The Petra Guest House
This atmospheric small hotel was the first to be built for visitors to the world-famous city and offers the nearest accommodation to the entrance. We did not use the Guest House for many years because it had become rather run-down, but in 2013 the hotel underwent a thorough overall and now offers excellent four star standards which we are more than happy to recommend.
This unique property has 41 guestrooms and 31 chalets with modern amenities - LCD TV, safe, mini-bar, ironing board, coffee/tea making facilities and much more. The open air lobby terrace in the 'Piazza' outside the entrance is a lovely place to relax and there is also a main dining room indoors. The famous Cave Bar (below left), entered from the Piazza area, is housed in a 2,000 year old Nabatean tomb!
Stay connected with your friends and family through the Guest House's WIFI internet access.
The Guest House also runs the Basin Restaurant, the only option for lunch within the ancient city itself; an extensive buffet spread.
