      Right at the gate to the Petra site. So glad it was near after the strenuous steps earlier! Very quick to cancel the wifi :-(

      We loved our stay at the Movenpick hotel. The location could not have been closer to the entrance of Petra which was perfect after a a few days of wandering around the ruins of Petra!!!

      Crappy old room but stunning breakfast

      The hotel is ridiculously conveniently located, across the street from the Petra entrance. I got a cheap but old room which frankly did not compare well with other five star hotels. Still, the rest of the hotel was classy as and the breakfast rivalled that of the Crowne Plaza resort on the Dead Sea. In fact it was better, the tea selection was excellent and their bircheler (spelling) muesli was delicious.

      Historical Traveler Reviews Moevenpick Resort Petra Wadi Musa

      Bonito hotel, gran lugar, cerca de la Puerta de Petra

      from

      Bonito hotel, gran lugar, cera de la puerta de Petra. Hotel muy bonito, perfectamente situado cerca de la puerta de Petra - mucho más conveniente que estar en la zona de la ciudad principal. Habitaciones cómodas, personal atento, bonita zona de piscina. Los restaurantes son caros teniendo en cuenta la buena calidad de los restaurantes de los alrededores. El buffet es especialmente caro. Recomendamos el hotel.

      No podíamos haber hecho nada mejor que estar aquí.

      from

      Tras haber pasado las últimas noches en un sitio un poco cutre, estuvimos encantados de llegar al Moverpick. Estaba a la altura de nuestras expectativas. El personal, atento y profesional colaboró para hacer de nuestra estancia un placer. Su situación era ideal, ya que estaba muy cerca de la entrada de Petra, lo cual se agradecía tanto al iniciar el paseo por la mañana temprano, como a la vuelta, ya que después del paseo de regreso bajo el calor, resultó maravilloso no tener que subir la cuesta que había para llegar a los otros hoteles. Relajarse después en la terraza con uno de los famosos helados del hotel es imprescindible. Nuestra habitación era muy espaciosa y confortable y tenía un balcón. Era muy tranquila, ideal para poder descansar toda la noche. De hecho, tenía todo lo que un buen hotel de 5 estrellas debe ofrecer. Lo recomiendo encarecidamente.

      Gran hotel y excelente ubicación

      from

      Se trata de un gran hotel muy bien situado en el que me alojé en enero de 2006. Está muy cerca de la entrada a Petra. Las zonas comunes son espectaculares y están decoradas al estilo local. La habitación era grande y limpia. La comida era buenísima, especialmente el meze y el resto de especialidades locales que servían en la zona del bar. Los empleados eran atentos y cordiales. Prepárate para seguir unas estrictas normas de seguridad para entrar en el hotel debido a los ataques sufridos en Amman el año pasado.

      Welcome relief from the desert, wonderful stay

      from

      Stop! Don't look anyfurther, you're wasting your time. This is a great hotel and the service, beauty and the convenience factor eliminates all other entries. It's over the top. You're literally steps from the entrance gate to Petra so in the extreme heat fo the afternoon when you are climbing back up the hot and dusty path from the siq in Petra, you are so glad you picked this hotel.

      The Hotel is almost "charming" but still has a masculine feel to it. It is large but not too big. The decor is elegantly middle eastern and very beautiful. From the moment we arrived we felt welcome. The Reception was warm, polite and efficient, and although our room wasn't ready, we understood as we arrived well before noon. They stored our luggage while we spent a few hours in Petra.

      It was absolutely blazing hot while we were there (late May) and when we returned to the hotel the pool was the most welcoming thing on earth. Although quite cold! I opted to sip a nice cold beer to cool off in the shade by the pool and found a bit of heaven.

      The AC in the huge room was perfect as was the bed and decor. The breakfast was typical for the nicer hotels in Jordan, except the breakfast room here is prettier. It consists of a fantastic buffet of fresh vegetables, yoghurt, cheese, cereal, juice, bread and even American things like eggs and meat. We ate dinner at the hotel after deciding we were too tired to go out. Decided on the quiet more formal restaurant rather than the popular buffet and were treated like royalty. I can't say anything negative about the entire experience.

      I do hope that I return to Petra someday and if I do I will definelty stay here again.

      Un hotel excelente

      from

      Su situación es ideal a la hora de visitar Petra, ya que la entrada de acceso a la ciudad se encuentra a sólo unos minutos de hotel.

      Decorado al estilo oriental con mucho gusto, y con un lujo notable pero sin afectación. Habitaciones muy tranquilas y agradables.

      Trato del servicio amable

      Great hotel and excellent location

      from

      I stayed at the hotel in January 2006. It is a great hotel very close to the entrance to the site of Petra. The public areas are spectacular and decorated in local style. The room was a good size and clean. The food was great especially the meze and other local specialities available in the bar area. Staff friendly and helpful. Be prepared for stringent security measures to get into the hotel following the attacks last year in Amman.

      Great choice

      from

      Stayed at the Movenpick for two nights last week, and I loved it. The room was huge with fresh fruit, bath salts, etc on arrival, the hotel was beautiful, and the rooftop bar was the single best thing about Petra (besides the ruins)- dinner, Jordanian wine, a water pipe, and the sun setting over the hills.

      Although many Americans are nervous about visiting the Middle East, Jordan is a beautiful and friendly country, and I encourage everybody to go and see it for themselves. Everybody spoke english (95% of all street signs are in english & arabic), the scenery was magnificent, as was the weather. I'm looking forward to bringing my daughters in two years when they are 9.

      I also encourage folks to cross at the southern Eilat/Aquaba crossing. It was very fast and efficient on both the Israeli and Jordanian sides (less than 30 minutes). Coming back into Israel at the Allenby Bridge took 4 hours.

      Couldn't do better than stay here

      from

      After having stayed in a ropey place a few nights before, we were delighted to arrive at the Moverpick. It more than lived up to our expectations. The attentive and professional staff helped to make our stay very enjoyable.

      Ideally situated close to the gate for an early walk into Petra. Conversely after a hot walk back it was wonderful not to have to walk up the hill had we been staying else where. Relaxing afterwards up on the roof garden eating one of the hotels famous ice creams

      is a must.

      Our room was very spacious and comfortable with a balcony. Also very quiet for a good nights rest. In fact everything a good 5 star hotel should be. Thoroughly recommended.

      Nice hotel, great location near the Petra Gate

      from

      Very nice hotel, perfectly situated next to the gate into Petra - much more convenient than staying up in the main town area.

      Comfortable rooms, helpful staff, nice pool area.

      Restaurants are expensive considering the good quality restaurants nearby. The buffet especially is over-priced.

      Recommended hotel.

      Top Hotel

      from

      If you're going to Petra, you'd probably like to stay close to the main attraction;The Petra Siq and temples. This 5-star hotel is right at the entrance, and it doesn't get much better than that.

      The pictures on the Expedia website don't quite do it justice, for I found the room to be much nicer than I had expected. It was modern, clean and comfortable - I even had a small balcony. There was turn-down service every night (and yes, with a small chocolate placed on the pillow).The air condition worked perfectly.

      The TV set provided CNN US and BBC World, among german, french and of course arabic stations.

      The bathroom - which had a tub - was clean, modern and stacked with amenities. (In my room the drain ran too slow, and in spite of all staff efforts did not work perfectly for the rest of my stay).

      The hotel is beautiful - especially the public areas, with the magnificient atrium in the middle, but what really impressed me was the attentiveness and cordiality of the staff.Through the years I have stayed in some 5-stars hotels, and this staff gets top notch.

      To my surprise I found that this hotel does not have an ATM. There are banks \ ATMs in the nearby town,though.(20 minutes walking, 2 minutes by taxi) You will need JOD for the entrance fee for the Siq (JOD 21,-)and, if you wish - the horse \ donkey services when you go through it. (I myself walked, and would recommend just that)

      Breakfast at the hotel (which was included in my rate) is a treat. A rich selection of foods and drinks, eggs made to your liking, and a relaxed,luxorious atmosphere all over.

      I have mentioned two small minuses.However, I will gladly give this hotel a top rating, because of its high standard, its staff, and for the absolute 5 star hotel feeling you can enjoy after walking the breathtaking Petra site. This is the place to stay.

      What an exhausting day. I would suggest if you go to Jordan, you MUST see Petra. However, go in the afternoon and be sure to spend the night. You want to see this place in the cool breeze of the morning. Also, it is beautiful at night and you can buy a 2 day pass for 5 JAD more. The entry fee is 21JAD for one day and 26 for 2 days.
