We were booked here on a tour for five nights. Coming into Jerusalem we did not have high expectations and perhaps that is why we were so pleased with the quality, dining, and service of this hotel. Room was very clean, spacious with details attended to. All our meals were buffets and we gravitated to Middle East fare, mostly salads... More

The hotel seems very impressive when you first see it. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Only minus was that rooms would need a bit of refurbishing, as well as some public areas. Food was very delicious, all kinds of local meals and a separate table just for deserts. The dining room can be a bit crowded, since the buffet... More

Rooms are on the small size but well laid out and comfortable. The lobby and main floor are quite attractive and free internet is available in the lobby. The buffet meals are varied and offer many choices in salads, entrees and desserts. A nice selection of breads are always available during meal hours. The staff is very friendly and helpful....

I had a light cold, Adam, our server, brought me hot water and raw honey, Anas from the front desk went back and forth from his post and my home to take care of my booking; every... More

International clientele. I even ran into people I knew from America. Very nice. Very clean. Wonderful buffet. Had a truly great time. And... More

Great friendly hotel in the middle of Jerusalem. Menu varied, lots of different nations foods. Was full board, so had vast intercontinental breakfast, although it's a Jewish hotel, so the freshness and choices of food were limited on Sabbath. The rooms all air conditioned with baths and showers, most welcome at the end of hot summer. Wi-fi was expensive, so... More

Close to the old town this is the perfect location, in my opinion. Rooms are large and comfortable, lots of great parking (a MAJOR issue in Jerusalem )The only down side is a lack of swimming pool but, as we were there for only 2 nights, we could live with it. Good lifts and a very good buffet dinner and... More
