“Good value and location but too small top sheets”
Reviewed 8 December 2010

We enjoyed staying at the Canary after asking to have the dirty blankets exchanged. Tile floors, clean rooms but a few details like cleaning on the sides of the water faucet and around door frames and electric switches could be improved.
Local friends who visited us shortly in the hotel lobby were impressed by the comparitively low prices.
If you turn left in the street outside and then turn right below the wall of the opposite school and then left in front of the modern looking minaret you can walk along a pleasant street all the way down to the Place de Paris (10 - 15 minutes from the Canary) . On your way there there are many shops selling bread, fruit, small minimarkets but also very posh shops selling clothes, Belgian chocolate etc and around Place de Paris there are fast food places, a fine supermarket and the restaurant Café de Paris where we had dinner twice and they have a combined book store and in the restaurant shelves with used books that you can swop with your own books. The street going down there has the feeling of a town within the street chaos of Amman where even the taxi drivers have a hard time to find their way.

Rooms were clean, and bed was actually quite comfortable. However, ours had one of those non-fitted sheets that always comes off while sleeping. You do have to tell the staff to turn the heater in the room on, as it was quite cold the day we arrived. Only one towel for the bathroom? Staff overall were friendly and accomodating, and served a simple but pleasant breakfast. They do actually have a canary that sings throughout the day. Location was nice if you like it quiet, and was easy to grab a taxi nearby to go downtown (which only costs about 1JD).

$24 a double for a real nice room , in Jordan's Capital is difficult to find.. We found the staff here exceptional...we enjoyed their food [not fancy] ...they arrange lots of trips etc reliably... a few minutes walk to the long distance bus terminal is a bonus..they sell reasonably priced icy cold beer and allow you to consume in their comfy lounge areas. All in all, a lovely place to stay. {and they accept visa and mastercard ] !!!

Reviewed 13 September 2009

I booked this hotel because I thought we would be taking the Jett bus from Petra and arriving at the Abdali bus station. The Canary is in the general area of the bus station. We changed our plans and arrived by private car, instead, so the location became inconvenient. It is in a quiet residential area, with nothing else around, and difficult to find. However, we liked our room, which was on the first floor, to our delight! It was a large room, sparsely furnished, but OK. It was lit by a single bulb hanging from the ceiling, but it turned out to be fine to read by. Dinner was mediocre, but there was nowhere else to eat. Breakfast was simple, but quiet adequate, and individually served. There is a large public area near the dining room with a TV and a computer, and we enjoyed mingling with the other guests. Staff was very friendly and helpful.

I have spent 2 nights in this hotel 26th July, near from the centrals place of Amman, practical, but also quiet, the clean range was very good, also the stuff was very kind and helpful either in give all the information that I need (and it was a lot) or by the gentle treatment in A nice way to arrive and to meet Jordan.

The price was very good also they have simple but wonderful garden where you can take nice breakfast.

Reviewed 22 August 2009

I've booked for 2 nights.
First they gave me a room with 4 beds, although I've booked a single room.
The room was not cleaned, there was hair and dust on the tiles that were on the floor of the room.
I've asked them for another room since this one was not cleaned.
The other room they gave me, was the same, and also have had ants that gathered around a piece of food that was laying on the floor.
Then, they've told me to wait. They've cleaned the rooms. Based on the smell, I would say that they use some heavy chemicals. It seems that they do not use vacuum cleaners at all.
When I've "moved-in" to the 1st room, I've started looking at the beds. They have had some dirty blankets, and when I've taken the blanket off, I've seen dark hair on the pillow.
I've inspected all 4 beds, and all pillows have had dark hair on them.
Conclusion: they do not change sheets ...

I couldn't stay there. I've changed the hotel the same night. I've payed a little bit more, but enjoyed my stay in Amman.

Hotel staff was incredibly helpful, especially in giving directions to different places around town. Breakfast (which was no-frills but good enough) is included in the price of the room, which wasn't too much. Rooms aren't necessarily new and spotless, but it was a good mid-range hotel for a one-night stopover. Stayed in a triple with a spacious bathroom. Kind of hard to find though. We tried to reserve it through hostelworld.com and the staff had no clue what that was. It's much better to just email/call directly.

  • Liked — Really helpful/friendly staff
  • Disliked — Location - hard to find.
