Royal Jordanian Lounge - Amman, Jordan
Decent, but lacking
The Crown class lounge of the Royal Jordanian Airlines at Queen Alia International Airport in Amman, Jordan is located on the second floor of the south terminal. Designed to accommodate 340 passengers, this Royal Jordanian lounge is bright and airy and is accessible 24/7.

The Royal Jordanian lounge is accessible to Oneworld’s Emerald and Sapphire members as well as First and Business Class customers flying on Royal Jordanian Airlines. This lounge is well laid out with an array of comfortable seating. Flat screen televisions in the main hall of the lounge are tuned to different channels. A dozen private flat screen television stations equipped with comfortable chairs, a selection of 20 channels and movies and headphones are also available in the main lounge. Magazine racks offer a selection of Jordanian and international newspapers and magazines.
The business center at the Royal Jordanian lounge is equipped with nine internet-enabled computers, but there are no printers. Even a private meeting room is available. This lounge also offers a play room for kids, a games room for adults, a prayer room, a smoking room and a quiet room.
The self-service dining area offers a panoramic view of the ramp. While I was at the lounge, breakfast was being served and consisted of sandwiches, some fruit, cucumbers, rolls and muffins. However, I found the food to be quite bland without any flavor. The bar is located right across from the dining area and offers a selection of beverages. Liquors like Bacardi, Black Label, Baileys and Gordon’s Gin were available here.
The showers were available for a fee of $15. However, the showers did not match up to their price as there was only some liquid soap in mine, unlike Lufthansa where you get a whole selection of Molton Brown bath amenities. The Royal Jordanian lounge also offers sleeping rooms priced at $50 for the first 4 hours and $20 for each additional hour for a single room and $75 for the first 4 hours and $30 for each additional hour for a double room.
Overall, the Royal Jordanian lounge is not well marked and it is quite easy to miss the entrance and some of the facilities inside the Royal Jordanian lounge. I even missed the quiet room and the sleeping rooms in the lounge. And, I only found out about the showers by asking at the front desk.
