While this hotel might not be for older people because of the two restaurants/pubs one downstairs and one upstairs playing somewhat loud music until 12 on weekends, it's still a great choice. We were a group of friends staying in different rooms and they were all good.

If you are expecting a fancy hotel with amazing facilities you might want to consider some other 5 star hotel (and pay for it), but if you want a clean place to stay in on a budget in one of the best locations in Amman, this hotel is the best out there.

The benefits of this hotel are so many:
1-The staff is so friendly and helpful. We formed a personal relationship with them and they helped us with whatever we asked, whether it was to arrange a driver to Wadi Rum or Laundry, or to choose a restaurant for lunch, they did their best to help us. Especially the mid 30s guy at the reception. We owe them this review.

2- The location is at the First Circle in Amman, a hip and restored area of the old Amman, so close to the "old and sketchy" downtown yet is set in a better and safer location surrounded by the endless restaurants, pubs and cafe in the "Rainbow Street" down the hotel where many of the Ammani Youth choose to hang out and where Jara street market opens several months a year on every Friday.

3- The hotel has a great French Restaurant downstairs "Bistro One", an irish pub with a pool table "Amigo" and on the roof one of the nicer shisha cafes/pubs where you can try flavored shisha "Prego".

4- All the rooms are good sized and clean, with basic furnishing and a small kitchen corner! The bathrooms are apparently new and clean. Some rooms get more sunlight than others but they were fine.

5- It is a good value for what you are getting! You can even negotiate a better rate if you are in a group or staying for an extended period of time.

6- Free wireless internet and parking.

So, in the end... If all you want is a good and central place to stay where it's clean and safe this is the hotel for you. This is an hidden gem in Amman.

We loved it, and everybody said they'd stay here again whenever they are back in Amman.

very nice hotel, moderated price and a very good service,... the peop;e are so friendly and helpfull in the, it is a hotel wich is runned by a familly the same style of boutique hotels, very very nice a nd kind people.

rooms are soo clean, and it is placed in the heart of amman city in the Jabal Amman neigberhood, where stand the Rainbaw street about 100 meters from the hotel and the city center about 10 minuts walking, so if you want to go out to eat, drink or even just walk in a very nice neigberhood and very animated, i recommande you to stay in Granada hotel in Amman

We stayed at this hotel twice during a group tour to Jordan in two different rooms. Firstly the rooms are poor, in both rooms there was a power outlet at the top of the bed, so be careful where you put your arms in the night. In the first room the bathroom light didn't work at all (even after changing the bulb) and there was no hot water, the pillows were like concrete blocks. The bedding appeared to be fairly clean but the carpet was a bit sticky (maybe they spilt some paint?). In the second room the only things that didn't work were the hot water and the phone, the bathroom had a delicate aroma of drains, and the bedsheets had some interesting stains (not sure how often they change them if at all).

As part of our tour we slept in the desert under the stars at a bedouin camp, this had more charm, facilities and was cleaner than the Granada Hotel.

We stayed at the Granada Hotel for two nights as part of an organised Gecko's tour in the middle east. The hotel was very well located in the first circle area, and we also went out to Rainbow Street's restaurants and cafes - very pleasant and only a short walk away. The hotel is close to shops, restaurants and ATMs.

The hotel itself is quite basic but we did have aircon and satellite tv and a mini fridge in our room.

Our room smelled a bit of smoke and there was an empty cigarette packed in the trash bin so they must have missed the bin when they cleaned up.

Our bathroom also flooded when we took a shower - the drain on the floor could not clear the water quickly enough and within about 10 minutes the whole bathroom floor is wet and flooded and it takes very long to drain.

This hotel is a good choice for budget conscious tourists as long as they know that the hotel is very basic with no frills. The breakfast was also quite sparse, with some bread, jams and hard boiled eggs and instant coffee / tea and madeira cake. There is a free internet terminal in the lobby for use of guests.

A recommendation as to where to eat when staying here - in Rainbow street there is a restaurant called "Fitatri / Fatatri" where we had the most beautiful fateer - middle eastern pizza style food with layers of filo pastry instead of traditional pizza dough. Try the nutella fateer for dessert with delicious grated pistachio nuts on top!

I stayed at this hotel 3 different times during a two week your in Jordan. Each time I stayed the rooms were completely different and ranged from poor to o.k. Some rooms were large and some were very small. The biggest complaint I had was that some of the doors seemed to have been kicked in and on the first night my door did not close very securely and the lock and closure part was all banged up and bent. Also I had a bathroom door that had definately been kicked in and had no ability to close. I got a large splinter from the broken wood. I also had one almost nice room, large and bright but the towel was dirty and the shower had no closure so water ran everywhere.
The service also ran from terrible to very good depending on the person behind the counter. The one pro was the location, as it was near the first circle and it was easy to walk around.
All in all I would not recommend this hotel.
