Amman's hotels are either flea-pits or pricey 5-star hotels, with only a handful of exceptions.
The hotels below have been grouped into three pricing categories:
Luxury (over 150JD)
Moderate (50JD to 150JD)
Cheap (up to 50JD)
These prices are for a double room per night, including all taxes.
Amman Marriott Hotel
Centrally located in the Shmeisani area, the Amman Marriott Hotel is a camel's spit from the city's major attractions and the most popular shopping streets. With marble bathrooms, soft, lost weekend beds and views fit for a monarch, it injects a little Western luxury into the Amman's accommodation cannon. If money is no object, the Royal Suite ticks all the over-indulgence boxes, while its Oasis Health Club and choice of four lounge bars can make sovereigns of the simplest men.Address: Shmeissani, Issam Ajluni Street, Amman,

Crowne Plaza Hotel Amman
At Crowne Plaza hotel, you can overlook the white city of Amman. International fast food restaurants, the main shopping area of Sweifiyeh, and the popular Gold Souk of Um Utheina are within walking distance. This 5 star hotel is an acclaimed destination for business trips, family visits and even solo travels to Jordan.Address: Shmeissani, King Faisal Bin Abdul Aziz, 6th Circle, Amman,
Telephone: +962 6 551 0001
Four Seasons Hotel Amman
Undoubtedly the city's most luxurious hotel, the Four Seasons knows its place as it sits atop the highest of the Amman's Jabels (hills). Naturally, the hotel's signature service, beds and ambience are otherworldly, but you can't put a price on its wonderful views. Dead Sea mud treatments and salt scrubs are available in its spa and its run of excellent onsite restaurants might mean you don't eat anywhere else.Address: , Al Kindi Street, Amman,
Telephone: +962 6 550 5555.
What it lacks in 21st century décor, the Amman International makes up in cleanliness and friendliness. The rooms are respectable: beds are soft, wooden furnishings sturdy (if not a generation old) and the floor-to-ceiling windows let in plenty of light. Each comes with air-conditioning. The hotel has several bars and lounges (the International Grand Lounge is our pick), while a decent sized pool sits beneath the palm trees outside.Address: , Jordan University Road, Amman,
Telephone: + 962 6 534 1712.
Corp Amman Hotel
Located opposite the Royal Cultural Centre, the Corp Amman Hotel has 108 rooms, so if there's nothing on across the road, it opens up ample bargaining opportunities for nabbing a knocked down price. Sleeping quarters approach apartment sizes, and each comes with a large TV, free Wi-Fi and soundproofed windows. The small gym and swimming pool is enough to keep guests primed during their stay, while the rooftop lounge is best at dusk.Address: Al Shmeisani, Queen Alia Street, Amman,
Telephone: +962 6 568 6666.
Modern with a hint of faux-Moorish architecture, this moderately priced, 4-star hotel combines a great location with tasteful decoration and air-conditioned bliss. Under the shadows of some 5-star stalwarts, Toledo Hotel offers decent room dimensions, a restaurant that marries East and West, plus a spa with a lap pool, Jacuzzi, steam room and sauna.Address: , 37 Al Razi Street, Amman,
Telephone: +962 6 465 7777.
Art Hotel Downtown
Less creative and colourful than the name suggests, Art Hotel Downtown instead blends the greys and creams of an executive business bachelor pad. Architect Ammar Khammash is behind the affable accommodation, which has reasonably-sized rooms, satellite TVs and airy communal areas, and is located within walking distance of some important sights.Address: , 32 King Faisal Street, Amman,
Telephone: + 962 6 463 8900.
The Amman Pasha Hotel
Look past the floral bedspreads, and rise above the dodgy water pressure, and The Amman Pasha Hotel is a bit of a bargain. Leaning towards the hostel side of accommodation, rooms are clean and staff are friendly, and there’s a lovely roof terrace. The quirky café is adorned with stained glass windows, and Arabian carpets and onsite cooking classes are worth a few hours of your time. Toss up between rooms with views of the Roman Theatre or those away from the hubbub of the road outside. Breakfast is included.Address: , 4 Al Shabsough Street, Amman,
Telephone: + 962 6 461 8262.
With a solid stamp of standardisation, ibis Amman works hard to provide perennial hotel needs: quiet rooms, decent beds and clean bathrooms. The location is central enough, while Wi-Fi and breakfast is included as part of the deal. Funky, Ikea-like furniture adorns the public spaces and staff are super helpful.Address: , 61 Mohd Fayadh Al Assaf Street, Amman,
