It's difficult to rate a place that's lacking in one significant way, but is otherwise fine. I'm giving this hotel three out of five because the location is great - near Hashem, Habiba, Jafra and other great places to eat, near all the Old Town attractions and just a steep walk uphill from Rainbow Street and the inner part of West Amman. The man at the front desk, Elias, was very nice and generally helpful during my stay. I was in the basement room, which was clean and comfortable, if small and fairly basic. However, the hotel explicitly advertises free wifi in all rooms, but the wifi simply doesn't work in the basement room. The staff is clearly aware of this, because when I checked in and asked about the internet, I was told there are issues with it in the basement. Can't say I'm surprised given the router is several floors up. There is an unplugged router on top of the dresser in the basement room, but it doesn't do much good needless to say. I raised the issue a few times, but I was simply told nothing could be done and that I could use the internet in reception several floors up from my room if I need it. So if internet is important to you, I wouldn't recommend staying here (or at least in the basement room). I wouldn't mind so much if the hotel wasn't so clearly aware of the problem and yet still chooses to advertise wifi in all areas. Otherwise a fine place to stay in Amman.
