“Not very nice but close to Petra entrance”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 11, 2010

This was probably a nice hotel... 30 years ago. Now it is a bit run down, the appliances were either broken or working poorly. Breakfast was less-than -average. The rates were quite high (90 JD for a triple room!!) but I guess we paid for the location right near the entrance to Petra.

Dear Linda Carolina,

I hope you are well. I am sorry to hear you did't like Candles Hotel in 2010. I would like to invite you to come to Candles Hotel and see our new look. We have renovated the hotel since your last visit. The time of your last visit was during peak season so you were given peak season rates. Please we would like to be given the opportunity to change your view about us. We hope to see you again in Petra.

All the best,
Abdallah
