Amra Palace Hotel is one of the best hotels in Wadi Musa, located about 1.2 km uphill from the entrance to Petra. It means that to get to Petra you can walk easily. On the way back after the whole day in the valley, you might want to get a taxi.
I was a budget traveller and ending up in this hotel was a very positive surprise. It has 3 stars (***) and it is very nice and clean. The bed was very comfortable and the room designed in a modern style, as of 4 stars (****) in Europe. And for the price about EUR 50 for a double bed room?
I was travelling in December so no use of the airconditioning, I used it to heat up the room (up to 25 C +).
Their evening buffet dinners were just amazing, local Jordanian cousine including dezerts (original recipes). Please don´t expect any alcohol (just local non-alcoholic beer).
You may try that your room is located further from the elevator (could be noisy). And I did not manage to get really hot water (just slightly warm) - could be nice in summer, but I was travelling in winter.
And certainly try their "spa and scrab massage". The environment is not a modern Austrian mountain spa, but the hand touch is an interesting experience (for only 13 JD - special offer).
If you want to go out, try "Orient Café", it is a shisha bar where you can experience (for just 3-5 JD) how the water pipe should be served and enjoyed (1.5 hour of a regular car of a specialised guy).
