The place is located in a very quiet neighborhood of Amman. It is near major attractions like the Roman Amphitheater,The Citadel, the Blue Mosque and downtown Amman. It is also covered by good transport network that takes to all over the country.
I can't recommend Rajal highly enough as a host - he made our stay in Jordan enjoyable in so many ways, from showing us round the local neighbourhood in Amman to inviting us for a drink on Christmas Eve and arranging a hire car for us. Even though we only stayed in Amman at the beginning of our trip, Rajal kept in touch with us to make sure we were OK until we went home 10 days later.
The apartment we were in was great - a comfy bed with lots of blankets and a heater in the room (staying in December meant it was cold at night). A nicely equipped little kitchenette - complete with kettle and teabags - but Jordanian streetfood is so good we didn't use it much. Impeccably clean with a great view over the city and it was good not to be staying in the Downtown area which is quite congested in terms of traffic.
Anyone who wants a true taste of Jordanian hospitality and culture should definitely contact Rajal.
Location: Rajai's apartment building is located very close to the Blue Mosque in the Abdali/Jebel Hussein area of Amman. It is in a quiet, leafy neighborhood with restaurants and shopping a short walk away. Downtown Amman can be easily accessed by share taxi (route 9). It is a 4 min ride and costs 35piastres per person. The JETT bus office from where buses leave for various parts of Jordan is a 5 min walk from the apartment while the North and South bus stations are short taxi rides away.
The apartment: We stayed in a comfortable, well-ventilated and well-furnished 2 room apartment with its own bathroom. The living room had a kitchen space with a kettle, fridge, hot-plate and sink. Admittedly, with so many cheap and excellent meal options available, we did not use any of them except the kettle for tea! We did also notice an air-conditioner in the living room but didn't feel the need for it. There are other such apartments in the building, and en-suite rooms as well. There is lift access to each of the 4 (?) floors and a young Syrian lad stays on the premises as a caretaker. At the moment wired internet is not available but this was not a problem because Rajai provided us with an Internet stick. There is also a shop nearby where one could buy this and a Jordanian SIM card (very useful) for about 10 JD each.
The hosts: Rajai and his family live in a lovely house just a 2 min walk from the apartments and are at hand for help and advice. My wife and I were overwhelmed by their kindness and generosity. If you are lucky you might be invited to their house for a cup of tea (or three - this is the Middle East!) and goodies. Their wealth of knowledge and information about Jordan and the region was invaluable to us. Rajai is a master at coaxing/ charming/bullying really cheap deals out of taxi drivers ("He kills these guys!" as his lovely wife Abir says..) but is happy to suggest public transport options if you are on a budget. As he would say in his own inimitable and reassuring way, "Today I will send you to Jerash by mini-bus." Jordan is a wonderful country to visit anyway and if you want a comfortable holiday with lots of local flavour, insightful discussions on the complex religio-politics of the region (talk to their son Hasem for an educated youth's view of how things are in Jordan) and a bit of humour and eccentricity - Rajai bundled us into his car for a critical tour of the affluent neighborhoods - then a stay at Arabia Suites is highly recommended.
We stayed at one of Rajai's apartments for 2 nights. The apartment may not be the one in the pictures, but it is a clean and big place. The experience staying with Rajai though was just wonderful. We met his whole family and actually ended up spending quite a bit of time at their house for different reasons. His son, Hazem, even helped us find a rental car, while Rajai negotiated a great price for us over the phone!
I highly recommend staying with Rajai.
