Jordan for cheap

2010 octobre 2

On my scale: pretty expensive country.


1JD = 1.1€


Visa (Fr): 10 JD / 11.1 €

cigarettes: 0.900 JD / 1 €. King-size only.

humus: 0.500 JD / 0.55 €

sandwich: 0.250 JD / 0.30 €

beer : 2 to 3 JD / 2.20 to 3.30 € [during Ramadan. Must be cheaper otherwise]

Internet cafe (1h) (in Amman): 3 JD / 3.30 €


Accomodation:

- Amman:

Abbasi Palace Hotel: 6 to 8 JD / 6.60 to 8.80 €. Dormitory (but most of time you are alone :) ), inc. breakfast , Internet access, lovely personnel.

Cliff Hotel: 3JD / 3.30 €. Rooftop, Internet access during half of the day, lovely personnel.

- Petra:

Valentine Inn Hotel: 4 JD / 4.4 €. Rooftop, unsane, Internet access, be careful:very cheaty people.

- Madaba:

Madaba Hotel: 7 JD / 7.7 €. Rooftop, inc. breakfast, Internet acces, helpful personnel.

- Ramtha (Jerash) :

“The very only one hotel of Ramtha”: 10 JD / 11€, maybe less. Single room, inc. breakfast, swimming pool in summer maybe?, helpful people.


Others :

Buses are quite cheap in Jordan. Everything else is expensive, especially touristic places access (Petra was 40€, and prices were about to raise; if you want to get in for free, check this link, in French). And everything is more expensive in Petra : cigarettes, sandwiches, food…

You’ll easily find an Internet connections in hotels.

A good place to eat in Amman is Hashem Restaurant, front of the Cliff Hotel. One of the best of Middle East in fact, but also cheap.


This is just a feedback from my experience. If you got some usefull tips, share it in the Comments !

    And what about the restaurant called « Al Qods », in the old « city center ». Does it still exist ? The « Mencef » used to be marvellous….

    I haven’t been to those places, but I have heard about the Al Quds falafels :). It seemed that it was still open last August!
