“For one night more than enough”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2014

It is not a luxury or very cozy hotel, but it is low budget and clean. Spending one night there is absolutely fine and the hotel is located perfectly - 3 min walk to the entrance of Petra. The beds are comfortable, the toilets clean and the breakfast very basic. For this prime location the prices are very low. I can recommend this hotel if you are looking for a basic, cheap hotel.

The only thing that is good about this hotel is that it's near the Petra entrance (if you want to be early just a few minutes and you're right there), plus the room is cheap that comes with breakfast and also a convenience store just at the ground floor.

First thing that you'll notice is that they don't have an elevator. If you have a 20 kgs. of luggage then handle it to someone who's willing to assist. Second thing is the room, nothing fancy though just bed. The bed is not even that clean and there were some strands of hair and dust under the sheet covers. No conformity on their hangers in the closet and some are broken. Third is the WiFi, you can only connect when you're in the reception area. The strongest time to connect is when you're alone at the reception. Breakfast is only good when probably it's your first time in the Middle East.

I wasn't impressed with all of it but value for money is the winner here.

Room Tip: Choose the rooms that are near the stairs going to reception.

Location might be perfect, just few hundred meters from the entrance of Petra, but the room was really bad. Shower hanger was broken. Toilet was very small. The room was old. No elevator. However, breakfast was very nice, full of choice. Staffs were nice. Supermarkets just right down the hotel. However, if you dont mind walking, there are many places to stay in Wadi Musa.

Here you get good value for money. A short 10 min walk to the Petra main entrance, restaurants, and supermarkets are around. You pay just 2 JD to the bus station. A good breakfast are included. The rooms are ok, nothing to complain. And hot water all day along.

We got a good deal at this place for 20 dinar (= euro) per night plus breakfast.
The location is excellent - a short walk to the entrance of Petra, surrounded by restaurants and a good supermarket downstairs for snacks and picnic lunches.
The staff were very friendly and helpful.
The rooms could do with a carpet clean and a coat of paint. We were there in December and the room was cold ... the windows don't actually fit into the window frames so there is a bit of a draft, despite having central heating.

If your in Petra for a couple of days and need a place to stay, then you cant fault Petra Sun Set Hotel for location and price.
About a 10 minute walk from the entrance to Petra and on the 'main drag', so theres a few options restaurants for eating out.
The accommodation is nothing flash - you get what you pay for.
No AC but you get a fan, rooms worn down, bathrooms not the best, wifi only available in reception, breakfast in your standard pita bread, slices of tomato and cucumber with various spreads and tea and coffee facilities.
But like I said, your not paying much and your getting a great location and the rooms are definitely good enough to stay in for a couple of nights.

Stayed there for three nights in October and liked it very much. The single room was clean and the whole hotel was very quiet. The best part is the location, which is only five minutes away from the gate to Petra. Staff are friendly and eager to help. Breakfast is not bad with lots of bread, jams, butter and some cucumber and tomatoes. Wifi is available in lobby area only but it was somehow unavailable while I was for some technical issues.

One problem was that there were not a whole lot of guests while I was there so it was impossible to organize a group for Wadi Rum tour, which was my next destination. But it shouldn't be a big problem since there are lots of travel agencies offering the tour around the hotel. I heard the hotel used to be offering dinner for 7 jd or something but it looks like they stopped offering that, which is a shame given restaurants in Wadi Musa are overpriced in general.

Great value and I'd recommend it to anyone.
