“Excellent choice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2014

Can't fault this hotel, at just over US$50 per night for a huge double room with a view of the mountains. The hotel is away from central Petra/Wadi Musi. We chose it because we had a rental car so could get around on our own. It's on the King's Highway into town, though the road is not very busy or noisy. There is plenty of parking across the street. There is no wifi in the rooms, but good wifi in the large bar and restaurant, which have good sunset views. Breakfast had a decent selection, and the dinner buffet was excellent. The shower was excellent - hot and very powerful. There's a nice pool area, though it was too cold to swim. No complaints, really!

As a person who has traveled to many exciting and elegant places around the world, I was astounded to discover the regal Alanbat Hotel, with its palace-like, Arabesque ambiance, hearty buffet feasts, festive atmosphere and a international staff scurrying to please. In the belly of the hotel lies a Turkish bath and spa haven, with a full array of amenities. The Olympic-size pool and large dining room is festooned with a take-your breath-away view of local life in the mountains: goat-farmers herding their flocks to fresh pastures, onyx eyed Bedouins trekking up steep rocky paths and a designer-clad couple careening through the countryside in their sleek Mercedes. Just a ten minute drive from Petra and you are transported into another world---a delightful place where good food, good fellowship and goodwill are incubated. This is Jordanian hospitality at its finest.

Room Tip: The staff are delightful. Tell them what is important to you and trust them to pick the place that w...

I know this charming hotel with familiar atmosphere in top position high above Petra City since 20 years and I still love it. It's the best place to start your trip to ancient Petra . The hotel is is clean, has large rooms, a modern hammam, very helpful and always friendly stuff and offers varied and good food. Last but not least low prices make a stay here absolutely recommendable. The sunset or morning view to the mountains around Petra is extraordinary!

Room Tip: If possible choose a room on the valley side – large with balcony, silent and best view to Petra

The Alanbat Hotel and I think it is the best choice in terms of price and uninviting. Rooms are spacious comfortable rooms, delicious food, cleanliness and service and unparalleled hamam attezzato and clean. Complementing the presentation and exceptional staff is always attentive to customers and esienze great location and free shuttle service to the site of Petra. Try it.
