It's a good hotel, right opposite the city walls. You can sit out on the large flat roofed area that has an extraordinary views of the walls. But I felt oppressed by the large groups of Christian pilgrims that dominate the hotel.

If you want to be near the action then this is the place for you. Cross over the road, go through the Damascus Gate and you are in the vibrant Old City. This hotel was known as The Pilgrims' Palace when I first stayed there over twenty years ago. Once again, I was there with a large group (70) of... More

This hotel is located steps away from the Damascus gate and old Jerusalem. The staff was amazingly pleasant, professional and incredibly helpful. While the hotel could probably use an interior update, I found the rooms nice, beds comfortable and free wi-fi was offered. I am also a professional chef and found the food to be flavorful, well-presented and, after traveling... More

We stayed at The Golden Walls as a party of 25. We were well catered for and the staff very kindly spoke English with us. They were all smart, friendly and professional. The food was excellent, varied, colourful, tasty and fresh. Our room was 'just right', spacious, comfortable and clean. An unpredictable problem of a flickering lightbulb in our bathroom... More

Stayed 1 night as a part of a group. That was more than enough. The rooms are small and the beds are very small. You can't push them together as a table is fixed between them. Bathroom is equally cramped. The dining room is too small for the number of guests. The net effect is a cramped, noisy, claustrophobic experience.... More

We stayed here for 6 nights from 23rd October as part of a McCabe Pilgrimage. The hotel was nice enough as we were out most of the days anyway, but on arriving we had no towels in our room. We went to reception 3 times to ask for towels but none materialised. It is pretty poor when you can't shower... More

We stayed at the Golden Walls Hotel for six nights as part of a McCabe pilgrimage. There were definite pros and cons. On the plus side has to be the location as it is directly opposite the old walls with easy access to the city. The food was good and plentiful and the staff were generally friendly and accommodating.

The hotel is tired and needs investment to upgrade the older rooms to a standard usually found in Tulip Group hotels. Rooms might look out on the street sellers below along with their rubbish and noise from early morning to late evening. Room servicing is somewhat casual at times and essential things like bath plugs missing. There is somewhat noisy... More

I recently took a party of 47 to Israel and stayed in the Tulip Inn in Jerusalem. It is an ideal setting for exploring the old city which is just across the road and also the wider pilgrimage sites in Israel. The staff are wonderful - nothing is too much trouble. One of our party had the handle on his... More

Located in the center of the old city .. And close to everything. the price is totally fair.... it is close to Bab Almud gate, a couple of minutes around 2-3 minutes you can reach the gate.. it is good for families..the rooms is too wide and comfortable. FYI: the breakfast also nice and rich as it should be
