The hotel was not full so I was upgraded to a better room with a fantastic view of the valley! Perfect for me as I was sick the first day so I was able to stay in my room and look out while I was resting in bed. But the top floor terrace has the same or even better view.... More

It is in the middle of nowhere, no restaurants or cafes nearby, in fact there is nothing nearby. There is nothing to do in the evening. Although they have a terrace, it is basically 10 chairs in a row, with a window behind them and a view of the houses below. It is very badly kept, there are holes in... More

Jane S, Owner at Rocky Mountain Hotel, responded to this review

The hotel is in a residential area with a coffee shop next door and one of the best supermarkets in town just across the road. The centre of town is just a 10 min walk down hill or a minute away by car - so plenty of cafes just a few minutes away by car. We also bring in takeaways... More

There are great views from the balcony where breakfast is (buffet style) and also from the rooms. Nice sunsets. Friendly staff. The hotel is located 25 min to 30 minutes from the entrance to Petra by foot. Shuttle service is available but only at 7:30 am and 8:30 am (for coming back at 4 pm and 5 pm). A small... More

We were traveling with a young family and originally booked at the Seven Wonders Bedouin Camp. After realizing that probably wasn't the best situation for us (although great for people in other situations, for sure) we decided to stay at the Rocky Mountain Hotel since it was under common ownership. They made the transition from camp to hotel room seamless,... More

Though we arrived early we were well looked after by Mohhamad showing us to the charming restaurant with excellent view where we meet Jane the owner who gave us some excellent advice and tips on how to best explore Petra as a family with small children. The room was an excellent size and very clean, the staff were very helpful... More

The driver booked by Rocky Mountain to pick us up at Amman airport was punctual, friendly and informative. The hotel check in was smooth, our box lunches were ready, so we could start off for Petra right away, with useful tips provided by helpful Hussain. Dinner was a buffet, simple but decent.

As well they offer a free shuttle to/from Petra Visitor Center and help you to book a bus / driver / Wadi Rum tour. The balcony offers a stunning view with amazing sunsets. Dinner is nice as well.

Had a great stay here. The staff are exceptionally friendly and accommodating with tips on seeing Petra. The view from the top floor is spectacular in the day and night; it also has a nice vibe to hang out in. Had dinner there one night and it was tasty. Breakfast was good and the 4JD lunch is very good value.... More

We stayed in this hotel for 2 nights following our tour agent recommendation about this hotel. It was excellent experience. Very clean and tidy hotel and helpful team members, the breakfast in the hotel is something you can’t just miss in the morning before you head to start a long day tour of the Petra. Highly recommended hotel
