Reviewed October 31, 2012

The hotel is located about a I've minute walk from Petra. We got the rooms adjoining the pools and loved it and there was place for the children to play and a good place for all of us to chill in. He evening with food and drink. The buffet breakfast was pretty good. Didn't try the buffet dinner. There are a few popular restaurant very close by but I would suggest the 15 minute walk into the village of Wadi Musa away from Petra for some good local food. We loved Al-Bukhara for food which served superb chicken and lamb kebabs and was packed with locals. Theres a great sweet shop opposite Al Bukhara where the baklava is great.
The bar attached to the hotel is quite a great place to relax with some Petra Beer. The wifi is available just in the corridor between the lobby and the bar or the bar itself and is free for guests(something is better than nothing, and pretty fast ).

Room Tip: Try to get the rooms on the swimming pool level which open onto the courtyard. Great to relax and fo...

Not the most memorable of hotels, as it is quite big and service is unpersonal and not overwhelmingly friendly.

However, it is very conventiently located, only a short walk to the entrance of Petra. The rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable, there's a swimming pool and a nice little bar. Free Wifi in the bar and lobby, if you ask for the code at reception - for unknown reasons they do not tell you at check-in or in any information booklet we've seen.

Very good value for money.

Close to the Petra gate.Ugly from outside. Unfinished front , not very interesting neighbourhood. You have to park the car on the street. But when you get inside the hotel is very comfortable and nice . Good service, clean and large rooms. The shady pool yard is the good place to relax. Breakfasts not too diversified .

Very close to the ancient Petra location 5 min.
Nice and cosy rooms and facilities.
The rooms have A/C and there is a Nice swimming pool to chill out after the day tour.
Very good food.
You can enjoy also a Turkish bath with a moderate charge.
You can plan a trip at night at the "Rock Camp" from the reception, where you can enjoy the sunset, and a lovely beduin night.

Located about two minutes walk from the entrance to the ruins. The food was basic but tasty and heaps of it. The staff were helpful and friendly. The rooms were basic but large and clean. The pool area was nice also. All in all a great value for money hotel, particularly if travelling with children which we were.

The food is not exciting but apart from that you get a quality far above what you could expect for the price. Rooms are large and clean, there is a nice swimming pool and the staff is efficient and friendly and speak excellent English. An extra plus, especially if you visit for more than one day, is the short distance from the entrance to Petra.
