A unique hotel in Jerusalem's Jewish Quarter in the Old City. The Sephardic House hotel nestles at the very heart of the Jewish Quarter of Jerusalem's Old City - an exquisite jewel offering the ultimate hospitality in the magical atmosphere of Jerusalem. The building was first built some 200 years ago and completed towards the end of the 19th century. From the residence, there are superb views of the Old City and the City of David. The complex boasts 51 guest rooms located in three separate wings, each offering a different level of accommodation and hospitality: Deluxe wing - offers superb and luxurious accommodation in 12 rooms and 3 suites. The entire storey of deluxe accommodations faces towards the charming patio with its echoes of a traditional Spanish courtyard orchard. Rishon LeTzion wing - a wing suitable for private events, such as family gatherings, with 6 rooms. Economy wing - with 30 standard guest rooms for dual and single occupancy. Our guest rooms have been designed meticulously in order to carefully conserve their historical features create a harmonious blend with modern luxury and comfort, so that guests can enjoy a truly unique holiday experience. Sephardic House is a unique building in the Jewish Quarter, located within walking distance of the magical alleyways of the Old City of Jerusalem, the ancient Hurva Synagogue, the Kotel (Western Wall), Mt. Zion, the Kotel tunnels, the Armenian Quarter, the Church of the Holy Sepulcher, the Mamilla District, the Jerusalem Cinemathèque and town center. This location provides an extremely convenient starting point for walks around the Old City, while its proximity to the Western Wall transforms it into an attractive venue for hosting Bar/Bat Mitzvahs and other family events.

Awful. Had to find another hotel. Mold in bathroom, dirty room, terrible breakfast, no heating in room, awful dinner recommendation. Don’t go there. The price is outrageous for such poor quality of hotel

We stayed here for five nights. The breakfast was very good and much different than what I am used to (I am not used to having cheese for breakfast). Dinner was good each evening with plenty of food and some different selections. The desk clerks were very helpful when I needed a few things. Our room was comfortable and I slept like a baby. The room we were in was on the small side when compared with an American hotel. However, I found that to be common throughout the hotels on our trip. I would most definitely stay here again. It is right on the edge of Old City Jerusalem and thus close to everything you might want. It is a short walk to the Wailing Wall, the Temple Mount, and the tunnels underneath of the Temple Mount.

The Sephardic House located in the old city is a beautiful property. The front office staff as well as the F&B staff (specially the barman) are very courteous and helpful. The rooms are good sized and very well appointed. The amenities in the room are good quality. The food in the restaurant was good. The Breakfast (7 am to 10 am) is sumptuous and good spread. Its greatest advantage is its location. Being in the Walled city in the Jew quarter, it gives you an opportunity to go back and rest in the afternoon after a days hectic sight seeing and then prepare for the evening.

We were a tour group of fourteen from Southern Africa. We were welcomed warmly. Beautiful flower boxes of olive trees, bright busy lizzies and draped silver foliage at the entrance.The rooms were comfortable with good shower en suite. We enjoyed delicious breakfasts and dinners and a special Shabbat meal. Great to be within the Old City Walls as so easy to walk around the Old City. Great lounge to relax in and elegant courtyard. A wonderful feel of being in a Jewish setting. Cannot think of any drawbacks.

the hotel is pretty, nice architecture and decor, but so inaccessible..! and worst than that- they believe they are accessible... (because asking the handicap to get off the wheelchair and go up a few stairs on his own because it's too hard to lift the wheelchair with him on it is totally accessible..............) you should note that if you're tall you'll hit your head a lot, as the doorways (as nice and curved as they may be) are very low. also- forget about sitting comfortably on the toilet seat, as the vanity blocks half of the toilet legroom (and keep in mind those are the "accessible" deluxe rooms). in these same rooms, you'll find that adding a bed for a third person blocks half the doorway, making it either impossible to pass with a wheelchair or impossible to get onto the double bed when having to push single bed into a diagonal position. food was ok, service was fine, location is great if you can walk (many stairs and weird old city stones that aren't too easy to walk on), there's no parking next to the hotel and they did not provide an extra toilet paper roll in the room... ohhh and the elevator...! the available floor buttons on the elevator are 0,1,2,3 (or was it -1, 0,1,2?) yet the elevator will stop on the floors: 0,3,4,5...?! so rooms 200+ are on floor #4, which in order to it you should press the button 2........ extremely confusing and not user friendly. it's an ok hotel for the old city, but honestly I would just not stay in the old city again...
