The most outstanding thing about the Abbasi is the Hostess. She is just the friendliest most helpful person you could wish to meet. The Hotel is incredibly cheap ($30AU) but more like a Backpacker Hostel. There is a Common Room and a small Breakfast Room that fills up fast and you have to eat in the Common Room. The Rooms are relatively clean, but we slept in our sleeping bags. The hot water is a huge issue and for 2 out of 3 nights we had tepid showers, but this was a problem across all of Jordan & Syria. The room had a pedestal fan and a bar heater. Certainly not the Hilton, but you get what you pay for.
