Friendly and authentic. Aqaba is a great place to visit for a group of friends or a family trip. The Crystal Hotel was inexpensive and the location was great with the beach at a walking distance and many great places to eat. There are so many things to do. From private beach resort to the wadi ram desert and let's... More

This place has not been updated since 1930, IMHO! It is dirty and the food was awful. I was here with a group and would not return or recommend. Also, the WiFi only worked in the nasty lobby and the staff(all male) was surly at best. The only positive is the location across from the Red Sea waterfront.

This hotel, officially 3 stars, is located in the very busy market section of Aqaba. It is across the public beach and promenade and a few minutes walk to the hotel area (where most of the hotels, tourist shops and restaurants are). The lobby is very nice and impressive. The rooms are OK in size, but the furniture is somewhat... More

Cheap hotel and I guess you get what you pay for. We were part of a cycling group so understand they need to get budget hotels. Room was ok and quite spacious. Wifi not available in the rooms. Breakfast very basic. Served the purpose so not the best

Small budget hotel. Chairs and sofas at the lobby are worn, and sticky, and dirty. The locks on the doors and some furniture needs renovation. Bulbs in the lamps woud be great to have. Central air conditioning is good, but the ventilation is not - if someone in the room next door is smoking, he smokes right into your room.... More

We were first reserved and come to ahla thal hotel, which is very bad place to stay, so we have found crystal offline. This hotel is not very bad, pretty clean, but not ideal, has some problems with hot water and huge troubles with food on the breakfast. Don't even try this food, the worst food, we've eaten in the...

If you are looking for a hotel with a good location at a good price, then choose this one. You can have a stroll in Aqaba 's market (and get the chance to buy real coral jewellery- beautifully designed and typical from there) or walk a short distance to get to the sea (where you can take a glass bottomed-boat).

This hotel was booked for us as part of a packaged trip to Jerusalem and Petra. The hotel was basic, but comfortable and clean. It is in a great location, I would recommend to anyone on a budget tour. Aqaba seems excellent, wish we had more time to look around

This hotel looks suspect on first sight with its dark and somewhat grim lobby. However things pick up when you get to the rooms which are clean, comfortable, well-equipped and very good value for the money. The location is hard to argue with just a stone's throw from the promenade along the shore. This place could have got 5 stars... More
