Reviewed August 18, 2014

Stayed in March 2013 for two nights the day in between was my 65th birthday and I always wanted to visit Petra and my birthday was a good reason to go then.

Was worried a few days before arriving as President Obama was due to visit and I would have been hacked off if was the same days as me. Fortunately, he arrived three days later.

It is almost at the entrance to the Visitors Centre but this was not a problem with noise. Little time was spent in the hotel apart from sleeping and meals. The food was OK.

Whilst I will not be returning to Petra as it has been crossed off my "bucket list", I would have no problem recommending this, purely on its location.

One of the best hotels we've stayed at and right door to the Petra Unesco world heritage site. The hotel has 5 star dinning, spectacular pool and great security. We'll definitely go back and we highly recommend Moevenpick Resort Petra, when you are in Jordan.

A two minute stroll from the Visitor's Centre, Moevenpick Resort Petra, is at the best possible location to visit the majestic Petra. My wife and I stayed overnight with little time in the hotel, but the time spent there was comfortable and most importantly relaxing. The room, relatively small was intelligently designed and the decor much comforting. The room service was prompt, efficient and food (beef burger) was delicious. Little choice for vegetarians, but a decent Margaritas Pizza did keep my wife pleased. The very important morning breakfast was decent, a bit scattered in the layout but an expert hand at the omelette station made up for it. The spaces in the hotel are well arranged for relaxing and has a good open roof bar. The staff are cordial and willing to lend a helping hand. We enjoyed our short stay and definitely recommend it.

Room Tip: Uppermost level, so that less distance to travel from the roof top bar

Closest possible location for visiting the old Petra site. It's literally a stone throw from the entrance to the Petra site. Excellent market area with many shops full of friendly, non-pushy merchants. Very clean rooms and extremely safe, friendly environment.

Best thing about this hotel is the location.. We just had to walk 40 steps to reach the entry gate to Petra.
This is a small, niche hotel.
Frankly, the fun is to spend as much time in old Petra instead of hotel hence I recommend this hotel as the location is strategic !
Go for it :))

We toured Israel and Petra and this hotel was the best of the 5 we visited. The location is perfect, the rooms were beautiful as were the entire facilities in the hotel. We had dinner and breakfast at the hotel. Both served excellent food with plenty of choices. If you are visiting the Petra historical site, there cannot be a better hotel.

We chose to stay at the Moevenpick in Petra due to its location next to the visitors centre. It is indeed 100 metres from where you buy the ticket to enter... and since you are going to walk A LOT it is really appreciated to have your hotel next door when you finish.

Other than that, our stay there for 2 nights was very pleasant. The room was smallish but very nice, comfortable bed and good quality amenities. We tried the room service which was ok and the buffet breakfast which was very good.

Don't forget to try the Moevenpick ice creams!! They even deliver them to the room 24/7!!

I would definitely recommend anyone visiting Petra and looking for a 4* or 5* option to choose this property!
