Art Hotel Downtown represents a new concept in hospitality based on style and art as well as honesty and transparency.
Located in the historic center of Amman, capital city of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, Art Hotel does away with trite catchy slogans and tourist traps. We provide straight forward, no nonsense but stylish accommodation at reasonable rates. We not only guarantee price transparency in all transactions but, in an effort to simplify price discovery, we also guarantee that we endeavor to whittle down the number of charges to the fewest possible.
Also, at Art Hotel you are allowed to purchase food and drink from outside vendors. You can of course purchase food and drink items from hotel outlets and we guarantee our prices will be comparable to those of any retail store in the area.
Art Hotel is the creation of Ammar Khammash and Omar Zumot. Ammar of course is one of the Kingdom’s prominent architects with interests that span archeology, history, art, music, poetry and geology to mention but a few. Omar is a successful entrepreneur best known for having single handedly revived the wine industry in the Hashemite Kingdom. St George wines have won accolades in blind tastings in France, Germany and Japan.
Art Hotel aims to, at once, contribute to the revival of Amman’s historic center and offer visitors a comfortable and stylish base whence to share in the daily life of Jordanians and explore the historic city center. We are located at the foot of the Citadel, in the former Islamic Bank building, across the street from Amman’s iconic Hashem’s Restaurant, 300m from the Husseini mosque and 800m from the Roman amphitheater. From our hotel you can easily walk up to the Citadel to the East or to Rainbow Street to partake in Amman’s night life to the West.
At Art Hotel we can also put you in touch with a reliable provider of airport transfers and extra urban tours at competitive rates. Once again, we do not take a fee for this service hence the reason airport transfer and tours are competitive

Located as we are, smack bang in the middle of down town, parking is not easy. There are solutions however. One option is to make use of the two multi level parking lots located 400m on either side of the hotel. Alternatively, you could try your luck finding street parking in the street behind the hotel.
Another possibility is to park your car at the top of "Kalha" stairs by Darat El Fununu (refer to map available on our web site as well as on the "Notes" section on our main Facebook page).
Your final option, should you choose to go that way, would be to do what is technically illegal, but is nonetheless done by all and sundry, and park along the main street in front of Art Hotel.
