“No Towels, Crumbling Plaster And Now No Door Handle!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 28, 2014

We spent one night at the Rest Inn in Amman before travelling onto the Dead Sea. Our apartment had two bedrooms. There was plaster and paint coming off the walls, and there was a strong smell of air freshener which must have been hiding something we couldn't detect. The cleaner knocked on the door to give us a full can of spray without any explanation - fortunately, we never found out what it was masking.

It was generally a clean apartment with a balcony and comfortable enough living room with television. The bathroom had a shower and was clean, BUT THERE WERE NO TOWELS ANYWHERE - the cleaners couldn't even help us! Unfortunately, the door handle also came away from the front door in the morning. A basic Middle-Eastern breakfast is included - coffee, a bag of flat bread, hard-boiled eggs, Foul (a bean porridge) hummus and "Laughing Cow" cheese triangles.

The apartment with two bedrooms cost 100 JD for the night. This place needs some repairs and some towels!

Hard to know where to start with the problems with this hotel.
We booked it based on its rating as a 4 star hotel and as a family of 5 were looking for a place with apartment type accommodation for extra space but with hotel like facilities such as pool and restaurants. All of which show on the websites and sites such as Booking.com where we made reservation.
None of this existed - at best it is a 1 star hotel. Grim and dirty. First 3 bed apartment they showed us was smelly and shabby and second one a bit better but still leaving very poor impression. There were loose wires in corridors and hard to tell if tatty state of hotel was due to renovations taking place or just that it has been left to gradually rot.
Then discovered that the advertised pool is actually run separately from the hotel, charges for entry and only has women only and men only times - no combined times for families like us.
Was final straw really and so for first time in all our years traveling we decided to just pack up and leave - it was that bad.
To be fair to hotel manager he didn't charge us one nights accommodation (we had originally booked 4) for leaving though he could have. Was only bright note of the brief few hours we were there.
Avoid this place if you can!
