“Just what we wanted!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2013 via mobile

We stayed for two nights in this pleasant hotel. In terms of location it has superb views from most rooms and the main dining area is like you are floating above the city of Petra and the mountains. A very beautiful view. The rooms are large and clean the only thing missing is a kettle and cups, all drinks have to be bought.

The service was fantastic, they work hard to get all you need like organising shuttle to Petra site and anywhere you need to go. This is a free service and you need to use it, it is possible to walk down but takes about 25 mins, coming up would be another story! The food is buffet style it is plentiful, very tasty and a good menu for all. Breakfast is also very good. No complaints at all.

We did not use all the facilities except the pool, it takes a bravehearted person as is not heated.

Overall the service from the lads here made our stay so pleasant they even surprised us with a huge cake with candles lit for our anniversary! The cake was delicious. When the Petra by night was cancelled unexpectantly they even took us to the hills behind Petra to show us the view! To make up for our disappointment.

We recommend this for a trouble free and welcoming place to stay!

The pool was a nice plus with a turkish bath. very conveniently located, just a short distance from Petra. Overall an amzing staff, would definitely stay here again, Management and reception staff were great!! Made our stay very enjoyable.

From the moment you arrive until you check out, you have the most welcoming feeling. The rooms are impeccable en very large. You get a lot of luxury for a very good price. The hotel is not far from Petra or other touristic attractions in the neighborhood. After a long day you arrive in heaven when you can go to the Turkish Bath.
To summon: Great Rooms, Friendly staff, a good restaurant, swimming pool and Turkish bath. What do you want more on a holiday?

we sstayed here in September 2013 the resturaunt staff were great. Reception were a bit odd first asking for payment up front despite the reservation etc. I offered credit card then they decided it was ok to wait until we checked out.
Then when we checked they could not get the card reader to take the card suprise surprise. We paid cash but it left a bad taste especially as the cards worked perfectly everywhere else. Summing up it's ok but if you can find somewhere else then do so.

Hotel is a short walk to Petra site. Located on main street with plenty of shops & restaurants. Rooms are very spacious, impeccably clean, & well appointed. Staff is friendly, helpful & efficient. Great views & beautiful heated pool. The Turkish Bath is not to be missed. For about $22 you get: an incredible steam, jacuuzi, body wash & massage. Mohammed was both my husband's & my masseuse- and he is excellent!

Room Tip: Request a room with mountain view vs. pool view.

We stayed here for 2 nights in 2 different rooms on the 5th floor (510 and 515). The rooms are spacious, beds are comfortable. The breakfast is not too bad. But ... the noise from the chairs in the restaurant on the 6th floor keep u awake or wake you from 5h30 till 23h. The bathroom was flooding and the toilets in both rooms were not properly working. The telephone was broken in 1 of the 2 rooms. So not recommended although it has potential (swimming pool, mountain view, staff)

This was my third time I stayed in al-Anbat I hotel and it was for sure my best time despite the renovation that was going on. I am really looking forward to see the hotel when it will be finished. Service is still excellent and personel is very helpful. The free shuttle to the site of Petra is more then a plus and it doesn't matter at what time of the day. Breakfast and diner are served as a buffet and that is very good so that you can choose what to eat. The swimming pool is very gorgeous and very welcome after a whole day of hiking in Petra. So is also the hammam. As a woman you don't have to worry. The really give you a discret and good treatement. This hotel is a really good choice and not only for families.
Something negative? Maybe a little bit more flowers and plants in the restaurant and hotel would make is more friendly and natural looking.

Room Tip: Choose the rooms in the new part of the hotel because they are much better then the rooms in the old...
