeping.
If you are in Aqaba for diving for a couple of days I think this is an option worth considering over the other mid range hotels in town. If you want to enjoy the beach then pick in order the kempinski and the intercontinental.
