This is indeed a great rooftop apartment in City Center Jerusalem, steps away from the Mahane Yehuda shouk (market). It is a beautiful experience to see all the cultures of Israel in one place, in winding streets, a short walk away from the Old City, the Central Bus station, the Israel Museum, Mamilla mall, etc.
the apartment itself is not luxurious, but very serviceable with kitchen, clothes washing, wifi, and the roof top garden. Motty took very good care of us, explaining all the quirks of living in Jerusalem, the plumbing, the electricity, etc.
We would stay here again any time!
Stayed here for a week in early May and had a great time.
The apartment is well located a few minutes walk from the Mahane Yahuda Market and a 15-20 min walk to the old town (depending on how hot it is!). The market is great, loads of really good fruit, veg, spices etc - plus bars and restaurants. Atmosphere on Friday afternoons before the Shabbat there was amazing.
Its a studio, but a nice size with two sofas, comfy bed and kitchen area. Full size fridge freezer, a counter top convection oven that cooked well and three gas hobs. Fine for cooking meals with stuff from the market and much cheaper than eating out - has just about enough pans, cutlery etc. It was just the two of us staying there though and might be a bit cramped with many more adults although fine with some kids.
Has a nice shower and a washing machine that worked well - clothes dried on the roof terrace in no time.
Has a TV and Hi Fi - but too much to do to spend much time using them. If we weren't out and about then usually on the roof terrace (although did get a bit cold up there in the evenings). The roof terrace isnt overlooked and really made the apartment. Views over towards the Knesset, but more fun is just watching everyday life on the streets it overlooks. Watch out for insects in the evening though as I got bitten!
Jerusalem is a great city and well worth a visit, thought the apartment was in an absolutely ideal location, clean and really good value. The guy who owns it is helpful, speaks English and was really friendly - would happily go back again.
Nice, comfortable place with a great terrace!
The location is really convenient, near markets, shops and restaurants.
10 minute walk to the light train and buses so great place to be near the Old City in Jerusalem.
The owner was really friendly and make me feel welcome!
Motty is a very careing, flexible and friendly person. The apartment is exactly as announced. We - the family of three persons - enjoyed especially the nice private rooftop with mini garden. There are short walking distances to everything you need in Jerusalem, for example Mahane Yehuda shuk, pedestrian center, etc. We were very happy for those two weeks in Jerusalem. We definitely will come back to this apartment.
