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.

... religious than others. We noticed a HUGE police presence on the roads. We were stopped a couple of times so they could check Shardi's licence and check out the contents in the car. A couple of them laughed and looked so cute with a huge smile as Shardi explained he had a couple of their colleagues in the car. Felt a bit confronting at one checkpoint with a police officer standing on the back of the ute holding a big machine gun. But so far we haven't ...
... the hike into Petra at 6am. Zuhair wanted us to be amongst the first to get there. Ta Da!! 6am we walked down to the ticket office. No one there! Had to wait about twenty minutes for them to arrive. It was freezing. It was raining. We were all thinking this is crazy! There was no one around at all. We started on the walk and it's quite a way down a long path. The Nabateans who constructed the site were very clever with their water systems and you can ...
... works.With the rides declined we started our meander down and immediately got a glimpse at what was to come with numerous caves, tombs and fašades carved into the sandstone about us, Mohammed gave us descriptions of what each of these were and then an understanding of what the carvings meant.At the bottom of the hill we came to the entrance of the Siq which is the narrow gorge that most would have seen photos from, the entrance is marked by the remains of a Roman arch ...
