“Good hotel - but not 5*”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 April 2012

Arrived late at night/early morning and wanted to go straight to bed. Did not get the twin room I had booked, and had to bring in an extra bed at 0330 in the morning. Room was spacious with a nice view from the 14th floor - minibar, safe etc. Never tried the breakfast, but the lounge was efficient and expensive, and the bar, Traders Vic, was nice but expensive. Not the best of locations, but everything is a 2dinar taxi ride away (max 2 - 2,50 euro)

We stayed here March 27, 2012 with a group of 38 Canadians. Service was pleasant and efficient at Reception & average in the Dining Room. The food on the other hand was good. All in the group were happy with their rooms.

I see variety of opinions in the other reviews, but our stay in May 2009 was most enjoyable, and we would return. Efficient and welcoming check-in, fast bellman services to our room on one of the upper floors (with great views), good food in regular restaurant and excellent in Trader Vic's. Room was spacious, clean and with upscale amenities.

Room Tip: Higher floors have interesting views of busy Amman.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 February 2012

The Regency palace in Amman Jordan is one of the oldest five stars hotels in town. Its surely not a five star service. Previously the Sheraton, the regency is still welcoming its guests with an ambiance and decoration dating from the eighties. You feel how old it is, how used, how dull with no background music around the lobby. You feel the broken things all around you and the old brown wood decorations. Yes, it is a great choice for the price you are paying compared with other five star hotels around the city.

What I didn't like:
- Aggressive, unprofessional or untrained staff.
- smoking is permitted everywhere without any control. In the morning prepare yourself for a smoky breakfast.
- no interactive TV
- no fruit basket in the room
- very bad breakfast choice, no fruits at all, no cheese, but a wide choice of bread, croissant and viennoiseries. You light eaters out there, that's not your preferred spot.
- No preparation of the beds and rooms at night, even though it's a must for a five star.
- service is very slow and not up to a five stars standard

What I appreciated:
- I love the bath water pressure.
- Traders Vic's restaurant is a nice place.
- lovely view from the pool on the 20th and the gym on the 19th

As an overall review, for the price, i will book a room again on my next visit making sure to avoid smoking rooms and smoking people as they are really annoying inside the hotel.
