A cute place run by very warm and hospitable people. They served a great dinner with meatballs, potatoes and chicken along with the other staple food of bread, rice, salad, yoghurt and more things that I cannot remember! The dining area is a great place to talk to the people at Dana hotel and other travelers. I remember sitting on...

My husband and I stayed here one night in December before we hiked the Wadi Dana to the Feynan Ecolodge. We paid 20 JD for one night in a room with private bathroom and were pleasantly surprised by the quality and cleanliness of the room. Suleiman asked if we wanted dinner and we agreed. The food we ate there was...

Dana is a small village by the Dana Nature Reserve. The Dana Hotel is perfect for a stay in this village with friendly owners who can't do enough to help you, they even whip up a delicious evening meal which you can eat in the nice shared area. Would definitely recommend.

A simple, clean and comfortable hotel in the small village of Dana. The staff were very welcoming The room we stayed in was a renovated house. An adequate en-suite was provided. All meals were in the communal dining room. They were wholesome, traditional and tasty with a limited choice. A welcome drink of sage tea was given on arrival. Wi...

We stayed one evening in Dana Village as part of a bicycle trip I did with Terhaal Adventures. The hotel was basic, comfortable, clean, but quite fascinating as well. The village location is situated on the edge of a plateau overlooking the impressive Wadi Dana Reserve. Have a walk around in the morning, and you'll discover the local people are...

I considered rating "very good" and even "excellent", but decided that would raise expectations unrealistically. The whole setup (room, beds, bathroom, dining) is fairly primitive, which is normal, considering its isolated location. Our room was a few blocks away from the hotel and had 2 single beds ; it looks like all other furniture (bedside table and small table) is...

I stayed there for two nights in this wonderful, quiet hotel with friendly and helpful people. Hiking is organized from there. It is very good to see the flowers and animals in Dana. They have good connections to all the other cities and hotels

Dana is nice little town and Wadi Dana is stunning. The town is mostly peaceful but has occasionally has loud roosters, dogs and people (and the gaudy Dana Tower Hotel and its neon sign don't help). Dana Hotel does a very good job considering the conditions and facilities in Dana and it is a very friendly place and a good...

We had one night in Dana hotel and it was good. It is very back with only beds in the rooms and a shared bathroom but for the price, and roof terrace it is well worth it! The volunteer on reception was slightly moody which meant I spent most of that evening worrying she was annoyed with us but apart...

We arrived at Dana late, in the dark, missed the turning and ended up in someone's garden! But after that it was bliss! Our room had its own terrace overlooking the village and gorge. Clean, quiet and comfy. We trotted across the square to the main part - the rooms are renovated village houses. There was a cool rooftop terrace...
