Amman, Jordan: ibis Amman, the first internationally branded economy hotel in Jordan, is confident of a stellar 2011. Buoyed by higher than projected occupancy figures since it opened its doors in November 2009 the hotel predicts a stronger and upbeat outlook for the year, in light of Jordan’s growing tourism initiatives.

Pioneering a new benchmark of high quality hotel services in Amman’s thriving hospitality industry, more and more guests now prefer to stay at ibis Amman enjoying our hotel’s impeccable service at the best value for money prices.”

It features 158 perfectly equipped en-suite rooms with large double-beds, high speed wireless internet connection (WIFI), LCD flat-screen TVs and direct-dial phones. To beef up its facilities, the hotel has added a brand new lounge.
