InterContinental Jordan, Amman 

Central and cosmopolitan

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.

  • Board

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.
