Atallah's house is lovely, with a stunning view. He is a fantastic host and cooked us a delicious meal for an extra 10JD each. The flat is very large and has good wifi. The bedroom is quite comfortable, but at night there is a lot of noise from dogs and donkeys. I would recommend…

I can not recommend Atallah's place more! Definitely skip the usual tourist spots in Wadi Musa and stay with Atallah in Um Sayhoon! My top reasons are: 1. Atallah's place is really well situated and walkable from the back exit to Petra (if you have your ticket in advance, you ca…

Fantastic place! My 5-person party was very comfortable at Atallah's. He and his family were warm and welcoming. Breakfast was perfect and they were flexible with the timing and our schedule. We took Abed's (a family member of Atallah's) offer to give us an all-day tour of Petra,…
