We were here for just one night as part of our package to Petra. Everything was what was expected. The Staff was friendly, the Rooms adequate and clean. Breakfast in the morning was very good. They had a very nice pool, unfortunately we didn't have time to use it. Location in downtown Aqaba was ideal for the short stay we...

Stayed here for one night as part of my tour package to Petra. Arrived around 5pm and was greeted by friendly staff. Room was a little smaller than expected but clean and bright, overlooking the city and a bit of the sea. Walking distance to local beach area (not ideal for tourist to swim) and I understand there is shuffle...

The staff was nice and helpful. The room was very basic with hard beds - and not very clean. We were not able to get hot showers after a very long day in the desert. The internet was very weak and clunky. Food was OK at dinner, poor breakfast. If you want a basic budget option, it would be acceptable...

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!
