Can anyone recomend a good budget hotel in Petra?
I have heard that the admission is very high to enter Petra. How much?
Admission prices for Petra are at the moment:
11JD for one day, 13JD for two days and 16JD for three days, with the fourth day free. This is half the price of what it was a few eyars back. Due to the low tourist numbers the prices are cut back 50%. Good news huh?
There are plenty of good budget accomodations available in Wadi Musa, the town near Petra.
The Alanbat II, Cleopatra, Musa spring and there are more. I stayed in a place called the "Valentine inn" which is really an excellent budget place. From what i heared better not stay there as a single woman though!
A really excellent website for independent travellers to Jordan is
Or have a look at my site for some pics
There is a Marriott Petra with fairly low rates. That should be OK for a single woman.
Been looking for a hills or hillside resort/hotels in Jordan but came up with only 2 - Crown Plaza Petra and Janna Spa & Resort, yet not much of the green lush thing that I am looking for.
Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated...thanks in advance.
I don't think you will find much greenery in Jordan. I travelled around the country and there was not much around! The Crowne Plaza at Petra has hilly suroundings and is v. convenient for visiting the site, but there was a Movenpick Hotel at the top of Wadi Musa (the town where Petra is) which seemed to have beautiful views of Petra itself and was perched high on a hill. Be careful when looking online though, as I believe there are 2 Movenpicks - one of which is right opposite the Petra entrance gate, the other one being the one you want. Just looked - it's the Nabatean Castle Movenpick Hotel that's on the hill.
Thanks a lot Chizz for the info!
And yes I lined down my choices to Crowne plaza, Moevenpick Nabatean, Janna Spa and Petra Panorama.
But I guess, Crowne plaza would be the crown among the choices.
Thanks a lot.
Yes - we stayed at Crown Plaza and we really liked it - the views from the pool on an evening are nice and the hotel was not expensive - rooms are very cozy though (i.e. compact!).
The Marriott Petra also has beautiful views across the valley looking toward the hills. THe hotel was very nice, the rooms good sized and the staff very helpful.
Thanks for all the info, and I posted another question here.
well there are not hills nor either hillside resort ...moreover you can find a hotel c/o jerash, on a hill , named Olive Hotel....maybe a 3 star...otherwise you can choose an accommodation nearby natural reserve, like azraq...dana...there are a nice , and naturalike accommodations.
