Right in the heart of occupied east Jerusalem this is a comfortable halt - traditional Palestinian breakfast and hospitality.A short walk to bustling Saladin street and to Damascus gate - great cafes in neighbourhood

Decent hotel, clean throughout (apart from ants on our carpet), helpful staff, free wifi was seamless. Hoped for a bit of an authentic local breakfast but was just a buffet spread of toast and various other spreads. Quite a hefty walk to the old city and Al-Aqsa. But it was overall average.

We spent one night in the Mount Scopus Hotel, and it was a lovely, roomy hotel. Fantastic views over Jerusalem. And although it might at first feel a little far away, it is less than 2 minutes from some really great restaurants and a short walk from the old city. The rooms were big. Service came with a smile. I...

Mount Scopus Hotel is in the middle of the Arab neighborhood called Sheikh Jarrah. The hotel is clearly very old and has not recently been updated, but it has a very nice lobby with free Wi-Fi and the breakfast there is very large and comes for free with your room. I was served two hard-boiled eggs, multiple types of cheese,...

We stayed in Mt Scopus hotel. It was comfy and rooms are spacious but well used. Found this hotel to be good value for money if you are looking for clean and spacious accommodation. The breakfast was good there was a variety. We also enjoyed buffet supper there.

Rooms were in need of updating. No tea/coffee making facilities. No fridge. Staff not particularly friendly. Breakfast adequate. Shower dreadful. On the positive side, good view over the city and didn't mind the 15-20 minute walk to Damascus Gate.

Stayed here for 3 nights whilst on a group trip. Good views from the rooms and lobby over Jerusalem. + 2 computers with internet free of charge for use, free WiFi in the lobby. The biggest disadvantage is the distance to the old town. It is 15-20min walk to the Damaskus Gate (uphill on the way home). But it felt...

Outdated, unprofessional.
