We read about this hotel online. The prices were significantly lower than other hotels of that quality and we wondered what it would be like. We were very pleasantly surprised. When we arrived, we were greeted by friendly staff and offered Arabic tea and zatar. That set the tone for our very pleasant stay. We had our little 3 year old granddaughter with us. She was spoiled by the staff with little treats every time they saw her. Once she mentioned that she was thirsty and someone ran and got her a bottle of juice. On my birthday the staff offered me a birthday cake with a rousing rendition of Happy Birthday in Arabic, much to the delight of our granddaughter. We easily walked to the Petra ruins. We left early in the morning and entered the petra park before 7am. It still had a morning coolness and we felt like we owned the park. There were no other tourists. We brought in peanut butter sandwiches and ordered tea at the little shop in front of the treasury for breakfast. It was breathtaking under the morning light. We did our hiking in the morning before it got too hot.
In the evening we walked up to the Petra Moon hotel and took an elevator to the roof restaurant. The prices for meals seemed high, so we just ordered hot chocolate for everyone. We asked how much it would be for a dish of fries, and they insisted on offering the fries for free. The view of the sunset from the Petra Moon hotel was fantastic, and we enjoyed it for the few dollars we paid for the drinks.
Of course, La Maison is not Movenpick. It doesn't have a swimming pool or a sauna. But we felt it was a great find for the money. The only reason I am not giving it a five star is because the sink in our son and daughter-in-law's room did not drain well, so that was kind of unpleasant. If you want friendly service in a pleasant, well-situated hotel, we recommend La Maison.
