The room was a bit dirty but the hotel has a nice rooftop and the staff was nice and helpful. They offered to do he transfer until the entrance on Petra in the morning which is very convenient.


Nice hostel, very helpful and friendly staff. It's just up the road from the roundabout with lots of restaurants and small convenience shops. We drove down to Petra and parked for free at the gate. Breakfast was a typical Jordanian selection.


Petra Gate was quiet and well-kept, located halfway up a hill in Petra town that allowed it the most incredible view of the entire valley. I highly recommend watching the sun set from the terrace on the roof! The staff were kind and helpful, even helping me book a bus back to Amman the following evening. The rooms were clean and the hotel is near to several shops and restaurants where you can have dinner.


Not as close to Petra as advertised. Quite a walk. Basic and simple repairs are needed throughout the hotel but have been neglected. Mediocre food, but the staff was helpful in arranging transportation in Jordan.


Great stay and great staff. Very nice and helpful


Very nice staff, offered a free ride and provided information and advice. breakfast very basic.
