“Comfortable, Clean and Reasonably Priced”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2014

We stayed at the Amra Place for 4 days while seeing Petra. The hotel is located near the city center, about 10 minutes drive to Petra. We found the hotel to be clean with quality bedding and relatively updated bathroom. Wifi was accessable from the room. The meals are buffet and were wonderful. The staff was courteous, friendly and attentive. We had a rent car so it was no problem getting to Petra, but if you don't, taxis are plentiful at all times of the day. Unless it's important to be in lodging right next to Petra's entrance, we couldn't recommend a better accomodation from which to experience Petra.

Room Tip: All rooms seem to face the direction of Petra and are equal in terms of views and quietness.

We were coming from Amman and wanted a nice clean hotel to stay in while we explore Petra. The manager of the hotel is a very nice guy. We had arrived late & were very tired he suggested us that we change first & than go for Irish Bath (for refreshing) & than have your dinner but by the time we got free from bath it was already 2300 Hrs but he waited for us as the kitchen was closed & we were served hot food with some servers waiting for us to serve. Amazing. Next day at breakfast he explained us how to go around Petra & what all to see & buy even.

I strongly recommend the Hotel & its Manager.

Thanks Amra for treating us so well.

We loved staying at the Amra Palace. It's a very quaint, Old World style hotel with a courteous and attentive staff, very clean and comfortable rooms, truly excellent and fresh food (with plenty of vegetarian options), and a shuttle service to Petra a few minutes away. We highly recommend this lovely hotel and commend. The manager of the hotel visited everyone's table at dinner to give a welcome: a nice touch and a class act. Well done.

Very friendly, helpful and efficient staff. Stayed over Xmas. Most hotels will put on Xmas buffets as indeed did the Amra Palace. Brillliant buffet and thanks to all the staff in making it special. However, this is the first hotel I've ever stayed in where they also gave everyone a Xmas present. Santa came and left this for you they said smiling brightly. Really lovely people, great stay and very comfortable rooms. In spite if it being not quite warm enough, I had a dip in the gorgeous swimming pool too. This hotel also serves a wonderful range of teas. Shuttle buses ran down to the Petra site morning and evening!

Stayed in this hotel for 2 nights. The rooms are almost too small, The bathroom is very small and old. But it's clean, the beds are good for the tired traveller after a day in Wadi Rum or Petra. The food is full with good intentions but the final result is average. They have a nice small swimming pool and a Turkish hamam. The service and hospitality is very good.
It is a good place to stay if you need just a clean room and a good rest. If you want to stay in the hotel all day, it's not the place for you.

They offered great survice, clean room and breakfast. The price of room is affordable. It is convenience for us to take shuttle bus to Petra in the morning. It is so great to enjoy in comfort after walking all day in Petra!!

My cousin and I (both young-in-spirit grandmothers) stayed at his hotel for two nights and three days while touring Petra on our own. We enjoyed our stay, and are contemplating a return visit with family. The location of the hotel is very convenient--close to the town in a quiet spot, and at a reasonable walking distance from Petra, should one sleep in (as we did) and miss the shuttles offered by the hotel. The food in the hotel restaurant was excellent, and we enjoyed having breakfast at the outdoor tables. The pool, and hammam (Turkish bath) facilities were wonderful for relaxing sore muscles after long days at Petra. The room was comfortable and clean, but we would have liked to have a second chair, a few more coat hangers maybe a small cabinet with a couple of drawers for personal things, maybe a small shelf in the bathroom for toiletries (living out of suitcases was somewhat inconvenient.) WiFi did not work in our room, but was available in the lobby.

The staff is extremely helpful and attentive. "No problem" is an answer you hear in response to practically any request, and, indeed, every request was accommodated--from arranging transportation, giving directions, helping with phonecalls to locals, solving Internet access problems, changing money, allowing us to shower and change after we checked out of our room etc., etc. But what really set them apart in my mind was their wit and wonderful sense of humour. A real treat to deal with them :)
