After driving to Petra from Amman we ended up at Edom hotel at about 7:30pm. The hotel is about a 5 minute walk to the main entrance.

They quoted us a rate of 45JD including taxes and breakfast for the both of us.

The clincher was when the manager told us we could check out upto 5:00pm the next day considering we checked in so late.

The rooms were decent... bathroom was alright, and the breakfast was not bad. Service was excellent.

Overall good value for money.

One of the perils of going to Petra is that you are going to be doing an enormous amount of walking in order to see all the wonders that it has to offer.

Given this, it is great to know that there is a good hotel that you can stay in right by the entrance that will not cost a fortune.

Rooms are clean and of a reasonable size (if a little dated), the staff are very helpful, there is an amazing breakfast buffet and free wifi.

Given that the hotel is right by the entrance into Petra it is a decent distance from the centre of town, but there are a number of nice restaurants handy and getting a taxi outside the entrance is easy if you want to head further afield.

We stayed here for two nights and found the staff and accomadation to be excellent. It is very close to the entrance of Petra, there are a few restaurants at the end of the road with a good choice of cuisines. I don't recommend the barbecue if they have one on the roof terrace, we had it our first night and it was not worth the money.
Left my mobile phone in the room when we checked out and the hotel couriered it up to Amman to my new hotel for me, so have to say the staff were excellent.
If you want to ask about a tour to Wadi Rum via then they have a Bedouin guide called Mohammed they can use, I highly recommend.
Wifi only available in the public areas but that was fine. Breakfast was good enough, some cold meats and you can ask for fresh cooked eggs.

Fortunately, our memories of Jordan will be all about the wonderful experience at Petra, and not about this hotel. Our room was old and compact, although there was a balcony with a nice view.
There was no tea/coffee making facilities in the room.
Dinner was disappointing in quality and selection (e.g. chicken was tough and dry, probably re-cooked). Small drink cost 2 dinars!
After trekking around Petra for the whole day, we didn't spend much time anyway in this hotel.

After seeing the Treasury, you can keep walking about 20 minutes to a lunch place where they sell lunch packs for about 7.50 dinars (pita bread with meat, fruit, yoghurt, biscuits). It is worth the tough walk to the Monastery, and then going on to see the "views at the end of the world". Don't miss these views - they are breathtaking!
By the time we walked back to the Treasury it was about 7.00 pm and there were no crowds around - wonderful!

Stayed at this hotel as part of a cycling tour for 3 nights. The best thing about the hotel is its location, but that is all. The shower was the worst bit, and i know there is a water problem in Jordan as a whole, but it was a dribble that came out and unfortunately we were at the hotel for the longest. Nearby there were two very nice hotels Movenpick and the hotel attached to the Cave Bar, and I am sure they had proper showers so my advice is go there!!
