“Great Stay Close to Petra”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2014

If you are looking for a resort experience, this is not your hotel. But if you are looking for a quiet, comfortable stay near Petra, this is a great choice. The views are absolutely incredible! We visited in the winter so I cannot comment on the pool facilities. The facilities are old but clean. It is several miles from the Petra entrance. We had a rental car so it was not a problem and we liked being out of the main noisy town center near the Petra entrance.

Just before we arrived in the hotel we had a problem with our car. We drove to the hotel and after checking in we came with our problem. The hotel staff immediately took action and helped us very well! They called a garage, our car rental company and gave us our options. We could go to our room and relax while they would solve the problem. They came a few times to our room to ask if everything was fine and the next day they solved the problem with our car. The rooms are comfortable, include everything you need, the hotel is not crowded so great for your rest. The swimming pool was cold but the view is fantastic! It has a great location and really helpful staff. The food was good and I recommend people this hotel.

The hotel lives up to its name with a splendid view over the mountains from some rooms and the pool area. Room was clean and comfortable. However, the hotel has some of the worst food I have ever seen. A very mediocre dinner buffet was 25 dinars (about £23). No a la carte or room service. Instead we had an excellent meal at the Marriot next door. Breakfast was mainly tinned and processed food.

The hotel is situated in an amazing location - over viewing the tomb or Aaron. We were disappointed by the low capacity of guest at the hotel. the hotel is old and not well maintained. the food for breakfast was fine but not too great. we arrived for two nights, we did our booking from booking.com and when we decided to leave after the first night, they gave us a price reduction due to our early leave - we were amazed by this act as we were expecting to pay the full price of two night - wow- this is nice of from them to reduce the payment!!
No internet in the room. TV with all channel in English was fine. Toilets in room were renovated and renewed few years ago. The room was old and not so clean. The sheets were with stains.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the pool is amazing. pool area is not nice, it's not a hotel for relaxing, it's...

My husband and I have recently retired, and we have been traveling the world. I was a bit worried when I saw the the reviews on this site about the hotel our agent already booked us for. To my surprise, this hotel have been a true "gem in the desert".

Breathtaking views, great location, a beautiful pool and decent staff. What not to like?

I have loved every aspect of our 8-night-stay. Our room was spacious, clean and modern. The bed is quite comfortable and sheets are crisp.

I don't understand the fuss about food, since we ate at grand view more than once a day,and never did we find a meal less than great! some people traveling with us are picky in general, but were impressed with the food as well.

I wish the hotel staff the best, and I hope they keep up what they are doing.

Room Tip: Pick the valley view rooms, the view is just breathtaking!

We shunned the larger (and uglier) chain hotels in favour of this local one and couldn't have been happier with our choice. Clean, impeccable rooms with large spacious balconies overlooking the pool terrace (which is amazing by the way!!) and the service was second to none. We asked for an early breakfast as we wanted to be in Petra for Sunrise at 6am (well worth it - it was desserted! By 10am it was packed with tourists and camels/donkeys running around) and they served a 4 course breakfast for the 6 of us at 530am. Superb! It is up in the hills away from the hectic town, a much needed escape after long days at Petra (ten min drive to the park entrance). Would highly recommend.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view out over the hills to the back of the hotel - amazing sunsets!
