After hiking up from Petra, we were happy to reach the air conditioning with good toilets. The staff were friendly and provided a very good lunch at the Guest House for our group of 50. The rooms looked appealing from the outside and you can't get closer to Petra!

Surrounded by outstanding mountains, beautiful scenery and the location not far away from the Petra attractions. Nice service at the hotel, you can request many kinds of pillow as you wish. The food was excellent and kind staffs.

It was a standard good hotel. But I highly recommend for the location. I loved the convenience of walking to and from the Petra site. With all the heat I never imagined how chilly the pool could be, it was a deep dive and a lesson learned. Truly refreshing! Love the sunrise and sunset too One of the most unforgettable...

We chose this hotel because of it's proximity to the Petra site. Knowing ourselves we knew we would probably be in the site until they closed the gates at night & waiting to get in there first thing in the morning. All of which was true! (Petra is incredible) The hotel location is excellent. It is quite & the service...

Pros: You can't get any closer to Petra if you tried, walk out the front of the hotel, you are right on the road to the Siq. There is even a bar that is houses in an old carved out Nabean house. Great breakfast, great dinner. Nearby shopping arcade. Everything is in walking distance. Cons: Rooms are a little dated....

Like many people have said, you only stay in this hotel for one reason; because its close to Petra. And like many people have said, you can't get closer to the entrance. (Don't be fooled by "entrance" - its still a fair walk until you get to the Siq and then more until the Treasury, but its a beautiful walk)...

I agree with other comments - the location is great. When I first got there, I thought the location wasn't that big a deal. The other hotels in Wadi Musa aren't that much further away. But after a day at the Petra site and the long walk back out, I was really happy not to have to walk even 10...

Food, room and facilities were all acceptable, but uninspiring. Location, right by the entrance to Petra, was perfect. The staff were friendly and welcoming, yet the hotel did not quite come up to CP standards.

Stayed here whilst visiting Petra. The hotel is literally a 45 second walk to entrance of petra visitors. Hotel is a little dated, but you're paying for the location rather than how good hotel is and what you can do at the hotel. I would say all the hotel amenities are a bonus as most of the time/ day will...
