Great place and exactly what we needed. All staff were so friendly and helpful, they helped us with our directions to different sites and went above what was expected. Rooms were very basic and shared bathrooms but only between 2 rooms, rooms were roomy enough and airy and not too warm :) we are staying 3 times throughout our trip... More

Budget hotel in a good location in Madaba. The owner was very pleasant. The room and bathroom were in need of a bit of TLC but was suitable for purpose and very reasonably priced. Breakfast was also included.

I arrived in Madaba without an idea of where to stay and then came upon the Queen Ayola Hotel. And boy am I glad I did! For 10 JD this place cannot be beat in Madaba.

Located in the center of Madaba. It is a nice, simple hotel - fair to the price. Staff is sweet and they speak English. The rooms are fine - towels and bedsheets, but not the cleanest room I've been in ;). However, the atmosphere is fine and they serve breakfast - which is hard to find during Ramadan. Good place...

It was nice hotel and really nice staff at the hotel. Location was perfect, near to all of interest there. The room was spacious, with balcony, but there I would like to have chairs so I could sit there and look at the life on the street. However, perhaps it would be carrying out some renovation, especially in the bathroom.... More

A little old and not very clean but you get what you pay for. Good place to stop but must not be too picky. In the middle of the night, we were woken up by food and cigarette smells from the downstairs restaurant. We had a shared bathroom which was a bit cold and small but it is ok for... More

First of all, the staff at the hotel is very friendly and accommodating; they deserve a 5-star rating. The location is good, and the price too. However, we knew the breakfast was going to be basic and we had nothing against that, but once we had finished eating our food and gave the dishes to the staff (on the counter... More

“The hotel is very close to the mosque. You will be woken up at 4.30am with the morning prayers called through the extremely loud, and rather close loudspeakers. The glass in the windows of the first floor rooms were frosted so you could not see out.”
