Conveniently located

Close to Petra entrance. We had a room at the end of the building and internet was very patchy. A good breakfast selection each morning we were there.

Close to Petra visitor centre.

This hotel is basic but perfect for exploring Petra. The rooms are slightly dated but clean and functional. The hotel staff can arrange transfers to your next destination. So not stay at this hotel if you have any mobility issues - the hotel is up a small but steep hill.

Great Value

Posted Dec 2, 2013 on Hotels.com
The location was very convenient (approximately 300 yards from the entrance to Petra and the bus station), my room was comfortable and there was ample hot water, which was not always the case in Jordan. The staff was friendly, professional and accommodating The only negative comment is that the décor is a bit dated, but that is a small price to pay for the value provided.

nice hotel on the hill

Posted Jul 24, 2013
Pros: location was perfect, there is only a couple hotels closer to Petra but seemed more expensive.
Cons: not much
Location: visit petra! just 200m walking distance away
the Candles hotel is a decent hotel near Petra, literaly 200 meters to the front entrance. Dont be confused if you get a taxi to there the taxi driver usually doesnt know about hotel location. just tell him to drive you all the way to the end of the road practically to the Petra site entrance, then you ll find the hotel on top of the hill. Nice view from Hotel since it is on the hill. Room was big, and classically decorated. Staff very helpfull, breakfast just basic but okay to start the day, Very pleased with the stay would recomend this hotel and stay again without doubts if coming back to Petra.

perfect location, lovely place

Posted Jun 5, 2013 on Hotels.com
The hotel is just a block from the entrance to the park. We had a lovely room, great air conditioner, generous breakfast, lots of hot water, clean and lovely. The staff was incredibly accommodating and even handed out aluminum foil at breakfast so that guests could pack bag lunches for Petra (where the food concessions are beyond ridiculous).
