This is a budget hotel, in the heart of downtown Amman. If you are expecting luxury, this is not for you. If you want clean, basic accommodation, with air conditioning, refrigerator and shower facilities - and excellent value for money - then this property is a winner! The staff were all very kind and helpful. Breakfast was adequate, and I was completely satisfied with my stay.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a street-facing window.

I have stayed in Arab tower hotel several times over the last couple of years and most recently for a long period time. It is a very good hotel, it is well managed, all the staff are friendly and helpful and do whatever they can to accommodate your needs and if you do encounter any problems they are dealt with promptly. The rooms are clean, big and well-furnished and most of them have been recently renovated making them even more comfortable. There is an efficient heating system in winter and air conditioning in summer. The free internet only works in the rooftop restaurant but is fast and reliable. The breakfast served in the roof top restaurant is very good and includes a freshly cooked omelet, hummus, salad, as well as bread jam and cheese and good coffee (ie: not instant).
Over the last few years I have stayed in many of the hotels in downtown Amman, and while some of them are good, Arab Tower is better and cheaper,- it is excellent value for money. Also I have found that on each visit some little improvements have been made to make the guests’ stay more comfortable.

This place was great place to stay if your looking for something on the cheaper side in Amman. With breakfast included (omelette, pita, hummus, meat, tomato, jams and toast - The coffee has cardamom ground in with the beans if you thought it tasted weird) it was close enough to everything was within reasonable walking distance. We ate at Jerusalem Cafe where I ate some of the best food of my life. Anything you need, the guy at the reception will make happen. We did a tour to the dead sea with the included taxi down to Wadi Rum and was cheaper because we had more people in the car with us. The costs of such things are based on how many people go and are not based on a fixed price. The tour itself was quite rushed as we had a lot to fit in and the driver will try to do as little as possible. Before you leave make sure you make it clear with the receptionist what you want to see otherwise the driver will try to tell you otherwise if your not sure. It might depend on the driver. We went to the public area of the dead sea which was pleasent but we didn't get to see the crystallised salts there. You may need to ask to stop somewhere else. Our beds were Comfy and were kept clean everyday. Wifi is only available in common room downstairs.

Room Tip: Try to get the room that is on the first floor as you can get wifi

This is a pristine, comfortable hotel, with excellent, friendly service in English. The location is excellent if you are wanting to be in the thick of the action - but it could be too noisy and busy if you want relaxation. It was perfect for us as students. The breakfast is served on the roof, with great views, and is fairly limited, but tasty. I enjoyed the well-stocked fridge. Such good value!

Having now stayed at two hotels in downtown Amman, I have come to expect basic but adequate accommodation at a bargain price, and the Arab Tower is perhaps the best, and certainly one of the cheapest. Like most places in downtown Amman, it wouldn't win any awards for style and elegance, but it does all the basic things, and well at that.

We were given a suite of two rooms, each of which had what passes in the area for a bathroom. This comprised a sink and toilet, and a shower which soaked the entire room, and - if it wasn't blocked - drained through a hole in the floor. A culture shock for some perhaps, but it does what it says on the can. The beds were comfortable, the rooms were clean, and our room had a panoramic view of downtown - although not all rooms are so blessed. Other things in its favour are a lift (although this doesn't reach the top floor), free WiFi in the reception area (although the service was patchy and intermittent, which certainly wasn't the hotel's fault), and a decent breakfast in the roof restaurant. Hotel staff in Jordan aren't noted for a particularly friendly welcome, but we had no problems in this case.

Although the hotel has a lift from reception, this is only accessible up a steep slope to the entrance, then some steps, so it isn't ideal for disabled visitors. Also be aware that - like in all hotels in downtown Amman - you are likely to be awakened at the crack or dawn by amplified calls to prayer from the nearby mosques, and that traffic noise can be quite intrusive, as the hotel is next to one of the main thoroughfares.

All in all, you get what you pay for, and for possibly the cheapest hotel in Amman, this hotel represents superb value for money. If you want something luxurious, look elsewhere, but be prepared to pay much more. Note that they do not accept credit cards.

Room Tip: Avoid the top floor as the lift doesn't reach there.

Thank you for your detailed review about our Hotel. We are glad to read that you enjoyed your stay.
Would like to clarify that the lift does reach to all rooms, But it only doesn't reach the last floor which is the rooftop, The lift will take you to all rooms. Yes as all bathrooms you need a hole to drain the water, If it is isn't blocked the whole room wouldn't drain.
Again, thank you for your feedback and we look forward to welcoming you back soon.
