Dead in the Water
Review of Amman Beach Tourist Resort (Dead Sea) by Essexgirl2006

Advantages: Floating in the Dead Sea is a unique experience and one I was keen to try on my visit to Jordan. I
Disadvantages: Facilities a bit basic

Floating in the Dead Sea is a unique experience and one I was keen to try on my visit to Jordan. It is the lowest land point on the planet (408m below sea level) and the second saltiest body of water, with a salt content nine times denser than a 'normal' ... Read review

Good review by Dentolux
I loved the dead sea although I panicked when I couldn't get my feet to go down on the floor and was rescued by two big blokes who lifted me straight out of the water then my feet went down! by garymarsh86

All's Well at the Al Fanar
Review of Al Fanar Palace Hotel, Amman by Essexgirl2006

Advantages: Nice rooms, well equipped
Disadvantages: Not centrally located

This hotel was selected by my tour operator as the hotel for our first two nights in Amman, Jordan. It is a large independent hotel in the west of the city, approx 45 minutes from Queen Alia Airport. The immediate area doesn't really have much to offer, b ... Read review

Jabal al-Qal'a, Amman
Review of The Citadel, Amman by hiker

Advantages: Thousands of years of history beneath your feet
Disadvantages: Quite a bit of it probably still is buried

Usually translated as "the Citadel", the Jabal al-Qal'a is more than a fortress. Indeed, it's unclear that it ever was a fortress in the true sense of the word. It is much more of an ancient walled town. That's not to say it isn't a place of refuge or ... Read review

Islam Made Easy
Review of King Abdullah Mosque, Amman by hiker

Advantages: It's a mosque - it's beautiful and you might learn something
Disadvantages: You might not.

To put this review in context, let me say that it comes from a purely "tourist" point of view. Nothing that follows is intended to be in any way disrespectful. People can be sensitive to issues of religion and the treating of places of worship as touri ... Read review

Better Than The Average Ibis
Review of Ibis Amman, Amman by hiker

Advantages: Decent rooms, good-enough food, friendly service
Disadvantages: You are in hotel-chain-land.

The flight time had been changed and then it was delayed at Heathrow because of those inexplicable folk who somehow fail to make the flight even though their luggage does… so we have to sit on the tarmac for another hour while their bags are found and ... Read review

Chilled out capital!
Review of Amman (Jordan) by dangaroo

Advantages: The charm perhaps lies in its slight blandness
Disadvantages: Not as much to do as Damascus or Cairo!

I arrived in Amman on a JET bus from Jordan's second city Irbid in the north. I was in my element, enjoying that "just crossed a border, in a new country" feel. The journey over from Galilee in Israel had been remarkably easy but in my true style, I manag ... Read review

Review of Amman (Jordan) by Katieshaz

Advantages: Cheap, cultural
Disadvantages: Boring, dusty, leering men, lack of pavements

I was in Amman for some time with my job and I found it an interesting but also a very strange place! Getting there: I flew with Royal Jordanian from Heathrow. British Mediterranean also does direct flights. Return flights tend to cost around £300 but ... Read review

Great review - always interesting to read travel reviews! x by frankiecesca
Interesting insight in to Amman - I am sorry you did not enjoy life there (I think I read that somewhere else) but your article certainly encourages one to visit and it is on my list of places to see one day (problem is that the list is rather long). Thanks though for this - very good stuff as I come to expect from your writing. by andrewfleminguk

Is this really a 4 Star hotel?
Review of Safir Imperial Palace, Amman by Katieshaz

Advantages: Cheap
Disadvantages: Unhelpful staff, the food,

I stayed here whilst on an airline training course. Luckily I wasn't paying for it! About the hotel: Apparently it's a four star but I'd personally give it three stars. The website boasts of the luxury and how it's located in a prime part of Jordan. I ... Read review

Review of Amman (Jordan) by traveller55

Advantages: I really don't know
Disadvantages: I really don't know

Amman is the city capital of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan. Its origins are dated back to the Neolithic age (about 6500 BC) as proved by the archaeological finds in the area. Amman, like Rome, lays on seven hills that here are called "Jabal". Amma ... Read review

One drag or two with your morning coffee?
Review of InterContinental Jordan, Amman by Vodkaboy

Advantages: Nice rooms, easy to work, good dining in summer
Disadvantages: Lobby drab, smokey breakfast area

I have stayed here several times, the first in early 2001, then four or five times in 2003. Over the three years it does not seem to have changed much. The building certainly looks imposing as you drive up to it; seven or eight floors high, yellow covered ... Read review

Not deserving of a Queen's name.
Review of Amman Airport - Queen Alia International by Vodkaboy

Advantages: You get out eventually.
Disadvantages: Uncaring, disorganised, senseless

There is an old story about someone who had a ship named after them. When they went on the ship they thought it was so crap, so terrible, that they changed their name. It could be a really old story, except that I made it up a few days ago. But one day ... Read review
