Jordan's capital city, Amman spreads across 19 hills and includes many distinct districts, each with their own historical and cultural marvels. The topography of the city adds to the sense of eclecticism and discovery, with hidden areas and surprises lying out of sight and ready to be explored. With Roman ruins, grand souks, a plethora of atmospheric mosques, and a mix of suburban leafiness and downtown liveliness, the city offers plenty to fascinate those who pass through. While trips to Amman may start as refueling stops before embarking on a journey through the wider region, but they tend to develop into an experience all of their own. With our world travel planner, Jordan vacations can be built around trips to Amman and other destinations in Jordan.

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.
