Saint John Hotel is a family-run eco-friendly 3 star hotel located on the top heart of Madaba city, the Acropolis, in the vicinity of the Pilgrimage Site - Shrine of The Beheading of The Saint John The Baptist and of Ottoman era Saraya Building. This unique place gives the hotel and our restaurant an amazing 360 degree view of the whole city. We made our hotel in a way to entice more visitors to our beloved city and to make their stay not only comfy but also full of pleasant and unforgettable memories. For that same reason, we used the top rated ecofriendly items in our hotel, starting from the very expensive memory foam mattresses, ACs, Free (complementary) Minibars, exterior & interior painting and kneaded products, solar system to bathroom fixtures.

Our family had a wonderful memorable stay at the Saint John Hotel. The hotel is located in a quiet part of Madaba - close walking distance to all the best tourist sites and restaurants, but on a very quiet part of the street. The only noise we had was the beautiful calls to prayer from the mosque and the charming bells from the nearby church. We had two rooms on the second floor - both were quiet, clean, with plenty of space, comfortable beds, fridges, satellite tv, and wi-fi. Most of the staff spoke perfect English. Omar went above and beyond making us feel like we were at home - helping us out with anything and everything we could need, answering questions, giving us advice, just checking to make sure we were having a great time in Madaba. The Restaurant and Sky Bar upstair is fantastic. We had a delicious dinner there, and the excellent free breakfast was served there. Thank you, Omar, and thank you Saint John Hotel!…

We selected Saint John Hotel based on its location and affordability, but it turned out to be so much more than that!! The facilities were incredibly comfortable and clean, but the staff really made our stay feel like we were at a 5 star hotel! From the moment we walked in, the desk staff were welcoming and friendly. I emailed them prior to our stay saying we would appreciate assistance arranging a COVID test in Madaba for our upcoming international flight. As soon as we checked in, they sprung into the details of the arrangements that had been made on our behalf...I didn't even have to mention it! They had set us up with a nearby lab and a contact person (no scheduled time so we could go at our convenience)... they drew us a map.... and we set out on foot because it was so close to the hotel and nearby attractions that we planned to visit after our test. The lab staff also were incredible and had our printed results available exactly on time as arranged. We were afraid we'd spend half our day navigating this test instead of seeing the magnificent sights of Madaba, but thanks to the staff at Saint John Hotel, the experience was flawless and took mere minutes! The terrace at Saint John was a welcome bonus and a great place to cozy up at night after the COVID curfews went into effect. The views both by day and night were magnificent and the staff were kind enough to make us tea in the evening. The included breakfast was delicious and various. Again, the staff greatly enhanced our experience by walking us through each individual item so we knew what everything was and ensuring we had an opportunity to try all of the local specialties. The location was also just as perfect as we hoped. We had a rental car, but were able to park it for free and never used it again until we left Madaba. Thanks to the central location of the hotel, we were within walking distance of all the areas of interest. We wouldn't stay anywhere else in Madaba!!…

Very pleasant stay and Omar made it his duty to make us feel at home. We had a great diner on the upper floor where we had a nice view and enjoyed a breeze of wind. It is close to most of the things to see and do. A visit to Mount Nebu is easily organized

This is a wonderful hotel. Everyone who works there is warm and welcoming. Nothing was too much trouble, everyone really went out of their way to make us feel at home. The memory foam beds were beyond comfortable and everything was really clean. The breakfast buffet was delicious and generous. The restaurant and Skybar was also really nice to hang out in (excellent view) and the food and service there were excellent. The hotel's location is perfect for doing a walking tour of Madaba, with most of the sights and really good eateries and shops nearby. A fantastic stay.

Stayed here for 3 nights and can honestly say I was happy with my time here. Friendly staff, talkative and very helpful l, giving advice on where to go in Madaba, even the owner was chipping in and even recommended a hotel for us to stay in near the Dead Sea which was our next stop. Highly recommended.
