Intercontinental Jordan, Amman


An iconic landmark hotel on one of Amman’s seven hills, within walking distance of the old city centre.

This established hotel is proud to be one of the oldest and largest in the city and oozes old-world charm. Its parchment-colour marble and plush interiors complement Amman’s rich heritage, and the long-standing staff know the city inside out. Its location is convenient at just a short taxi ride from major sights like Amman Citadel or the blue-domed King Abdullah Mosque, and there’s shopping and local dining a leisurely walk away at Rainbow Street and the Friday Market. Just ask the concierge to help plan your route for the day, or take a day trip to the Dead Sea where you can be reaping the benefits of its super-salty waters in an hour.

The hotel’s popularity means there’s usually a lively buzz around the palm-lined pool and bars, although its grand size makes it feel like a calming oasis away from the city’s busy downtown. Try kibbeh dishes in the Lebanese restaurant, Bourj Al Hamam, where fairy light-strewn parasols make up the romantic al fresco area, and head to Cinco De Mayo for themed nights, the buzz of happy hour and flavour-packed Mexican food. The Club InterContinental is an exclusive perk for guests staying in Club rooms and comes with eighth-floor views of the city as you graze on afternoon tea or evening canapés. Club guests can also take a more private breakfast in the Club Lounge and be waited on by dedicated Club staff.

Universally calming colours and dark wood panelling make the rooms a comfortable place to return to after day trips or hours spent exploring Amman’s Roman ruins. Most rooms and suites have city views to take in and Executive Rooms are great for adding extra room – or pick a Club-grade room or suite for access to the Club Lounge and added perks like refreshments throughout the day, afternoon tea and cocktails at happy hour.
