Petra, Beauty beyond words...Posted May 20, 2017
The location of the hotel is hard to beat, as it is at the entrance of the park, there's another hotel across the street as well. The hotel's staff was VERY cold, unfriendly and it seemed bothered when we approached them, the only exception was a waiter we had, he was the complete opposite!! The room was "blah", we had a balcony that was empty, an the rest of the room felt unwelcoming, if not for the location, I am having a hard time justifying the price. I'd try the other hotel.

Not worth it.Posted May 3, 2017
When booking we werent informed that the hotel would be going under renovation. My husband and I were on our honeymoon and chose this hotel not only for its location, but to make the most of the facilities available. We arrived and the main grand entrance, rooftop bar and the main access to the pool was closed to refurbishment. To access the pool was through a rundown basement and grotty steps, the pool area looked uninviting once there. Had i have known this i would have booked a much cheaper hotel, and compromised on the location (taxi to other hotels would only cost 2/3JD). Really dissapointed i mentioned this to the manager soon after we arrived to try and checkout and stay elsewhere. But as we had already paid we couldnt and they offered complimentary dinner instead. Buffet breakfast and dinner good, lovely waiter there called Omar. Room comfortable, but bathroom small and shower/bath grotty and definately not 5star. Given the choice again, id save money and stay elsewhere. Im also dissapointed there was no mention of refurbishment on expedia.

Location is selling point - operations notPosted Apr 29, 2017
Pros: The building itself, and public furniture. The location next to Petra is very convenient. The breakfast buffet was good.
Cons: Operations. Take care of the details. Take inventory of your rooms. Ask the guests about the stay at checkout. The juice in the breakfast wasn't good
Location: Petra! And, well, Petra!
Yes, this hotel is steps from the Petra visitor center. You pay accordingly for the location. Yes core building itself is beautiful with stone lobby, atrium and restaurant. We had a a junior suite. The room was decent, but "newly renovated" as advertised may be a bit of a stretch. The bathroom was not nice. It smelled distinctly of urine. I asked the hotel to deep clean it, and not sure they did anything. The cove light around the mirror had fallen off. The bidet leaked. The door stop was broken so the door would hit the shower. We didn't have a turn down service (as advertised). The TV had a loose cord which didn't fit and fell off. The "stocked" complimentary mini-bar had couple of sodas and juices, and 1 packet of chips. There was 1 large bottle of water provided per day. Just 2 small creamers were provided for 3 nespresso coffee packets and various teas and nescafe packets. My wife used the gym in the morning, and no one was there, no towels left out, no remote to watch the TV. The operations of the hotel were honestly a disappointment. Why is the beautiful roof garden, featured so prominently in their advertising of the hotel, closed during peak Petra visiting season (before may)? It would have been nice, even if they aren't operating service there to have it open as an amenity. The adjacent tea room was also closed.

Very good hotel right near to the entrance of thEPosted Feb 21, 2017
Pros: Proximity to the Centre of Petra .
Cons: Getting sachets of coffee for the room was a problem, but a minor one.
Location: Plenty of cheaper restaurants nearby, but they tended to sell all the same types of food.
Great that the hotel was so near to the Centre as it meant we could easily relax following a long walk. Lovely and warm in the room after a coldish day.
