My partner and I were on a 7 day cruise that included a 2 night overnight stay in Israel. Our arrival port was Ashdod, however, we took and paid for the 2 day excursion in Israel with an overnight stay at the Olive Tree Hotel in Jerusalem. On arrival, our first impressions were good, friendly, helpful, a very pleasant hotel... More

On a recent pilgrimage to the Holy Land, we stayed at the Olive Tree Hotel in Jerusalem. The rooms were well-appointed and very comfortable. The meals served at the hotel were delicious! We were travelling with a group of 24 from our church, but were a part of the larger EO Tours. The buffet offered for breakfasts and dinners was... More

This is an ordinary 3 or 4 star tourist hotel in a complex of three hotels not far from the Damascus Gate. We stayed 4 nights. The restaurant staff seem preoccupied all the time with too many hand waving chiefs but sufficient staff. The food is varied and good. The front desk staff are not a barrel of laughs but... More

We stayed one night as part of a cruise comfortable rooms. Buffet good selection of local foods. The bar was an experience. Poor waitress overwhelmed when we returned as a group from seeing sights wanting drinks. Good measures of spirits given. An enjoyable stay.

The hotel is situated in an excellent location. It is only 15 minutes from the old city by foot and 30 minutes from the center of the city. The rooms are spacious and very comfortable. The dining room and meals are ok. The staff at the front desk and at the bar were help full. The only weak spot Wi-Fi... More

Super location. Within walking distance of the Old City. Bus tours appear to be a staple of the hotel's business making it very busy and crowded at certain times. Not a problem for me. Coming from a climate of minus 10 F, we needed a cooler room. Apparently the hotel's air conditioning unit doesn't get turned on until April. The... More

Was there for six days. Accomendations are outstanding. Great Breakfasts and Dinners with lots of choices. Service is polite and quick to take care of you. Lots of tourists from the states were there at the same time. Gift shops are very reasonable and full of small items. Want to go back again. The Olive Tree in the Dining Room... More

Unfortunately I spent a little more time in the Olive Tree than I had planned (I got sick and was unable to join my tour for two days). I have stayed at the Olive Tree before and have found it a great place to stay. It's convenient (I have walked to old town Jerusalem on my own from here). The... More

The place is a walking distance to holy sites. Clean, modern, and great facilities. The only let down i found is the people at the reception area, im sorry to say i believe they need to be retrained with regards to customer service. They dont even smile and I felt like im a complete bother to them that for a... More
