- Unless you are tax exempted, as of January 2014 Sales Tax must be added
- As of March 1st, 2014 we must regretfully increase room rates to compensate for recent increases in energy and food cost
- We only have two rooms registered with Airb&b but we have 10 rooms available. Always a good idea to check with us regarding availability even if the calendar shows we are fully booked. Room rate varies according to single or double occupancy with a maximum occupancy of 2 guests per room.
- This is not a hotel
Guests may assume this is a hotel because we have so many rooms available. But this is hour home. Other than the building number,there are no external signs, billboards or blinking neon arrows indicating our building offers residential accommodation.
- NOTA BENE: If you are making a reservation on behalf of a third party you must state so clearly in the correspondence. We reserve the right to decline to host a person that arrives at our door whom is not the person we have been communicating with.
DO PAY ATTENTION:
- When making your way to us, remember that despite the existence of street names, in Jordan nobody uses addresses; least of all taxi drivers. Please do not roam the vicinity of our residence asking people in the street (or, worse still, the Tourist Police station located on our street) where the "hotel" is. This is not a hotel and if you intend on catching a cab from the airport to come to our location, for the same rate of JD20 we suggest you allow us to send you a taxi from our partner office here in Amman. In order to arrange a transfer with our partner office, forward your flight details to us three days prior to your arrival.
- We provide non smoking, environmentally and pet friendly Residential Accommodation ideal for medium to long term stays. Included in the lease we offer rather comfortable rooms and showers and a significant degree of security and privacy that only hotels can rival... but we are not a hotel. In fact, this is our home. We live on the ground floor and the guest rooms are on the upper floors. We have several dogs, cats and turtles around the house too.
When staying with us, we also invite you to our family breakfast every day except Friday. Breakfast is varied, cooked to order and includes bacon as too, occasionally and probably too often to be sensible, it includes Bloody Mary. All rooms have private bathrooms, TV, Wi-Fi, fridge, central heating and air conditioning. On the second floor there is a lounge with Wi-Fi, a kitchen with all day tea & coffee making facilities and a dining table so you may prepare your own breakfast on Fridays for example (because we don't offer breakfast on Friday you see). The roof terrace on the third floor is equipped with Wi-Fi, a dining table, sun beds, a rowing machine as well as some free weights and mats for guests to exercise in the open air. On Monday evenings at 7pm, guests can join yoga sessions on the roof with Reem. Please note we don't serve breakfast on Friday.
For an unexpected surprise, ask us about Jordanian wine.
Our home is located in Jabel Webdeh which by Jordanian standards is a "historic" neighborhood dating, as it does, from the 1950s.
-Jabel Webdeh is currently undergoing a revival. Our building is adjacent to the Italian embassy and is located 200m from the French Cultural Center and is within walking distance of the two most prominent art galleries in Amman: The Modern Art Gallery and Darat El Funun. Within walking distance are also a handful of cafes, some antiques stores and relatively well stocked convenience stores. Down town is 15min walk away (Husseini Mosque, Hashem Restaurant, Auberge Restaurant, Duke's Diwan, Central Post Office) and the Rainbow Street area is 25min away but there is a steep hill to get there on foot. The Abdali Friday market is a 20min walk away too.
-If you intend to only visit the main sites in Jordan, you will find numerous good tour operators that can arrange visits for you. On the other hand, if you wish to do something different and/or more active we can arrange the following activities:
ACTIVITIES / RUNNING / MARATHONS / SKY DIVING
We can arrange a wine tasting of the local St. George wine that have won several gold, silver and bronze medals in prestigious blind tastings in Tokyo, Berlin and Paris.
If you enjoy running, you can join me on Friday morning and one or two other times during the week for short 8 to 12 Km runs around town. For Trail Running enthusiasts, there are two unmissable events yearly. There is the Full Moon Desert Marathon in May, and the Mad Dog Desert Marathon in August and we can guarantee entry in all of them.
We also organize an annual sky diving meet in February/March look us up at Flashback Adventures on the web.

Can only repeat what I said earlier: Felt very much at home, loved the uncomplicated yet utmost welcoming and friendly hospitality, the rooftop and the breakfast! Hope, to return soon.
By The Lemon Tree was a great place to stay. It's a beautiful house with excellent facilities, a lovely common area to share with other guests, and delicious breakfast served in the morning. Guido is a great host who goes out of his way to help his guests with things such as airport transport etc. The house is conveniently located in one of Amman's nicest neighbourhoods. Highly recommended.
Nous avons passe la nuit de notre arrivée a Amman chez Guido. Tout s'est très bien déroulé, Guido nous a propose un taxi pour 20JD qui est venu nous chercher a l'aéroport et nous a emmené directement chez lui.
La maison est magnifique, très propre, très moderne. Notre chambre était spacieuse, avec Tv, frigo, grand lit, superbe salle de bain.
La maison est bien placée dans Amman, proche de restaurants et petits commerces.
Petit dej exceptionnel le lendemain matin, préparé par les "nounous" de la maison qui sont adorables.
Vraiment parfait pour prendre des forces et se faire chouchouter avant de partir pour une semaine de périple dans le désert! ;)
Guido's accommodations were top notch and in a great location downtown. If you are staying in Amman, this is the place to be. My girlfriend and I found it really easy to make our way to downtown Amman, the main Amman attractions like the Citadel and Roman Theatre, and popular Amman neighbourhoods like Rainbow Street. The room was clean and spacious and had a great bathroom, and the building has a great terrace and clean and modern common room. Guido was also a really nice guy. Finally, the breakfast was some of the best we had while in Jordan, made to order! You are a fool if you stay anywhere else in Amman!
I live in Webdieh, and rented the room on behalf of my mother and sister who came to visit for a week. We spent 3 nights in Amman (Sunday, Thursday & Friday). The house is amazing, and I can understand how it is well suited to those who are staying for longer than a night or two, as it has all you need to cook and relax. The views from the roof are just lovely. We didn't spend as much time there as other guests probably do, as my apartment is just down the street, but the time we did spend was great. It would have been nice to be there for evening cocktails or another breakfast (breakfast is not served on Fridays, and my family's flight was very early on Saturday morning) in order to really get your money's worth and enhance your stay. I would highly recommend the space for anyone visiting Amman, especially to those that don't have another place to call "home" during their stay.
Something not worth taking a star off for, but worth noting, is that Guido and his family are nice enough to let the numerous stray cats in Amman in and out of their home (the cats are apparently vaccinated and are generally healthy looking). However, for those who may have an allergy or general unease around animals, it's worth knowing in advance that you will not be alone in the common areas!
Great place, close to downtown Amman but in a lovely quiet neighbourhood. Guido and his wife (and guests!) are really welcoming and the place is super clean, with great bathrooms. A very relaxed and beautifully kept place, both of us arrived and left very happy!
I traveled to Amman Jordan for the first time, to visit my daughter at school. Guido arranged for a cab to greet me at the airport at 12:30 a.m. in the morning. Upon my arrival, I was greeted by the driver and taken directly to the home. Wonderful service.
The home is very very clean. It is just a short walk to the markets downtown. Very safe neighborhood. I was provided a fantastic breakfast. Great host. Would highly recommend anyone who visit Amman to stay with Guido.
Thank you Guido
By the Lemon Tree is an absolute gem! The staff and family are welcoming and extremely helpful, and the B&B is clean, quiet, and well-maintained. Guido is very willing to offer advice, assistance, and insights, and I found this particularly helpful as a first-time visitor to Amman. Breakfast is both substantial and delicious. The location offers easy access to numerous small markets and restaurants in the Paris Circle area of Weibdeh.
This is a wonderful place to stay, and I am hoping there will be availability for me to stay here again on my future visits to Jordan.
Very pleasant and comfortable accomodation with an amazing breakfast. Guido and his wife were always very helpfull and you immediately feel as if you are at home.
i enjoyed my stay at By the lemon tree where I was for two nights. Plenty of parking in the neighborhood, but navigating in the neighborhood and generally around Amman requires a GPS and (website hidden) maps is not reliable for city driving there. The house is a short walk from nearby Rainbow Street though the intervening terrain is very steep and hilly making a taxi a better possibility if in a hurry or on a hot day (only 1 or 2 JD). Guido and his wife were excellent hosts, and very welcoming and helpful. Guido Booked my return taxi at 1:30 AM (4am flight) and after I checked out that morning, I was able to come back to the house in the evening and relax all night and chat with some of the other guests in the common area. Guido came by to say goodbye and to confirm my taxi near midnite. The room was excellent, and I felt like I was staying in the master bedroom of a large house. Laundry was in the common area but I didn't use it. The area feels very safe and upscale residential and I felt totally comfortable walking home at night in the dark. There are two friendly cats to keep u company. I would stay there again and recommended to my friends, especially if they are traveling as a couple and dont mind not being directly near a busy street.
