“Diffently a palace!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Excellent service. All problems where quickly resolved. Breakfast was a nice spread. Got laptops to take to the room. When I had problems getting on Jett Bus, management made some phone calls, got me reservation. Rooms were nicely done. Double-pane means you barely hear prayer calls.

A warm and welcome hotel. Stayed 2 nights with family to explore Petra and loved the hotel. Very familiar place. They help with everything. Very nice beds and breakfast and dinner wonderful. We ordered lunchboxes for the exploring of Petra and they included a lot! Even a free shuttlebus to Petra entrance.The pool was nice as the jaccuci. Some of us did the turkish spa and really enjoyed it. I really recommend this hotel to travellers. You will be taken care of totally. We even arranged for pickup at airport and a transport back to Aqaba. Very nice.

Stayed for 4 nights at this very good, clean and friendly hotel. All the staff were very friendly and welcoming all the time. Information from the front desk was very good. They had a free shuttle bus to take you to and from Petra 3 times a day. It didn't turn up one day and when we called the hotel to find out where it was we were told to get a taxi and the hotel paid for it!! What service!! Nice little pool which was a god send having spent all day walking around Petra but beware, its cold!! But refreshing lol. They do charge for WiFi but if you ask nicely they give it to you for free. The only negative comment that I have is that we found the food, although in abundance was a bit bland for our tastes. Breakfast was excellent, but the evening meal suffered. Each evening there was lamb, beef, fish and a veggie option with rice but it lacked taste and as a result on two evenings I had salad which was very good as there were lots to choose from.

Room Tip: rooms on back of hotel quieter as away from mosque which does wake you at 0600 each day!

We stayed 3 nights here and all of the staff were so friendly, in particular the guy who brought in our bags from the car, he smiled and welcomed us every time we saw him which makes such a difference.
The room was lovely, breakfast was good and the location was fine up in Wadi Musa. We were good as we had a car so were able to go when and where we wanted, ample parking at the hotel.
If we return to Petra this is definitely where we'll stay. Oh we asked for free wifi and were given it.

We stayed at The Amra for two nights early November 2012 and could not have asked for anything better. From the moment we stepped out of the car after a long hot day in Wadi Rum, until we departed, we were treated like part of a family. The hospitality from staff was exceptional; catering and accommodation excellent, and the Turkish sauna not to be missed. You will not be disappointed.

We stayed at the Amra Palace for 3 nights and can rate it as a very enjoyable experience. Our greeting on arrival was welcoming and a little humorous. Our room was good, it was a little small but in Petra you dont spend much time in your room. Service was excellent throughout our entire stay. Can highly recommend the Turkish bath, great after returning from the hike up to the Monastery! Food was great, wide selection for both breakfast and dinner.

The first contact with Khaled the owner by email set the tone for the visit. He called me personally to confirm the booking and offered help if we needed it.
The rooms are small, but then you are not in Wadi Musa to stay in your room! The beds are comfortable and the triple glazing meant the close proximity of the mosque was not a problem - or maybe we were just exhausted after all the walking! Bathrobe and slippers were waiting in the wardrobe and very much appreciated.
We were looking forward to the pool but it was not heated and a little chilly at the end of October, though it didn't stop the kids from splashing around.
The breakfast and dinner buffets were varied and great value. The Jordanian dish on offer each evening is a nice touch, as is the offer of basic rice and soup for those who might be suffering from an overdose of hummus! They even offer a picnic if you are out for the day visiting Petra.
