Good but too far from Old Petra
The Place is Nice. My room seemed like a tent in a bedouin campment. But it’s too far from Old Petra Archeological site (around 4km or 3 miles or a half and hour uphill hike). So on top of the JD 26 rate for a single room you have do add Jd 5 to go to the hotel and back (if you haggle HARD with the taxi driver) to leave your luggage at the hotel (the main trail in Petra is 8km/6 mikes return, so you don’t need any extra luggage in you, believe me. And there’s ABSOLUTELY NO LEFT LUGGAGE IN PETRA’S OLD TOWN) and JD5 more when you leave. JD 10 is a meal in a restaurant! So next time I come to Petra, I would not come back this hotel but rather prefer to stay somewhere closer to the Old Town. They do have a complimentary shuttle (read a 5 seat car). it goes to Petra at 7:30 and 8:30am but on the way back the only time is at 4pm, which is too early to leave the site, even in winter when the sun sets around 5:30pm.
