                        6.6

                        Location Cleanness Comfort inside room

                        Overall service ( you feel that customer is not first !) Value of money

                      • Couple
                        7.8

                        the premium room was soooo good it felt like home

                        i didn't like the long line waiting for the check-in , there was no desk for check in which i think it gives more privacy and makes u more comfortable .. and the loby wasn't so clean ..

                      • Single
                        8.2

                        Pleasant surroudings, happy attitude of the staff. They seemed to be very willing to help, to make the stay more enjoyable.

                        The lack of choice of food. Maybe because the main restaurant was closed for a function on the only daythta I wanted to have lunch at the hotel

                      • Single
                        8.8

                        The Executive Floor service is excellent.

                        Food quality is poor for an Intercontinental 5* hotel!

                      • Group of friends
                        7.4

                        The biggest problem with this hotel is that there is no non-smoking floor, just non-smoking rooms which is not that helpful when someone next to your room is smoking, serious problem for a 5 star hotel

                      • Group of friends
                        10.0

                        I thought the rooms and facilties were excellent.

                        I was very unhappy with the service offered by the beauty salon - whilst the actual service (leg wax) was good, I was not advised that the hotel would charge an additional fee for using a service that was paid out separately. I also thought that the salon staff were quite poor in communicating what they could offer, when they could offer it, and how much it would cost.

                        The rooms had a terrible smell that was coming from the sewers and the hotel management did no effort to solve the problem, buffet breakfast was nothing to talk about and the breakfast area was poorly ventilated that you would practically wear your food on you!!

                        the location was ideal, and the staff were friendly & the rooms were modern and stylish,

                        The Intercontinental hotel in Amman was awesome! The rooms were recently renovated with impressive finishes (marble bathrooms, lcd screen etc). We had 2 young kids (under 12 so no charge for them) & we chose 2 single beds which proved comfortable enough for sharing (in South Africa we classify it as a Double bed). Tea/cofffee making facillities is a non negotiable with young kids (one reason I selected Intercontinental over Kempinski Hotel). The Hotel also provides complimentary bottled water which is replenished daily. We particularly enjoyed the use of the the free facillities in the spa (including indoor pool, jaccuzi, steam room & sauna) which is open until 11pm. Amman is central & not to be missed attractions include Jerash (45 min drive), Dead sea (1 hour),Hot springs (20 mins from Dead sea), Petra (2.5 hours), Baptism site (1 hour), Mount Nebo (1 hour), Madaba/city of Mosaics (1 hour) etc. Taxi is the favoured way to get around but there are buses available. For longer journeys such as Petra always negotiate with taxi drivers for a better deal. The driver waits for you until you finish your excursion. You will need a full day in Petra. Be weary that taxi drivers take you to the most expensive shops along the way as they get a commission should you decide to buy something.There are military check points along the way to most tourist sites & you get asked for your passport so always keep it in your possesion.There are several shopping malls & notable ones include Mecca mall and the adjoining one (can't remember name). A metered taxi ride will cost 2-3 Dinars from Intercontinetal Hotel to the mall. I travelled in March which is a great time to visit as its the end of winter so the weather was perfect. This was the first time I used Booked.net so I was slightly nervous but I won't hesitate recommending this site to anyone who is looking for a great deal!

                        I was quoted a slightly higher amount upon check-in but I produced my Booked.net confirmation & this slight hiccup was immediately resolved.

                        If you get a room by the pool and you see them setting up for a wedding in the evening ask for a different room right away.

                        Very clean.I slept well.The staff were nice and cooperative.

                        I checked regarding money exchange and I find out that the rate at the hotel was not at all matching with the local markets and banks.(Saudi reyals versus Jordanian Dinars)

                        The rooms are very comfortable and modern, same for the bathrooms - both the standard rooms and the suites. We were upgraded.

                        Smoking in the restaurants was a problem (but I suspect this is the same for all hotels in Jordan).

                        A good amount of lobby space with chairs for sitting, working, etc. The location to rainbow street and downtown is not bad.

                        I couldn't get the internet modem in my room to work, the curtains in the rooms were slightly broken and difficult to slide closed, and the aircon/heater unit made an annoying high whistling noise. When I first arrived the handle of my door fell off, but it was fixed the next day. There were not enough people working at the front desk relative to the demand on their time - needing any small assistance (e.g. getting change for a large bill) often required a significant wait. Its not out of the standard for international business hotels, but 17JD for 24 hours internet is a lot, there should at least be a more cost-effective weekly rate. Unless you pay for the breakfast buffet, there is no food available until 11:30 except room service.
