Base on good trip advisor review, we booked our stay in Al Rashid Hotel before travelling to Petra, Jordan.
The entrance of the hotel is just perfect though parking space is small. Our driver had difficulty maneuvering the van. We checked- in late but the receptionist was so helpful and directed us outside the hotel just across the street to get our dinner. The first ever Jordan food/dinner we had, as recommended by the receptionist, did not satisfy our taste. Also, since we arrived late, no one assisted us to bring our luggage up to our room but we were shown how to use the TV, unexpectedly, the only English entertainment we can watch is BBC world. The following morning was a little bit disaster because there was no cold water on the shower. It was sorted out during the day I supposed because there was cold water when we came back from Petra. Over all the inclusive breakfast was nice though limited choices but dinner was so lovely and affordable ( 8 dinar per head with starter, main course, sweets and coffee/tea).
The best part is the very attentive and caring staff: Laith and Waill (reception), Mohammed (waiter, cook, maintenance, porter, etc...) and the tall guy akhmed or ahmad.
In conclusion, the hotel is clean, in a very strategic place, food is acceptable, good customer service, affordable and comfortable.
Will definitely come back for a bedouine night and will recommend to friends.
