I stayed at Musa Springs Hotel for one night. I was greeted by the Co-Owner SULEIMAN on arrival. Suleiman is an extremely pleasant, courteous and helpful gentleman. The rooms and premises are kept VERY CLEAN. Suleiman showed me my room, and because I expressed some slight reservation about the close quarters to another guest, he immediately changed my room to...

Hot shower and heating working very good. Free transport to Petra. Cheap accommodation. Interestingly enough, the spring next to the hotel appears to be a biblical sight, which we actually found out when we got back from holidays (luckily we had a look when we were there). It's far from the city center and there is not much around (restaurants... More

I had booked a dorm bed however on arrival was upgraded to a double room. The room itself was a little small for two people and had a really strong musty/ cigarette smell (probably... More

This Hostel was really what you expect from a Hostel. It was clean, cheap and you could also get some nice dinner for a good price. They also provide a shuttle service at any time to Petra and back.

This place was great for the price. We stayed for a couple of nights and had no issues, the place was clean and the staff very friendly. Didn't spend much time in the hotel as we were in Petra most of the time.

I can warmly recommend this friendly, clean and helpfull hotel in the outskirts of Petra. The staff always make you feel welcome, and eager to answer to any question or to arrange any kind of logistics, e.g. transport within Petra area or beyond. Prices more than reasonable.

Very helpful and friendly family run hotel. The owners organised free transport down the hill to Petra (a bit too far to walk) and also to Amman airport. Good value, clean basic rooms and a simple but adequate and well priced menu. I'd recommend to any family travelling on a budget.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Your best choice in Petra Jordan hotels . Moses Spring hotel : The first significant mention of Petra is in the Old Testament, as the prophet Moses approached Mount Edom after their forty years in the desert..Local legend says that it was in the hills just above Petra that God ordered Moses to produce water for his people by speaking to a rock (Exodus 17). When Moses instead struck the rock, the spring that gushed was Ain Mussa (Spring of Moses).This spring is today housed beneath a three white domes building at the eastern entrance to Petra. This is the first building you will see when you come from Amman or Aqaba on the right hand side . In our original location we have been welcoming tourists to this wonderful site for 29 years with staff that speaks English, French and German (apart from Arabic of course ).Mussa Spring Hotel is recommended by all major traveling guide books in different languages (Lonely Planet, Let's Go, Guide de Routard, Rough Guide, Frommer's, Michelin, ...)The hotel has 22 guest rooms (single, double, triple) all equipped with private western toilet and shower, satellite TV, movies (of course are 'Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade' and 'Lawrence of Arabia' among the extensive selection), telephone, central heating and 24 hour hot water . It offers daily free shuttles to/from the gate at Petra (Ain Mussa). ... more   less
