Great Location - bad timing
Review of Movenpick Resort, Petra by barryjnr

Advantages: Prime location, excellent access to sites, lovely roof terrace
Disadvantages: bit expensive when you add the 26% tax onto everything, renovations, lack of secure parking

This hotel has got to be the hotel of choice in Petra, literally within 2 minutes walk is the entrance to the Petra ruins site. You couldn't ask for a better location when you are in Petra, especially as you are going to be doing a lot of walking! The lo ... Read review

David Intercontinental Tel Aviv hotel, great hotel great location
Review of David InterContinental, Tel Aviv by nicolee1

Advantages: Large rooms, great breakfast, and very clean.
Disadvantages: That little bit away from the buzz of Tel Aviv

Stayed in this hotel for 2 weeks, immaculately clean, the rooms are a great size, and the breakfast superb, I have stayed in many hotels in Tel Aviv. This hotel is a little out, more towards Yaffo, but in a way better as you are that bit away from the hus ... Read review

Krak des Chevaliers (Castle of the Knights) is the ultimate medieval castle and the dream of any child who ever played at knights and dragons or other games on the theme of Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table. It is one of few places I have been tha ... Read review

The Carlton - not quite as good as it sounds, for us anyway
Review of Carlton Hotel Damascus, Syria by roundthekitchentable

Advantages: Very clean; has an ATM in the lobby; polite and helpful English-speaking reception staff
Disadvantages: No restaurants within easy reach; 25% charged on top of advertised food and drink prices

...stayed one night at the Carlton Hotel, Damascus recently on a whistlestop (independent, rather than organised) tour of Syria. Hotel reservations for the trip had been made on our behalf by a Syrian travel agency, who assured us that accommodation had ... Read review

The real Bethlehem
Review of Bethlehem (Israel) by flyingllamas

Advantages: History and culture.
Disadvantages: Conflict, the wall.

Advantages: Spectacular iconic architecture
Disadvantages: Not somewhere I'd be rushing to at the moment

Most big cities have one or more iconic buildings that serve as an instantly recognisable symbol of that city. These are the buildings that the foreign correspondents stand in front of when making their reports on the television news. If it's Sydney you'l ... Read review

Advantages: 5* service, excellent food, clean big rooms with seating areas
