Farah Hotel
Ranked #41 of 148 Hotels in Amman
Reviewed October 29, 2012

We searched hotels in downtown Amman. We saw at least 5 hotels and decided to stay there. Fair price and friendly staff. We stayed in a double room with shared bathroom. The room was clean and the bathroom also except for the second time we stayed there because it was their biggest holiday and I think not all the employees were working. They helped us with the sightseeings, with the tours and the taxis (big problem in Amman). The hotel have their own tours with fair price, to go north and south Jordan including Jerash, Petra and Dead Sea. if you go by yourself it is cheaper but, in Jordan, you are never sure it will work. They have a common area where you can socialize and get to know other people. They do not have kitchen. The hotel is near all the important sites of the city center like Citadel and the Roman Theatre. Wi-fi free. The only downside is that they smoke a lot inside the common areas but then everybody smokes in Jordan inside closed places.

Room Tip: Ask for the floor that is less busy and then the toilete will be yours.

The thing I liked here was the board when there`re several options you can choose from and hire a driver (who is also a giude) who will follow the itinerary written. Probably, it`s a bit more expensive that you organize it by yourself somewhere else, but it`s quite convinient.

As example, it was the sheet of paper like on the picture I attached. I was interested in this tour and wrote my name, the day I`d like to go and room no. on the sheet below. Also smb Mike from US was interested in this tour also for the same date. Price is per car, for this tour it was 100 JD. So, if you`re 4, you pay 25 JD each. As we were two and in the low season, we bargained a littlie discount and paid 40 JD each (80 JD instead of 100 JD total).

So, if you need help on organizing some trips in Jordan, you can stay in this hotel and find out you can do.

P.S. Using computer is 1 JD per hour, I`m not sure about wi-fi. Breakfast is quite good, staff is friendly, cleanless is average

I would rate it more like 7 out of 10. I stayed here for one night in the mixed dormitory and I can't complain much. Although the space of the dormitory is small, it is clean. And so are the halls and the common area - which is great for meeting other travelers. It is a well-maintained hostel. Only downside is at the time I was there, WiFi was down. Otherwise, it would have been great. I wish the staff were a bit more friendly too. Breakfast was pretty good.

I like Farrah Hotel. I stayed there second time and everything was good. Staff is friendly and helpful, rooms are clean and cosy. You can find there everything what you need. The price includes breakfast - simply but tasty. There is free wi fi.
Of course the best thing is localisation - in Amman's downtown. Farrah is the best choice for budget travellers.

I have stayed one night at this hotel when I visited Amman in 2006. Room conditions and general overview of the hotel was rather poor. Though, rooms were spacious, but equipement and beds were very old.

The only good things of this hotel is location and prices.

Basic dorm rooms for 7JD a night including a basic breakfast. The rooms and hostel are nothing special but you can not beat the location. Bathrooms are on the tiny side.

The lobby is very smokey with chain smoking employees and owner.

For the price you really cant complain.

We stay here, luckily, for only 1 night. We think there was only one other guest at the time, so clearly its not a popular hotel at the moment.
The room was very dingy and smelled strongly of smoke, including the towels and bedclothes. We didn't sleep under the 'covers' as they were just a rough wool blanket and a dull colour bottom sheet.
Bathroom was dirty, old and very small. The shower water pressure was very low.
Breakfast was a boiled egg and make your own coffee which we didn't bother with.
We booked the Kings Highway tour down to Petra, the wife and I had to pay for the full JD100 as there were no other guests to take the tour. Generally OK but when we arrived Petra we asked the driver if he could drop us at our hotel near the entry of the site but he refused and dumped us in the middle of a residential area. He said take a taxi, when we stated there weren't any to be seen he said 'lots of taxis'. We saw none and it was lucky a passing local asked if he could drop us over at the hotel in his car.
This is a hostel, and not even a very good one. Location is central but since taxis are cheap you might as well stay further out as there's not much to see anyway in Amman.
