“So far but so near”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2010

4 of us stayed here and really enjoyed it. A fantastic view and amazing rooms BIG rooms. The staff are the most friendly bunch I have ever met. We were treated like friends. The dropped us to Petra which is a 5 minute drive away at any time we asked and they will collect as well( we used the cheap local taxi to get back usually. The day we were leaving they dropped our luggage down to the bus for us ( we had been out walking) . The only crib we had was the rooms usedfor the Turkish bath- they were covered insmelly mould due to lackof extractor fans. It was so foul that my chest / sinus was clogged. We did use the hot tub but had to leave due to the mouldysmell. But I would 100% stay there again

Very nice hotel. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The rooms were clean and comfortable and the location was excellent. I would recommend this hotel to other visitors. See the difference a family run business can make over the chains.

Me and my husband have reserved a room in Alanbat Hotel. We have had a great stay, we find this hotel very high quality, very clean rooms, and public area, hotel ambiance very warm, very nice designed lobby, very friendly staff. The location of this hotel make it easy for us to access by walking distance to Wadi Musa market also just less than five minute by a cab to Petra entrance. The only thing I would like to see in Petra is the night life (Petra by night) which I will do it next time.
