Have been there twice and it is a great place to stay. We loved the rooms and the staff was helpful with information about the city and places. I love Jerusalem and hope to get back soon. I thank the people at the Olive Tree for being so nice to me. Next year in Jerusalem! Hopefully.

I liked this hotel. It is clean and staff friendly. The restaurant was the best because of quality, choice and quantity . My only problem was the hotel lost power while I was in the lobby. Being an American, and daughter and mother to firefighters, my brain went to all the things that it could be. This was also the... More

Stayed at this hotel with our tour group from Australia organised by Dakkak Tours. The hotel lobby area was quite nice with lots of places to sit and relax and was the best place to pick up wifi. The rooms were nice and clean however they were a bit smaller than I expected although some of our group were lucky... More

The story of the olive tree was very intriguing . It was a highlight of our visit to Jerusalem. There is a nice gift shop connected which has affordable souvenirs. The buffet we had was right around the olive tree. Food was very good. I think no one in the group could say they went away without having something to... More

The hotel and the rooms are very nice. The food is average. The hotel is an easy walk to the Damascus Gate. The staff is friendly and courteous. The hotel is much smaller than the hotel next door. The hotel does not have a swimming pool.

The room was quiet, comfortable,and clean. Had 2 dinner buffet style meals which were both well stocked and delicious. The bathroom tub shower was... More

Hotel is conveniently located. Food was very good. Lobby area is nice and meeting rooms convenient. Rooms are adequate and bathroom was small and shower did not really close. Nice gift shop on premises.

I stayed in this hotel over 5 nights. It is a decent hotel. The room met my expectations. There is a small refrigarator where you can keep your water, etc cold (it is not filled up by the management). Basic toiletary is supplied in the bathroom (no hair conditioners though). The shower worked well. It was OK in terms of... More
