The hotel is a short stroll to the site entrance - handy if you want to make the dawn visit. The rooms are spacious but the bathroom very tiny and only closed to the rest of the room by a sort of iron curtain -not much privacy. The rooms are also strangely designed which in essence means you dont have many windows and sunlight (you need to go on the balcony). However it was clean and the beds are comfy. The hotel also has a nice 10 JD evening buffet - good when you've hiked all day! Staff was moderately welcoming and helpful, but then people are not as nice in Petra as they are everywhere else in Jordan.
In short : not a fall in love with hotel, but does the trick in touristy Petra.
