“Not bad if on a budget”
Reviewed 24 April 2009

We moved to the Venus from the Movenpick because we felt like we were wasting money at the Movenpick. The Hotel Venus is right next to the Movenpick with possibly a better view. The Venus is a no frills place but not a bad deal if you are on a budget (Movenpick was $150US, Venus was $45US). The rooms were run down but the sheets were clean. The bathroom was relatively clean. Fortunately, the toilet worked but I will admit that the seat was broken off and you needed to do some balancing. The breakfast at the Venus wasn't worth walking upstairs for, except for free coffee. The guy at the front desk was helpful. The place wasn't great, but not horrible, and better than many of the places up the hill in Wadi Musa.

Reviewed 12 October 2008

I stayed at this hotel with a group on an Intrepid Tour. Yes, it was very run down and the rooms were tatty but we had a bit of a laugh about it - especially when one of our group had a toilet overflow which created a huge waterfall down the stairs! The staff were friendly enough and kindly let us use the internet for no charge, and there was breakfast and it was very good by Jordanian standards - boiled eggs, dukkha, pita bread, halwa etc. Some of the showers didn't work (mine did, so I was very popular!). I wouldn't go back there, and actually wouldn't recommend it unless it was very cheap and you have a sense of humour about it, but I've stayed in worse!

Reviewed 23 June 2008

We were on a tour with a small group and were booked into this hotel by the agent last month.

What a disaster. A small poky entrance, broken furniture stacked nearby, unfriendly staff. When we got to the rooms, the situation didn't improve. Some of us found used linen, used soap, and our toilet didn't flush. The agent refused to move us saying there were no other rooms in Petra.

Our group of 12 unanimously walked out and went next door to the Petra Moon, and immediately saw a world of difference. Unsurprisingly, we found lots of availability. I will enter a separate review for that, but suffice to say that we found out the Venus was charging JOD 28 without breakfast for shabby rooms when Petra Moon charged JOD 30 with breakfast and much better accommodation.

I understand that the agency has removed the Venus Hotel from its lists and I recommend that other travellers take this route.
