This was a great place to spend our time in Petra, even though it wasn't very close to the gates of the entrance of Petra. The advantage of this was that because we were quite high up a hill, we had a very nice view of Petra and it's village, and could watch a very beautifull sunset every night. We made use of the free drop offs and pick ups both days we were there (organised by the hotel), which were leaving at very suitable times.
The hotelroom had a flatscreen TV, and the beds were a lot better than most beds in other hotels in Jordan during this trip. The hotel has a very nice dining area upstairs, which is sort of a lounge area as well. You can also sit here on the balcony where you can enjoy the view over Petra. The breakfast was good, with a personal explanation to everyone on your first morning. The lunch packages that you can buy for 4 JD every day are great.
The owner from New Zealand had great advices for the next stop of our travels, and also her Jordanian husband was very helpful with this and made the booking for us by phone, and could even arrange a surprise discount for us.
All in all a great experience, I would definitely come back to his hotel if I would ever come back to Petra.
