Booked a rubbish hotel and moved to this one, This hotel is in a great spot a short walk to all. There is a pool and 2 bars roof top and foyer bar. I stayed on the 6th floor refurbish rooms with a balcony and sea view. Looks like they may start building in front of hotel soon! The breakfast is OK but its clean and friendly helpful staff.

Room Tip: Stay in refurbish room

If you are looking for a hotel for your beach vacation in Aqaba - it's the hotel next to this one. Doubletree by Hilton costs about 100€ more per person for one week and there are many reasons to choose the more expensive hotel this time.

1. If you want to go to the private beach (public beaches are full of muslims, so you should go there if you want to take off any clothes), you need to pay about 11€ / day / person. If you are there for one week and want to go every day to the beach.. well you can do the math yourself. You pay a lot just to get to the beach. For customers of the Doubletree by Hilton Hotel the transport & entry to the same private beach is free.

2. The breakfast was everyday the same. The quality was poor. My girlfriend didn't eat anything because there were no fruits, not much to put on the bread and the bread was of weird/bad quality too. Many times the whole bread lie there naked and to get a peace of it you had to touch the bread with your hands to be able to cut a peace of it. I didn't, but I guess other people did and I don't want to eat bread in Aqaba that someone except the kitchen personal has touched with its fingers. We heard that at the Doubletree Hotel there were fruits at breakfast and some kitchen guy who made you omelets with the ingredients that you choose =)

3. The swimming pool is inside an inner yard. The sun began to shine on the swimming pool at maybe 2 pm and on 6 pm the pool closed already. So it was a little bit useless and the water was cold (maybe it's cold everywhere? Don't know)

4. No more reasons and I don't think any further are needed. If you are going on a beach vacations and there's a room available at Doubletree by Hilton - take that one instead. If you are just 1 night or don't want to go to the beach or swimming pool you may as well choose this hotel.

We had a very nice 1 week vacation in Aqaba even though we didn't happen to choose the best possible hotel. There was no way to know in advance. But if you are reading this, remember to check out if another hotels suit your needs better.

And one more notice. The taxi drivers in Aqaba cheat with the prices, big time. Even the taxi-meters cheat. Don't pay more than 10JD (about 11€) for any distance covered. Not to the airport, not the israeli border, not the privat beach.. The drivers are likely to ask 20 or 30 JD for short distances. Don't pay them more than 10JD. The propper price might be 5JD, don't know excactly.. but it's definitely never over 10JD.

10 JD fee to the private beach and cheating taxi drivers where the only bad things in Aqaba. Otherwise lovely town to visite :)

Stayed there as part of Petra & Aqaba package offered by Israeli tour company.

The location right at the down town of Aqaba was great for an overnight stay.

Front office staff very polite, breakfast was good & opening time of the dinning room are comfortable

Room was quite big overlooking Aqaba bay

Room Tip: Great location, ideal hotel for overnight before travelling to Petra
