“Well situated, but dirty carpets and too much noise from the street”
Reviewed 18 February 2012

This hotel is very well located, just in front of "Pizza Street" (Saada Street), which is central Aqaba's main food and shopping mile,Bay restaurant. As a building, the Shweiki has a lot of potential, seeing the huge entrance hall and the spacious rooms with their balconies. Unfortunately the rooms have not been refurbished since a long time. The floors were not tiled, but covered with carpets which had not been cleaned since a long time either. The blankets were also dirty, the toilet flush wasn't working and the TV was out of order, too. Luckily I stayed for only night. For sure an experience I would not like to repeat.

Nice centrally located hotel. Rooms are big , but outdated.
Parking is free.
You can walk from this hotel to many restaurants and shops in the central Aqaba

Had a great stay at the Shweiki Hotel. The manager and his staff were very friendly and welcoming. Food and service were excellent. The room had a balcony with a clear view to the Red Sea. If I ever return to this part of the world, I very much look forward to returning

To be sure, this is a fairly basic hotel. However, it was central, clean, inexpensive and the staff was friendly and accommodating.
You don't get any extras, but you don't pay much either.
The rooms do not have safes, which in my opinion was a drawback. (I am uncertain as to whether or not the front desk has a safety deposit box.)
Breakfast (included) was a bit basic but tasty nevertheless.
I stayed one night in this hotel after having stayed a night at the supposedly more prestigious Golden Tulip, and if I had a chance to do it all over again I'd stay at the Shweiki instead of the Golden Tulip.
I thought it was great value.
