“Good value accomodation very near entrance to Petra Heritage Site”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2014

The Edom Hotel is a very convenient hotel for any visit to the historical Petra site; it’s literally 150m up the road from the entrance. It’s a basic but comfortable hotel, with balconies on each room (from what I could see) and the buffet breakfast and dinner was extensive. We stayed as part of a tour so I can’t comment on value for money, but I could recommend this hotel as a lower cost alternative to the fancier hotels in Petra.

This hotel is an excellent choice for staying in "downtown Petra" - the center of Wadi Musa. It is located about 200 meters and a few minutes walk from the visitors center. There is a huge choice of restaurants, bars and shops right at your doorstep. The lobby is nice and spacious. Rooms are good size and are well equipped even if the furniture is somewhat tired. The bathrooms are good size and very clean. I had plenty of hot water, but the water pressure at the shower was very poor. Service is excellent and the front desk could not be more helpful or nicer. Breakfast is nice with an excellent choice of salads, hummus, cheese and the such. They have only instant coffee (not even black Jordanian coffee).
Definitely recommended for stay in Wadi Musa when visiting Petra

The location is what this hotel has going for it. Nice front lobby, but the rooms were not in good condition (sockets falling out of the wall), old, tired furniture. To get to our elevator, we had to carry our suitcases up three (albeit short) staircases….each about 8 steps, just to get to the elevator. Staff was friendly, but in short supply when we arrived (hence we were left to manage our luggage and the stairs by ourselves). Breakfast was adequate, but nothing special. I would say this is a typical 3 star hotel in Jordan (which would be a 2 star hotel in most other countries).

Really friendly, helpful staff who advised us on best times to visit the sights when there were fewer people about. Comfortable rooms which were clean and very welcoming after a hard day of walking. Breakfast was simple but substantial. Very reasonably priced hotel considering how close it is to the main gates of Petra. I would definitely recommend it as a great place to stay as a base for exploring Petra.

We spent very little time in the hotel but it was perfect for what we needed. Very close to Petra visitor Centre, literally a 3 min walk. Decent sized room, clean enough, decent shower and breakfast was yummy, a good start to a day of hiking through Petra. Very helpful and friendly staff. Here is a little supermarket at the end of the lane, very handy. Fridge in the room to pack a picnic for the next day. No complaints :) p.s. Be warned for the mosque at 5ish am!

The hotel generously allowed us an extra 3 hours before checkout to enable us to have a full day in Petra. Location couldn't t have been better and breakfast was generous (buffet) included in price. Rooms were adequate though not luxurious and neat and clean, service requests prompt and friendly.

We stayed here two nights and i'll definetely come back there the next time i'll bring friends and families to Petra. Less than 5 minutes from Petra entrance, very nice service, room clean and functional, food average but if you're looking for variety or more fancy, some restaurants are around. And prices are very good. My best tip: the breakfast box if you're courageous to do the opening of Petra. I enjoyed my breakfast overlooking the site from one of the highest trails. A must!!
