This hotel was better than I expected. The room was beautiful and clean, with a comfortable bed and a comfortable reclining armchair (perfect after walkin for several km in Petra) and an amazing view. It even has a bidet. The staff is always kind, smiling and professional, despite the fact that their boss is always breathing down their neck in a unnerving way. The breakfast is very good and the cook prepares in front of you scrambled eggs with vegetables of your choice.
However, forget the restaurant: it has a "light buffet", which consists of some cold appetizers and one main course, that is prepared before the beginning of dinner hour (6.30 pm) and kept there under an alluminum foil for 4 hours, until the end of dinner. I am not a fan of restaurants serving food prepared hours before, so we asked if they had anything else. They said that they had an a-la-carte menu, which was hamburger, mixed grill or a couple of other international dishes. Too bad, because I am sure that the chef could prepare good local dishes (the breakfast is very good), but we found out that international kitchen is not his forte. I understand that in low season they cannot afford to offer too many different dishes, but they could prepare a light buffet with the cold appetizers and than prepare the main course on request. Even a single choice of main course would be ok, if prepared on the spot! Until they change the buffet organization, I strongly suggest a restaurant near the center (the roundabout), such as al-arabi restaurant which surely is much less fancy or luxurious, but serves very good food at the same price (we paid 20JD for 2 people).
