Al-Fanar Palace Hotel3.5 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
The Al Fanar Palace hotel has several disadvantages. First of all, the location on a main road, then the poor quality of the restaurant (the space itself and the food). We had a room with the WC which were not working and with plenty of water going on the ground of the bathroom. All in all, to avoid.
Stayed here at beginning and end of holiday in Jordan. Totally different room each time, the first was tired and tatty, with awful noise from nearby main road, and the smallest shower I have ever seen. On my return I was amazed to be in a very luxurious suite with kingsize bed and very smart décor. Breakfast was variable, staff didn't seem to be able to put out everything you would want, eg cereal but no milk, juice but no glasses. Dinner buffet was lukewarm. They do not serve alcohol. (There is a reasonably priced liquor store down the road, and an expensive one across the road, but the hotel did not want us to drink at the dinner table - even discreetly). Staff were welcoming, porters helpful. Public areas are very noisy, weddings, dancing, conferences, football on TV, you name it, so not a peaceful place at all.
Decent hotel. Breakfast is okay, not to fancy, there are western and traditional jordan options. Room is clean, but somewhat outdated. There isn't much to see and do. It's a good hotel to stay the night. The personnel is friendly but speaks little English.
The hotel is on a busy main road in Amman. It has 8 floors and is classed as a 4star hotel. I stayed at this hotel twice on my trip. The rooms were reasonably spacious, and I was lucky enough to get a kingsize bed on both occasions. The first room seemed "tired" looking, and the bathroom in particular had a few damaged bits. The second room was much better, and I think this is down to either the hotel being redecorated, or maybe the fact that on the second stay I was on the eighth floor, which had a conference room and looked more like it was for businessmen. None of the rooms have tea making facilities in them. The breakfast I was not very impressed with, not really what I would call a continental breakfast. The evening meal was a bit better, with a choice of food, all served buffet style. The only criticism I had here, was that some of the food was only lukewarm at best. They do not serve alcohol in this hotel. There is free wifi which worked okay all over the hotel. This is a good base for exploring the city and surrounding areas.
Again this year we came to this hotel for a long stay and we confirm our appreciation for the organization of the cleaning, the meal service and the reception. Conveniently located to the interests of tourists and other types of travelers, it has a large and elegant lobby. Very functional shower and air conditioning in the rooms. Ethnically interesting are the wedding parties for scenes, music and folk dances. We heartily thank the staff for their professionalism and friendliness, especially Mrs. Nabeela and Mr. Rida of the reception, the Head of the dining room Mr. Anas, the technician Mr. Rami and the Master Chef Mr. Radwan. Special thanks to the Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Ibrahim, a young person with remarkable personality and charm. Tiziana & Kamal

This is the first time I stayed in Amman for long period ( two weeks), and my cousin advised me this hotel is very good and she was absolutely right I'm so happy and my kids too. It's a good location, clean, good food and services also all staff are friendly and nice specially the reception Mr. Rida and Mrs Nabila. And Mr. Anas at the restaurant. You feel like home with your family and friends. Definitely I will choose this hotel next time. Thank you all .

We went there for a family wedding the service was good ... DJ music very noisy and not organized ... Buffet set up needs improvement , the salad's variety very poor and not fresh , hot food as well , dessert need more improvement, The cleanliness especially toilets also needs more attention.
The hotel is nice, nothing wrong with it, location is prime, hotel lobby and restaurant also good. It is a busy place though. It is a very popular hotel. And it was even worse that night. there was a wedding when we arrived, on May 17, the tour bus could not even get in the parking to unload our luggage, we had to wait almost 45 minute to get our luggage in the in the lobby, the lobby was crowded, we had to elbow our way in to get the keys. Then one of the two elevators was down, huge line up at the working one.There is a small bar in the lobby, but they dont have change, we had to charge costs on our room and we paid in the morning we had the same problem, no change to dollars, so make sure you have local money to avoid further delays. Restaurant was nice, good dinner and breakfast, very large selection. Clean and neat. It is on a main street, it is loud in the night time but A/C is working good. Our room was facing the parking, better, less exposed to the busy street. Over all a good stay ignoring the check in issues due to the wedding.
