I have just returned from a trip to Israel/Palestine and was lucky enough to stay at the Golden Walls hotel (formerly Pilgrim's Palace). It is situated just outside the Old City Walls near the Damascus Gate, fabulous location and just a few minutes walk into the Old City. The staff are excellent, so friendly and nothing is too much trouble.... More

Stayed twice between trips elsewhere. Great location 3 minutes wander to gates of old city. Caters for a lot of groups, but also holiday makers. Location can't be beaten. Food excellent. Bar prices quite reasonable. Our room recently renovated and the roof top bar area has a great view. Front desk will also give you a good price for local... More

I stayed in this hotel back in 1999, and I worried about whether we would have a good experience when we booked this hotel for our trip to the Holy Land this year, but I found the hotel vastly upgraded. You have to climb some steps up the lobby on the second floor, but it is now very nice. The... More

Although it's nothing much to look at from outside, the Golden Walls hotel is a lovely family-run hotel in East Jerusalem. It's location just off Jaffa Gate means that it's in easy strking-distance of central Jerusalem e.g. the suqqs and the Wailing Wall. The buffet meals were consistently good and the staff were incredibly obliging. I was staying with a... More

Stayed here a few nights pilgrim style. Room & en suite were compact and dated, but quite adequate for a base to tour City Centre & surrounding area. Good selection of food on hot buffet and quality & service were all excellent. There is some noise from the local mosque, at prayer time but this is very short lived. Located... More

It is a very nice hotel, situated between Damascus Gate and Herod’s Gate, so it is so easy to get from it to the Old Town. I had so specious and nice room, with an... More

This is a racist comment. It is completely untrue, incorrect and does not belong to reality. More

Stayed here for the first part of a two centre Pilgrimage. Ideally situated almost opposite the Damascus Gate for easy access on foot to the walled city. A friendly welcome. Well sized rooms (although as a single traveller in a group I do object to the supplement I have to pay for that privilege!), and comfortable bed. A few English... More
