This is a very good option for those looking for a mid-range hotel in central Aqaba. The hotel is only two years old, so everything is new. The beds are firm, the bathroom fixtures are shiny and there are insect screens on the windows. The pool is nice, though not very big.
The hotel advertises wi-fi in all rooms, but we had to go into the hallway and sit by the lifts in order to get a signal. Still, the wi-fi was very reasonably priced (2 JD per hour).
What we didn't like about this hotel was the sign at the entrance (and again in the lifts) that said, "Dear Guest., Its forbidden to bring food all kinds of drink from outside all this for all advantage - The Management"[sic]. While certainly amusing, this sign means that you must purchase all drinks and snacks from the hotel! Aside from being expensive, the hotel doesn't offer the kinds of drinks and snacks we wanted. We became smugglers, bringing in contraband Mountain Dew, Pringles and dried apricots and disposing of our own rubbish in the bins outside.
In hundreds of hotels, in 60 countries, I have never encountered such an outrageous policy. I would still recommend this hotel - just plan to hide your snacks and drinks on the way in, and discreetly dispose of the empty containers on the way out.
