Paying 22 JD for a night's accommodation, we found Saba'a Hotel fantastic value and a quality place to stay during our time in Petra. The hotel is a quick 2 minute walk from the bus station, surrounded by heaps of restaurants and shops and roughly 20 minutes walk from the Petra entrance gate. Upon arrival we were greeted by a lovely English woman (who turned out to be Gail's mother - Gail being the owner) and were offered tea and polite conversation. We stayed in a twin room on the ground floor with an en-suite bathroom. The room was very clean and tidy, towels were provided and we could just pick up the wifi connection from the lobby. The room was quite warm at night but the fan proved a valuable asset.
As for the service, Gail was extremely hospitable offering loads of information and advice for our trip through Petra. Her husband was also kind enough to drive us down for free to the entrance gate to save us walking. The breakfast provided was simple but adequate with hard-boiled eggs, cheese, pita bread, juice and of course coffee & tea available from 6.30am.
Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Saba'a and would definitely recommend it for other travelers to Petra. It was a little bit of a hike to the front entrance but for the price - I'm not complaining too much. Good luck and have fun!
