Stayed here 1 night to check Aqaba out. The hotel is well located, but overpriced for what it was given other budget hotels in Jordan. Perhaps that is because Aqaba itself is pricey? Not sure. All in all, it seemed more like a 2 star than a 3. The price of laundry is ridiculously expensive, so avoid that at all... More

Breakfast was simple but all right and we could start a little earlier since we had to leave so early. Staff was very friendly and... More

On the negative side it doesn't look like much from the outside (or the inside), the lady at reception was not very friendly and breakfast was very basic. The bathroom door handle and one of the lights were broken and water pressure was poor. On the good... More

Good budget hotel in a very central location - perfect as a base for diving of quick stop off. Close to nice restaurants, tidy and clean with spacious rooms. Attentive staff. Not much more else to say!

We've spent about 10 nights in Al-Qidra and perhaps we had bad luck to have the week included where there was the Jordanian Holiday. Rooms (3/5): We had a double in the 3rd floor which was alright. We had warm water and a small balkony. The bathroom was decent. The beds were actually quite simple. Nothing to sleep every night... More
