I used this hotel with a low budget group. I have been visiting Jordan for 18 months with work for periods of up to 6 weeks.
Poor quality. Free inspection hatches provided in rooms for views into the cavities of the hotel, which allow free run for the copious insects.
Poor security. Hotels are not known for great security, but here it is laughable.
Poor safety. Low rails on interior balconies, faulty lift, fire extinguishers wrapped in cling-film, to name just some issues.
The Alcazar was a base for us to operate from and we weren't on holiday. As such it sufficed. But for people traveling and expecting to enjoy themselves on holiday this is not the place to book. I saw a group of German/Austrians arrive in the poshest tour bus I have seen in Jordan, 15 minutes later they were very clearly in shock at the state of the hotel.
After only 1 day, members of my group had not surprisingly re-named the hotel Alcatraz.
In future I will flex my budget for groups to use the Days Inn.
