The Mussa Spring Hotel in Petra, Jordan, has recently undergone a comprehensive renovation, ensuring that our guests can enjoy comfortable and updated budget accommodations. We take pride in being your top choice among Petra hotels. With a history dating back to the Old Testament, Petra holds a special place in the hearts of many.

According to local legend, the prophet Moses, as mentioned in the Old Testament, approached Mount Edom after forty years in the desert. It is said that in the hills just above Petra, God commanded Moses to provide water for his people by speaking to a rock (Exodus 17). However, Moses struck the rock instead, and from it, the spring known as Ain Mussa (Spring of Moses) gushed forth. Today, this spring is housed beneath a striking building with three white domes at the eastern entrance to Petra, which serves as a symbol of this miraculous event.

Our hotel, situated at this historic location, has been welcoming tourists to this magnificent site for an impressive 29 years. Our dedicated staff is proficient in English, French, German, and, of course, Arabic. We are proud to mention that Mussa Spring Hotel comes highly recommended by renowned travel guidebooks in various languages, including Lonely Planet, Let’s Go, Guide de Routard, Rough Guide, Frommer’s, Michelin, and more.

We offer a variety of 22 guest rooms, including single, double, and triple accommodations, all featuring private western-style toilets and showers, satellite TV with an extensive movie selection that includes classics such as ‘Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade’ and ‘Lawrence of Arabia,’ telephone services, central heating, and 24-hour hot water. Additionally, we provide daily complimentary shuttle services to and from the Petra gate (Ain Mussa) for your convenience.”
