We were in Jerusalem only two nights this time .... so we decided to stay at this beautiful charming hotel. The front desk staff were extremely friendly. The room was big and we had a view of the old city. The best part of the stay was the beautiful buffet style breakfast. It was a feast, fantastic food and service,... More

It needs to be understood that this is an Orthodox Hotel. If you are looking for 'Western' flexibility, this is not the place to stay! Pool is small, very exposed to the elements(When the wind is up it is almost impossible to open the door to the pool level. Pool has both segregated and limited hours. Food is average. Rooms...

All hotels on Jerusalem are expensive, so for this matter it was in a fair price. It's an old hotel, not renew or anything, but a nice one. Has a view to the windmill and Mount Zion from some rooms. A great location, 5 minutes walk from the old city 1 minute walk from Yemin Moshe, 20 minutes walk from... More

Couldn't wait to leave. Rooms are old and dated but they are clean. The breakfast buffet was awful. Only white bread rolls, no croissants etc. Staff weren't too friendly either. Ordered taxi to airport and was told by reception 300 but when I got to airport it was 350?? Pool beds are in no way comfortable.

Spent two nights here, wished I had spent a bit more to stay elsewhere. Pros: Close to old city, an easy 1km walk away Low cost Cons: abysmal customer service shabby plan on having breakfast elsewhere

Our stay at King Solomon came about due to unsatisfactory accomodations at another hotel. With that said, they graciously opened their doors to us and our stay was only positive from that point on. The room was quiet, spacious and the bed was comfortable. The breakfast provided the essentials - coffee, tea, boiled eggs, bread items/toppings as well as danish.... More

Weeks later you find yourself in the situation that the hotel either charges you credid card for now show. This happens to me at... More

Stayed here for about a week at the end of April as part of a tour group. Our hotel room was tiny compared to the rooms of others in our group which was disappointing. Make sure you ask for a larger room. Good buffet breakfast. Not that clean. The carpets could have done with a good steam clean and the... More

As a part of a small Catholic Pilgrimage group, we had no choice in accommodations. After reading over several of the negative reviews, I was concerned. However, our stay was pleasant. The room was clean and decently appointed, the breakfast and dinner buffets were fairly well done and the staff was friendly. As a bonus, if interested, there is a... More

Hotel was a bit of a disappointment. Balconies scary with loose tile. WI fi. A big problem. Couldn't tell how food was because we never got to eat. We went to the dining room in the morning and we're faced with dirty tables and surely wait staff. I decided to leave after one night and went to another hotel. My... More
