La Maison Hotel - Petra Reviews
Great Location, Average Hotel Oct 30, 2012
The hotel was decent, but not amazing. Our first room had a broken bed and they quickly took care of that by giving us another room. The second room had little to no water pressure in the shower, which made it really hard to cleanse oneself.
The staff was awesome though and very helpful! Excellent English! The room also included free WiFi which was necessary for us to contact home.
The location cannot be beat. It is less than a 5 minute walk to the entrance of Petra. The staff also let us drop off our bags at the main counter after we checked out. You don't want to have to carry them around with you in Petra.
In general, I would have given them a higher rating if it weren't for the shower and bed (which I consider essential).
