Clean, simple guest house
Posted Nov 1, 2016 on Hotels
We stayed 1 night at Al Rashid, arriving quite late at night and leaving in the morning to explore Petra. It was nothing fancy, but served its purpose by giving us a comfortable, clean place to spend the night. The staff was helpful and friendly, and breakfast was pretty good though simple. Wifi did not work in our room, so I had to sit in the stairwell for a while to check in with people and confirm our plans for the next day, but at least they had it working and it got the job done. My one complaint would be the lack of hot water for showers, which was not mentioned. I don't mind cold showers in tropical climates, but having to take a cold shower in Petra, where it gets quite cool at night, was not fun! If they don't have hot water that should be mentioned in the listing information, or if there's a way to turn it on & off (like we found in other hotels in Jordan) someone should explain that when they show you the room.
