Do not ask the hotel to get you a taxi to the border. We asked the lady at the reception for a taxi to the border, she told me it would cost 15JD but she will try to get one at 10JD. The fact was the taxi driver will start bargain from 10JD and we finally flagged one with 7JD.
There was also price difference on the standard rooms on booking.com and the number the lady at the reception told us. Of course her price was higher. I think it might be walked-in price so better to book via online agent if you want to stay in this hotel. But I won't stay there again because of the noise from the street, it was party all night.
