TravelPod Member ReviewsKings Paget Hotel Middlesex
This is a 4 star hotel built down a cliffside opposite the red rocks of Petra. The view is magnificent and the rooms very comfortable. It also has Internet acces by WiFi in the lobby for only $5 for your entire stay. Thoe only drawback is that we have half board. The buffet dinner last night was very ordinary and the breakfast was OK but nothing special.

... it a penny whistle) and an instrument which was described as of the violin family but with 3 of the strings missing!! About 15 minutes of dis-chord that is associated with the harmonics and root of ALL Arabian music, Mr Violin man decided that what really would be a crowd pleaser would be to enchant us with his limited vocal range. (more sarcasm?) I’m sure our other two Jordanian hosts thought our one stringed violist playing vocalist was on to a winner but to the ...
... huge amounts of people traversing the country (the silk route) to trade their wares, in particular Indian spices, silks, ivory, and the spice Frankincense as this was used somehow in association with the Pagan religion which was strong at the time. The Nabateans settled and built Petra, charging people huge taxes to enter in order to 'refuel' their camels and attend to other needs. They became extremely wealthy from this and as such Petra grew to a large ...
... shelter structures still intact. We then visited Moses Spring where Moses struck the rocks and water sprung forth from the ground while during the exodus from Egypt. The Rock and spring are now in a building and it was amazing to find this spring still working thousands of years later. The spring was the actual water source for the Nabatean people in Petra from which they piped the water several kilometres to the ...
