Comfortable and spacious lobby, very helpful staff. Parking space in front of the hotel. Clean rooms, good facilities, there's frankly nothing that we ca complain about, especially that we had a good deal for the rooms.

The breakfast was was acceptable but could use more imagination.
Reasonable price and were very helpful and knowledgeable - not a typical hotel more like a pensione like i found in Europe (east /west) when I was traveling in the 1980's

We arrived late due to car problems, were really tired and our minds were elsewhere. Really we cannot evaluate this hotel.

Breakfast could have a little more variety. And charging for tea bags and coffee during the day seemed a little odd to me. Not a huge problem though.
The staff here are best thing about Sydney. The rooms are very spacious and beds very Comfortable. The 2 kitties running around add to the homey feeling of Sydney. Miss you coco ;)

The hotel sent a taxi driver to the airport to collect us and he waited for nearly 2 hours for us as our baggage did not arrive. A good restaurant was recommended and we were helpfully connected with another traveller by the staff.

We just spend 6 days in Amman and stayed in Sydney Hotel. We enjoyed the time there a lot. Tarek and his crew are very nice, they always tried to fulfill our wishes. The beds are very comfortable. We just recommend this place!

The people (and two house cats Coco and Boogey) really make your time here amazing. They are so nice and willing to help guests with anything they need, including information on how to get around the city and to other places in Jordan. I stayed in the dorm and it was very clean and the bed was actually really comfortable. I used the airport pickup and I am really glad I did, the driver was waiting for me even though my flight came in in the middle of the night and was very kind (and from the prices I heard that people paid for taxis, this was much cheaper)! I can't recommend the service enough, the people here are very welcoming and I made me feel much better about my transition to Amman.

The bathroom smelled a bit funny and the shower is pretty basic, however it was fine for us as we weren't expecting luxury accommodation at this price!
The staff were very friendly and helpful and we enjoyed spending time in the shared living room chatting to them and other guests. They also have two very cute cats! We needed to change money when we arrived and the hotel gave us a very good exchange rate. The room was comfortable enough but fairly basic and the bathroom is quite small. It was good value for the price.

I felt like home. It is a simple, friendly clean place located in the heart of old downtown Amman and 10 minutes walk from the amusing rainbow street. The sitting hall is a gatheing from all around the world which makes you know new people and talk to them easily. The 2 persian cats add much amusement to the place. I loved it and would recommend it to any budget or solo traveller.

-Friendly atmosphere, felt at home, as cliche as it may sound! - Probably the best bed I ever had... Super comfortable, super big (I asked for king size) - Rooms are super clean, room service is great - Nice courtyard at the back of the hotel! - Possibility to make laundry - Strategic location, walking distance to Rainbow Street and downtown (Jafra, Habiba, Al Qods...) -Dia & Tareq are truly amazing! Not to mention Boogie the cat... In a few words, I loved it all!

A wonderful stay with very hospitable & helping staff. It is walking distance from most of attractions in Amman, clean & hygienic. The staff is actually like your friend in a foreign land who provides appropriate guidance for your travel needs at cheapest possible price. Overall, I would recommend this place to anyone who is looking for a place which is 'Perfect value for money' in Amman !!!

The building as a whole and many of the dorms feel very old and even a bit rundown from previous owners, but the current owners seem to work hard at fixing it and keeping it clean.
Very central location, and on a rather quiet stretch of street too. Large common area with a warm cozy feeling. Good breakfast. Excellent staff. Well managed.
