I stayed one night in this hotel, part of an organised round trip in Jordan.
For our stay, it was a very good hotel.
The room was huge and clean, and the bathroom was also very big.
I liked the fact that before the bathroom there was a small corridor with big shelf to put stuff, with a door this could be closed from the bedroom. (very convenient as I got up earlier than my room mate and that way I did not have to disturb her that much).
At the front desk, the staff was very friendly.
Breakfast is served at the first floor. It was good (not excellent but just "good"), and the room where it is served is really nice and light, and big;
Only negative points: no pool in hot Aqaba but that you know upfront of course. I did not miss it but can imagine if you stay longer you do miss it.
And the staff at the front desk is not so good in english although they do try.
Aqaba is a lovely place, very much "living" at night with restaurants and terraces. The hotel is in the middle of all this. You can walk to the Aqaba fort (about 20 minutes, alas it was closed :-( ) and the ayla ruins. Also the harbour is very close.
On a Friday, we enjoyed walking along the public beach, for "people watching", a nice experience. and with a boat we went on a 4h snorkling trip. I love this town and easily could have stayed a day or 2 days longer.
