First time to Petra - accommodation query

We are beginnig to plan our very last minute break to Petra and would appreciate some advice on where to stay...

We plan to see the ruins, petra by night etc....but also want to experience the town centre restaurants and local life...

Can you recommend an area or indeed hotels that would be a good place for a non-driving couple to base themselves for a 5 day trip? - all budgets welcome.

Many thanks in advance for your help and advice!

Try the Petra Moon, quite close to the entrance to the site.

website is www.petramoonhotel.com

You also have the Silk Road Hotel email at petrasilkroad@hotmail.com

Both are hotels somewhere between two and three stars.

La Maison, 3 (small?) stars, is also quite close. Renovated recently.

I don't know "La Maison". Where is it? Do you know the name of the family that runs it (most of the hotels in Petra are run by members of one of the different tribes there)

You can actually find it in Tripadvisor. When you leave Petra, you go left past the parking lot and then right.. I think that it was taken over by al-Dakkak company this year or last year.

HI.. just got back from Jordan yesterday!

We stayed at a Bedouin Camp by Little Petra called 'Seven Wonders Bedouin Camp' which was magical. The owners also run a hotel in Petra called 'Rocky Mountain Hotel'. Perhaps you could do both. They also arranged our transportation from Amman airport (2/3 hour drive), transfer to and from campsite to Petra site, arranged horse riding/trekking through the mountains to the Monastery and transportation to Dead Sea via Kings Highway!
