The Cazar Hotel is one of those hotels from the 1970s/80s that has lost its former glory. It is all a bit run down, but still functioning fairly well. It is one of those hotels I could not recommend, but one in which I felt at home - maybe some left-over sentiment from my backpacker days! It is ideally located in the tourist district of Aqaba within walking distance of the centre, the (not so welcoming public) beach and surrounded by lots of restaurants and cafés. The rooms are clean and comfortable, the lift works, the people on reception were friendly and helpful and the view from our room was veritably panoramic. So what is the problem, one might ask. The public areas of the hotel are all a bit grubby: dusty, motheaten carpets, signs to amenities that no longer exist and huge rooms in darkness that nobody uses anymore. The place could do with a coat of paint, the pool, although refreshingly cool, and all its facilities are in desperate need of renovation. The traffic was loud and the breakfast buffet came in dribs and drabs. Nevertheless for the budget-minded traveller the Cazar is still a definite option.
