“Great View. Hotel layout confusing.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 1, 2014 via mobile

This hotel is built in a mountain slope. Lobby is in one of the top floors and rooms are beneath. The floor layout is very confusing! To get to your room you have to go down two floors, then walk a long sloping hallway to take another elevator that will take you down to your floor, then choose the right hallway to your room. You need some time to figure this out.

All rooms have a fantastic view of the desert.

The room had a strong cigarette smell. The staff sprayed it out, but it bacame worse. Had to open the window to clear it out. Desert dust came in.

The Dinner and breakfast buffets were good. For breakfast, the egg station took too long in preparing eggs to order, delaying many fellow passengers.

The hotel offers a lunch box option for those going to Petra for the day.

Stayed April 2014, traveled with friends

Visiting Petra again, I wanted to stay in a hotel where I could get the best sunset and sunrise pictures. Petra Panorama was the right choice! You have a great view from your own balcony. Room was clean and quiet, breakfast and dinner were ok.

Room Tip: Room with an own balcony

After 14 days spent in Holy land I am able to compare hotels from Egipt, Jordanian and Israel. Ranking is a relative one, Petra Panorama was one of the best. Well organised, decent food, nice room with a magnificent view. It is not much to say. Great choice.

This is the last hotel we stayed for our Israel/Jordan trip, so have a lot of other comparables. Rooms definitely comfy and clean. Balcony attached to room gives good view to the valley. Food is universally bad in this part of the world (using a westernised or Asian standard) and no exception for this hotel either. Their breakfast choices even less than other hotels. Nevertheless, its easily one of the best ones we had in our trip and allowed us to get up refreshed every mng.

Location is not central what makes it ideal for groups or people with rented car,

Dinner was good, Breakfast average and basic

Rooms are large / comfort

Main issue I got upset of was the unreasonable cost of drinks at the Lobby Bar, paying 7.5 JD for half liter Draft Beet is not accepted by all means...

Stayed here just for a night on a tour of Petra, onward to Israel the day after. As with many of the past reviews, one key strength of this hotel is its location affording awesome view of mountains and other "whatever-you-call-it" rock formations.

The techies would not be pleased to know, however, that wi-fi is available only in the lobby area (at least at the time of this feedback).

This hotel is relatively new and - to me - is passable. Heater worked during the winter, bed was comfortable especially the pillows, hot water pressure was fine, and there is a huge balcony for the views.

Having said that, the balconies - ideally - could be more "fenced" as I could walk over to the balconies of other rooms. Good only if you booked the whole floor/section with friends, not if the folks next room are total strangers.

Service
Reception and Bell Service were engaging and helpful. Could not say the same for the ones in Coffee Shop who were just going through the motions. At one point during breakfast, I thought a chef was more interested in his mobile phone than me looking around for butter.

I can imagine this place would be fantastic for a visit during the warmer months. Open the curtain of your room, go out to the balcony, lay your legs on a stool, sip your cup of coffee and look beyond to take in the vast space, forms and pleasant oddities of the Petra region.
