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.

  • Very interesting historic museum I really recommend you designate a whole day for this museum and bring the kids and let them be educated and have a good time this museum contains a lot of art and sculptures made of stone as well as poetry dating back to ancient times there also nearby restaurants .
  • The museum display all the arts and other (Stone, Sculpture, Bones, Pottery,...) from the ancient decades who lived in Jordan (Romans,Greeks, Stone Age, Modern Stone Age, Bronze Age). The Museum worth a visit followed a walk trip to the downtown. estimated time spent in the museum (2-3) Hours.
  • A well presented museum with a good travelling exhibition space. This was about Ibn Bin Haytham when we visited, the father of optical science. The permanent exhibits are well worth a visit too and include the oldest human figurines ever found. Highly recommended
  • Actually quite impressive! Take a walk through millions of years of human development in the region, with artifacts from civilizations along the way. Good fun.
  • How much does the enter museum cost? I put five stars if you answer my question!
