We stayed here in May and I am really happy that we decided to stay at this hotel. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the rooms were clean and comfortable. The location is also perfect for a first visit to Amman as all the major sights are within walking distance. It was really a pleasure to stay at Sydney Hotel and I hope to come back again soon!

I've been to hundreds of hotels in my travels. They run the gamut from 'crashing on someone's couch' to having someone attend to your every need, including making sure slippers are under your feet before they hit the ground.

Sydney Hotel beats both of those, and everything in between. Why? Because for the first time in the hospitality industry, you find two managers who actually care that you have a good stay AND a good time. Dia' and Tarek are very easy-going and fun-loving, they help you with anything and everything, and treat you like family. The first thing I was told when I checked-in was, 'Welcome to our family'. That's a breath of fresh air and happily different from 'A 250 USD hold will be put on your card in case of damages.'

The location is fantastic, you walk to Rainbow St or around downtown Amman for food/entertainment or order food right to your door. The internet is fast and consistent.

The rooms are very clean and simple, and hot water is basically available whenever you would need it.

They make bookings for you over the phone for your tours, offer advice on where and how to go to various places in Jordan.

I stayed in Amman for one month, and I was residing at Sydney Hotel the entire time. If you're going to visit Amman, book with Sydney Hotel. Thank yourself for doing that later.

Room Tip: The shared room might be less comfortable for some, so if you can, opt for the individual rooms.

Sydney Hotel's staff has a hostel vibe but its set up more like a hotel. There is a dorm room, but most the rooms are private. I stayed in a private room and can attest to its cleanliness, space and comfort. The room was huge and the quality of the linens and bedding were way beyond what I would expect for the price in Amman. The staff was also very friendly and nice.
Warning: there is a cat, but my allergies never flared up. And hes really... quirky.
Note: maybe swing by Jordan Tower Hotel (not far, within walking distance) if you want to find people to share a private car with.

Thank you for your review and I am glad you enjoyed your time with us.

We do organize shared trips to everywhere in Jordan as the one you joined with us but unfortunately that day there were no one interested to join you for that destination.

All the best,

I just can say this is the perfect place to stay in Amman, guys at the reception are amazing, a lot of great tips about where to eat and go. We went everywhere just following the map they gave us and their instructions, very easy :-) we were told to eat at Nazzar ( a Local tiny restaurant) and was so delicious, that i am still dreaming about those meals!!! The best place to stay at Amman, no doubt about it. God value for money!

This is a really great place to stay for a trip to Amman. It is really good value and the managers are incredibly helpful!

The location is excellent, and the atmosphere running through the place is brilliant.
