The location is great at the entrance to Petra. However, the rooms are very small and the air con very noisy. Flies were a nuisance even in the dining areas. The food was just ok. Service at the bar was very slow.

Great location at average hotel. There are better ones a few blocks away. Lots of tourists in and out of this hotel and in and out of Petra. The best part was travelling in mid-January with great weather and no problems with crowds. My sister's room flooded when the shower broke off in her hand...she had many difficulties with the front desk until the manager got involved but it took her 4 hours to get to another room.

We were recently stayed for 2 nights half board at the Petra Guest house. On arrival we were handed a welcome drink which was a nice touch then we were checked in quickly and efficiently by the receptionist who gave us a comprehensive explanation about the services we could expect. We were shown to our room which was large, comfortable, clean, had all the usual expected amenities i.e. tea/coffee making facilities, air con, safe etc with views over some stables and start of the decent into Petra. It did have a massive bed which was made up of two beds pushed together and was fine by us as it created more space in the room. There was also electric sockets which were adaptors so we were able to charge our phone up using the UK plug which was really useful. In the restaurant, there was a good selection of hot and cold food (salads, meat, vegetarian and continental varieties) available during mealtimes. We did note there were flies in the dining room which was a bit off putting however the staff were unable to do anything about them and unfortunately, other guests kept leaving the covers off the food so the inevitable happened. Apparently June & July are the worst months for flies we were told. The staff were smart, very friendly, welcoming, helpful and were able to sort out any issues/ requests that we had promptly and to our satisfaction. In the hotels vicinity was an info centre for Petra, the Petra museum and some souvenir shops. Attached to the hotel is the Cave Bar which serves a good selection of food and drinks. We were warmly welcomed by Salah one of the bar staff who was attentive, cheerful and made us feel at home. We thought the hotel could benefit from a swimming pool due to the heat and location and were told that other hotels in the area had pools. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay at the hotel and the location for visiting Petra could not have been better or more convenient. Basically it ticked all the right boxes for us and is a great choice for people wanting to visit Petra.

The property: Located right at the gates of the city of Petra, you can’t stay any closer to this wonder of the world, than the Petra Guest House. Though a few other hotels are not too farther off, this is ‘right there’. It’s next to the visitors center and close to some eating joints, knick-knacks & souvenir shops, etc. The hotel’s main structure is relatively spread out across 2-wings, the main one housing the lobby and the restaurant and the other which only has the rooms. We were placed in the latter and on the top-level (yes it was staggered across 3-4 levels, more like a 3-storied building). It overlooks the main Wadi-Musa town and the views are very nice during the evening/night. The common section of the building houses a restaurant and a small shop selling souvenirs and other travel essentials. They do have a very famous bar (the Cave bar), however, we, unfortunately, couldn’t experience the drinks or the ambience due to the sheer paucity of time and also part;y due to the fatigue, but it did seem like a fun place with some good music and interesting drinks. Rooms: The rooms are quite spacious, seemed recently refurbished and clean. The beds were by-far the Widest (& thus probably the largest) we’ve ever seen - you may want to check out the photographs, but they don’t justice to their sheer size. Food & Beverages: The breakfast was very comprehensive & wholesome; you’d have a variety of local Arabic/Jordanian breakfast items, apart from cereals, breads, fresh fruits, condiments such as jams & preserves, juices, yogurts, veggies, nuts, and the works. We, unfortunately, didn’t have any other meals there, nor did we experience their Cave bar. There are some pretty nice local restaurants in the whereabouts - we specifically liked ‘My Mom’s Recipe’. Service & Amenities: Warm and efficient hospitality - typical of Jordan. Overall: All-in-all, it’s good, but slightly expensive - but considering the location, their beds and all other amenities definitely a very good choice to stay when heading to Petra

This hotel boasts the closest proximity to the Petra world heritage site which is true . Unfortunately the hotel features very small rooms and one of our your group had several cockroaches in her bathroom. This is not uncommon in the Middle East and I think the fact that we were on the ground floor added to the problem. On the plus side the staff were friendly and the dining room was lovely. Please be aware that Jordan is very expensive ( 2 beers in an average cafe were $26 US dollars ) and admission to Petra is $75 Jordanian dollars or $150 Canadian .
