I had stayed at this hotel for one night only - arriving late at night from the Queen Alia International Airport and departing soon after breakfast for a tour of Jerash, Ajloun, Salt & Jordan Valley before heading to the Dead Sea for a night's stay. So my main reasons for choosing this hotel was simply because I needed a relatively cheap place for a sleepover (by comparison to other similar hotels in Amman) & because it's quite new.
As it was just a short overnight stay, I didn't find any negatives about the hotel. The positive sides are as follows:
+ the hotel is new, the check-in was smooth, the room is good and spacious enough, LCD TV, small sofa, etc.
+ internet is free
+ the breakfast spread was somewhat limited (salads, fruits, breads and pastries, cereals, and some local breakfast dish) but it was not bad.
+ breakfast area (oopen cafe) is spacious, thus you don't actually have to almost literally sit by other people's side like in some other hotels.
+ location is just across the road from Amman Mall.
One note however, I booked the room through Ibis' website a few days before the stay and paid in Jordanian Dinar. At the hotel reception however, I saw the published rates as slightly lower than the ones quoted on the website. Not sure if this is always the case - it's possibly due to the fluctuation in exchange rate.
Overall, I'd probably stay here again if I'm here on a short stopover in Amman.
