The people were extremely nice, welcoming and helpful. We felt well cared for. The terrace was cosy and had a beautiful view and one can find there tea and coffee at any time of the day. The breakfast and dinner were delicious.
It is obviously a budget hotel with dated furniture and small bathrooms, you have to pay an extra for turning the AC on, etc. It is also quite far from the Petra's visitors center and the restaurants areas (don't let google maps fool you, the location you found there is completely inaccurate).
I was really in doubt about what rating to give this hotel. And the people there deserve nothing less than a very good rating.
All in all we had a pleasant experience and would recommend this hotel to budget conscious travelers looking more for the local feeling and less for fancy comfort.

You've seen Petra; forever captured as the crypt of the Holy Grail and found by Indiana Jones. Well the movie can't do justice to the scale of the place in person. The famous image comes into view after the 2 km walk throughout the narrow "Siq" and ...
... efforts. Holly and I used to love the Movenpick operated Marché in Toronto, which was a very cool market environment with both retail food markets and a restaurant-like experience.
We met our guides in the lobby at 8AM for the walking trip into Petra, which I must admit, totally exceeded my expectations. We drew Ahmed, who is an archeologist, but had a bit too stern of an attitude. A few were scolded for not paying attention to his talk.......he told us to "concentrate". He ...
... where we again went through security and had our retinas scanned. Our Jordanian guide, tour bus, and police escort were waiting for us, and we next drove through the Jordanian port city of Aqaba. This is the area where Lehi and his family camped for a time. Pretty barren.
Our guide, George, explained that Aqaba has a special economic system of low taxes and less regulation than the rest of the country because it's Jordan's only port and such an important source of business ...
