(owner of the smallest hotel) was working in the government sector. He lives in Al Jaya village which is located near Al Shoubak (south of the capital Amman) in Jordan. After his retirement in 1990, he thought to sell some drinks (like tea, coffee) and eatables too to improve the economic conditions of his family as his pension was not enough to support his family. Al Maheem then took his first step and put the tent at the door of Shobak Castle (Shobak Castle
is an early 12th-century Crusader castle in barren surroundings) and started selling hot and soft drinks. In addition to eatables, he also started selling antique jewelry and heritage clothing. When he started his small business he felt that so many people have fled away from the region for education, employment etc. So he decided that he will do something to increase the tourism of his village (Al Jaya). Then he bought a Volkswagen car from a friend and came out with the bright idea to convert the car into the smallest hotel in the world.
The doors of the hotel were opened in 2011. To give his dreams shape AL Malaheem took a financial loan from the Ministry of Social Development to set up Hotel Lobby inside a nearby cave. He's named it "Baldwin's Grotto"; a nod to Baldwin I of Jerusalem, who built the impressive castle, Montreal, in nearbyAl Shoubak in 1115. The reception of the hotel is situated in the lap of nature (situated in Cave). At the reception, guests are offered with tea, coffee, and traditional Jordan snacks after check-in.
