Odeh, the owner, goes out of his way to make your stay great....

Although, sadly, we only were able to stay one night in the Black Iris, we felt that Odeh became a real friend. He is fun, funny, full of information and can help with anything! Have you ever tried wrapping a slightly delicate camel saddle, for check-in, with no resources? Ask Odeh, he's brilliant! The hotel is very conveniently situated within...

One of the best hotels we stayed in in Jordan. The owner is super friendly and a great source of information about everything to see and do in town and surroundings. The rooms are clean and cosy (we stayed at the back with a view over the garden, very quiet and comfortable). Wi-fi in the room. Breakfast was good too!...

My wife and I (both in our mid 30s) spent three nights in this hotel. The quality to price ratio was fantastic. We enjoyed the peace of the room (in the afternoon and in the night) and very sincere conversations with the owner even during the time when the hotel was almost full. The owner, Ohde, is a professional cook...

I stayed here with my mum & sister (we're in our 30s) and it was the perfect choice.
