An Enchanted Old World Experience
You can't find a better place for exploring the streets of "the Mosaic City" than Queen Ayola Hotel, located in the heart of Madaba where exotic encounters and Arabian adventures are literally knocking at your door. From St. George's Church of the Mosaic Map to the Church of St. John the Baptist and the Roman Citadel on which it rests, Madaba's main attractions are less than a 5 minute walk away.
While maintaining that "enchanted old world" feel in our hotel, we have designed our rooms with comfort, cleanliness, and cost in mind. We strive to meet the expectations of our Western clientele with clean rooms, modern conveniences, and comfortable accommodations while keeping our prices affordable for even the most budget-conscious backpacker. You can find descriptions of room features and pictures on the "Accommodations" page.
The ground floor of the hotel houses one of Madaba's finest restaurants for authentic Jordanian cuisine. Open to the public, this is an excellent place to meet locals and travelers alike while enjoying the comfortable atmosphere and relaxing after a long day of exploration.
The Authentic Experience
Because of its central location (closer to Queen Alia Airport than Amman itself), Madaba is a great place to start exploring Jordan. Prices are lower than larger cities like Aqaba and Amman, and there is still plenty to see.
To better serve our clientele, our drivers and staff speak English and Arabic. If you're looking for a guide, we arrange customized tours in English, Russian, Italian, French, German or Spanish.
So you're a Backpacker...
Yeah, we get it; you want an authentic experience, not to be herded around with a group of people you don't know. Maybe you should ask about our private drivers / guides. You can pick where you want to go; your trip will be private; and you'll pay about what you would for the most affordable group tours in Madaba.
