The Dana Guesthouse is located in the historic village of Dana, far from noise and traffic, a very good location if you want to rest or discover Al Ghweir. New rooms are being prepared and all of them have a private balcony with an amazing view. The old part is like a guesthouse with bathroom in the corridor and 2... More

Worth a stay for the views alone. The accommodation is basic (twin beds and shared bathrooms), but the views of the valley from the bedroom balconies more than make up for this. The supper, buffet-style Jordanian food, was very good, and the open fire was welcoming. It was fairly quiet when we stayed there (only one other couple) so don't... More

The shared bathrooms were quite dirty by the morning and the doors banged shut the entire night with loud metal sounds. The room was like a concrete jail cell with a tiny hard bed. No wifi at all. The communal dinner was our least favorite on the trip to Jordan. This place is truly roughing it in terms of hotels,... More

I strongly recomment this place! the rooms are simple (however heated! Which is quite appreciated in November) but the view is really oustanding from the balcony! We were amazed by the quality (and quantity) of the food! And the staff was just so kind and warmfully welcoming us! Thanks for that chat around the cheminee fire :)

This is simple accommodation, but done very well with nature at its heart. Our room with THAT view was comfortable and homely, and the buffet dinners and lunches were delicious. Even if you don't go exploring a lot of the wildlife will come to you, including the wonderful vultures flying overhead. Wish we had stayed longer, and would visit again... More

This is a wonderful guesthouse with awesome staff. They explain you everything you want to know about the area and nature. Actually it's a restoration project funded by USAID and Canada Fund to bring back people in this beautiful area.

We really loved it here; and for more than just the views. Whilst it is not a multi-star hotel, has no air conditioning and has shared bathrooms, it is still one of the two places (alongside Feynan Ecolodge) we will remember most fondly from our time in Jordan. This has hotel has something that no amount of modern comforts could... More

Don't believe the 4 stars, they probably stand for stars, hospitality, simplicity and authenticity. But a very nice place to stop, good location and perfect start for a great hike in Dana reserve. The hotel will provide a great local guide ( a must) and you will have a perfect day and even a hot shower when you get back.... More

Excellent and attentive service by the staff. Clean rooms. Sheets are bit thin, but the beds are comfortable and tidy. I got lucky and had the room with on-suite bathroom, but heard that the shared facilities are fine. Very nice breakfast included. Tasty dinner too. Each room has a private balcony. Overall, very nice experience.

On the face of it this is a hard sell: it's relatively expensive - about £80 for two single beds in a fairly basic bare room. However, the money goes towards the conservation and regeneration of Dana I believe, and there is a certain charm to the place which makes up for its austerity. The staff are very friendly, the...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Perched on the edge of the precipitous cliffs of Wadi Dana since 1995, this beautifully styled building merges elements of village vernacular architecture with more modern elements, creating a structure with a definable Arabic character, unlike any other in Jordan, offering breath-taking views of the reserve. It consists of only 9 comfortable rooms, but with a few extra beds, it can be made to house up to 23 people. Considering that the Guesthouse was originally meant to house researchers, all the rooms share external toilets & showers, except for one suite, which has a private bathroom, adding character and authenticity to the entire experience. Most rooms also come with private terraces that offer spectacular views of the surrounding wadi and mountains. The Guesthouse is also equipped with facilities for courses and conferences, making a perfect location for retreats and workshops. The Guesthouse is open all year round. ... more   less
