If you need to spend the Sabbath in the Bakaa region of Jerusalem - this is a great place to be. Good location, friendly staff, quiet side street off a main street, within reasonable walking distance of the Old City. Garden apartments are a big plus. Bedroom small. No meal option at hotel, breakfast vouchers are available at a coffee... More

My wife and I stayed here for 5 nights recently. The property was well located for us but if you want something central beware that it is not. The management was very nice and eager to please but the room left a lot to be desired. First, it is very cramped. The absolute size is not too bad but the... More

The Tamar is a super nice, clean, comfortable hotel in Baka. It is very close to the renovated train station and Emek Rafiim. The rooms are spacious and have great airconditioning and tvs in each room. The bathroom is small but clean.

We stayed at Tamar, had 2 rooms for 4 nights. Each room had a comfortable King size Bed & Pull out sofa. The location was excellent, in a quiet residential area (Bakka) close to the Train Station. This is a new beautiful area of restaurants. We were 10min drive from the Old City. Tamar staff were always helpful, the guys... More

I spent one night at the Tamar Residence with my family. The five of us were split into two separate rooms. Each room was spacious, clean and comfortable. The location is great and very quiet at night which makes sleeping with the windows open, no problem at all. The staff were friendly and even though I mixed up the check... More

We just returned from a two night stay at this "hotel" It is a great value and a really nice place to stay for a family or a couple. Well appointed, modern and has free parking.
