This is the third time that I have used the Olive Tree as a leader of groups to Israel. I have never regretted it. They did an incredible job of navigating some difficult situations with our group, making everyone happy. The food is great, atmosphere incredible, and the location is perfect.

I am pastor of an Evangelical Christian Church from Queens NY, and for the last 10 years we are visiting Holy Land and biblical sites around the world in pilgrimage. We choose again for this year the Olive Tree in Jerusalem because is a wonderful place to rest, eat and to receive a outstanding good service.

On arrival we were greeted by the most delicious bread olive oil and spice (wish I knew what it was). Hotel was clean airy and well maintained. The room was elegant and comfortable, unfortunately we overlooked a wall from the adjacent hotel, but not a problem. Wifi free in lobby and bar. The restaurant served a plentiful buffet with good...

I haven't been for quite a while in Jerusalem, my wife made the reservation. IT is walking distance 5 to 10 minutes to Damaskus gate, depending how fast you walk. The hotel has a stylish architecture, the stuff is friendly. Some waiters in the breakfast room have potential to explore, I would better like an automatic coffee machine than asking... More

Several buses on tour stopped here for lunch. Lovely atrium room was used for buffet of great salads, chicken, beef, pasta and fish. Waiters efficiently filled wine glasses and removed plates when done. Tasted very good and was even kosher!

The Olive Tree Hotel is a good place for touring groups to stay. The food is good and generous (buffet breakfast and dinner), the rooms clean and attractive, and the staff helpful. I like the location in East Jerusalem. It is about a 12-15 minute walk in pretty much a straight line to the Damascus Gate. I would lead folks... More

We spent 6 nights at the Olive Tree. Rooms were good and well maintained. Buffet meals were very good and wait staff were attentive and helpful. Location of the hotel was good and it was an easy walk into the old city via the Damascus Gate. The area around the hotel felt safe and we walked the area quite a... More

This is a very fine hotel,but we did have issues. The wifi is a massive irritant. It was slow,dodgy and the time is past that it should cost a bloody fortune. This rankled greatly. The performance was sadly,way sub par too. Our room,upgraded for a price,was fine,but no view of anything except the better rooms' balconies. The food was good,but... More
