Where to stay in Umm Qais

Visitors come to Umm Qais almost exclusively on day trips, as few accommodations exist in the immediate area. About 125 km (77 mi) to the south, the capital of Amman offers an extensive range of hotels, as well as a good selection of rental apartments that cater to different budgets and tastes. Alternatively, you can explore campsites and guesthouses in the town of Ajloun, about 60 km (37 mi) to the south. If your plans include crossing into Israel or Golan Heights, nearby towns just over the border have rooms and guesthouses.
