“Absolutely Accommodating!”
Reviewed 28 May 2013

I arrived in Aqaba in the wee hours of the morning and headed to Al Qidra, where I had a reservation for the following night. The nighttime desk guy apologized that they didn't have an open room for me but that he would let me know as soon as they did, and he let me hang out in the lobby and brought me tea and orange juice. Someone checked out around 8AM and he had the room quickly readied for me and didn't charge me for the early check-in.

They also helped me arrange transport to Wadi Rum and I used their service to the private beach.

The room was perfectly clean and spacious and even had a balcony. The breakfast was awesome, and the location was perfect.

They also let me store the bulk of my luggage there while I went to Wadi Rum.

My only complaint is that it was a bit loud at night. The street traffic was loud, but there were also children running around in the hallway. It's possibly that this was a one-time thing, but it was perplexing either way.

Dear Sir

we would like to thank you about this review

in any time you decide to come back here we will do the same
but about the street traffic we can do nothing because we are in the best area in aqaba and most of the people who come to aqaba you will find them here

i am so sorry about it

We arrived on a hot summer afternoon after driving from Petra, and being met in the lobby with an icy cold drink totally did it for us. The appointed room that we booked beforehand, had AC, but the AC unit leaked water onto one of the beds. They quickly upgraded us to a suite of double the value without adding to the price.

The hotel is within reach of the beach and restaurants on foot. Great management and definitely a yes!

The manager and owner of this hotel is really hospitable, he will help you with your every question or request. The rooms are clean. Simple but very tasty breakfast. I recommend this hotel to everyone, who wishes to spend most of the time outside the hotel, but still wants to enjoy his room at the end of each day.
