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

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.
