I stayed in a 35 jd room. Originally booked a 25 jd room. I spent a
couple of months in Jordan earlier so I was prepared for low standards -
no shower cabin - yes just the drain in the bathroom floor, so while
showering you can sit on the toilet :-), poor mattresses, no facilities
except the tv and so on. But what happened was absurd. I'll make it
as short as possible. First the street noise was unbearable. At first
the boss lady refused to change my room (?!) and afterwards made an
effort of pointing out that my new room costs more and that she was
soooo good to me. Anyway do not book the rooms facing the street! If you
like sleeping that is. The sewer iron cover clanks loudly with each
passing car. This is not the ho(s)tels fault but they do not warn you of
this and it is apparently a known issue - the lady said she has even
asked the Mayor to fix it. The balcony door does not seal off the
sounds. The door does not seal anything and this is the ho(s)tels fault.
Secondly and more importantly they do not accept credit cards.
(Booking.com should really check this information!) Which would not be a
big issue if they would be so nice not to lie about this. I would not
book with them had I known I would be impolitely asked to go outside to
the atm and get some cash. Because 'everybody does this'(?!).
Finally a note - the boss lady arranged for a taxi trip to the Bethany -
25 jd. Picking up driver's friends along the way apparently was
included in the price.
The Ukrainian girl at the front desk (sorry did not ask for the name).
She seems like the only staff member (except the boss lady) that is
fluent in english, and coherent. The other guys are...
The room was cleaned (did not expect this) but only for first three days.
