I have stayed at the bellevue during my 2 days business trip to Amman last March 2012. I looked at the hotel website and it looked 5 starts hotel. I arrived there at 11.am, to find out that there are no rooms and i have to stay at the lobby till 2 for a check in!!! i was wondering, such a huge building with no rooms at all, noting that the reception was empty with not much people!!
i stayed for half an hour, then i started losing my patince, when i heard the receptionist taking a phone call and reserving rooms to be taken on the same night (that means they have empty rooms!!) i started complaining, and they claimed that they were about giving me a junior suite, which was not ready!! (buh)
finally i had what they called a junior suite, a spacious entrance with a quite good room. bathroom was very small but fine, and the room was very clean.
the rooms are not that much new (or as if it apears on their website) but not bad at all.
i was waiting for a group of 4 persons, but i did not say that the group was with me. when the group arrived at 12, they did the same things with them. they gave them rooms at 2.30 pm :( also puting 2 girls in a junior suite and 3 men in a senior suite (all in one). i was very furious that i paid 110 JD per room, so i imagine this combined flats are cheaper. they claimed not, also.
I was surprised alos to know that internet is for money. one hour with 7 JD (with is a lot) and whole day with 20 JD. we went to the lobby the 6 of us, showing them that in our reservation it was marked wifi free. then they provided us with a user name and a password right away.
breakfast was not wow. good, normal.
one big problem is the elevators. you have to wait sooooo long for it, and the hotel includes some residentials which cause disturbance to you in the elavtor, fiding people stairing at you!! as a new comer to their building (Home)...
Room service was very good and responsive.
In overall, it was a good hotel. Price was high if you get it through internet or travel agency. However they provide low rates to any Jordanian institution. so make sure you book it through your local partner.
