Right next to the entrance to Petra, this hotel has chalet style rooms set on a hillside overlooking Wadi Musa. Our room was huge and well appointed, the staff were lovely, the food was good and plentiful (both breakfast and dinner are buffet style). We enjoyed a drink in the Cave Bar after a hard day’s walking in Petra. Breakfast is served from 6am, and that along with the proximity to the entrance to Petra meant that we could get into the site before the crowds - an amazing experience!
Petra Guest House must have been renovated or rebuilt recently, because the descriptions in the terrible reviews don't match our experience. This hotel was one of the most modern of all that we stayed at on our group pilgrimage to Israel and Jordan. The rooms were clean and modern. We didn't have a choice of beds because of the group deal. The two beds were wider than twins, but a little narrower than double -- OK for two small-to-average people. The buffet was excellent with a wide range of selections -- among the best that we experienced on the trip. Meals were included in our group package. The staff was especially helpful when two members of the group failed to return from their extended hike up the mountain to the monastery. Our guide was called promptly and a search…
Location is the prime quality and view. It’s at the entrance to the Petra complex. Stay two nights to get the best use of time. Petra is a complex and not just the bit you saw on Indiana Jones or Transformer. That’s the bit for the Instagram people. From the hotel walk down to where people take the Instagram photo’s, forget the horses and carts at the entrance. Carry on past the The Treasury until you reach the open area beyond and take a two hour donkey ride to see the real Petra beyond! If you go after 12 you may get to take the donkey back to their village and then they will drop you off by truck back at the hotel. Most people just get to the Treasury and on foot to go beyond is a trek. Donkey is the way to go but pay for the full trip!
After an extensive trek throughout the pink city, we repaired to the guest house bar for restorative fodder and a crisp ale. Zeyad our waiter was excellent and I can't rate highly enough the ambience and service of the world's oldest bar! An absolute must for folk visiting.
Petra Guest House is a nice place. The staff are welcoming and the service is very professionnal. The food could be much better, the quality seems there but its a bit "average". The morning buffet offers a large choice and the evening buffet is convenient because it is fast, but it is not highly gastronomique. Rooms are clean and well organised, bathroom could be slightly cleaner and the one we had probably needed a little refreshing. The location is calm and silent and we really loved the bar in the nabatean tomb. Globaly a positive experience with a good team taking care of us.
