“super friendly and welcoming”
Reviewed March 1, 2013

I was with my mom and her friend in Petra Dec 2011, for the 3rd time. the other times the hotel was always the only disappointing experience in Petra. So this time we made an effort in finding a good hotel, with warm rooms and hot water! Not only did we get a good room for 3 people with nice heating (it is cold in Petra in the winter) and nice hot water, but we also met lovely people! The owner are amazingly friendly and helpful. I am sure I will go back to Petra again and with out a doubt I will stay at rocky mountain again.

We stayed for 1night only and the price is reasonable for this type of hotel but do not expect too much. We made booking thru booking.com and they lost that so it took like 30min before they found out if they have some room for us. We were lucky they still had but with a bad view to the "garden". Our reservation was saying flat TV but there was the old type...I have no clue regarding the programs, we were not there for the Tv, just to say it did not match with the information from the reservation.

Be aware that the rooms are quiet small but clean and if you arrive in the time of cold weather it can happened you get very cold room and it took like 45min before we had a good temperature in our room so not so pleasant start.

Hot water is available in the evening from 18-22:00 and it has enough strong stream so hot shower after long day is very pleasant. There are hot water morning hours too but I am not sure about the schedule.

Breakfast - interesting carpet room with nice view on Petra. The offer is limited - sweet yoghurt, eggs - omelets, jam. if you like to eat some musli or corny, bring your owen.

We were not excited for the hotel at all due to the really bad start but anyway it is somehow reasonable for the price.

Room Tip: Ask for higher floors - if available to have the view.

After a terrible stay at the shockingly bad Karak Rest House, my wife and I made an early departure and reached Petra--and the wonderful Rocky Mountain Hotel--early, and far before check-in time. However, Jane, the face and soul of the hotel, greeted us, stored our luggage for us, suggested routes through Petra, and explained where we could find some food beforehand--despite suffering from a terrible flu! She proved an excellent host over the two nights we stayed, helpful and interesting, as we discussed how a Brit/Kiwi ends up running a hotel in Petra.

The hotel itself is great, and fantastic value. Rooms are clean, beds very firm and comfortable, and the water hot. The terraced roof is a definite highlight: with a glorious view over the city, it's a fantastic place to watch the sun set and watch the lights come on and dot the horizon. The evening dinner is excellent: I normally prefer to head into town to find something to eat, but after a day of trekking through Petra, the dinner (chicken, rice, veg, tasty) was a welcome alternative. Breakfast is fine as well: hummus, jams, tea/coffee, bread, and a very fluffy omlet cooked fresh. Only the packed lunch was a bit disappointing: the sandwich was perfect for a Petra break, but the rest was a bit too much junk-food heavy for my taste.

A fantastic place from which to launch your exploration of Petra! Highly recommend.

Jane is a fantastic host at this brillant budget hotel in Wadi Musa near Petra.

Rooms are clean and well-maintained and there is an fantastic sheltered roof terrace decorated in Bedouin style serving free coffee & tea all day and all night.

There is a dinner served for a reasonable price at the roof terrace (buffet style) and they are also able to make delicious lunch packs to take to Petra for only 4JD.

It is on the outskirts of Wadi Musa, but they will drive you to Petra and pick you up - or you can always walk (about 15 minutes).

Will happily stay here again!

Just perfect if you want superb views over Petra's mountains(from the folksy lounge/dining room and balconies),helpful staff,excellent hearty local food cooked by Bedouin staff,and comfortable rooms at a very reasonable $40 a night for a single.The owner or her partner personally deliver and pick you up at the main entrance to Petra Gorge daily at prearranged times,and Jane is a fountain of info on Petra and Jordan.Highlight for me was a spectacular lightning and rain storm that dazzled everyone in the hotel as it lit up the Petra Range for hours from our eerie under the hotel roof.The flash floods had receded by the time we splashed through the narrow gorge to the Treasury next morning!

Room Tip: Balcony rooms give you direct access to the spectacular views from each floor at no extra cost.

I highly recommend staying at Rocky Mountain. For a low price of approx $40/night, you get a free breakfast and a free shuttle to Petra's entrance and a very cozy room. The staff is all very cordial and warm and the owner, a Brit/NZ woman, was an absolute delight. She was very knowledgeable and generous and quite funny too. Two thumbs up for the Rocky Mountain hotel!

The stay at Petra, at the Rocky Mountain was a welcome end to a 4 week journey.

It is simple. clean. comfortable. friendly. Everything you need without excess. A a

Jane, is amazing. She arranged travel and outings for us, negotiated cab fares, helped us in every way we asked. She has a stern exterior but is charming, knowledgeable, and will do anything to help make the stay pleasant. By the way, Jane is not British but from New Zealand. I can not imagine how hard it is to run a business there, where a replacement toilet seat is a rare commodity.. Thank you Jane.

Excellent value, great service. Enjoy the quaint uniqueness of the establishment and not dwell upon the little stuff. If you want to stay at the movenpic then go there, it is across town.

The only negative is that somewhere in the neighborhood is a nasty incinerator with a foul odor that kept our windows shut and us off the balcony.

Room Tip: each room is very different and some are unusual in lay out.
