“Great Hotel”
Reviewed September 29, 2013

Really a nice place to stay. Walking distance to Petra. Great food. Fun Turkish bath complimentary with room when I stayed there. Wonderful staff. All around just a top notch hotel.

Just great value for your money too.

This September we had a very comfortable stay at the Amra hotel. Free shuttles to Petra leave at 7, 8, and 9 am and bring you to the entrance within couple minutes. In the afternoon there are again three free shuttles back to the hotel, although we used a taxi for two dinars.
The hotels breakfast is very nice, including traditional Jordan houmous and bread, but also pancakes, waffels, fresh baked eggs, several sorts of fruits, toasted bread and yoghurt. After the tiring day in Petra we were very happy with the swimming pool of the hotel (although the water wasn't crystal clear). At check out day we were allowed to use the pool and shower before heading on to our next destination. Small point of critisism: The mosk next door will wake you up just before sunrise. This hotel is a good alternative if you don't want to pay lots of money for hotels such as the movenpick.

This is a fantastic hotel with friendly staff. The hotel supplied transport to and from Petra free of charge each day and the pool was great after a long day seeing the sights. This is a great place to stay if visiting Petra and would recommend this hotel to anyone if visiting Petra.

This hotel was the best choice for us in Wadi Musa. It is small but extremely well run with well thought out facilities. The reception are super efficient (and nice) and provide you with a map of Wadi Musa, Petra, a special price for a turkish bath, and advice about good times to visit Petra. It was heaven to come back to a turkish steam bath, scrub and massage after clambering around beautiful Petra. The terrace is a lovely place to eat or have a drink in the evening and breakfast (included, and quite good) in the mornings. We visited the more luxurious option right next to Petra gate and were very glad to have chosen this far more personal, extremely well managed alternative at a fraction of the price

Room Tip: Choose one with a view over the Petra escarpments

Dear Valued Guest,
Thank you for taking the time to provide such a detailed review of your stay at our hotel.
It's great to hear that you found the welcome and the information provided by our reception staff to be helpful and efficient. Providing little things like an orientation map and some helpful tips ensure that our guests have the best experience possible in Petra. The terrace is a lovely place to relax at the end of the day, enjoying a drink or your dinner whilst watching the sun set over the Petra Mountains. It's good to hear that you were able to take advantage of our Turkish bath facilities and help to ease tired muscles after a long day walking in Petra.
We would love for you, your family or friends to stay with us in the future.
Warm Regards

The Amra Palace has an extremely friendly and helpful staff. They provide warm Middle Eastern hopitality and gave wonderful advice and tips in making my stay in Petra a lifetime experience. The hotel location is a short taxi ride from Petra and very good value. The rooms are clean and service is excellent.

hotel with swimming pool, jacuzzi, turkish bath and very comfortable room.
kind staff, good breakfast and free hotel bus to/from petra.
some little problems with wifi (not always working).
the distance to petra is little more than 1 km, but there is a free bus from the hotel to the entrance of petra and back.
It was very nice also to have a look to the village around the hotel.

Room Tip: my room was at 2th floor and there was no noise

The hotel staff where very helpful, including an early check in with no issues. Room was clean and well appointed and the breakfast choice was splendid, lovelly coffee. Staff helped with every query and made the children feel very welcome including sorting the internet for them. I would recommend for a stay at Petra.
