The temperature of water in the pool, that is! Petra's pretty arresting too and the Petra Palace Hotel is a five minute walk from the main gate. Helpful staff, free WIFI and a fridge in the room all make for a good value sojourn. As other reviewers have said, there's a certain shabbiness around the edges and works are in progress, including in the area of the allegedly heated pool. I've stayed here twice now (from choice) and the pool is of limited interest as it doesn't get the sun for long enough in autumn to heat the icy waters. I imagine this could be a selling point in high summer but not in October/November. Tour groups coming and going can be a bit noisy, for example, at breakfast, but, on the plus side, breakfast starts at 06:30 so you can eat before beating the crowds in the Siq. I found the variety and quantity on offer at breakfast perfectly satisfactory, but the buffet dinner didn't appeal. There are plenty of options for dinner close by.
