For the price, compared to the prices of other hotels in the area The Seven Wonders Hotel is very good value. The hotel situated at the top of Wadi Musa and it's about a 20 minute walk downhill to the entrance of Petra (it's another 20 minutes walk from the entrance to reach the Treasury of Petra) I would get a taxi back up to the hotel as it is quite a steep walk. Taxi's are very reasonably price. Do not pay more than 5 Jordanian Dinar for the trip back to the hotel. Seven Wonders was clean, comfortable and the service was good. Breakfast was adequate and filling. The roof top pool area affords you very nice views over Wadi Musa. If you have a car you can easily park it on the road outside the hotel. We did have some issues with the internet dropping in and out, but manager Abdullah was quick to remedy this. He even treated us to a drive and night time Rosemary tea at Little Petra Bedouin Camp, which was a wonderful experience. There are lots of children in Petra and I took a bag of balloons and handed out individual balloons to some of the children. It was a joy to see the smiles on their faces. Please do not give them sweets, as their teeth do not need the and try not to give them money as the Bedouin will stop sending their children to school, if they realise their children can make money from selling rocks or begging.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Welcome to the Seven Wonders Hotel / Petra situated with dramatic views over the town and valley of Wadi Moussa, which houses the ancient city of Petra, now one of the new 7 Wonders of the World. We are a newly built 4* hotel with super-added facilities of a rooftop swimming pool and terrace, and what we believe is the best fitted Turkish Baths suite in Jordan. The hotel is well situated at the upper end of the scenic Wadi Moussa valley and town. It is a short walk from the town center and souk. Although the area generally is hilly, some of the roads being quite steep, the walk from the hotel to the upper part of the town is almost flat and can be undertaken by most reasonably fit people. We are easy to locate, a short drive in on the main access roads from Shawbak and Ma'an, on the right hand side, near to the Police Station. The principle part of the town, and the Petra ancient ruin, is on the same road below us continuing through the valley. Our aim at the hotel is to provide you with a happy experience of Arabia within a comfortable family orientated setting. To this end, we regret we cannot accommodate pets, nor do we serve alcohol inside the hotel, although it is available elsewhere in the town. The building which was completed in 2012 is of a tower design with lift and stairs The lift means it is suitable for elderly and slightly less able bodied guests. We regret bathroom facilities are not adapted for wheelchairs, nor for walking appliances, due to lack of floor space. ... more less
