This hotel is a no frills, clean and basic lodging within a short walk of the old city for anyone who wants to save their shekels. Directly across from the luxe King David, this lovely historic building offers a full buffet breakfast (included with your stay), friendly staff and an indoor or outdoor restaurant.

I don't know where to begin... This hotel was recommended by my friend who lives in Israel.,.across from the King David hotel for a fraction of the price! Rabie who works the front desk, is a HUGE asset for this hotel... although everybody there was ready with a helpful hand and a quick smile. Rabie helped us in numerous ways....going... More

We typically stay at a Marriott in Tel Aviv while visiting Israel but we decided that for Passion Week, we would stay in Jerusalem. We were pleased with our decision. The YMCA is located right near Old Jerusalem. While the rooms are nothing special, they are sufficient and I was happy to save US $400 per night (easily) to stay... More

This hotel is so beautiful. The building itself is old and castle-like, and the foyer boasts a stunning, wall-sized stained glass window. The location cannot be beat, either. Just a 10 minute walk from the Old City, it's easy to get around to all of the ancient sites. If you're up for it, you can even walk from the Mt.... More

This magnificent building was completed in 1933. it is opposite the King David Hotel and it is 15 min walking distance from Jaffa Gate. It is close to Ben-Yeuda street and the Shuk is 30 min from the Hotel. The rooms are ok with every facility with en suite bathroom. The rooms on the back side of the building are... More

This is a great and beautiful place that is located close to all the historical sites you will want to see in this city. Only Yad Vashem or Bethlehem or Ramallah would need a taxi or bus. There's a pool too! There's gas station across the street to fill your fridge with water, beer or snacks.

We booked the hotel because of its location which is fabulous as is the building. Impressive architecture on the outside and the reception area is beautiful. Check out the ceiling. There it all end. We had problems checking in as they insisted that we had cancelled even though we could show them our print out which they disputed. They took... More

Heard that the burger was great here. You can even get cheese. I'm not sure how to communicate a well cooked burger. It came to the table bloody. Try the pasta with mushroom sauce instead. Stay away from the burger.

I thought this was a great hotel, but it depends on your priorities. This hotel is not for travelers that are seeking luxury. This hotel is definitely for you if your priorities are location, cleanliness and economy. Staying at this hotel is a little bit like going back in time, which I think gives it character and makes it a... More

This magnificent building looks ancient but was only completed in 1933. You can't miss it because of its huge tower and it is in the centre of West Jerusalem, opposite the King David Hotel. The manager is always a Christian, and there are two deputy managers, one Muslim and one Jewish. Everyone gets on famously, everyone who stays there loves... More
