Our party of three would wholeheartedly recommend this hotel. The outstanding characteristic of this place is the warmth of the hospitality displayed by the staff. When they see you, they invariably have genuine smiles on their faces, and this even during Ramadan, which involves fasting from dawn to dusk and would induce significant grumpiness and irritability in many others. They take the time to explain things to you patiently, and all in all they make you feel very well taken care of.
Aside from this, we enjoyed the very comfortable beds in the rooms, the relaxing Turkish bath and swimming pool and jacuzzi (the perfect end to a day of walking in Petra), as well as the delicious bread that they serve during breakfast (note that, during the low season, they do not serve a buffet breakfast in order to minimise wastage). Their terrace is also a pretty good place from which to watch the sunset.
If one wishes to walk from the hotel to the Petra entrance, it is not all that near - we estimate that the walk would take 20-30 min. But one can always take either their free shuttle bus (which departs at 7, 8 and 9am and returns at 4, 5 and 6pm daily) or a taxi (2 Jordanian dinars). And one does not have to go far to get bottled water and other provisions, for there is a shop just 2-3 min away by foot.
