TravelPod Member ReviewsEdom Hotel Petra Wadi Musa
The hotel was fine... a bland modern place with a maze of corridors downstairs and a slightly unfinished feel on the accommodation floors. The setting was perfect, just a few hundred metres from the entrance to the Petra world heritage site. It's on a side street so very quiet, but with plenty of restaurants just steps away. My only minor quibble about the hotel would be the showers, but I don't expect much water pressure in the desert.

... from the Rocky Mountain Hotel said you can walk around the site in 15 minutes.
Although our Bedouin host advised us that Little Petra is only a 20 minute walk he would not recommend walking in this heat. The temperature was 35°C+ and the return journey is up hill.

And then, as we rounded a final bend, through a narrow split, we ...
After drinking tea and eating breakfast at a campfire with our Bewoin Hosts we ventured into Petra and a day amongst the monuments in the Petra Archeological Site. It is a 20 km walk from the visitor centre to the Monastery at the back entrance to the site so we were exhausted by the time we exited the visitors centre at 6:30 pm. The walk included 800 steps up to the Monastery and the 800 steps down. The walk through the narrow ...
... the authorities are trying to eradicate it, whilst such tourists continue to supply the demand for rides, then these poor donkeys will continue to suffer. We continued on our way, admiring the wonderful stones and rock structures including an amphitheatre, the city is so vast, we meandered for a couple of hours at least just looking in wonder at all the wonder. As we made our way further into the complex, the walking turned to climbing up 900 ...
... standing near us when the male asked his corpulent female friend what she thought. Her reaction "I feel a little jipped, sure it is high but I have seen better".Really you have seen better?? you have stood looking over 2500 years of historic civilisation before, have you, you imbecile. Maybe if you actually achieved something by walking up rather than subjecting a poor mule to you girth you wouldn't feel so jipped! Rant over.
