“Good quality/price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2014

The good points first : the price is very nice because of the size of the room. Very big bed.super Great breakfast. Poeple very nice. Only 10 min in car to entrance of petra site. The bad points : the bath room clean but old installation. The wifi doesn't pass in room. Window in our room doesn't close entierly so there was some noise from street. And you need a car to go diner in town.

Very clean hotel. Room was good with strong airco. Swimming pool area (with a nice view) and Turkish bath area were also nice. Breakfast was amazing, but dinner not so much. You can easily find a cheaper and better dinner in the neighbouring town (Wadi Musa). Sound insulation is bad so if you are unlucky and if you are early sleepers you could have a bad night.

Beware of the shuttle bus service. They told us it costs 1.5dinar per person to the visitor center of Petra. But a taxi is 2dinar so if you are at least 2 people the taxi will be cheaper. Additionally we had to wait 25mins for the shuttle bus to arrive (the ride is only 5mins), even though we had told reception the evening before what time we wanted to take the shuttle bus. All this while we made an effort to wake up really early to see Petra before it gets packed with tourists. I would certainly recommend taking a taxi and avoiding the shuttle bus. Not many taxis pass this hotel in the early morning so I would get a taxi number the day before and call them when you are ready. Our experience in this hotel was 3 star but I gave it 4 star because if we had known the above things beforehand, as hopefully now you will, we could have turned it into a 4star experience (by taking a taxi instead of the shuttle and eating dinner in the town).

The quality of the room sector at this hotel is excellent. Tv, super beds and linens, and very, very clean. In the down side is the food quality at the buffets. Not expensive and copious but also lacking in freshness. Nice large pool. Wifi barely works in the hotel.

We had a great time at the Alanbat hotel, location and service were of high quality. A car was always availble to drive us to the Petra site entrance and to pick us at the end of the day. Everyone was really helpful, giving some a lot of advice about What to do in Petra and during the rest of our trip. Great experience, I recommend it for sure!

Недорогой, но очень милый и чистый отель, с уютными номерами с красивой панорамой за окном и совсем недалеко от Петры. Шведский стол, очень вкусная еда!обслуживание на уровне, есть бассейн и турецкая баня, короче арабская сказка! Владелец отеля очень милый товарищ, позаботится о вас как о своих родственниках. Great hotel. It's about a 5 min drive to Petra gate. The staff very friendly and the personal too. The room was very clean and comfortable and the view was amazing. Beautiful pool and Turkish bath. Breakfast and dinner very good and tasty. A great value for money option. Just go and see for yourself. Thank you, especially to Mr. Khaldon Amra!!!

The Alanbat was a great hotel. From the outside it doesn't look much, but inside the rooms are spacious and the views were fantastic. Everywhere was spotlessly clean. All the staff were very friendly and couldn't do enough for you. As the Hotel is on the outskirts of the town we ate in the restaurant on both nights that we stayed. The food was a buffet and was excellent. The breakfast was good too with a good choice. The swimming pool was a good size and a lovely way to cool down after visiting Petra.
Would definitely recommend this Hotel.

Room Tip: Reception is on the sixth floor, best room with a view are on the fifth.
