I ended up here as a taxi driver recommendation (not something I normally give in to, but I was very tired), but remarkably it turned out to be a much better choice than the guidebook-recommended option I had intended to take.
This hotel is clean and no-fuss, with a decent breakfast. Fair value in this rather expensive country. It is excellently situated just a couple of minutes' walk from the entrance to the Petra archaeological area, and that is its trump card: the guidebooks seem to suggest it might be better to stay further up the Wadi Musa, nearer the centre of the modern town, rather than close to the achaeological site.
For anyone who really wants to maximise their time in the ancient site, the guidebooks' advice is poor. There are plenty of restauarants, mini-markets, change places, and internet connections in the immediate couple of hundred yards before the start of the ancient site, so there is absolutely no reason not to stay in this part of town in preference to the upper Wadi Musa.
