“Pleasant stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2013 via mobile

Had a two-night stay there and I enjoyed it. Rooms are tiny but comfortable and clean.
Good breakfast and they organize sometimes a delicious buffet at evening. A good way to meet other travellers.
Staff was friendly, funny and helpful. Free transportation in the morning to Petra.
Generally good value for the money and I would say one of the best places to stay in Jordan.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2013

I'm a seasoned backpacker after a year on the road and I've stayed in all sorts of places, good/bad, luxury/budget. In hotspots like Petra, what you're looking for is someone honest and can help you through the tourism skin so you can see Petra for yourself.

Cleopetra Hotel is an absolute gem. The owner did more than anyone could have asked for.

He arranged a trip to wadi rum (including transport), arranged a reliable transport from wadi rum to aqaba (notice - nothing to do with coming back), invaluable tips about getting to/from Petra (we were the FIRST through the Siq in the morning, transport to the airport (after a second stay at cleopetra) and even buying local sweets for me after the local bakery tried to charge inflated prices.

Cleopetra is a clean and friendly place. Lifts to Petra entrance were free and it's only a 2 JD taxi ride back if you are worn out after hiking through Petra all day. The breakfast was good and one night there was the option of a home cooked meal for a mere 6 JD. Well worth it. For some reason our bed had just half a covering sheet, but the staff was happy to give us a bigger sheet. Also we had to ask for towels, and they were happily provided.

Cleopetra Hotel is a very nice hotel for people who are looking for some cheap hotel in Wadi Musa with a good value for money. At first, we wanted to sleep on the roof, but when we arrived, the man that welcomed us, Mosleh, explained that it was impossible because of the wind: they had taken out all the equipments on the roof, so we had to take a room. At first, we were a little bit confused, because we had a tight budget, but we could book a single room for two (with a huge bed !) and we had a reduction because of the desagrement.
So pay attention if you want to sleep on the roof, because it depends on the weather.
The hotel has been renovated soon, so the room are quite nice and clean. The staff was really helpful, especially to organise the transfer to the Wadi Rum with the bus. And even though Wadi Musa was quite far from the entrance of Petra, the hotel drove us there every morning, and we could come back by foot without any problem.

We have found this hotel by accident – the bus driver dropped us off in front of the hotel – and we made a good choice. We stayed here for two nights. The rooms were clean with a beautiful view at whole Wadi Musa. You can use a taxi to Petra for free and there is good breakfest too. The stuff was really helpful and they even organized for us transport to Madaba. High recommended.

we only staid for a quick night with a group of 13 friends, but I just wanted to thank Mosleh for his professionalism and friendliness...he disserves the great reviews which have already been written about his warmth welcome.
All the best

I stayed here with two other travelers- we were so happy to have found Cleopetra. The staff were all exceptionally kind. Mosleh really knows how to make people feel welcome and taken care of- he took care of everything we needed while we were there and helped us on to our next destination. We were pleasantly surprised that the hotel sometimes offers homemade dinners for its guests (delicious!) so along with their breakfast buffet, we didn't really need to go anywhere else! I could not recommend it more highly!
