We arrived at the hotel after a very long, sweaty and dusty crossing from Jordan over the Allenby Bridge. So this gorgeous, green oasis of an hotel was like a mirage. We had a drink in the Summer Garden as soon as we came, with a nice breeze and great service. The restaurant where they have breakfast has lots of... More

An amazing treasure in Jerusalem! it starts with a smile and inviting door man warm welcome at front desk from "smiley" Mrs Diana Aho of front office and it's goes to her colleges. As to the resturant, well, an authentic Arab cousin with world twist and one of the best bakery ever taste. It is conducted by Mr Sami with... More

We spent six nights here as part of a tour with Nat Geo and it was a fantastic hotel and location. Although we checked in at 1:00am, the comfortable, cute room with a balcony was heaven after long flights. We ventured out to the old city the next day. The front desk was very helpful in directing our way and... More

Hotel is beautiful, rooms just average (for regular room), I heard suites are great but hotel requested a lot for an upgrade. Hotel is on the new light rail, 2 stops to old city. Great breakfast, especially if you are sitted in the courtyard

This hotel provided good service such as cleaned your shoes for free, timely did laundry, and were friendly and helpful but it was a good walk to other restaurants and to the old city. The restaurant we tried in the hotel was the grill and it was adequate but nothing special. The complimentary breakfast was alright but did not offer... More

Dear Belinda, Thank you for reviewing our hotel. We do offer omelets at breakfast “made to order” and many guests avail themselves of this service. Perhaps the sign was not visible enough, we shall try and place it in a more prominent place, but your waiter should have informed you anyway. It would appear that apart from that you quite... More

What a hotel!! Its as much a part of Jerusalem's history as the city itself. From Lawrence of Arabia to General Allenby (who led the Allied Forces in 1917), the place has seen a string of visitors over the last century and is a virtual museum!! I loved the hotel as it has a charm that is so difficult to... More

I have stayed, eaten and relaxed in this oasis of a hotel many times over the years. The welcome, standards of service, accommodation and quality have been consistently excellent. After a hard and sometimes hot day it is the best place to be in Jerusalem for good food and relaxation.

I am back after just over a year, and amazingly two staff remembered me ! I have to say that was almost worth the money. I don't often stay at expensive hotels but i made an exception after my stay last year. There is a small museum in the hotel I was able to visit which explains how "it" started... More
