The room I got is large & clean with balcony over looks the pool, but with poor maintenance since water was running in the toilet, the flushing system is needs mussels to be operated, buffet breakfast is moderate but is oky for 3 stars hotel.

Room Tip: Rooms in the ground floor got wireless internet connection while it's not the case in the higher...

This is an excellent mid-range choice in center in Aqaba. Room in perfect nick, seemed brand new. Spacious, clean, bright,bath new, entirely pleasant. View was of main street, and window blocked all noise. Flat screen TV. Standard and deluxe rooms, from $52 usd equivalent. Asked and received slight discount. Located right next door to Hilton, central location. This one must have been renovated recently. Looked at everything nearby in this price range and Mina clearly the best. Only drawback is no internet in room; lobby only.

Room Tip: street view, or water view

Our non-smoking room on the 7th floor was very good, recently refurbished (not like those on the 4th floor which were not so nice). We had a good flat screen TV (channel in Spanish, French, German and arabic), frigobar, a very nice bathroom and a good view of the city. Supper served on the 8th floor was "reasonable": soup, bread, main course of fish or chicken with a baked potatoe, and a sweet ricotta cake desert. No beverages or glasses on table, though when we asked for a bottle of water we got one 1.5 lt. bottle (2 dinars = 2 Euro).
Breakfast on the pool-level (floor -1) was good: coffee, tea, boiled eggs, variety of hummus, cream cheese, croissants, loaves, jam, honey, tomatos, cucumbers, olives. A good Arab breakfast and very helpful waiters.
Worth its value and conveniently located in downtown Aqaba.

Room Tip: Non smoking 7th floor rooms only (the others reek of tobacco smell and have old carpets that make th...

We liked the hotel, in general. Helpful staff, clean pool (but cold in November), typical Arab breakfast (breads and spreads, some veggies, meats, boiled eggs and drinks). The room was very big, and the bedding was clean. The furnishings were older, but who cares... We got there in time to get a sea view room, which was great. The shower was strong and hot. The floors and the rest wasn't very clean, which is always gross to us... but it was livable. The kitchen even gave us hot water when we left for our thermos. The price was OK, tho. Good luck!

Room Tip: 501 was great, faced the sea, but on Thursday night was a little noisy from local bars...

I'd be happy to write a review on the Mina Hotel, which we had a great experience with - but we need the name changed first (or this name removed and start a fresh).
