Excelent ubication, ir you are lucky you could get a room with a beautiful vew to Jerusalem. Anyway is located close to the most importants place of the christianity history. So it has a very special "mágic" to people who is loocking for that kind of places. Also the people who work there are nice and kind. You feel like... More

We did not even checked in. After seeing the piles of garbage at the entrance of the hotel, old discarded mattress and old furniture) The inside of this hotel was simply horrible (blood stains on the carpet, hotel room and the all public areas were very dirty. The light in the room that they were going to give to us... More

By what you will pay for this hotel...don't expect too much . The best part is the location/view . The area can be intimidating when you arrive .... Staff were helpful , even when asking for advice on Jewish and Christian sights to visit, as this is a Arab hotel. We were advised about pick pockets in the area... So... More

So we were looking for a location to start our trips from, and found this hotel. Located on the mount of olives, you can reach the garden gethsemane within 10min, the church of the ascension is just a feet away, and you can see Jerusalem at night perfectly. So regarding this, it was perfect. But if you are not used... More

Found this hotel not tripadvisor and booked it for one week. Wanted to be on the mount of olives around many historical sites. Great staff, always helpful and great free breakfast. Restaurant across the street was wonderful, amazing falaffels. Walking to the old city can be tiring...takes about 20 minutes depending on how quick you walk down a large hill... More

Our first impression of the hotel was favourable - the guys working at this hotel were so friendly and helpful! The hotel itself was quite old and smelled faintly of smoke. Our room was old, but fairly well kept and clean. For the price, it seemed like a great value. The free wireless internet advertised was not working and there... More

I stayed here with a friend from 2nd March 2014 for a week. The hotel was very helpful and picked us up from the airport using the local taxi service from At-tur (note that Israeli taxis will not drive to this hotel). The checkin process was straight forward and the guy behind the reception was very helpful. Breakfast was extra... More

This was the most expensive and by far the worst accommodation we had in Israel. The room was freezing and the heater was broken. There is no wifi in the rooms. We were told that breakfast was not included. All this for 60€ a night? On top of that the room looked out onto the street and this of course... More

Easy hotel to find but got to pay a taxi to get up the hill to avoid a long slog. Taxi is £5 a pop. The staff here are friendly enough without exactly laying out a red carpet. For Israel it is quite cheap but compared to other parts of the world what you gt for your money is pretty... More

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
