        Perfectly located for Petra”

        Friendly, attentive staff who went out of their way to help. Fantastic location, a few minutes from the gate to Petra. Good buffet breakast with enough variety to suit most tastes.

        From the moment we arrived in Jordan, the Petra Moon provided a top notch service. We arranged for the hotel to collect us from the airport, the driver was extremely friendly and knowledgeable. Our room (family room)was large and spotlessly clean. The hotel really is only a few minutes walk from the gate to Petra, which was great after walking all day! The beds were very comfortable, the air conditioning worked well (it was a little noisy but I'm a light sleeper) We paid for wifi and were a little disappointed that the payment was per device, not per room. We mentioned this during check out and the receptionist said he would bring it to the management's attention (watch this space!!) The breakfast set us up for the day and was of good quality, the selection more than adequate. I would have no hesitation in recommending the Petra Moon to my friends and family.

        Petra moon hotel was a great place to stay. Close to the entrance to the visitors centre, walking distance. The hotel experience was exceptional, rooms were fantastic with a warm welcome and very considerate to their guests. Room were immaculate and comfortable just what is needed for a petra stay. Views to die for of an evening. Staff were great, and always warm, welcoming and accommodating. Overall this jordon experience and the Petra moon hotel were awesome. If you coming to Petra I highly recommended a stay with Petra moon hotel. You won’t regret it.

        Perfectly located”

        Located 100m from the entrance to Petra Visitor Centre

        This hotel is perfectly located for visiting the Petra site. It is approximately 100m from the visitor centre which is the point of entrance to the ancient city of Petra and so means that there is no need for transport. Check-in was very quick, efficient and welcoming and the reception staff were on hand to provide information about opening times, costs of hiring a guide etc. My room was on the third floor and I was provided with a complimentary bowl of fresh fruit, as well as complimentary soft drinks and crisps. There was also a lovely touch of tiny bars of chocolate on the pillows. The room was spacious and comfortable, although the furnishings were slightly dated. It was great for what I needed as the time spent in my room was minimal anyway. The bathroom was small and frustratingly, after a hard day of walking around Petra, there was no plug for the bath - I would have loved to have soaked my aching legs! Wi-fi was free and it worked well in my room with a strong signal. You need a code to access the wifi and it was not a problem to be given codes for more than one device. There were two lifts operating up to the rooms although only one seemed to be working during my stay. Breakfast was served from 06:30hrs and was buffet style. There was plenty of variety in terms of hot and cold dishes and it was fresh and well laid out. Waiting staff were very friendly and they were always on hand to refill tea and coffee cups. Overall, I was really pleased with my stay and I would not hesitate to return.

        Petra Moon - Great Place to Stay”

        Location, good food, and great staff

        We arrived here after a full day of touring Petra, and the Petra Moon hotel was a perfect respite from the constant badgering to buy this or that or ride this or that type of animal. We had a very nice room, with a modern bathroom. Like I said the strongest point of this hotel, apart from the facility, is the staff. So courteous and helpful. Dinner is a buffet with a huge variety of food, but get this, all of it is good! The breakfast was the same, with hot egg dishes prepared on the spot. Would I stay here again, you bet!

        Good location”

        You should be aware this is a 'dry' hotel. No alcohol at all so if you want a glass of wine with dinner there are only a couple of places in town have one, and this is not one of them. Also we were there when it was extremely hot, and for this reason we picked this hotel that had a pool. The pool was extremely cold even though it was summer. It was too cold to swim in. I could not get past the top of my legs, so maybe if you are only staying for the pool think again! We also stayed for the proximity to the entrance of Petra. Now after being there and being able to see, it is not the closest hotel or guest house to the gate. Petra itself was on my bucket list and although it is not the easiest place to get to in the world, it is worth the end result. The hotel room was clean and the staff very helpful. Going again, I would stay the closest I could find to the gate, but would look for somewhere where I could have a glass of wine with dinner, or maybe with a pool where the water is not freezing cold.

        Excellent location and great value for money”

        Location!

        The Petra Moon was a great hotel. Recently refurbished, any guest can see that the owners have put much effort into creating a comfortable and modern hotel in which to stay, without charging an arm and a leg for it. In fact, many hotels in the same proximity to the gates of Petra charged much more for their rooms, with seemingly little added benefit. Breakfast was ok, but not amazingly generous with variety (dont except many cereal types other than choc pops and faux corn flakes). In addiiton, the service was efficient and professional, but everyone there looked petrified and on edge all the time - eager to please, but it came off more as cautious not to do the wrong thing.

When we got there it was too early for check in and the room wasn't ready yet but staff was very efficient to accommodate us as quickly as possible. They were kind and available with explanations and suggestions. Room was bright and very spacious with large windows and very comfortable big bed. I just wished they could provide more soaps/amenities. Staff also offered to prepare box breakfast for early departure the next day. Highly recommended,especially if in Petra for one day.

        We were two families of four. Petra Moon is a two minute walk to the entrance of the Petra historical site. No taxis or any hassle. Simply walk to the park.

        Great little hotel”

        We arrived really early after an overnight flight and they let us access our room because we really needed a nap before exploring Petra, which was very kind. The rooms are quite small but very nicely appointed - like a much more expensive hotel. The food is mostly buffet at breakfast and dinner in the main restaurant, its good but not brilliant. I might struggle if staying for long; but there is also the BBQ on the roof which we did not have time to try but sounded good. The roof has great views. The pool is FREEZING (which was actually welcome given how hot it was outside) but it was a bit of a shock. Great location - 1 min walk from the entrance to Petra. Overall glad I chose it and would return if back in this area again.

I was not too happy! I let them know that we had already paid the total price of accomations 72 hrs before we got there. They let us stay at the hotel and gave us a room on the fourth floor facing Petra. The breakfast had a big selection and was very good.

Start of breakfast was quite early at 6.30am which was good if you have to make an early start in Petra (recommended to make an early start otherwise gets too hot later on in the afternoon). Friendly staff and an excellent location close to the Petra Visitor centre make this hotel an excellent choice.

        Booked for a low season (august) so prices seemed good for its location. Rooms were clean. There was a bed missing from the family room when we arrived but that was soon sorted. It was good that we could change the GBP into JD at the hotel, although they did not always have enough cash to give me. Only had dinner once in the 3 nights at the hotel and it had a good enough range of buffet food to make it worthwhile for the 12 JD price per person. The TV did not have enough English speaking channels and the TV did not support watching video from a USB. Overall, friendly staff and an excellent location close to the Petra Visitor centre make this hotel an excellent choice.

        Relax in Comfort After Touring Petra”

        Clean, Comfortable Room, Breakfast

        Touring Jordan, in particular Petra is hard work unless you are superfit, To come back to a comfortable, completely western hotel is heaven. We were exhausted after walking and climbing 7 hours but all that hardship (worth it because the sites are breathtaking) was forgotten after that relaxing bath and the good food afterwards. My suggestion is to use the hotel for two nights. It may be a bit more expensive but it is worth it
