The hotel is just across the road from the Roman Theatre, very near the Citadel, and next to the heart of downtown Amman. The location could not be better.
But on top of this, the place has a great vibe. At any given time in the foyer area, a whole range of travellers will be sitting there discussing their stories, waiting for a tour, or possibly even booking one. It gives the place a real energy.
Additionally, it offers free twice daily walking tours, These are run by Mohamed Ezzet, who is an Amman local, and are great value. He takes you to interesting shops, houses, streets, etc.and has much to say about his city, that he loves. I can thoroughly recommend taking one.
Also, if you need to book a tour, see Marwan at the tour desk. He can book almost anything for you, and I found that his prices were very reasonable. I organised a couple of car/driver hires through Marwan, and they were great value. Marwan also checked with me that everything was done to my liking.
The rooms were quite basic; nothing pretentious, however the beds were clean and comfortable and the air conditioning kept things at a good temperature. From my perspective, they were perfiectly adequate.
I couldn't imagine going to Amman and staying anywhere else. Make this your Amman destination
