The room was proper and mostly meeting the expectations we had when we had booked. The staff is very kind and they have helped us in dealing our problems with the bad weather. The only observation I have is about the heating system: our room was at the end of the corridor and we needed to keep the heater on... More

I stayed for one night. This is a hotel in East Jerusalem, and it's location is excellent for exploring the old city. The rooms are basic, but clean. Staff are very helpful. Definitely I will stay again in this hotel.

My family and I stayed here for 3 nights and enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay there again. The free breakfast in the morning is outstanding and the hotel location is close to Old Jerusalem. The hotel is in East Jerusalem, but the area is safe and the people are very friendly.

We picked this hotel primarily due to the closeness to the Old City which was our primary goal during our 3- day stay in Jerusalem. However, as it turned out it was a scoop because also the rooms, the people and the general standard of the hotel was a positive meeting. You have to walk through a very arab neighbourhood... More

The Ritz is a short walk from Herod's Gate and the Old City, so is convenient for travellers wishing to explore one of the most fascinating places in the world. The hotel is in need of a little updating but the facilities are as advertised. The lobby, corridors and communal areas were spotlessly clean, as were the rooms many of... More

I stayed here for 5 nights with a tour group. The staff were friendly & accomodating and the variety of food at breakfast & dinner was good. It is in walking distance of the Old City. The rooms are adequate, but the bathroom is very small & the towels were almost threadbare. There is a safe & hairdryer in the... More

Good hotel. Not far from city center. Very nice and accomodating staff. breakfasts and dinners present nice variety of food, also nicely presented. Not too far from the Old City, perhpas 15 minute walk to Damascus Gate. Hotel had looby bar, although prices are rather high. Overall - good experience, especially if you are on a group trip.

The very hospitable, helpful, and all around delightful people at The Ritz are always there to help you. They speak English, too! Many of the rooms have small balconies. :) Close to lots of restaurants and shops with equally delightful people -- including a nice cleaner across the street and a great little falafel shop. The price is right, too.

i stayed here three nights with a tour group. The rooms were small, and well worn. The bathroom had the craziest sliding corner door shower that required proper alignment to avoid getting water all over the place. The area is just a couple of blocks from the old city walls. Lots of local shops and cafes to visit nearby. We... More
