3   Great location Dana Tower is definitely no hotel. It is a very basic hostel. The rooms are small and poorly equipped (no heating). In November it was quite cold. It scores with its location. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The owner is also very friendly but also business-minded.There are many tours offered, some of them are really adventurous. Breakfast is basic but the dinner is really great.  , age 53, Germany ()
5   Great place to stay in Dana It was a great place to stay when in Dana -- friendly staff, amazing views of the valley and many different trekking options around! Clean rooms and excellent food were provided too.  , Spain ()
5   Very hospitable staff Situated in the remote Dana Village, Dana Tower Hotel is the highest building that offers a great view. The rooms are comfortable and the curator is extremely sweet and helpful. He arranged for a taxi to pick us from Petra at a subsidized rate and he arranged for transportation out to Amman too. Dinner and breakfast were good (expensive but justified for the location) and he also offered us complementary sheesha (hookah). Down the mountain from the hotel you can enter the reserve through a back door without paying any entry fee. But it's at one end of the reserve so you would have to walk a lot to get anywhere. Water and cold drinks are available. If you want any other snacks it is advised to take them along.  , age 23, Indian ()

5   Very nice experience We stayed in this hotel just for a night, but we were treated like in a family. We cannot Recommend it enough for a peaceful stay in this natural reserve among friends from all over the world.  , italian ()
5  We stayed a couple of nights at this hostel. It was really the friendliest place we stayed in Jordan (and our experience of most places there was good). We were constantly being offered tea (at no extra price!) and they really went out of their way to make us welcome. This place is not five star accommodation but that is reflected in the price. It was clean and the food was plentiful and good. We had a great stay there!  ()
5  If you are in the area and stranded (as can sometimes happen in Jordan!) the owner Nabil will probably come pick you up. He's really helpful and fun. I think that if you coordinate ahead of time he'll even send someone to pick you up from Petra. Dana Tower Hotel is REALLY BEAUTIFUL. It's in an old Bedouin mud building with walls filled with posters and trinkets from guests' travels. And it's probably the best, most relaxed place I stayed at in Jordan. The staff are always helpful, the price is good, about 4 JD [Jordanian Dinar] I think it was. But watch out, because the food is great and meals add up. (In the end, for two nights and a few meals, we ended up paying around 30 JD). It's pretty much the only place to eat locally, so bring your own food or be prepared to pay (really though, it is delicious). The place is neat, and the staff are always cleaning something but it's in an old building and it's a dusty place so there's always the odd spider and streak of dirt, especially with so many people who stay there hiking in the area. But I assume if you're traveling in Jordan you're not looking for pristine accommodations. The hotel is a one-minute walk to a back entrance (and therefore free entrance) to the nature reserve. But if you get a chance you should loop back up to the official Dana Reserve hotel, which is on your right down a driveway just up the hill from the Dana Tower Hotel, to pay the fee. The money is important for the upkeep of the place and the Bedouin families that live there. Most, if not all, families have moved out of the small town leaving dozens of small homes abandoned so there really isn't much there to see or do (besides the reserve which is really beautiful). But if you make plans to get out of the area early in the morning the staff can help you with rides and routes. So that's pretty much it. I only wish I had stayed more days here, and had known about it when I was visiting Petra. I stayed in Wadi Mousa, but this place was much better and as I mentioned they'll come pick you up.  ()
