Rae´d Hotel has good prices and simlilar services to those much more expensive in Aqaba.
My room was very clean and comfortable, good sleep quality even in a Friday nigth in Aqaba downtown. Breakfast very good and varied.
If someone goes to Aqaba for diving no need to book at those hotels near the south beach were are the best diving points as the dive facilities provide transportation from the hotel area to these sites.
Near this hotel we can find everything, shops good reastaurants, fastfood chains, archeologic sites, etc.
Good service , good price, excelent location. A good hotel to stay in Aqaba.

We didn't have a good experience at this hotel during our four-night stay while we were in Aqaba to dive. I'll start with the positives: Great location right in the heart of town, clean and spacious bedroom, ample and tasty included breakfast buffet. Very inexpensive.

Our hotel was booked here as part of a dive package, which offered various hotel options and this was the cheapest one.

We asked for a no-smoking hotel room. What we got was a hotel suite (foyer with adjoining bathroom and bedroom as separate rooms) with an ash tray and the smell of smoke. Asking to move to another non-smoking room the next day yielded us a similar room, one floor up, with an ash tray and the smell of cleaner to cover up the smell of smoke. We gave up asking.

The bathroom floor flooded with one-inch deep water each time we either took a shower or filled up the sink with water. We asked them to check the drain in the bathroom multiple times. The problem was never resolved. Again, we gave up asking. At least the bathroom wasn't connected to the bedroom, so we could just close the door and ignore it.

However one day, the top sheet of our king-sized bed was too short for the bed. It only covered half of it. (It was like a twin sheet turned sideways.) When we asked for replacement sheet, the attendant returned with a sheet the same size. When again, we asked for a replacement sheet, the attendant returned with a king-sized sheet that was wet. When yet again, we asked for a replacement sheet, he finally got it right.

Actually the bedding, each day we returned from diving, was different. One day it had a bed spread. The next two days it didn't (just a blanket). One day the towels were rolled up into a heart, the next day into a swan with a fake flower. No complaint here, just kind of comical really.

Given how inexpensive and well located this hotel is, I would like to recommend it. But i can't.

Room Tip: Get a room with a bathroom that doesn't flood.

--Upon first arriving, found a very large cockroach alive in the bathroom. They killed it, but I didn't feel comfortable after that. As a result of the cockroach incident, the manager of the hotel offered two different rooms: one a triple and one a King; both were underwhelming. But he would NOT offer us a refund and confirmed that he would charge our CC, if we left the hotel. Does that sound like a threat? We decided to stay in the room that had the large cockroach.
--The hotel's Internet access was slow and worked intermittently; but it barely had one bar for the strength of the wifi.
--Although the bed spreads looked filthy, overall the place appeared to be clean.
--Maybe most importantly, the A/C worked and it worked well.
--The bed was okay, but if you get a triple, the third bed will be an uncomfortable futon.
--There's a nice sized dorm room like refrigerator.
--The breakfast was okay.
--The proximity of the hotel to other hotels, restaurants and walking to the public beachfront is ideal.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the sea.

My friend and I stayed in the Raed for two nights and it worked out ideally for us. We didn't spend much time in the hotel, as we were out all day diving and in Petra. However the hotel was clean, very well located, breakfast was good and the room was well sized. The only complaint was that the shower was a bit weak and the water wasn't very warm. However when the temperature is 35 degrees then a lukewarm shower is a joy!

My girlfriend and I stayed at the Rae'd Hotel Suites (RHS) as part of a deal organised with Dive In Aqaba. We stayed for four nights and were impressed with the hotels cleanliness and quality of the room we had. The bedroom was large and had a good view of the Red Sea. The bathroom was perfectly adequate and the inclusion of a decent sized fridge was an added bonus. Breakfast was plentiful and tasty, just what was needed prior to a days diving.

The only slight distraction was noise at night, however I think this would be apparent at all of the hotels in this area.

We would happily return and recommend it to friends.
