Well let me start by saying that this is not the Marriott but it's about one-tenth the price. And the accommodations are completely acceptable. The thing that makes this such a nice place to stay is that the owner is a lot of fun to chat with. Speaks very good English which is helpful to Americans but I understand he also speaks perfect German. Of course that's not helpful to Americans. And his staff, especially Sharif, are really Pleasant people. We enjoyed our stay very much. And the last thing I would add is it is very well located in the "city center". Lots of restaurants to choose from including the one right next to the hotel. We got our breakfast there each day and it is something to experience because it is such a local thing. Sherif literally gets up to make it for you whenever you need to head to Petra. And dinner includes the appetizers. We had tasty Jordanian food there. Two thumbs up from a guy that normally stays at a Marriott.…
The Hotel met all my expectations and what was best of all was that it is situated very close to anything you may need within the City Center. The Staff was extremely nice and helpful and I would definitely recommend it to anyone who is looking for a comfy place to stay in the area.
I stayed here 2 nights while visiting the archeological site. Friendly service by the manager, staff was friendly and understood + spoke English. room was clean and functional. Only minor thing was the somewhat musty odor in the shower. Breakfast was great and I can recommend their lunch package!
We stayed here recently. The hotel is nicely decorated. The rooms and big and clean. The owner is very friendly and nice. The price is really good- we payed 40$ for triple room! The position of the hotel is great, close to restaurants and shops. The breakfast is good too.
This is my 2nd trip to Jordan (and to Petra) after a gap of 7 years, and I decided to stay at the same place that I stayed the last time. I must say, Al-Rashid hotel still provides the same excellent service that I received last time. Staffs at the hotel are very friendly (thank you Sharif for all your help). William at the reception was such a gentleman and helped us in so many ways. I was sad to hear that their excellent chef Mohammed have left the hotel, but fear not, he is working in the next door restaurant where we eat twice and was simply blown away by the quality of the food. Thank you all for making our stay an excellent one.
I liked staying here, my room was clean and the price was really good when you consider that things are really expensive in Petra. The receptionist even minded my luggage on my final day. Also, lots of nice great restaurants nearby
We booked this hotel as it was such good value and we were not disappointed. It took a while to find somewhere to park as the streets outside are so busy, and once we had arrived we had to wait a while to get any service from the staff, but after this it was plain sailing. Rooms was decent size, comfortable bed and decent showers. Couldn't fault it. Next to a decent restaurant too.
We've stayed here for 1 night, before visiting Petra. Location is very good - in the center of Wadi Musa (lots of restaurants and grocery stores nearby) and close to Petra. Rooms are quite small, with basic equipment, but it was enough for such a short stay. We liked the breakfast too.
Check in was great. Arrived at 12.30 and left our luggage to dash to Petra. Once back at the hotel we were offered a choice of rooms. Rooms are quite small, however we fitted all of our stuff in. No secure safety box to put items in. Separate shower that was great. Room was warm and we both slept well. We had our evening meal in the attached restaurant which offered a 10% discount on the meal, free coffee and desert. The food was amazing. In fact it was so busy people were turned away. Quite a long walk from the entrance to Petra, took us 25 minutes, apparently a taxi would cost between 3-5 J.D. Enjoyed this hotel. the staff were great.
We booked by phone for 2 nights with someone whom we thought was the owner. We said we would come and drop our bags in the hotel before starting our first day in Petra, which we did. The person who received us was nice, but never told us that he was the restaurant manager, from next door, and not the owner. When we came back after our first day in Petra to see our rooms, no one knew who we were, no one knew about our booking, and no one knew where our luggage was (and the person who had spoken to us was not there). Two clueless staff members were trying to help, but it was clear they looked like a hotel, but had no idea about their bookings, or anything professional. We were finally given 2 rooms (180 JOD, so more than 200 euros), and everything was broken or put together badly. Broken toilet seat, broken handles, live wires everywhere, old smelly bedlinen, etc. We asked if they could at least fix the toilet seat to the toilet and when we came downstairs to speak to the manager, who had arrived, he asked the restaurant owner who we were. They started an argument (I understood the manager asked in arabic why we were being difficult) and at no stage did he welcome us, say sorry or speak to us. When we left after just one night he didn't even say goodbye. During the night, a boiler sounding like a jumbo jet started every 10 minutes. The street is noisy (but it is in the center). We stayed in Jordan 12 days, and went in many types of hotels: guest houses, 1 star hotels and camps and all were better than this. After one night, we left for the next door guest house, which was more basic but here the owner and atmosphere were fantastic! Petra is so touristy that hotels like that one gets away with murder! If I had paid a cheap youth hostel rate, maybe, but not for 180 JOD. Located in the center of Petra, so good for restaurants, but up a very long hill for the visitor center, and no parking.…
