This place is perfectly located and the owner and his son are very helpful. They are simply very nice people who run a nice little and very clean hotel. We stayed in the upstairs suite and had a huge balcony to ourselves. Highly recommended.

Yes the rooms here are somewhat basic and certainly not to the standard in a large 5 star chain. However the warm welcome and convenient location to the ancient city of Gerasa more than make it for it. My partner and I opted to stay in the King room which was a very generous size and had a huge outdoor... More

Ismail and Walib, father and son, run an impeccably clean hotel right across the street from the ancient city of Gerasa, in Jerash. Their hospitality is amazing. We had lessons in cardamom coffee brewing, and thoughtful conversations about the Middle East. Business is hurting due to the current mess in Syria, but we have found Jordan safe and eager for...

We traveled from Petra and arrived to find a genuinely warm welcome. We had been warned by our driver as well as a guide, if we planned to stay at Hadrian'Gate, we should "lower" our expectations after our stay at the Petra Guest House. However, we had done our research and weren't deterred. Yes, it isn't four or even three... More

Conveniently located right across the street from the Roman ruins, Hadrian's Gate Hotel offers a very friendly service, but it will not win any beauty points. At JD 50 a night this was one of the more expensive hotels we visited, and definitely not the best value for money one. It is family-run and your hosts will make you feel... More

What really wins for this Hotel is the hospitality. Ismael,the owner, was both kind and helpful and ready to assist the weary tourist in any way. Lift to the ATM (only 100m),welcome coffee,restaurant tips and directions,sightseeing tips etc. The hotel is spotlessly clean and tidy. Breakfast was a simple but pleasant selection of fresh vegetable,dips, bread, jam and eggs. We... More

There is a hotel with a similar name in Turkey which we nearly booked by accident! This is not bookable over the internet so best give them a call.

Hadrian's Gate Hotel is directly across the road from Hadrian's Gate, the memorial gate built in Gerasa (Jerash) in about 129 AD to celebrate the Emperor's visit. It is a simple, comfortable and extremely friendly and accommodating place to stay. Nothing seems to be too much trouble for Ismael and Walid; they are always there to help.

Conveniently located across the road from Jerash ticket office, this hotel is spotless and offers good value for money. Price includes breakfast and then you just need to wake up at 8am to cross the road and go visit the spectacular Roman ruins.
