The hotel is lovely, but does need some basic maintenance like bath plugs that fit and shower holders tthat work.
The main problem though for us was that the hotel was out of the main area of Wadi Musa and the shops and restaurants.It was a 5RJD taxi drive to teh Petra site.

... honour of Marcus Agrippa during the Roman period. From the very entrance as well you start to appreciate the engineering skills of the inhabitants who created a sophisticated guttering system to flow water from the dams at the top of the Siq all the way through it.Continuing through the gorge and admiring the various colours and patterns in the rock we also saw plenty more stone carvings and monuments.
Hyah, hyah, watch out a horse and carriage coming ...
We had arranged to go to Petra at 8am which seemed a bit of a mistake when we saw the number of other people at the entranceway. The large group of people soon diminished swallowed up by the sheer size of the city and it's Siq.
I had long wanted to visit Petra and felt this to be the highlight of the tour. We had a guide for two hours and he knowledgeably led us up the Siq pointing out features relating to religion and conquest of the city. This site is believed ...
