Stayed here for 5 nights in October. Within walking distance of the Damascus Gate into the old city of Jerusalem. Great food and service. We were staying here when war broke out on 7th October and the staff were wonderful liasing with our travel company to get us out and over the border into Jordan on the following morning.

Great place. Not sure why there are bad reviews. Can only assume it's because of reviewers being biased or Islamaphobic, which ofcourse is their problem. Overall a good value and in a decent location. I suggest you book on advance and have transportation.

First let me say, my husband and i enjoyed this hotel. I always think it is most helpful to spell out the pros and cons when i read other reviews so i will do that here:

Pros:
-location to the old city: it is a straight 5-10 min walk and you are at damascus gate and a further 10 min walk from there (also a straight shot) and you are at the western wall plaza and entrance to temple mount. Also 5 min from the new light rail to take you to city center and central station.
- very clean hotel with nice staff, particularly in the restaurants
- excellent breakfast buffet
- we were impressed with the restaurant (Cardo) which is middle eastern and italian influenced. Quick service, best taboule salad we had in jerusalem, and attentive staff. Never crowded so easy to get seated

Cons:
- my only issue with the hotel was little things with housekeeping-- the rooms were spotlessly cleaned daily but they kept forgetting to replace things...toilet paper, new tea cups and tea, water, etc. this is minor but it got annoying to call every night for something. I hope if the hotel reads this review, they will fix this. It's so easy to avoid and will make the hotel even better!
- there is one downside to the location. Aside from access to the old city and light rail, there isnt much else in the neighborhood. You'll need to go further afield for restaurants or eat at the hotel (there arent a ton of options for dinner in the old city) and a taxi will set you back 50 shekels (10 euros) a ride.

Upon arrival in Jerusalem our story started. The address of the hotel is Nablus Road, which we could not found in our GPS system. While asking around in the neighborhood, we noticed this hotel is located in the Arabic part of Jerusalem. The Hebrew name of the street is Dereikh Shekhem/Derech Shechem, which is shown on all maps and GPS systems, but not in the hotel information.
Afterwards we tried to find the parking lot, which looks very shabby, but is 24h secured. Thereby, the hotel is located next to the American Embassy, so the area is highly secured anyway. Once we parked a car, an unfriendly assistant took our luggage into the hotel. We checked in too early, so they stored our luggage in the safe room. The same evening we picked up our hotel keys and we were told that the luggage was already in the room. This wasn't the case. I returned to the reception to ask about our luggage. The staff couldn't find our suitcases and after two phone calls with other employees they noticed that our suitcases were standing in an unsecured room where a conference was held at that moment.
The lobby and rooms are decorated with Arabic propaganda; books of Palestine, posters of Jerusalem from 1920s with huge mosques. I do not care that people have their favor in the Israeli conflict, but during holidays I do not prefer to be confronted with this propaganda. Hotel staff is Arabic-oriented too; only speaking Arabic and English (no Hebrew), they will send you into the old city right through the Muslim Quarter, which is not a convenient place to visit during the night. We asked to hotel staff about the bus timetable. They only knew the timetable of the Palestine City Bus network and not of the regular Egged Bus company.
About the food, breakfast was quite good. Meat and smoked salmon were dry, used from the day before, because the hotel was nearly empty. The food was not kosher. For me, that is not a problem, but please pay attention to this when you do.
Finally, there are much nicer areas to stay in Jerusalem. During the night the area of the hotel is abandoned. It takes a while to get to the hotel from the South part of the Old City (Jaffa and Zion gate) or Ben Yehuda street. Next time I will definitely look for a hotel that is situated in another part of the city.

I paid extra money for this hotel versus a similar hotel without a pool so that I could relax and get some exercise in the pool. This is a working functioning YMCA in the basement in the Arab part of town. As such everything is segregated - men & women are separate. There are also scheduled classes when you can't use the pool. In my mind, if the hotel advertised "indoor pool" then I expect to have access to the pool at my leisure. The staff was unable to even understand my desire to swim at the same time as my boyfriend. there was no solution available and i didn't end up using the pool at all.
Everything else about this hotel was very good to excellent and I will write a separate review for the non-pool going customer.

We had two nights here and would have liked longer. This place is south a pleasant place to stay.
The rooms are small but very nicely presented. They have beautiful balconies with a nice table and chairs and lovely flowers growing over the railing.
The real highlight though was the breakfast. After 4 weeks of traveling through the middle east and the constant breakfasts of stale bread little else this was such a treat.
I would definitely recommend this hotel.

Although not guests of the hotel they handled agroup of 24 brillinatly, we all ordered Al A Carte with the open kitchen where you could see all the food cooked in front of you. The Restaurant manager and Hotel Manager were present and ensured quietly that the place ran smoothly. beautiful panoramic views from the wrap round terrace. Food was beautiful, large portions and overall very good value for money.

The hotel is not cheap - 150 USD per night for a single room. Since the ranking was quite high on Tripadvisor, I thought it was going to be a nice one. The bathroom is really poor and the room is very basic. Staff were not that friendly, the worst is the hotel tried to charge me $3 for each stamp while the value is only about 90 cents (3.80 local currency)!! That's just ridiculous! Although it's close to the Damascus gate of the old city, there is nothing around you can really walk to. Doesn't feel that safe at night around either. The fitness center is never open.

We didn't stay in the hotel but ate in their garden restaurant. The Arab style dishes were very good but European style dishes were bland. They have a long wine list but don't seem to stock any of the wines on it!

The room I had was equipped with a hairdryer and also had a kettle along with instant coffee/creamer/tea bags. No iron in the room and since I didn't request one !'m unsure if they are available.
