This hotel has a very convenient location - 5 minutes walk to the old town. We went together with her husband. The staff is very friendly, always appealed to him. Not important for us beauty rooms, and the most important thing is to be clean and comfortable. Cleaned every day. The breakfasts are very good. Generally, the next time we...

Construction work causes a lot of noise every morning!! Although stated on the website, definitely not in an quiet street. The street is so short that the noise from the Saladin street is well heard. Especially at night and during Ramadan, when the whole street transforms in a party scene. The rooms are old and the whole hotel needs an...

This hotel is located near the old city. In terms of location it's excellent. But the hotel certainly needs a do up. It's very dirty; the dining hall had no air conditioning & having breakfast there was like living in an oven (we were there in July). Worse still, the shower had a shortage of cold shower supply & we...

My second stay at the Capitol. The location- close to the Old City and a few minutes walk from the Damascus Gate- is unbeatable. Two bus stations are also within easy walking distance. This is the most interesting part of Jerusalem with friendly and welcoming inhabitants. The hotel is excellent value; it offers comfortable accommodation, friendly staff, a good breakfast...

This hotel is nicely located a 5 minute walk from Herod's Gate and a 8 minute walk from the Damascus gate. The area is fine and the hotel has wi-fi in the lobby which is nice. However, for the price that is charged, I was disappointed with how little the hotel rooms are taken care of. Our bathroom doorknob was...
