Nice tourist hotel in the town center.

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on October 7, 2009

The Amra palace hotel is a nice tourist hotel with many nice touches to it.
The rooms are pleasant and the dining room nice too.
There is a nice pool area and turkish bath with massage too.
I stayed there a couple of nights and quite liked the place, but be aware that it is located close to the biggest mosque in Wadi Musa, so you will get a free wake up call in the morning when the first prayer is due.
Also be aware that the hotel does not serve alcohol.
This is a good hotel if you wish to explore the own of Wadi Musa aswell as Petra.

Directions: Right in the center of Wadi Musa next to the biggest mosque.

I have read another review on this site about this hotel and was quite surprised as the twin room I stayed in had great views over the village and the mountains which allowed us to watch some fantastic sunsets. Amra Palace sits on the hill above the souk. As for the standard of room the bathroom was quite modern and the beds very comfortable.
For the price I considered this hotel great value compared to other hotels in this range.

Unique Quality: Indoor swimmimg pool and a turkish style bath with massage available which I found great after treking around Petra in the heat all day.
The breakfasts were nothing to write home about but sufficient and the staff were very friendly and helpful.

Fine hotel 5 minutes from Petra

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on December 2, 2008

Spent a couple of nights at the Amra Palace and it was very nice. Our rooms were very clean and comfortable, the showers worked well, and the beds were extremely comfortable. The double bed was huge.

The restaurant works on a buffet meal system which is pretty decent, and they also have a cook making pasta dishes to order should you want it.

Unique Quality: There is a turkish bath in the hotel grounds, and also a very nice indoor swimming pool which is just what is needed after a long day exploring Petra!

It is only 5 minutes from Petra and you can get a taxi from the hotel for 2JD.

There is a small souvenir shop in the hotel, and also an internet cafe.

Directions: Exit the desert highway at Aneizeh crossing 180 km [112 miles] - follow the signs to Petra, pass through al Showbak city and Keep on the same road till you reach Wadi Mousa

A month before this trip when i was about to travel independently with a few friends, i searched for hotel around Petra but never heard about this hotel, only about the bigger ones and better known ones (Movenpick, Taybet Zaman, Golden Tulip etc'..).
Only when i joined this trip a month later which was kind of organaized i asked where will we be staying and heard that name. Googling this name i couldn't find much info so thats actually why its the first tip i'm writing on this page (not sure when i'll write more) hopping it will help others when looking for acommodation.
The Amra hotel is a relatively Small hotel, Located in Wadi Musa, 5 minutes (Really) drive from Petra Site. Its not one of the posh hotels (like the Muvenpick or the Golden Tulip), Its basically very simple and very basic designed though pretty comfortable.
The Single rooms are small, personally i didn't have any interesting view from my room... just a window watching the building near by. The Single room contained two single beds, Small bathroom, TV, hair driere, closet and i think thats about it, pretty basic room. Night time was very cold so i tried to switch on the heating but it didnt work, just cooled the room ! I didnt feel like calling the reception and start this whole tiring thing since i was way too tired, so i just grabed the blankets that were on the second bed and that definitely warmed me. However, if you come on winter time i might want to check this detail before and make sure it works cause trust me, IT IS COLD there, actually not only on winter time, after all i was there on Aprl 8th and it was still cold, we didnt even expect that weather so some of us including my smart self didnt even have jackets !.

Unique Quality: ** Continue **
However, From a spoilt girl point of view i can tell you that If you'll be visiting there for one night like i did, this hotel should be absolutely enough for you. We arrived back from our day at the desert at around 6 - 7pm (and left the morning after at 9am) and we were sooooo tired we didnt care much about anything.... just needed shower food and sleep. The only thing i decided to do was to spoile my self a bit by going to the Khamam and enjoy one good treat. But thats a story for another tip.
If i would have come to enjoy there for a few days i'd definitely book a better hotel and enjoy a much more comfy rooms and other facilities that those hotels offer, but at this case i had no time anyway so as i mentioned before, it was quite good as is.

Another thing, the hotel Stuff was really polite and kind and made us feel very welcome.
Food at dinner and morning was okay, nothing spectacular though not bad. I know some of the people in my trip slept in another hotel (was fully booked when i booked my trip at the last moment) and enjoyed a great breakfast... but okay thats not such a big deal at this case so i think this hotel was really okay if you need a one night sLEEP than its absolutely okay.
Have a great trip :-)

I stayed at this hotel in August 2004. The hotel is absolutely beautiful. It is three star hotel and wonderfully located at the heart of the city. The room was lovely, clean and spacious. The staffs are very friendly and helpful. They provided us with a map of Petra and gave us good information on things to do. The air conditioning was very good. The breakfasts were very good with lots of variety. You could eat inside or in the garden. The hotel is minutes walk from the shopping area and the entrance to the ancient city of Petra.

Unique Quality: All the comforts that one can wish, swimming pool, sauna, Turkish bath, excellent food, very good service.

Directions: The Amra Palace hotel is in the centre of the lively Wadi Mousa, and a kilometer from the entry gate to the Petra National Park.
