Queen Ayola Hotel Madaba Reviews
Great spot in the city Jul 05, 2014
This hotel is located centrally on Tourism street in Madaba. Madaba is the best place to stay when arriving in Jordan from the Queen Alia airport. Mosaic city's most common site is St. George's Church of the Mosaic Map located just a few meters up the road.
I was warmly greeted by Fadi, one of the owners of the hotel and restaurant. Making no reservations I was shown my options of rooms and decided to take the deluxe (w/balcony) for a slightly discounted rate of 27JD/night (not because I snore but that I was one person, Brian, ;)). It was a good sized room with ensuite and balcony overlooking the main street. The room had all the necessary items, soap, shampoo, heat/cool, tv , towels etc. The rooms are cleaned daily, a nice touch considering the city is surrounded by sand.
The hotel is very clean, especially considering the surrounding environment of....sand. The two guys taking care of the daily going-ons are great. Fadi is definitely a well informed host and is more than apt to offer you guided tours or leave you to explore the city on your own. I was given a map that highlights all the major sites of the city and surrounding area.
From the hotel the major city sites are easily visited in one day due to its great central location. Food, shops, groceries, churches and restaurants are all at your doorstep. The hotel also has a nice restaurant at street level that serves authentic Jordan food and drinks as well as wings and beer for those a little homesick. Travelers, expats and locals alike frequent the restaurant. I ate here a few times as well as tickled my throat with some scrubbing bubbles (the dry sand air makes your throat call for a beer every once and a while) and was very happy with their offerings and service.
After two days of exploring I asked to hire a driver for the following day. Odtllah Salem met me that evening to give suggestions and go over prices. Quoted 40JD for a full day. The driver was excellent and after a full, full day returned me back to the hotel for the agreed price. I gave a 15JD tip as I thought was adequate for the day and I was then offered a free ride to Amman to catch a bus to Petra the next morning.
The owners and staff are always interested in your activities and comfort and this lends a nice familiar feel to the stay. If entering and leaving Jordan by air this would be mine and should be your choice hotel.
