Jerusalem, Israel
Reviewed 2 days ago NEW

Good bargain. This hotel is well located and has spaqcious rooms, a nice lobby and and interesting decor. Not very modern and not personal - it's more a tourist-groups hotel - but good for its price. No sport facilities - but gives an opportunity to use the great facilities of Lerner in Mt scopus (not far by car)

This hotel was booked for us as part of a tour group. Rooms are small, bathrooms are tiny. Furniture dated and scuffed. Housekeeping is poor. Lots of dirt and dust on carpets in rooms and in hallways. Furniture dusty. Food is good. Beds are hard spring mattresses without any pillow tops. Two twin mattress pressed together to make a Queen....

Dear Lisa, First of all, thank you for taking the time to write us this review. We're sorry that you were unsatisfied with the facilities and some of the hotel's services. The beddings, rooms and bathrooms sizes are European standards, which is very different from U.S. standards so we can understand your disappointment. We will take to heart every issue...

This is a decent tourist class hotel with a standard buffet breakfast. The location is excellent as it's a lovely walk to Herod's Gate, with a bakery along the way. Great gift shop with a friendly owner. Nothing fancy but good value for the money.

Beds were comfortable, (king bed was actually two beds together) - Hotel was clean, service was good. Dining room breakfasts were WONDERFUL - with quite a variety. No gym on property, but do offer arrangements nearby. Does have a meeting room. Within walking distance of Old Jerusalem which was quite nice. Not much else too close by........ Don't expect air...

Yes hotel a bit dated but we found it very clean and the staff very professional. Yes it's a tourist bus hotel but we are tourists. This is not a boutique hotel but it filled our needs perfectly. Location is very good for old city but also for the tram line. Highly recommended

This hotel needs a serious update. The carpets are stained and the furniture is beat up. I have never seen a mattress so thin! The A/C was turned off to the whole building even though it was very warm outside. The room was like an inferno. I opened the window (which was filthy) and there was no breeze. The one...

Reviewed 4 weeks ago

The hotel is beautiful with good service, good food, good staff and the pleasure of fresh flowers every day in the public areas. If you are traveling to Jerusalem I would highly recommend this hotel. My suggestion is that they move some of the extra furniture from rooms ie extra chairs and table. Leave very little space to move around.
