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.

... its own regardless of the majesty of the main Petra site. There are many tombs and carvings here, just not on the grand scale that awaits at the main Petra site. After this visit we arrived at our hotel. All the girls had booked in for a Turkish bath so we headed off there. We had the steam room first. If you stood up your head got hot but not much else.

... we’ve seen, Petra is right up there. Petra - meaning stone in Greek - is the jewel in Jordan’s crown and most worthy of all the publicity it gets. We so enjoyed our two days trekking round the site. The sheer scale. The colours of the rocks changing from deep terracotta to shades of bright pink as the day progressed and the light or the weather changed. Ancient history set in the most wonderful landscape. Think Indiana Jones, think ...
... It's neat to see the fields with crops growing and imagine armies coming up towards this castle. Safety is not a huge concern here, we could walk along ledges with huge drops and no railings. We could go down into rooms and through tunnels to look out little window slits. It feels neat to think of people living here in the old, old, olden days.
Onwards towards Petra with many stops to look out over the valley. We could see Bedouin families in ...
... the Treasury and a few other buildings it was amazing to see that it actually covers an area about 65sqkm.
Having been given a run down we were now aware that we had a couple of very busy days ahead of us, Mohammed as if reading our minds took us to an amazing cafe to pick up some middle eastern energy food of falefal and shawarma. This was both ridiculously cheap and amazingly delicious. Arriving at out hotel we wolfed down our lunch and checked into our ...
