First Mövenpick jewel opens in Amman

Accor has introduced the celebrated Mövenpick brand to the Jordanian capital of Amman. 

The illustrious Mövenpick Hotel Amman, home to 218 elegantly appointed rooms, is the Swiss brand’s sixth property in Jordan and boasts a convenient location within arm’s reach of the city’s most dazzling attractions, such as the Citadel, Temple of Hercules, Roman Amphitheatre, as well as the central business district and world-class shopping malls. The highlight of the accommodation offering is the spectacular top-floor presidential suite with a balcony featuring a Jacuzzi and breath-taking views of the city skyline. 

Following the existing property’s reflag to Mövenpick, a brand that resonates in Jordan due to its strong market presence, it is expected to become a leading destination for meetings and events, and unparalleled leisure and dining experiences in the heart of the capital.

“Raising the first Mövenpick flag in Amman marks a milestone for the brand in the country where its Middle East growth story began and today operates six high-profile properties across Aqaba, Petra and the Dead Sea,” Michael Nugent, vice president operations – Levant and Pakistan, Accor enthued. “The new hotel not only complements these popular resorts but Accor’s three additional properties in the capital. It provides business and leisure travellers with even more choice of quality accommodation options in the capital, from midscale to luxury.”

The property is home to four exceptional restaurants, seven meeting rooms and an exquisite grand ballroom accommodating up to 1,200 people. Other facilities include an outdoor swimming pool, a gym, a sauna and a steam room, as well as an executive floor and lounge. 

Accor’s three additional properties in its growing Jordan portfolio include Fairmont Amman, which opened in 2017 as the first Fairmont property in the country; Le Grand Amman – another re-branding of a landmark hotel that will soon become Sofitel Amman following comprehensive refurbishment; and Hotel Ibis Amman.
