Friendly, well-informed staff greeted me as soon as I arrived in this easy-to-find hotel. Of course, the downside is the location: right at the top of a long schlep up the Mount! However, it was easy to get a bus or taxi and the view is absolutely breathtaking. Surely the best of any accommodation in Jerusalem. Basic breakfast was filling... More

We are from Finland. The cold wasn't problem for us. View from hotel was amazing! Breakfast very good and a lot of choices. We will stay there again, when we will go to Jerusalem. And thanks a lot to hotel administration and staff for nice staying in Jerusalem!

Just returned from a week staying at the Mount of Olives Hotel in the Al Tor village overlooking the old city of Jerusalem. The room and en suite were both clean and well presented. Only downside - no mirror in the bathroom to shave! The staff went out of their way to be helpful. We phoned them before hand and... More

We traveled to the hotel at 6 am even check in supposed to be at 12 we got the room about 8 am and complimentary breakfast that day. The service was incredible nice and helpful. Room was small, but clean. Close to olive garden with great Jerusalem view. Hotel is in Arabic neighborhood, however very safe even at night.

The hotel is far from the old city, to get back there you need a taxi, so add it to the price! Couple of things : 1. First night: bad sheets were dirty of blood. Told the receptionist, he said to me "I'll make it change tomorrow". I am still waiting... In one week sheets were never changed! Have to... More

We have spent 5 nights in this hotel during the holiday season. It was a good choice for this price, the location is very good (bus 75 to the Damascus Gate, 5NIS ticket, or a nice walk to the Lion's Gate along the olive garden, the neighbourhood didn't make a great first impression, but the people turned out to be...

La mejor vista de Jerusalén, el personal de servicio sumamente amables, excelente comida. El hotel es un poco viejo, pero se compensa con la atención que se recibe. The best view of Jerusalem, the staff very kindness, a lot of great food, quite old but does not matter for the kindness and supperb location.

We spent hardly anytime there so we were not worried the too served a purpose. It was great as right by the Church... More
