A functional basic hotel that provided a practical base for visiting Petra. Reasonable value for money but don't expect too much. The buffet style breakfast and dinner filled a corner but was unmemorable. Efficient enough front desk. Many groups stayed here. The best thing was the location, just a couple of hundred yards from the entrance to Petra which, given the site itself involves so much walking, was a blessing.

We stayed at Edom Hotel on our trip to Petra. We arrived very late and the front desk waited for us with a smile. (If booking through Bookings, make sure to phone the hotel and arrange late check-in with them as they cancel any bookings after midnight)
We had a lovely clean room and breakfast was good.
I would recommend Edom Hotel to anyone staying in Wadi Musa.
Very close to the entrance of Petra.

I was quite apprehensive when choosing this hotel for my 3 night stay in Petra. As it's high season, all the better 3-star hotels were booked out months ahead. I checked in with great trepidation. As with other reviewers, it is true that the lift to the back rooms was up some stairs, but if you are patient and wait a bit, you could actually take the lift fronting the lobby that doesn't require any step climbing, and roll your bags to the back of the building. Thankfully I was given a room on the second floor which meant I could use the staircase to go up and down easily to the foyer as both lifts can only fit 2 people with bags and is super slow. Only downside was that in the evening, you could smell food being prepared as the room is above the restaurant, but it's no big deal. It's a basic room. No point trying to fiddle with your air conditioner because it's centrally controlled. The telly is a bit complicated as everything is in Arabic and you need to take some time to understand how it works or ask someone to come and help you. Generally, most of the staff don't speak English, but they are kind and helpful. It really depends on what you are after in a hotel in Petra. If you are after a 3 star hotel that is within close proximity to the Petra site, then this is your place. It doesn't have the best shower (very weak water pressure), toilet doors that can't lock, air conditioning/heating you can't control and a tv that you can't really work out if you can't speak Arabic. BUT the upside is, it does provide you is a good hearty daily breakfast that is replenished very quickly, pleasant English speaking staff at the reception and friendly house keeping and wait staff. I came to see Petra, not to enjoy the facilities of a luxury hotel. Edom fitted my needs - a clean bed and hearty breakfast, friendly staff.

We stayed 3 nights at the Edom Hotel to visit Petra and it is 3 minutes away from the entrance so excellent ! The restaurant was good for breakfast and diner (10 JOD / person for the buffet). The room was clean and functional but the walls are thin so we hear everyone in the corridor which sometimes annoying when people come back from Petra By night at 11pm and you wish to sleep to get up early in the morning.. The genuine problem for us was the parking. They do not have enough space for all customers so they asked to keep the keys to move the car when convenient for buses .. end of the story on the morning we checked out (we were heading to Wadi Rum so we had to go early) they had parked our car in a tiny spot and it took us 30min to get it out without breaking it with other cars or the walls. I suggest everyone to park the car in the street to avoid any issue.

We were booked here by a travel agent as it was the only option left in Petra (which is really worth the visit btw). The hotel itself is terrible and not at all worth the money ($200) considering we paid the same price for a 5 star hotel in Amman. The rooms are incredibly old and rundown. The drains in the bathroom smelled and the towels, while clean, were threadbare and frayed around the edges. Neither the T.V nor the Air Con were working despite asking for them to be fixed. Dinner and breakfast were included and were average but edible. I’d say this is a 1 star hotel at best. Avoid at all cost and stay in the Movenpick instead.
