We stayed with a family of 5 for two nights at the Taybet Zamman, be aware that this is a few kilometers from Petra, so you need your own car or a taxi ride.

We stayed two nights and the Hotel setting is absolutely stunning, the moment we walked in, after our long day driving the King's Highway and many stopovers on the way, we loved it and felt relaxed. Not only the views of the valley are great, but the village style of the Hotel is amazing, almost takes you back to another era, specially after you stopped in Dana which is very similar village.

The rooms are very well done, very spacious, specially those with double bed and they are very comfortable. Breakfast and Dinner were both excellent. Service in general was very good. The pool has an excellent setting, very relaxing after a long day at Petra, although I must say the water was a bit too cold.

We also wanted to see Petra starting at 6:30, so we would miss breakfast the first day and they prepared very good and well packaged breakfast/lunch boxes for us.

Unless you want to be right at the door of Petra, if you want to experience a very good quality hotel in a pretty unique setting I definitely would recommend the Taybet Zamman.

We staid at this hotel for 2 nights at the beginning of April, as part of our short tour of Jordan.
As other reviewers have observed, there are no hotels in Petra itself, you can stay right outside (probably paying a lot more), or about 10 minutes' drive away.

This hotel used to be a Jordanian village and it's certainly kept all its original atmosphere, with narrow stone alleyways and dinky little doors. It's situated on a hill, on the edge of a pretty spectacular valley.

We were there as a rather big group and everybody's room was a little different, all very spacious and with a lot of charme, plenty of space, spacious bathroom with wonderful toiletries, and charming piece of furniture.

The restaurant was in what looked like a system of interconnected stone caves (sorry for the bizarre description), the ambience was amazing and the food delicious, by far the best we had in Jordan! I agree with a previous reviewer, the Umm Ali was to die for. A travel companion who'd visited other countries in the Middle East said that was the best she ever tasted.
Plenty of variety for meat, fish, and vegetarians, with lots of fresh food for salads and great hoummus. Great desserts too!

Overall, one of the best hotels I've ever staid at. If you like copycat big American chains that all look the same this won't be for you, but if you want to stay somewhere a little bit special and that really feels well integrated in the country you're in, I would definitely recommend this.
Should I go back to Petra (and I definitely hope I will), this is where I'll be staying!

Room Tip: No 2 rooms are the same, so it's difficult to say. I visited quite a few and loved them all.

This is designed as an old Jordanian village and is very nicely done. The restaurant is great and the swimming pool good. There rooms seem to vary and it wasn't very busy when we were there (it was the end of the season) so I would certainly ask to see other options if you don't have a view. Having said that they were all clean and nicely decorated. It is a little removed from Petra but we liked that because it was very peaceful.The reception staff weren't very friendly but everyone else was great.

This hotel was very popular in the 90s, so their notices say. The village concept sort of works and our room and bathroom were absolutely fine. The food was good - particularly liked the Umm Ali pudding - like a bread and butter pudding but more interesting. It is out of the way of Wadi Musa and Petra, though the hotels seem to be either on a panorama area in a remote cluster or actually opposite the Petra entrance, so Taybet Zaman's location on the edge of a small town is an alternative.

The thing that really made it for us is that we had to visit the local hospital twice and fax documents to and from our UK insurers. The wifi in the reception area was really useful (and reliable) and the practical help, support, concern and kindness we received from all the staff was genuine and much appreciated.

What do you want from your hotel - the toiletries were good, the tv channel fine, we ate well, the beds were comfortable - even for people nursing several injuries. And they are very good in a crisis. Yes, it worked very well for us.

The rooms need serious updating. Bathrooms on verge of unpleasant. Shower head hung on a loose bolt that had already been relocated twice. Linens and blankets bread are. Buffet restaurant food is so-so. Staff tried, of course, there isn't a woman to be seen working around (they probably clean the rooms). Don't really care about tv, but you better not; grainy 16" old school with broken remote. Still waiting for that extra requested pillow!
