If you are young and fit with little luggage you could (perhaps?) walk. It is about 5km (6km at most) from the border to the Comfort Hotel. But be advised that Eilat regularly reaches 38C and often above 40C and you don't really want to walk in those conditions. I do not know about taxi rates but the easiest is to ask a driver to go on the meter. Either they will oblige (this is a 'quiet' crossing and rarely are there so many people that taxi drivers feel comfortable in raising their costs) or you can barter for a price (it's only 5 km). There is usually a sherut at the crossing which carries about 10-15 passengers. All you need to do is climb onboard and the sherut leaves when it is full. Sheruts typicall tour the city and drop eveyrone off at their requested destination, or Eilat airport. I have seen people walk from the border to the main road, a distance of about 1km, hoping to find a taxi there. Believe me, it is not worth it. The main road to the north goes nowhere so the chances of finding a floating taxi are slim and, a driver finding you there, is more likely to inflate the cost. A final note that be careful with border opening hours because there are reduced hours on Friday and Saturday during the Jewiah Sabbath.
