Once upon a time, the Torwadah was probably quite a swish hotel with a lift and central heating. Neither of these now work, the furniture is a little tired and the hot water temperamental. Having said all this, do not dismiss this little gem of a hotel...
Centrally located and close to the balad/downtown of Amman, the Torwadah is handy for the amphitheatre, citadel, shops and eateries. The owner and his son are extremely helpful, despite limited English. I booked an airport transfer which worked seamlessly, was hassle free and definitely worthwhile if you're arriving in the evening. The driver was waiting for me in the arrivals hall with a clearly printed sign and took me straight to the hotel.
My room had tired furniture, though was clean and comfortable. The hotel has no heating, so in February it was very cold. Extra blankets kept me warm in bed, but lack of heating left the room cold. There was hot water most of the time and my room was very quiet.
In summary, I would stay again without hesitation in warmer months, but in winter I think I'd fork out a bit more for somewhere with heating.
