We booked 3 nights at the Al Anbat II but when we checked in we were put in the Al Anbat III which was right next door so this review is really about the rooms in the III but it was the same staff and the staffed reception was at the II.
This was the cheapest place we could find for the three days we spent in Petra and it was definitely worth the savings in money. If you are traveling on a budget this is a good choice. The room was big for a budget place with a comfortable king bed. It was ok clean but not spic and span. You had to request the hot water to be turned on if you wanted a shower which was kind of annoying. We didn't ad the meal pkg and I wouldn't recomend it based on price. Breakfast was included but for a dinner pkg it was 10 more USD a night and we ate ok cheap meals at local restaurants for a bit less. Shawarmas and falafal sandwiches are also easy to find for much cheaper. The breakfast wasn't that great. It was ok and got the job done but not great. The man who ran the place was very friendly and pleasant. I felt like he was attentive to our needs and requests. He also did not charge us for the wifi although the website said there would be a 5 USD charge. The wifi was really good and extremely fast although it only worked in one half of the room.
The hotel is up a hill from Petra. It is about a 10 to 15 minute walk. Walking down was fine but we usually took a cab back up the hill. The cab drivers in Petra are terrible about trying to overcharge you. It should cost 2 JD for ride up the hill. Be very firm. Don't pay more than 3 JD. A few times we started walking away when they wouldn't meet our price and they always then agreed to a reasonable fee.
Overall I thought the place was only ok but, again, it was the cheapest rate we could find. We were happy with our choice based on price. We paid 33 USD a night which was 10 USD cheaper than the next place up. We would stay there again if we went back.
