Important Note: Owner's have changed since the last Lonely planet guide review. They reformed the hotel and make great improvment.
it was our first stop on arrival in March 2012. We planned to stay only 2 nights in the hotel and finally stayed 4 nights as we felt like at home and met really great people! The hotel is ideally situated in the historic centre, close to the St George's Church, in a shopping street. We parked our rented car every day just in front of the hotel. The room was simply decorated but clean and quiet with hot shower, television and heater. The home cooked jordanian meals offered in the cosy restaurant are delicious and good budget. But the most important was the welcoming of all the team, they have been most than friendly with us, always helping in any situation, advising about interesting places and local shops (2 of them are profesional guides), always good mood and open mind, interesting stories and topics, a lot of jokes and fun!! they always took care of us and our belongings. Customers were all ages and nationalities, also local people. It was really hard to leave them and we finally returned 3 days more just before leaving Jordan. We really had a great time in Queen Ayola!
Even if you are not staying in this hotel, don't hesitate to stop there just for a coffee or meal break as you will enjoy for sure!

We parked our rental every day directly in front for free. Located near all popular restaurants and St. George's Church with the famous mosaic of the holy land. The room had two single beds pushed together for a married couple. My wife used her own sheet instead of their blanket and quilt. Room was clean with an early 1900's look and smell. The 4am mosque chants took a night to get used to, but not too bad. Food was good, although we didn't have the buffet since we're vegetarian. Shower water was fine and hot not a problem. Overall, we're happy we stay with the friendly hosts and saved a few bucks each night.

We stayed here in december 2011. By chance we found it after searching for Madabas cheapest and I believe it is one of them. We intended to stay for one night which tuned into 4 nights finding it difficult to leave largely due to the staff who were amongst the most friendliest and most helpful people we met in our whole year travelling. Dont believe the reviews in the lonely planet as they are old and the owners and staff have changed.

For a budget hotel you cannot ask too much. The bathrooms are clean, the water is warm, towels and soap provided. There was a heater in the room. The beds are big and comfortable.True, there is a blanket instead of an oversheet on the bed. (but go to a real local hotel and you get only blankets). The streetside is noisy, (don't fall for the balcony deal), better to request a room at the back. This having been said, the owner, Geries, and his team were the most friendly Jordanians we met during our two and a half week trip through the country. The welcome is warm, one feels immediately at home, and Geries went out of his way to accompany us to the shops in our quest for camping gaz.
The friendlyness and hospitality are sincere, and make this a great place to stay on arrival in Jordan.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the backside, where you will not have the traffic noise.

Having stayed both here and in the Mariam Hotel in Madaba, I can honestly say unbiasedly that you should spend an extra 10 dinar and stay in the Mariam. Don't even think twice - you will eat the 10 dinar in breakfast if nothing else! On a recent trip to Jordan we stayed in a wide range of accommodation from completely basic to cut-price luxury (for Aqaba see what online deals there are for the Hilton, we stayed there for approx 40 dinar a night) despite being recommended in Lonely Planet and by a french couple we met there is no way I can recommend this. The owner was friendly but that's about it. Our room was freezing, smelt of smoke, very noisy (although admittedly if you had a room at the back it would probably be better) the bathroom grotty and stained. We paid 30 dinar for a double room because it had a balcony - not worth it. Stay in the Mariam!
