Situated on one of the main streets in central Aqaba, this hotel is well placed for down town. It is a modern multi-story building with a large reception area and a restaurant behind. Rooms are large with a fierce air conditioning that is hard to control. The TV has limited channels with none in English. The bathroom is basic with...

Al Zaitouna hotel is located in the city center close to the area where the more posh hotels are. Rooms are clean and comfortable as is the reception area. Compared to other hotels in this price range in Jordan it's good value. No alcohol served but that's no place because there are plenty of restaurants nearby that serve beer/wine.

We stayed here as part of the Exodus - A Week in Jordan tour. It was basic, a little shabby but fine. The location was good, just a short distance to the sea, the roman ruins and the ruins of an old church. The breakfast was limited but fine for a couple of nights. Two nights in Aqaba is long...

Stayed at this hotel 5 yrs ago in August 2004. The hotel was very basic. Clean, rooms had all necessities, a/c worked well, washroom, hair dryer. Room service available, reasonably priced. Hotel was a good location, not a far walk from the souk or even restaurants. Room rates were very reasonable as well. All in all, a basic hotel, that...

When I saw the outside of the hotel, I was concerned, but inside the hotel was much nicer. We had bright spacious rooms in a new section. The rooms were clean and everything including the fridge worked (not like all the hotels I stayed at in Jordan). The breakfast was fine although you had to make toast on a panini...

Stayed here as part of a tour group. Clean room, but basic and towels had seen better days. Window looked out on internal landing, so a bit dark and dingy. Breakfast fine. Agree with other reviewers about the nearby felafel shop - very good.

This has quite a grand reception and 2 lifts which is quite different from the fairly basic rooms. The room and ensuite were fine with slightly dated decor. The main drawback was the beds. I have no idea what the mattress,duvet and pillow were stuffed with but it felt like small bits of ripped up foam and were very uncomfortable...

I had searched for so long to find a hotel in Aqaba and they were all either really expensive or had terrible reviews, sometimes both. I booked at the Al Zaitouna for my family of 4, but still a bit wary of the low price we looked at 4 other hotels in the area before we checked in. I was...

Quite a grand reception which belies the basic but clean nature of the rooms. Breakfasts were limited in terms of the types of food on offer. We needed medical advice and help getting taxis, finding a good diving school and a few other bits - the reception staff bent over backwards to help us at all hours of the day/night....
