Very good location walking distance to Petra. Rooms very basic. For two people, only one small and one large towel in the bathroom. Plugs in the room destroyed, was afraid to plug my charge in it. Breakfast very poor, no choices at all. Although so many tables and chairs, but no one for breakfast. After check out, they let us... More

Such a great stay. After the hours of walking in Petra, I needed a clean comfy place to rest, and candles hotel was just that! The staff were all so friendly and helpful and went over and beyond to make me feel welcomed. :)

The hotel is very comfy and affordable for college students, me and friends had a great time there and everyone was helpful. We enjoyed the view at night from the tares, and they also offered free deserts dessert because of a religious holiday. Wifi was good, the staff are friendly and the rooms are clean. We really liked how the... More

The decoration of the hotel is not modern but the hotel is very clean with an excellent location (about 100 meters from the entrance of Petra). The owner and the staff are very welcoming and available.

The hotel was good for the money and a very short walk to the entrance to Petra. Our biggest complaint was there was virtually no water pressure in the shower and no hot water. There weren't many guests staying the night we were there so instead of the buffet they cooked us breakfast in the morning.

I stayed here on my last solo travel to Petra. Its a basic hotel that is clean, has friendly staff (you are served with cold juice as you arrive) and basic breakfast. The rate is comparable to other hotels in the area. If proximity to Petra entrance is a big plus for you this is the place! However many hotels... More

Candles Hotel now has a special place in my heart. The owner Abdullah, along with his employees make you feel like you are part of a family. They are incredibly professional, ready to answer any questions or concerns. Always smiling, making sure your stay is absolutely wonderful.

The hotel is close to Petra, the staff help- and cheerful, however, the hotel is in awful condition. It looks DDR-chique from 1975, and nothing is done since then. Shower, mirror, sink, and light switches, lamps: they were all damaged or out of function. The breakfast is terrible: old bread, cold coffee. In the hostel in Amman, the breakfast was... More
