This palace takes its name from Dar Al Nadwa, an informal cultural and intellectual forum established by the Hashemites' ancestor, Qusai Bin Kilab, in the early 7th century.

Nadwa was the fifth Hashemite palace, built as a family residence by King Hussein. Completed in 1964, it was later renovated by Queen Noor. Nadwa lies on the Royal Court grounds slightly to the south of Basman Palace, whose influence is evident in its external design. King Hussein and Queen Noor lived here from 1978 until 1995, when they moved to Bab Al Salam. Nadwa Palace is now a royal guest house.
