“Could be a great place!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2014

We stayed in Grand View Hotel on 15-16/02/2014.
When we came it was unfortunately raining and of course the view is not that great in the clouds. However the next morning we enjoyed a splendid view on the canyon and it was worth the distance to Petra.
The hotel was empty (definitely out of the touristy season + Syrian crisis affecting tourism in the region), only two other guests were there. We didn't have dinner at the hotel but had breakfast.
The staff was very kind and helpful.
However we think some improvements could be brought to the place: a bus service to Petra for the guests at fixed hours and maybe a sexier breakfast with fresh juice (not powdered juice mixed with water) and fruits (not canned fruits).
But we liked this place anyhow although it's a little worn out. There's a little resemblance with the hotel in the Shining which makes it weirdly touching...
The rooms were very clean and comfortable.

Room Tip: Obviously ask for a room with a view!

We had a lovely stay at this very quaint hotel. Its the first hotel in a line of hotels at Petra, and has got a breath taking view ! All the rooms are on the ground level and overlook the valley. The rooms are spacious and bright. We traveled with 2 small kids and were given a decent room with 3 double beds ! It was quite sufficient. The bathroom was very clean and neat too. The rooms are well equipped with heaters and the hotel lobby has a wifi service. The breakfast was a good spread too. By car, you would be ten minutes from Petra city.
I would definitely recommend this beautiful hotel !

We spent two nights here, but as soon as we arrived we were disappointed with our choice.
The hotel is far from everything, except for the luxury Marriot hotel (200 m uphill), so taxi drivers will ask you a lot to drive you there or from there to Petra's visitors centre.
The hotel was surely nice when built, but now it's just old and sadly on the sunset boulevard.
Rooms have very old furnishing (but not antique), even if bathrooms have been renovated a few years ago; the door of our room didn't close well, so we were worried about noise from the aisle: but there has been no noise, since there was no other guest! (except an italian family, far down the aisle).
The bed linens were clean, but the bedspread was not. When we arrived, at noon, the room temperature was 12 °C! When we came back in the evening, it was about 18° C; just during the night it reached 20°C. There's just an old cathod ray TV, with some satellite channels, but the TV quality is very very poor, so you have no other choice than sleep in the evening: there's no wifi in the rooms, so you should have to stay in the cold hall even for writing an e-mail or surfing the net!
The breakfast is plentyful, but not well suited for those who don't like salty food in the morning (jam and honey are given in small economic packagings, as in 1 star hotels).
Nevertheless, you pay the same rates as in 4 stars hotels!
My advice is not to spend a single night here until they drop their rates 30-40% off!

We were the only people in the hotel and petra itself was pretty empty, not many tourists. The hotel itself was beautiful and the view was indeed spectacular. I was able to take some breathtaking photos as the sun was setting and rising. The staff were very kind and helpful. We had a wonderful stay and enjoyed our trip.

The Grand View Resort certainly lives up to its name - the view from the large terrace and from our balcony was stunning! The staff was very friendly and helpful, we had a lovely dinner outside and the room was spacious and very clean. The hotel is close to the entrance to Petra and the large pool was perfect for relaxing after a long visit of Petra. I can highly recommend the hotel for visiting Petra!

We arrived late in the evening and the staff was incredibly helpful and accommodating. They set up dinner for us outside by the pool so that we could enjoy the view. The hotel is on a ridge a few minutes outside of Petra so that you avoid the tourist feeling of the center of town and can appreciate the desert around you. I would highly recommend it for anyone visiting Petra!
