The staff is very friendly and helpful, the breakfast is pretty good though I was missing some fruit. Rooms are nice and clean. There's a swimmingpool but the orientation is not the best as it's not getting much sun. Wifi works terribly.

This is a nice little 3-star place right in the heart of Aqaba. Sure, there are better places to stay. So, if you want luxury or beachfront then look elsewhere. But, if you are just here for 1 or 2 nights and want to be central then this place is good. You can walk to shops, restaurants, the marina, the...

We had lovely time in this comfortable and friendly boutique hotel in the heart of Aqaba. The staff is super friendly and the rooms and lobby are clean and comfortable. The owner family is wonderful and welcoming and helped us in so many ways! There is even a small pool, but if you wish to go for a bigger pool...

We stayed here for a night before our onward trip to Petra. This hotel is centrally located and the staff very friendly and helpful. It provides buffet style breakfast and dinner, and has a cafe upstairs where you can smoke Shisha. The rooms are spacious and very clean. We have enjoyed our stay here.

Very good dinner and breakfast (both were included in the reservation our tour agency made). Help front desk staff was willing to look for plug adaptor and help us find an ATM. Very clean. Shower had fancy heads, toilet at bidet, wifi was included, convenient location downtown easy to walk around. Would stay her again.

Stayed here on a 2 day business trip. The hotel is clean and centrally situated, although the large rooms and reception area look a bit tired and old. The best thing about it is the wonderful staff who are welcoming and go out of their way to take care of guests' needs, which in my case was a late night...

Best Hotel in Anchorage. Absolutely stunning views. On the top floor is their restaurant Crows Nest. The food is seasonal and fresh! There isn't anything subpar on the menu!!!! The bisque and snow crab are to die for!

We stayed in this hotel for 2 nights. The staff, especially the "captain" was very friendly, welcoming and knowledgable. Rooms are spacey & clean, so is the bathroom. The view wasn't amazing (from our room we were overlooking an abandoned, sandy playground; no idea if other rooms offer better views), but the ambiance of the hotel made up for that....
