Jordan Tower Hotel
Jordan Tower HotelWhy we love it: Perennially popular backpacker hotel in central Amman
- Close to the Roman Theater
- Great space to meet travelers
- Knowledgeable staff
The Jordan Tower Hotel has been a stop on the Middle East backpacker trail since the Istanbul to Cairo overland route was still a thing. It certainly has a winning location, just a stone's throw from the Roman Theater and the markets of downtown. En suite rooms are simple but cosy, and great value for the price, though guests are likely to spend as much time chilling in the reception area lounge, which is a perfect place to meet new travel companions. Breakfasts are served in the rooftop restaurant. Staff are attentive to the needs of budget travelers, and are a font of knowledge for planning trips to the Dead Sea Petra, Wadi Rum and beyond (as well as offering in-house services from trusted guides and drivers).
