The hotel looked nice at night with all the lights on and candles but during the day it lost most of it charm.
It definitely is not the one and only boutique hotel in Aqaba (as their claim on their web); there are plenty of those in the vicinity. The rooms were far from deluxe and spacious. The décor might have been stylish but back in the late 70s/ early 80s and it has not been changed since then. The furniture looked used. The room size (3 people) was OK but bathroom was extremely tiny, uncomfortable and it was even difficult to turn around (we are normal size people:). There was a strong smell of cigarettes in the room and due to it it was difficult to sleep. There was no free wi fi – they only gave us a free voucher for 1,5 hrs. (after that you need to pay for the wi fi). I would expect much more for the price they charge.
Staff was nice and helpful. Breakfast selection was OK, but other meals I preferred to eat in town. Also, they had a very nice swimming pool.
