Nice hotel up on the hill above the tourist town of Petra. We had asked for a quiet room and were put next to reception, we were able to move to a room with internal windows onto a corridor which wasn't ideal but meant it was at least quiet. The rooms are fairly basic but comfortable enough. It would be worth booking a mountain view as these are at the back of the hotel and looked nice, there were none left when we booked. The location is great if you have a car, without one it's a good walk down to restaurants and Petra and would be hard coming back as it's all uphill. The hotel dinner was good and cheap at 10 JD which we did on the 1st night. The packed lunch for 4 JD was brilliant value and really nice, plenty to keep you going whilst trekking through Petra! Breakfast was adequate, we had omelette on the first morning but then heard the owner telling the staff off for making them so we didn't get offered them on day 2! All in all a good base for Petra as you are hardly in the rooms, the roof terrace is very Jordanian in decor and has great views, it does close quite strictly at 11pm, the owner started moving us out at 10.50pm.
