Gay Friendly Hotels Amman Jordan: Top 3 (Updated 2021)

Jordanians are generally very tolerant people and tourists of all orientations are respected as long as local laws and customs are seen to be respected in return. Amman is a fantastic city and even if it’s a muslim country, people are tolerating the foreigner gay couples are there a few gay friendly hotels Essaouira.

Homosexuality is illegal in most Islamic countries in the Middle East, but in Jordan gay sex is legal, and the age of consent is 16. Public displays of affection by heterosexuals are frowned upon, and the same rules apply to gays and lesbians, although same-sex hand-holding is a common sign of friendship in Jordan.

Lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) rights in Jordan are considered to be relatively advanced compared to most other countries in the Middle East.

Same-sex sexual activity was illegal in Jordan under the British Mandate Criminal Code Ordinance (No. 74 of 1936) until 1951 when Jordan drafted its own penal code which did not criminalise homosexuality Homosexual conduct remains legal in Jordan. However, LGBT people displaying public affection can be prosecuted for “disrupting public morality” and most LGBT people face social discrimination not experienced by non-LGBT residents.

Amman, the capital of Jordan, is a modern city with numerous ancient ruins. Atop Jabal al-Qala’a hill, the historic Citadel includes the pillars of the Roman Temple of Hercules and the 8th-century Umayyad Palace complex, known for its grand dome. Built into a different downtown hillside, the Roman Theater is a 6,000-capacity, 2nd-century stone amphitheater offering occasional events.

The lobby already says it all, it’s modern, spacious, impressive, feels luxurious and the staff are friendly and welcoming. The room is spacious and I loved the view, breakfast is high quality and has a huge selection, one of the best breakfasts I have had around the world. The spa/gym is smallish but does it’s job. After staying in six different hotels in Amman, this would be my definite first choice also next time and has given me a great impression on what Rotana has to offer.

The room is very clean and spacious with a great view of Amman. The bathroom has a bathtub and separate shower.

Loved the location just two steps from Amman boulevard , which is one of the nicest area in Amman with shops and restaurants and events.

The rooms are spacious and well laid out with all the amenities you need, the staff are always available to meet your needs should you require any extras! Room service is fast, polite and professional.

We had access to the Club lounge- if you have the choice I would highly recommend opting for it! The standard of service there is beyond impressive! The staff take the time to learn your names and are quick to memorise your preferences- making it feel as though it is a home away from home!

Beautiful, spacious, quiet, comfortable, new, secure…everything you want for your hotel stay. I would rate the rooms 100% faultless. Magnificent view from the 25th floor. Everything you expect is provided in the room for a comfortable stay.

Handy location to shops, including a large Duty Free store very close by.

The hotel is the tallest building in Amman. A 5 star hotel which is modern and contemporary. The architecture of this building is amazing with it curve rooftop. They put me up on the 31st floor which has an impressive view of Amman. The 6th floor had a pool, bar area plus you can walk around the floor 360 degrees. The Rodeo Grill bar on the 4th floor had great food and style too. My room was spacious, modern, contemporary and clean.

The bathroom was luxurious with a separate shower and roll top bath. My only negative to the shower was you had to stand quite close to the wall to get a decent shower considering it is quite spacious inside the cubicle. The breakfast buffet was too a high standard. Plenty to choose from. The staff were friendly and professional in dealing with you. Definitely recommend to anyone who would consider staying here. Families, business clientele, couples or singles too.

2. InterContinental Jordan 5* – Gay Friendly Hotels Amman

InterContinental Jordan
InterContinental Jordan

Combining contemporary facilities with local features, InterContinental offers stylish accommodation in Amman’s Diplomatic Area. It features a palm-fringed pool, a palatial indoor pool and a spa with hot tub and massage treatments.

Fitted with designer furnishings, rooms at InterContinental Jordan are chic and functional. They all include a spacious lounge with seating area, satellite TV channels and deluxe bathrooms with bathtub.

Homemade cakes and pastries in the mornings, snacks during the day and pre-dinner aperitifs are served at the Boulevard Café. The place is fitted with large couches and provides a chance to meet the locals in an informal ambience.

InterContinental Jordan is well-established as the area’s best business hotel, but leisure travellers are equally at home in the deluxe surroundings. Situated atop one of Amman’s seven hills, the hotel is in the heart of the business district, within walking distance of the city centre and a short taxi ride from popular sites such as the Citadel.

This was our first stay in Jordan (and the Middle East) and as a gay couple traveling from the UK, we were a little apprehensive, thus choosing the InterContinental in Amman as a safe option.

Cars are screened before entering the compound, and baggage is x-rayed. It’s a very safe hotel on that front.

Rooms are nice, modern, everything you’d expect.

Only downside is the restaurant prices are a bit steep. But service is great.

This hotel was the perfect stay for the end of our trip to Jordan. We walked from here to Rainbow street, all around downtown Amman, up to the Citadel and roman theater, souks, and back. The staff is friendly, check in was a breeze, rooms are clean and spacious, and we were even able to use the shower facilities in the spa before our very late midnight flight out of Jordan.

One of the original first luxury Amman hotels. Attentive service, rooms are nice not extraordinary. Great breakfast buffet with ample local fare options in addition to more Western selections including omelette bar. Also four other restaurants on site: Lebanese, Mexican, Indian, and Sushi. Ate at both the Lebanese and Indian and both very good. Short walk to Rainbow Street shopping. And also a grocery store located about 5 minute walk away.

The hotel is beautiful both inside and out and extremely clean. Every staff member we met was friendly and professional-from the front desk to the housecleaning. The rooms are large, the pool is beautiful (although we didn’t use it) and the hotel has every amenity you could need.

Most others have mentioned its location being the best in the city, but I’m not sure if that is the case. Yes, Rainbow street is only a 20-minute walk but there really isn’t much there to see anyway and we preferred going downtown. Uber and taxis are very cheap, and you can get anywhere for about JOD 1.5.
We stayed in the “deluxe” wing which was supposedly an upgrade, but the room will likely need an upgrade in the near future.

It was all quite nice, clean, wi-fi worked very well, etc. but starting to be dated. Our only other small complaint, if you can call it that, was the breakfast. It has a huge selection, but it was almost exactly the same every morning and the food was often not warm.

That being said, I will likely stay here next time I’m in Amman and would recommend it to fellow travelers.

InterContinental Jordan in Amman, located in Jabal Amman neighborhood near the third circle. This is one of the more walkable districts of Amman, fairly close to Rainbow Street, a lively strip lined with coffee shops and hookah (“shisha”) bars. The InterContinental is a five-star hotel with excellent facilities and impeccable service. I highly recommend the Club Inter booking at the Club InterContinental level — the rooms (7th and 8th floor) are slightly nicer and more spacious, and you get access to the lounge on the top floor. We did not eat at any of the restaurants in the hotel (Amman turns out to be full of great restaurants), but we used the breakfast buffet every day and it was fantastic. All in all, a great experience.

Super comfy bed, great furnishings, very good service. Location is excellent too, walking distance to Rainbow Street and Old Town etc. It does have a lot of weddings, so expect fab music and lots of people in the lobby from time to time. Did not bother us, and gave us an impromptu cultural experience observing the wedding proceedings etc.

Amman is hot, dusty, loud and frenetic. The Intercontinental is truly a calm oasis in the midst of Amman. The hotel is located near the third traffic circle. It is not terribly close to the major tourist attractions such as the citadel, old town, or Roman ruins. However, none of the better hotels are. It is close to a number of small and good local restaurants and it is a 15 minute walk to Rainbow Street.

The hotel is very well kept and quiet. Like everywhere in Jordan there is a lot of security. My room was spacious and silent despite being on a busy street. Service is fantastic and the pool area lovely. Transfer to the airport by Mercedes was 35 JOD, only 10 JOD more that a meter cab. If I return to Amman, I would absolutely consider the Intercontinental.

3. Ibis Amman 3* – LGBT Friendly Hotels Amman

Ibis Amman
Ibis Amman

Ibis Amman offers contemporary accommodation opposite Amman Mall, surrounded by the city’s business and diplomatic district. Jordan University is nearby and Queen Alia Airport is a 30-minute drive away.

Stylish rooms are air conditioned and provide free Wi-Fi access. Guests will enjoy the selection of satellite channels on the flat-screen TVs and the black-out curtains to ensure good rest.

An all-you-can-eat buffet breakfast with oriental selection is offered daily for breakfast and features fair-trade coffee brews and juices. The in-house café serves refreshments and snacks 24/7.

Ibis Amman is located in the heart of Amman city center. The Hotel is well noted for comfort, modernity and excellent for money. Located only 30 minutes away from Queen Alia International Airport and in the heart of a business and leisure district. Suitably close to shopping centers, restaurants and corporate offices. Ibis Amman is your ideal destination.

Well located. A good mall just across with excellent local shopping. Apart from Trinkets one can pick up Supermarket items also like Cheese, Tinned stuff etc. There is an excellent local Jordanian sweet shop across called Habibi worth visiting. The Hotel is clean and neat. Rooms are neat though not classy. Dining Hall looks good and food is reasonably tasty. Breakfast choices are limited.

I’ve had great experiences in Ibis hotels in the past, and Ibis Amman was no exception. Had a very pleasant two-night stay. Friendly, polite, helpful staff. Efficient check in and check out. Clean room and comfortable bed. Decent size in-room fridge. There is a nice outdoor terrace off the main lobby with a pretty fountain where you can relax in the cool of the evening. They also have a little fitness room with the basics: a few cardio machines, free weights, weight bench.

I really liked the fact that the hotel is located directly across the street from a mall with a food court. The mall also has a C-Town (good-sized supermarket on the first floor and assortment of household goods on the second and third floors). Really enjoyed my stay and gladly recommend to business travelers and tourists. My only recommendation is to add electrical outlets near the bed. I had to charge my mobile phone and other electronics in somewhat inconvenient places in the room.

The location is not in the city center,but a bit far away,but there are a lot of stores surrounding the area. Location is just behind the big road (Moh Fayadh Road). A few steps in front of the hotel is an old shopping mall, Amman Mall. But you can find a supermarket that sells everything you need during your stay. The hotel is really safe as there are two layers of security check. The lobby is bright and spacy, the receptionist is very friendly and helpful.

The room is Ibis style, not very big but acceptable. The room has a square window that can not be opened and you can not get fresh air. The air conditioner is working quite good although I still feel cool as the heater is not hot at all, but it is fine. The bed is very comfortable, and four pillows available. The room provides small fridge with two small bottles of free water. Tea and coffee making facility available, safe box and wide screen Samsung flat TV. The electric outlet is a three-prong, then need to bring your adapter if you come from USA, Europe and certain Asia countries. The bathroom is very clean and the water power is strong. It is unusual that Ibis in Amman did not provide toothbrush and hard soap. Just liquid shampoo and soap provided.

The breakfast was served at Mezzanine floor and you got plenty of choices although they never change the menu. They served good coffee and milk. The egg station is a plus. Overall this hotel is very nice for a short stay. If you are out most of the time, you can considered Ibis Amman as a choice. And free wifi is strong at the whole area.
