“Highly recommended for Petra!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2013

I seem to have struck gold with my choice of hotels for the Jordan trip!! I picked two budget hotels – one in Amman and one in Wadi Musa and both have exceeded my expectations. Al Rashid hotel in Wadi Musa is a lovely little hotel run by a lovely man called Laith. The hotel was renovated only a year ago so everything looks new. I had a nice clean room with great shower and room heating facilities. To top it off, they offer the best breakfast that I’ve ever experienced in a budget hotel – unlimited Pita Bread, Hummus, Yoghurt, Olives, Omelettes and a ‘Fuul’ that probably came straight from heaven. Believe me, you HAVE to try that Fuul!! My only regret is that I couldn’t try out on my last day as I had to leave for the airport very early in the morning. The hotel is located at the centre of Wadi Musa – Petra Visitor Centre is a nice 15 minutes downhill walk from the hotel. On the way back, it’s a steep 20 minutes uphill walk (which wasn’t an issue for me being a long distance runner) – but you can always take a taxi for only 2 JD. All the necessary shops are located just beside the hotel. There’s a nice restaurant called Al Wadi located just around the corner. Laith was very helpful in arranging the trip to Wadi Rum and managed to get me a great deal. All in all I couldn’t have asked for more. Al Rashid hotel is highly recommended for anyone visiting Petra.
One piece of Advice for would be travellers to Petra, you need to spend at least two full days in Petra to take it all in. It’s simply amazing!

For a budget hotel, this place hits on all of the points that are important to me:

* Rooms: Spacious and immaculately clean. I was a solo traveller staying in a room w/ 2 twin beds. They also have rooms with King beds which are even more spacious, but I was satisfied with this one. There are plenty of drawers, a closet, desk and nightstand. Plenty of power outlets, efficient heating (and I presume AC), satellite TV, and **wifi in the room**! The shower is clean, modern, and steamy hot and the bathroom is clean and well stocked.

* Breakfast: This place has the best free breakfast I've come across in a budget hotel. Each day I had a whole spread of plates including: Small omelette, hummus, beans, cream cheese, olives & cheese, cold cuts, jam, and plenty of pita. Plus tea, NesCafe and Tang. Since most guests will spend their day hiking at Petra, this is a great way to start the day while saving time and money.

* Location: At the main intersection of uptown Wadi Mussa, next door to Saba'a Hostel and near a variety of restaurants. It's a 10 minute walk down to the Petra visitors center and my mini-bus drop-off was 5 minutes away.

* Staff: The staff was always friendly, helpful, and honest with pretty good English. They really made me feel welcome and were helpful in giving directions, setting up transportation, etc. The lobby and dining room are both expansive and clean, if a little cold in winter.

I can't say enough about this place. I often stay in hostels but sometimes the privacy and comfort of a good budget hotel can be just the right thing to relax and recharge. Al Rashid Hotel costs a little more than a private hostel room but is on an entirely different planet in terms of quality.

I'd definitely recommend Al Rashid to anyone looking for budget-to-moderate lodging in Petra!

Room Tip: Rooms with a king bed have more open space. I didn't really have a view but some rooms might.

Good value! Really confortable and clean rooms. The staff very friendly and helpful. Nearby many cheap restaurants with tradicional food. From outside the hotel looks old, but inside is completely renovate. Nice breakfast and wi-fi included in the price. Just 15 minutes walking to the entrance of Petra.

We spent two nights here while visiting Petra. The hotel is nice and the room we had was big and comfortable. There have cable TV and Wi Fi in the room, and hot water all day. Breakfast was abundant and tasty and the staff was very friendly and helpful. All that for a moderate price. In conclusion we join all the others and highly recommend this hotel.

Staff was very nice and helpful. The recepcionist gave us very nice tips for visiting around, restaurants and even about our next destinations. The place is lovely, very nicely decorated, very clean and warming. Breakfast was complete and ok. Very comfortable bed. Great location, close to city centre and Petra.
I highly reccomend this hotel for your visit to Wadi Musa.
