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

We stayed at this hotel for six nights half board as a base for visiting old Jerusalem, the museums and when we visited Massada, En Gedi, the Dead Sea. Bethlehem, Lachish and the Valley of Elah. Very comfortable and clean room with en suite and room safe. Good food but I guess in common with other hotels in Jerusalem, as... More

We spent several days at this hotel and found it a positive experience overall. We were very thankful for unlimited internet access in the lobby area. We paid for access in our room and it worked very well. This hotel caters to large tour groups and handles them with efficiency. Service was fine, the room was clean. The buffets were... More

Conveniently located to a walking distance to important Jerusalem's attractions, the hotel combines a modern design with beatiful elements of the past. The dinning options are outstanding for the price.

The Olive Tree has done a lot of work on its lobby, restaurant (great breakfast buffet!), and common areas, but still needs a lot of work on the rooms. In the rooms, the bathroom was the nicest part, the beds themselves the area most needing improvement.

We stayed at this hotel as part of a trip from a Thomson holidays cruise. We paid extra for dinner bed and breakfast in Jerusalem and for what we paid was only expecting a basic hotel. We were amazed by the bedroom and the public rooms in the hotel, along with the amount of food we had a choice from... More

The room at the Olive Tree Hotel was great, in and of itself. But the room A/C didn't work for the first two nights. Then the A/C didn't work in the lobby for two days. A great experience was diminished by lack of comfort. Food, however, was outstanding; and front desk help was very accommodating. This hotel would deserve a... More

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
