It was really a pleasure to stay here. I had a nice, spacious room with a fan for 20 JD which was very reasonable. I opted for the 7 JD hotel dinner every night, prepared by their Egyptian chef, and the multicourse meal was very good (eating out in this prohibitively expensive tourist town will drain your wallet). There was also plenty of food for breakfast which is available as early as 6:00 AM. Since the hotel is practically at the entrance to Petra, I was able to enter the complex around 6:30 and was the only one walking down the siq. How many people can enjoy such privileged solitude? And I owe it to the location of the hotel.
The owner Belal--as I discovered--is liked and respected everywhere in town. He's known for his professionalism, as well as for his generous and caring nature. Thanks to him, there is a special feeling of well-being which I've not experienced in other hotels. I felt welcome and looked after. Belal arranged a tour for me at Wadi Rum--I spent a day and night there with Abu Ali and his son. There were no other tourists and I was able to savor the amazing beauty of the desert by myself. Let Belal arrange this tour for you. Don't miss out on Wadi Rum--it is an unforgettable experience.
Last but not least, the receptionist--Keltoum--at the hotel was an absolute delight, friendly, engaging, and hospitable. She made a real difference with her charm!
