The Pro's of staying at the Le Vendome are its close proximity to downtown Amman, it's quietness and the willingness of the staff to make your stay enjoyable.
Sadly, the Con's are such that it needs a large investment to bring it up to Western standards for a 4 star hotel. Everything that's been said about it being run down with not working or inefficient electrical goods is true. The hairdryer was so scary with its spitting and crackling, I hastily unplugged it as I was sure it would burst into flames.
We were given a suite when we returned at the end of our stay and were made as comfortable as possible, but woefully the lack of amenities doesn't make up for all that is sad about the hotel. We didn't see another guest in the five nights we stayed at the hotel, which in itself is indicative of its decline.
I wish I could recommend it as the staff are lovely, but sadly I can't as it really isn't up to western standards and I'm seriously worried about its standards of safety. More
