What I liked the hotel: very convenient, It is only 10 to15 minutes from the old city and 20 from the center and shopping mall by foot. The buffet breakfast and dinner had a variety. Cons: They did not have free internet, only in the lobby, the suite was small, and has no iron in the room, but only one... More

I found this a nice hotel with a decent buffet and only 15-20 min walk from old Jerusalem. Some of the rooms have a nice balcony overlooking the city. It seems the hotel was one of the best hotel in the city sometime ago, but it is still well maintained. The staff was nice as well. I recommend it.

This hotel has a constant stream of tour groups. The rooms badly need updating and one in our group could not get the air conditioning to work. There are no rooms with queen size beds, just twin beds pushed together. The food was all buffet style, the entrees were bland although I liked the fresh fruit and vegetables as well... More

We spent several days here as our group toured the region. It was clean, decorated nicely, and in a very central location. The staff was nice and the food was "pretty good." The hotel has a pretty nice dining / meeting area for large groups. All in all, I'd happily stay there again.

We spent a long, summer shabbat (sabbath) in the neighbourhood, and needed somewhere to stay. The lobby is spacious and pleasant, breakfast was inviting and plentiful. We had a standard (superior) room. The room was a bit tired, but clean and comfortable (except for the foam pillow). The bathroom is no longer in the flush of youth, and very cramped.... More

Room was a little small but was adequate. It was clean. Good customer service from the Front Desk and Maintenance. Near the Old City. Good dinner and breakfast buffets. Free WiFi in the Lobby. Good Security.

Great location, older hotel but comfortable, and convenient with awesome breakfast and dinner buffets. Good shops within the hotel with friendly and helpful staff. If returning to Jerusalem would repeat my stay.

Didn't have too much trouble with the internet in the lobby; then again, we usually used it while waiting for breakfast to open at 6 a.m. so we didn't have much competition for bandwidth. The wifi coverage didn't even extend into the dining room, though. Food was great; lots of choices. Coffee was rather weak, but for the most part,... More

We stayed five nights at the Olive Tree Hotel in Jerusalem and it was a very pleasant property. The rooms were good, large enough for a desk and surely adequate. We heard very little outside noise and none from the other residents in the hallway. We were close to the elevator which I usually don't like, but this room had... More
