Where to stay in Amman

Amman accommodations sit at all points on the spectrum, and you'd expect nothing less from a capital as diverse and eclectic as this. The more budget-friendly options, in the form of simple hotels, guesthouses, and hostels, lie predominantly in the downtown area, with the narrow, maze-like streets housing countless accommodations around each corner and over each hill. If you're looking for something a little more luxurious and with calmer surroundings, then the business districts to the northeast represent the best places to look, with high-rise chain hotels jostling for position along the main shopping streets and next to scenic parks and plazas.
