“I stayed next door, and would have loved it hete”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 25, 2013 via mobile

Since the crown plaza is closed for renovations, this hotel seems like the best bet in town. I was next door at the Edom and this has a much more boutique feel, with a great location minutes from petra, and the main strip downtown. I would save the money from the crown plaza and put it towards a mule ride (not donkey) up petra, night petra and a visit to the crowns cave bar to make a perfect stay in petra. This is a very cute hotel in a good price point

We stayed for 2 nights for our Petra visit. Service was excellent - our luggage was carried to and from our car which was parked safely up the street for us. We received a welcome drink on arrival which was a nice touch
The room was great - big and very clean with a great bathroom with some nice smellies. The mini bar is full of soft drinks and water and was free of charge. We didn't eat in the restaurant in the evening but the breakfast spread was really good - everything you could want to set you up for a full day in Petra!
You are just minutes from the entrance to Petra - this hotel is just up the hill behind the Movenpick
There are a few choices of places to eat at night but you don't come here for the nighlife.

Our Petra tip: Do Petra at night first (the hotel will prebook tickets for you) it only runs Mon/Weds/Thurs. You really need more than one day at Petra - it is a very long, dusty, hot day. There is only one route in and out so you have to walk all the way back after a very long climb to the Monastery. If you can, try to buy a 3 day ticket (only 10JD more than a 1 day ticket) That way you can do Petra on days 1 and 3 with a day off in between! Unfortunately our itinerary didn't allow for this and the ticket does have to be used on consecutive days so you can't do Petra, then leave and come back again later in the holiday - if you buy a 3 day ticket then it has to be used over the next 3 days!
Unmissable site and a great hotel to use as a base

Excellent location - just a few minutes walk from the entrance to Petra, but fairly quiet at night.
Friendly, cheerful and welcoming staff, even on arrival at 5.30am !
Clean, comfortable rooms.
Excellent breakfast and dinner buffets - very good variety of food, both "local" and "international" dishes, and very well presented.
Good value for money.
I would certainly be very happy to stay here again.

a 5 minute walk from the entrance to the petra site, great amenities, comfy beds, nice sheets, clean, great attentive service. didnt make it to the pool. there was some confusion with our booking before our arrival-- my friend had booked months in advance of our stay and was contacted that due to overbooking, they would move us to their partner hotel. my friend rebuffed and demanded they honor our original booking, and they did, and gave us complimentary access to the mini bar. fantastic breakfast.

We stayed 2 night in triple room.
Very clean, close to Petra main site, kind staff & management and very good breakfast. We just loved cooling down in the pool after a 2 dusty visits to the Petra site, enjoying reasonably-priced alcohol-free cocktails and ice cream...it seemed like an oasis. The service was very good, after having a BBQ dinner the first night, they remembered and proposed to cook some traditional Jordanian dish called Maqluba (upside down) especialy for us if we would eat there again for variation. Family-owned business with manager/owner who really try to please their guests

Stayed here years ago but still have their business card, the place was clean and the staff were friendly and the hotel was affordable. Great value! Located very close to the main gate to Petra, you couldnt ask for a better location

We had booked this hotel after reading reviews on tripadvisor. After we arrived and gave the desk our names we were notified the the website we had booked through overbooked the hotel. However, the manager was at the front desk and had already made alternate accommodations for us. He had booked us in a nearby 4 star hotel for the same rate as the Petra Moon. He accompanied as to the other hotel to make sure our check in went smooth and also provided us with the dinner buffet at the Petra moon after we were checked in to our new hotel. The second time we were able to check in to the Petra Moon, awesome staff, great location, rooms were clean. Would definitely stay again and recommend this hotel.
