The hotel was booked by our tour company "Fun Time Tours", trying to add to their bottom line... Room was terrible, dark and dated. Tub disgusting with rust. Was ready to go anywhere else and they provided us with a more acceptable room. Shouldn't have had to complain to get a decent room. Breakfast was spartan, not with writing about....

We were there with a tour, so we didn't choose this hotel—it was chosen for us by the tour operator. In our room, the toilet did not flush, but at least we had some water pressure and hot water.

Stayed just 1 night thankfully. Regardless of where in world this is, the hotel is not 3 stars, maybe 1. The carpets one did not feel like walking barefoot upon. The mattress had the springs coming through. The bathroom was so awful I don't even want to recall it. Breakfast not much better. Location was good, short walk to everything.

Very good location walking distance to Petra. Rooms very basic. For two people, only one small and one large towel in the bathroom. Plugs in the room destroyed, was afraid to plug my charge in it. Breakfast very poor, no choices at all. Although so many tables and chairs, but no one for breakfast. After check out, they let us...

The hotel is very comfy and affordable for college students, me and friends had a great time there and everyone was helpful. We enjoyed the view at night from the tares, and they also offered free deserts dessert because of a religious holiday. Wifi was good, the staff are friendly and the rooms are clean. We really liked how the...
