I've staying in most of the top hotels in Israel, and this is definitely one of my favorites. I'd rank it second in jerusalem after the king david which is much more expensive. It has old world charm, every corner has a different architectural feature and beautiful features. i stayed in a "simple" room in the new section which was... More

Mt. Zion Hotel is a notch above the mostly bland and sterile 5 star hotels of Jerusalem. Part of the hotel dates back to 1882 when it was built as an eye hospital by the British charitable order of St. John's. The original character has been maintained as it expanded over the course of 100 years. Feels like you are... More

We stayed in this hotel for 10 days. Our room was on the ground floor, and yes it was a little but tired but still very comfortable. One of the few hotels I have been in that had a full length mirror. Bathroom floor could have been a bit cleaner. The buffet breakfast was absolutely superb with a vast selection... More

Perfect stay few minutes away walking from the Old City and less than 5 minutes walking from the Old Train Station (with restaurants and coffee perfect for a breakfast/lunch). Even though the hotel is a little old, it is quite charming. Very good value. Beautiful view of the Judea valley and the Old City (ask for a room with a... More

The hotel is old, the rooms are not clean. The bathroom or the bathtub is not hygienic. We were very frustrated. The air conditioning does not work well. The carpets look old and dirty. The closet is very old. However the beds are clean and comfortable. Location is not very good but it is not far from the Jaffe gate.... More

When checking into the Mount Zion Hotel you will find a lovely and inviting lobby. It is an upside down hotel where you enter on the sixth floor and go down to other floors. Our original room was on the second floor. Immediately upon exiting the elevator there is an aroma that is trying to mask some other smell. The... More

Your review is not only subjective but unjust. The fact that you did not like the perfume of our cleaning products ( namely, that used for cleaning floors) does not warrant such accusations. The standard room that you were by chance allocated does indeed have a small and old bath but, as we showed you at the time, it was... More

Simply put, we just LOVE this hotel. We made our youngest son's bar mitzvah here last year and had amazing service/care from all the staff. The food is amazing, the view unsurpassed, the pool area is beautiful, and the entire hotel "feels" like you are in Jerusalem, not just another cookie-cutter hotel that could be anywhere in the world. Some... More

Just returned from spending 6 nights here. Rooms not vacuumed the for 4 days until we complained. Dirt and mold in bathrooms . The attitude of the staff was very poor. No face towels or washcloths 4 of the 6 nights. Found roaches in the breakfast buffet table. Roaches(dead) also left on the floor in the elevator area for days.... More

The Mount Zion is a beautiful old hotel just outside the Zion Gate of the old city in Jerusalem. It is a medium size hotel, and feels so much nicer than the newer large hotels with less character. The Mount Zion has lots of character. Lovely lobby with great views of the old city. Terrific breakfast...especially loved the chocolate babka!... More

Definite 5-star hotel! Extremely personable, friendly, helpful staff. Most unique and inviting hotel I've experienced; a historic treasure of its own. I wanted to explore the hotel as much as the rest of the city. Breathtaking views of the Old City (the "actual" Mt. Zion) and Hinnom Valley. Excellent accommodations: pool extremely inviting, gorgeous decor, rooms are clean and very... More
