Bristol Hotel, Amman Jordan Apr 23, 2013
This is the hotel we got from the travel agent (Kanoo Travels, Bahrain). Supposed to be 5-star.
Airport pickup was arranged by Kanoo as well - neat well mannered english-speaking driver.
The hotel was in a decent area, although slightly tucked away from the main roads. Check in took a while, seems the reception was either taking their time or not interested. The driver noticed us rolling our eyes in disgust so he asked us to have a seat, arranged coffee, and went to the reception trying to get us a room faster. Long story short, we got a room. The lobby and passage to the lifts was shiny, clean, elegant. Until the doors opened. Until we entered the room. Not too bad but it had to be really bad for us to complain. I've seen better. Bathroom was fine, although looked a bit oversized and dim.
Back at the lobby we waited for one of the receptionists to tell us when the next ride to the center of Amman would be available. She was immaculately dressed, hair, nails, suit, skirt, all fantastic - she was totally busy at her terminal, with an air of sophistication. I took a little walk around her desk and noticed she was playing solitaire for windows. I smiled and said 'I like solitaire too' and she looked puzzled. So... we walked out and looked for a cab instead.
Breakfast the next morning was fantastic and luxurious, but the dining area was through a maze of steps and passages.
Took the same hotel on the way back from Petra, for a night, and I was still not impressed. But I wouldn't call it terrible.
