Al Qasr has comfortabe rooms, a great service and an excellent rooftop restaurant - but the prices are definitely on the higher side steak for JD 35...!!!). Well-located for business-travellers - with good WiFi and a wonderful breakfast.

Room Tip: Avoid the top floor - right below the restaurant / night club (unless you don't mind sleeping wi...

We stayed here recently on our first trip to Amman. Easy to walk to supermarket, restaurants, and banks but not near the centre of town. We were told there were no 4 star hotels in the downtown area. A request from a female traveller for help with the safe producted no result; however the same request by a male a few hours later produced a response immediately. Breakfast was good. As it was winter the heating was on permanently; but we were able to open the windows. We were in a standard room so there was no jug to boil water, but we were able to obtain cups of hot water from the bar. WiFi was only available in the hotel lobby. Not sure of the price for this hotel as it was booked as part of a package. Would recommend this hotel to those looking for 4 star hotel.

Room Tip: if you want tea/coffe making facilities choose a suite.

Enjoyed immensely our 2 night stay in this very classy looking hotel a few days before Xmas, so decorated lovely as well!! We had a beautiful, quiet room on the 3rd floor, wonderful food and drinks at the bar, very good breakfast buffet even in the early hours before leaving for a day trip to Petra. The staff were very nice and helpful, the location's also perfect for tourists, nice neighbourhood and a quick cab ride to the old city. We had a really good time eating at the hotel's Oobe restaurant, great fun sitting at the bar and joking around with the really nice staff, and the food was delicious!! Can really recommend staying here!

My family and I stayed for a total of 4 nights in December 2012 as part of our holidays in Jordan. The check-in was efficient but rooms were small although beds were comfortable. Security gave some level of comfort as bags were scanned. Breakfast was adequate but service left much to be desired. Although you meet the same service staff daily they make you go through the pain of identifying daily which rooms you are from, etc. It would have been nice if they remembered the faces as the hotel is fairly 'small'. Similarly a number of front desk personnel were not exactly friendly when we asked for directions to nearby restaurants, etc. There appears to be a lack of positive service culture ... maybe it is branded as a business hotel? Checking out on the last day took time - 15 minutes even though we were the only ones in line. Overall I would say that our experience was average - certainly not 4 star.

We stayed at Al Qasr for 2 nights in December 2012 while touring Jordan and had a reasonably comfortable stay. The hotel lobby area is nice & clean and we had a quick and painfree check in. Our hotel rooms are smallish in size but comfortable. The central heating was way too high for us, we ended up opening a window at night as we were told that the thermostat didnt work when the air con was set to heating. The free wifi offered is definitely an asset.
The breakfast buffet continental spread was average but the arabic spread was excellent and more than made up for it. We ate dinner at the Italian restaurant and the food and service were good and reasonably priced.
Overall we found the service to be good but if I were to revisit Amman as a tourist then I would most likely shop around and look for a better hotel elsewhere. To us it seemed more of a business hotel but avoidable for tourists unless you have reason to be in the area.

This is an excellent four star hotel - the staff can be a little brusque but perhaps that's their manner, but all in all, it's a real find. It's not in the greatest location for downtown, but it's never far from anything and cabs are easy and cheap. The food in house is a little pricey for what it is but it's good stuff. Comfortable rooms, funky design and really good value. Worth it as the 5 stars are really pricey and not worth it.

We visited Jordan back in September, my sister Katie and cousin Sandra absolutely loved it here at the Al Qasr Metropole Hotel. The people in Jordan are absolutely beautiful and always willing to help. The hotel was clean, the service was excellent and I would stay here again over and over. One of the receptionist name Maha was an absolute treasure, always willing to help and greets us with a lovely customer service smile, she was very pleasant to deal with and made us feel welcomed every time we arrived back from a long day of touring. Thank you Maha. Highly recommend this hotel. Ruby Matautia
