We just got back from a ten-day stay in Aqaba. The hotel is located in the center of Aqaba. Once it was 4 star but now it`s far from it. The staff is very friendly and the service at any time. Hotel does not have its own beach, as well as almost all the hotels located in the center, so we use the shuttle bus, which is required to book at the front desk ,went to Berenice beach which is about 15 km from the hotel, but it is very beautiful. The rooms have no balcony, has the air-conditioning and modestly furnished but clean. The restaurant is also modestly furnished. Hygiene is not exactly at a high level and food choices. In the vicinity of the hotel have shops, cafes, very good restaurants, so you will not go hungry anyway. And on the beach you have a very good restaurant. All in all, the hotel is average and very cheap but it is ok for us because we were planning that Golden Tulip to be base from which we will visit whole Jordan. Thanks to the local travel agency ABOVE AND BELOW ADVENTURES, owner Moufid Baqain, located directly next to the hotel, who organized following trips for, us our stay in Jordan will forever be in our best memories.The Agency has organized for us two-day trip to Petra ,sleeping at the Petra Palace Hotel, 3 star, located 5 minutes walk from the main entrance. The driver picked up us at 7 in the morning in front of our hotel at 9am we were at the hotel in Petra, left things and started the tour. In the hotel in Petra, we had dinner and breakfast,and since we were sleeping we took the opportunity to go to Petra by night. The next day we visited Petra all day and at 18h in front of our hotel the driver picked up us and about 20h we were in Aqaba at the Golden Tulip. Also through this agency we went on a trip to the desert of Wadi Rum, which lasted 5 hours until sundown. And finally thanks to ABOVE AND BELOW we went on a two-day trip that included canyons,the Dead Sea, Bethany or place of the baptism of Jesus Christ in the river Jordan, Mount Nebo, Madaba, the factory where the products from the Dead Sea are sold, Amman, overnight stay in Amman in beautiful Larsa hotel,dinner at a local famous restaurant Hashim in downtown Amman, shopping, next day panoramic tour of Amman,which included the Roman theather and Citadel, and at the end of well-preserved Roman city of Jerash.The price of the trip were included tickets for all locations, stay in a hotel with breakfast, lunch on the Dead Sea, dinner in local restaurant in Amman,sightseeing Amman and ride in air-conditioned mini bus with a superb driver Said at our service at any time. For those who are planning an active vacation and visit whole Jordan this hotel is ideal because the price is very good, tidy, very friendly staff and Berenice beach was beautiful and we enjoyed it between our trips, and also we liked the center of Aqaba. The hotel is in a great place and everything is available so that you can easily walk to the agency ABOVE AND BELOW and book the above trips at very reasonable price. Finally I would add that on the corner of the hotel is a beatiful cafe where we in the evening drunk the famous lemonade with mint that is the best we`ve tried all over Jordan
