Off-season's a little odd
Posted Aug 8, 2016
Awesome to be right next to Petra, this is the very closest hotel. And it's a quick taxi to the back entrance for the shortcut to the Monastery the second day.
When we checked in, they gave us two twins pushed together instead of the king we booked. It was weird that they insisted on not giving us the king bed - then we saw that two or three entire floors were dark the whole time we stayed, so probably they have it down to a couple of floors to save power in the off-season. Still a little weird.
After the Movenpick Dead Sea, this felt like the B team - perfectly fine and pleasant, but we were so impressed with the Dead Sea staff that this was a step down.
If you're coming for Petra, just stay here. It's close, it's easy to go hike at sunset, then get up super early and see more Petra, then nap nap nap!
