Room is spacious. Hotel staffs are very kind ; when we realized we were late to catch a boat for day cruise, a receptionist gave us a ride to pier. One day we found there is flowers from garden on the bed side table which was sent by housekeeping staff, lovely.
I appreciated for the balcony for smoking and laundry.
Hotel has swimming pool but water was extremely cold to stay long. Breakfast time was busy with groups and trays were almost empty but generally we were happy with our stay.
Hotel offeres shuttle service to Club Murjan which is located south coast of Aqaba.
I have stayed in the Alcazar hotel several times over the last few years and couldn't recommend it highly enough. The Alcazar offers the best of both worlds in terms of location. The hotel itself is less than 5 minutes walk from the centre of town but it also has a private beach club south of the town (which none of the other hotels in Aqaba have) with a free shuttle bus service. Any of the hotels in Aqaba which have direct beach access are about a 20 minute walk from the town centre and are at the top end of the price range (Movenpick, Intercontinental etc.). The staff in the Alcazar are fantastic and you are quickly known by name - not just an anonymous guest. The bedrooms are huge (bigger than some apartments I have been in!) and have satellite TV. The views from the balconies are excellent, particularly the upper floors. The dive centre is properly managed with an emphasis on safety and new equipment which is properly maintained. Nitrox is available to certified divers. The Alcazar may not be the newest or most modern hotel in Aqaba but it's clean, comfortable, the food is good and I often meet the same guests whenever I return and there has to be a good reason for people to return regularly.
I would NOT recommend this hotel!!!! We paid in advance for their "best" rooms and even spoke with them on the telephone. When we got there, the rooms were NASTY... especially the bathrooms... don't ask how long it's been since the divet has been cleaned... the linen on the bed wasn't clean and the rooms looked like they were last cleaned in 1920 when the furniture was put in. We complained so they showed us "nicer rooms", ok, they were cleaned in 1960. We were told that they had better rooms (the ones we PAID for) but that none were available. We refused to stay,. (oh and the tv was 5" the beds were twins not doubles as they advertise. ) IF you decide to stay there ask for the best rooms, make sure you get them and be forwarned that it is in a noisy area.
Unique Quality: Pool looked nice, it was big, the building looks like it needs to be torn down tho.
Directions: Middle of a "happening area" disco's, Popeye's, Burger King, Pizza hut plus other resturants. Walking distance to shopping and a mall.
The Alcazar Hotel provides 132 spacious, well-equipped rooms at budget prices. Rooms have air-conditioning, en-suite facilities, satellite TV and balconies.
The location is convenient, a mere 5 minute walk from the centre of the resort and surrounded by numerous restaurants and shops.
There are 2 restaurants on site, as well as The Dolphin pub, which serves Amstel beer and has a pool table.
There is a large swimming pool on the hotel's premises, and there is also a beach club owned by the hotel which is located 15-20 km down the coast. The hotel provides a free shuttle to and from the club.
The hotel's staff are helpful and friendly, and numerous trips can be booked from the hotel's reception. There is also a diving school on site - and a significant proportion of the hotel's guests seemed to be divers.
The hotel rates are very reasonable, and the price includes a very good breakfast.
