The decoration of the hotel is not modern but the hotel is very clean with an excellent location (about 100 meters from the entrance of Petra). The owner and the staff are very welcoming and available.

The hotel was good for the money and a very short walk to the entrance to Petra. Our biggest complaint was there was virtually no water pressure in the shower and no hot water. There weren't many guests staying the night we were there so instead of the buffet they cooked us breakfast in the morning.

I stayed here on my last solo travel to Petra. Its a basic hotel that is clean, has friendly staff (you are served with cold juice as you arrive) and basic breakfast. The rate is comparable to other hotels in the area. If proximity to Petra entrance is a big plus for you this is the place! However many hotels... More

The hotel is close to Petra, the staff help- and cheerful, however, the hotel is in awful condition. It looks DDR-chique from 1975, and nothing is done since then. Shower, mirror, sink, and light switches, lamps: they were all damaged or out of function. The breakfast is terrible: old bread, cold coffee. In the hostel in Amman, the breakfast was... More

My family and I stay for two nights in Candles hotel. The location is a walking distance to Petra gate. It is a reasonable price with great location. The room is average. The bedding is comfortable enough. The WC is quite small. The staffs were very helpful. Would recommend!

Me and my friends were staying in Candles Hotel, which is possibly the best hotel to stay when you're going to visit Petra. It is very close to main entrance to Petra, very cosy, clean, quiet and well-equipped. Also the owner is very nice and the staff is proffesional. Totally recommend!
