Located a 5 minute walk from the entrance to Petra, this hotel was perfect. Staff were warm and welcoming and extremely friendly & helpful. Rooms were clean and well furnished, though the fridge didnt work. Bathroom was large and spacious though there were some challenges with hot water! The breakfast was good, lovely coffee. A great spot to base yourself for a visit to Petra. Unlike previous comments, I would very much recommend the Petra by night excursion - try to do it before you visit during the day and it gives a really unique first experience - hold back and let the crowds go on ahead for a magical walk by candlelight

The hotel located just next to the Movenpick, around 100 meters from the visitor center which allowed us to join the boring Petra by Night (not recommended) without even using a taxi! Rooms are quite big & bed is comfortable, The furniture are quite old & not modern at all however in a good condition...Dinner was excellent, breakfast quite basic (no salads, no olives etc...)

Bottom line, very good hotel to stay at for those need basic accommodation with excellent location!

Room Tip: It's all about service & location, those both at the top!

The hotel shuts off the water heater for most of the day and all night. I begged, I pleaded, I was denied. I find a cold shower an unpleasant experience in January in Petra.

Wifi is available in the rooms, for 1 JOD/hour. A very indifferent breakfast is included.

This is the second time i visit Petra and as always its magnificent.The hotel is really nice and pretty,stuff is pleasant and helpful and speaking good English,rooms are specious and clean,we didn't quite manage to switch on the TV,but its not for viewing TV we came for. And the food is really really good-and great choice of different salads,meats,rice.We had the supper and the breakfast included and then we came back for dinner as well,only 15 $ a person,the fish was especially tasty. And of course the greatest plus the entrance to Petra is couple of minutes away.

We arrived there last weekend in the middle of a snow storm just a little while after the roads opened for access to Wadi Musa. We were received in a very friendly way and reached our room to rest after quite a wild trip to get there. I happens to be the second time we go there and the rooms were good as usual and the food very tasty. The hotel might not be a big and luxurious place but the attitude of the people that work there made our stay really nice.

Room Tip: The important thing about the hotel is that it is so close to Petra.

We arrived in Wadi Musa without a hotel booking, and the Silk Road was the first we tried with a room available in the Petra gate area. We received a warm and friendly welcome from the older gentleman who appeared to be the head honcho and having checked the room we negotiated a suitable rate for the three bed room bearing in mind we only needed two beds. The room was really large and had air-con, not that we needed it. The beds were extremely comfortable and bedding clean. There is a TV and amongst the hundreds of Arabic channels you should find BBC World & CNN (I chanced upon camel racing whilst channel hopping) The bathroom was also quite large and has a bath. I fancied a soak after a very long day in Petra but by the time I had stripped down, I discovered there was no bath plug. I would imagine one is available but with water being a precious commodity they possibly don't encourage the use of the bath ? My partner had taken the option of the Turkish bath and body scrub etc. in the women's hammam downstairs from the hotel (the men's hammam is on the ground floor at street level. Breakfast was buffet style offering a wide selection of the usual fare. On the second day there were even some hot sausages on offer.

Although the Silk Road is on the road leading to Petra visitor centre (less than five minute walk) it is actually the back of the hotel, the main entrance and reception is at the back(?) of the hotel. You can however access the hotel from the main street using stairs or the lift. On the main street under Silk Road is Petra's Kitchen a restaurant / cooking school where you can learn how to cook and eat your own Jordanian dishes. We didn't try it but it appeared to be very popular the two evenings we were there. If like me you enjoy a beer after a long hot day you will not get one at the Silk Road however there are a couple of options quite close. The Wrangler bar (?) is in the Petra Palace Hotel a couple of minutes walk on the main street away fro Petra gate. You can't miss the Guinness sign protruding from the front of the bar. On our visit you needed to enter via main hotel entrance. It is a small bar serving beer, wine and spirits. The price of the beer ranged from 4.5JD to 5JD (actual price) about the same as most café bars we used during our tour of Jordan.

Your other option. the Cave Bar in the Petra Gate Guest house complex is a different matter. Located down main street and through Petra visitor centre, the bar is built into a cave with ancient columns outside. They had draught Amstel which at first glance at the menu seemed to be priced a touch high at 5.5JD for 500ml. HOWEVER look closely at the bottom of the menu and you will find that this price excludes a 10% service charge AND the 16% government tax and you end up paying 7JD !!! The exclusion of these two hidden charges was fairly common in touristy type restaurants so be aware. But if you're gagging after a long day in Petra it is conveniently located next to the gate on your way out !!!
