These apartments are located in a quiet neighborhood yet very close to major attraction of Amman like Roman Amphitheater, Jordan Museum, Gallery of Fine Art, Blue Mosque, Darat al Funun( The House of Arts) and authentic Amman downtown.
We have a very nice rooftop where a guest can have spectacular view of many parts of Amman, both the old and new parts. We also have car park adjacent to the apartments.
Jett bus station which takes the guest to Petra and Aqaba is only 5 minutes away. Taxis are available round the clock from just outside the apartments. There are also buses to tourists' places like Jerash not very far from the building.
The guest can have access to high speed, unlimited download of WiFi internet. He also can have access to the washing machine, laundry rack and iron.
Interaction with Guests
I like to get to know my guests before they come to my place. If not then I would like to talk to them and invite them for tea,coffee and talk to them about their travel plans.
We expect guests no to smoke inside the apartment, as there is a nice balcony just outside the apartment.
The place was simple yet functional. The area is a bit quiet but close to all the popular areas. I would recommend for a simple, functional stay where you will spend a lot of time outside. Rajai's assistant Ehab is very friendly, accommodating, and helpful.
Très agréable appartement et surtout un accueil simple et chaleureux de la part de mon hôte. Je mes suis senti en totale confiance. C'est sûr que je reviendrai chez arabian suites que je recommande à tous. Quartier calme et agréable. Très facile de rejoindre tous les points d'intérêts de la ville. Merci Rajai.
The host was very friendly and helpful. The apartment is very basic as expected for the price. Overall recommendable.
I rented an Arabian Suites apartment for a month. The host Rajai and the caretaker Ehab were both extremely helpful and hospitable. As I arrived at 2 am, it was marvellous to find Ehab there to open the door and settle me in. Over the following days Rajai not only saw to it that I had everything I needed but invited me to a wonderful breakfast at his home where I met his charming wife and daughter. Later Rajai also took me to lunch at a distinctly Arabian restaurant so I could sample their distinctive and delicious cuisine, then he invited me to accompany him to a furniture and upholstery business in eastern Amman which was both interesting and educational for me considering the work I had come to do in Amman.
During my entire stay both Rajai and Ehab were at pains to make me comfortable and assist me in whatever way they could.
Finally Rajai was a great help when I lost my expensive camera by leaving it in a taxi. He had the loss announced over a local radio station. The camera was eventually retrieved due to the persistent searching by a very honest taxi driver!
The apartment itself was very comfortable, clean, spacious and had everything I needed. I needed only to ask if I lacked anything, for example an ironing board, and it was immediately supplied.
Both Rajai and Ehab were always ready and available to help me with translation into Arabic and with finding places such as a bank, a place to buy a SIM card, a supermarket; to all such places Ehab would accompany me until I knew the way.
I can highly recommend this listing, I had an excellent experience for that month and when I return in September, I hope to have "my old place" back!
Hmmm the review is difficult to write. On the one hand Rajai and Ehad were very helpful. They helped us buy a SIM card, showed us a good cheap local restaurant, organised a car and driver for a day trip out of Amman (Wadi Mujib, Karak and Masada for 70JD although you are likely to get it cheaper if you just negotiate directly with a taxi driver - our driver Muhummod was fantastic though) and gave recommendations for places in downtown Amman to visit. On the other hand we were slightly overwhelmed and annoyed at the insistence to do things, primarily on the first night to visit Rajai at his home to have tea. Despite doing our best to politely decline this offer we were met on our return to the apartments in the evening by Ehad who it appeared was under strict instructions to make us go. We did go and it was lovely to meet Rajai's wife and have tea but the insistence left us feeling annoyed. Also on our day trip to Wadi Mujib which Rajai had organised we, he called at least three times to see how it was going - a bit overkill considering we said how great it was. All this made us feel like we were getting checked on.
Aside from this, the apartments (there are a whole block of them) were located in a nice area particularly if you head up the hill. About 30 minute walk to downtown. Our room was a little dirty - hair in the drain and dirt on the rug - indicating it hadn't been cleaned thoroughly but overall it was fine.
Again a difficult review to write. Some might say great hospitality but for us it was all a little bit too much !
Staying in Raji's apartment was made into a highlight of our trip because of Raji's hospitality. He was exceptionally kind to us and gave up a huge amount of his time to make our trip very unique. On our first evening Raji's caretaker Ahab showed us where to buy a SIM card, helped us with our shopping and ordered food for us in the excellent local restaurant. Our apartment was perfect for us we spent 4 nights. We very much enjoyed meeting Raji's family. Raji was unbelievably kind taking enormous trouble to show us the best of his country. I would strongly recommend staying at Arabian Suites.
