Al Qidra Hotel
Ranked #7 of 40 Hotels in Aqaba
Reviewed August 2, 2014

Very practical downtown location. Free parking in front. Big rooms. Big fridge. Reasonable price, Everything working, including wi-fi and efficient AC. A very decent free breakfast. But most importantly, 5-star service, with every request fulfilled within minutes, and incredibly warm, personal approach. Highly recommended.
A word of warning - it is not a quiet location but the same can be said about nearby chain hotels, twice as expensive

Room Tip: A 2-bedroom suite was an excellent value for our group of 4.

Very well located hotel with nice rooms for a good price and extremely friendly staff. Abdullah made our stay pleasant and unforgettable. He helped us to arrange most of the trips, shared local knowledge and organized a huge birthday cake for my husband. We did not get such a treat even on our honeymoon.

Maybe the shower wasn't the best (quite low pressure), but for having a enjoyable time it was not a problem.

I don't understand the high reviews for this hotel. It seems mediocre at best. It does have a nice location in the middle of all the restaurants, but that also makes it noisy. Check-in was easy and quick and the front desk staff helpful. There are 4 floors and a lift. The room is average for the Middle East. Dirty and put together poorly. I am not marking off for this because it is the way all hotels in the Arab world excluding resorts. The toilet and shower are my main complaints. The toilets do not flush and the shower just dribbles water(We tried 2 rooms and both were terrible). 6 days we stayed and couldn't get washed after walking around in the humid heat. It was extremely uncomfortable. The only saving graces are the bed and air conditioning. The bed is incredibly comfortable and the air conditioning ice cold. The free WiFi is terrible. Extremely slow when it worked. Breakfast is hardly worth mentioning. It is the exact same everyday and not good. Just bread, butter, jelly, and hard boiled eggs. The only 'juice' is the sugary Arab orange drink. The price is good for this hotel, but I think there are better options.

We were in this hotel for only 1 night. It's a nice hotel, but most important, very nice people. They want to help you and make your stay comfortable. We got a nice tour through Aqaba! The room is simple, but good with a lot of space. Breakfast is good, there is everything you need or want. A good hotel for a good price!

Room Tip: We had a room with a small kitchen. A lot of space!

Hotel is situated in the middle of nightlife in Aqaba, so can get noisy late in the evening. Very spatious family room (2 separate rooms + big corridor with sofa), nice local breakfast-buffet, kind service. If you want swimming pool, you can go to berenice beach for 7,5 jod per person
