“A nice hotel for Amman”
Reviewed June 12, 2013

I have spent 2 nights in Amman last week and booked at the Misk Hotel. It was overall a good experience for our needs. Rooms are clean, bathroom is clean, the size is correct. People from the hotel are true professionnal, nice and smiling

My credit card was not working and I have been able to pay in EUR on my check-out. The room service is fast and affordable, the food is good.

Wi-Fi access is free of charge, and fast

Breakfast could be improved

Overall if you're staying in Amman for a night or two and looking for a convenient and affordable hotel, this is the one ;.)

Loved the fantastic rooms. Everything was clean. The breakfast needed more varieties of fruit. My only complaint was the were unable to give me change at the front desk. The hotel is nicely renovated, with very clean common areas. I ordered room service. Affordable, huge portions, beautiful presentation.

We stayed at Misk Hotel Amman in Jordan for one month and it was really amazing! We felt at home among our beloved family! The staff were too friendly, helpful and caring, they were really outstanding! We would like to thank them for their dedicated work and for their excellent service and care, and especially the Hotel Assistant Manager Mr. Abdulla Saleh who was so friendly, welcoming and warm and also the Hotel Manager Mr. Georges Dababneh for his kindness, wishing Hotel Misk continued success and we hope you keep working on improving the quality of the hotel services.
You really deserve a huge thank you, with the best of luck!

Excellent hotel for the price. Very good location. Quiet and easy to walk to stores and restaurants and easy to catch a cab. Nice breakfast and very helpful staff. It is close to highway so you don't have to drive through a lot of traffic to get to the airport. The rooms are small but well designed to make the most out of the space. The TV have several English speaking channels so you can lie in bed and watch a movie if you want.

For a 3 stars hotel, Misk is more than perfect. In fact you feel like in at least a 4 stars hotel thanks to the extended support of the staff who are always ready to help and even give valuable suggestions about your trip in Amman. They are glad to arrange transportation.
The room was clean and very comfortable. Breakfast was nice, although it would be nicer with more variety and options.
You get WIFI in the room. Internet speed is very good.
Having Safeway, a 24 hrs hypermarket, just around the corner is a BIG plus especially if you're staying more than a couple of nights.

We found the Hotel Misk through TripAdvisor, and the reviews came through for us again!
The Misk is a smallish hotel located in a business district. The building looks newly rennovated. Rooms are cozy with simple decor, nice bathrooms, and a mini-bar, and the rates are very competitive with other hotel offerings outside of the "hostel" sector.

The staff were all absolutely wonderful, very kind and helpful with everything from hailing a cab, writing down destinations for us (reccomended since taxi drivers may not understand English or be familiar with tourist spots), and bringing up ice. I also highly reccomend the drivers that work with the hotel for visiting areas outside of Amman. Firaz, our driver, took us to and from the airport, Petra, the Dead Sea and Madaba, for a very reasonable price and was flexible with scheduling, as well as good company on the road. (He also speaks Spanish, which was a plus for us.)
(Note: The asked us to please share our experience on tripadvisor, and often asked questions about restaurants, tours, etc. but I took this as they are trying to promote their new hotel and improve services for tourists.)

We didn´t eat in the hotel´s restaurant for meals other than breakfast. The breakfast buffet was not very lavish, but had basics for a quick breakfast before heading out to see the sights, with a mix of arabic and western offerings.

As other reviewers have pointed out, there is not a lot in terms of restaurants or shops in the immediate vicinity (2 blocks) of the hotel. However, there is a large grocery store about 4 blocks away and about half a mile away a long street with quite a few restaurants and stores (local, not very tourist oriented). We felt very safe walking around the hotel and in Amman in general.
It is important to note that in Jordan cabs are plentiful and inexpensive. We went from one end of Amman to the other on about 3-4 dollars, with minimal haggling (generally accepting somewhat inflated rates, because, hey, for $3 we can help a cabbie out.)
The guys at the front desk will give you business cards with a map and the address of the hotel, I reccommend taking one and keeping it with you to show to cab drivers. It helped us a great deal and no one had any problems getting us back to the hotel.

I highly reccommend the Misk for tourists and business travelers. All in all, we loved our trip to Jordan and were very impressed with the different sights and the kindness we were shown.

Finallly, a quick un-hotel related tip: If you are interested in purchasing Dead Sea products (soap, mud masks, etc.), visit a Spinneys supermarket in Amman, rather than the souvenir shops. We found greater selection, better quality and lower prices there.

We were a group of four. Misk Hotel was an oasis after a long trip from home.
We always looked forward to return to the hotel, for a short break/rest, between meetings.
The staff were very helpful in accommodating our special needs of booking new flight reservation and special meals. We were well received..
