A nice and simple hotel worth of your money, above a 0-24 shop which has everything you will need. The old city is just a few minutes walk. Gidon, the owner is very kind and helpful - he was very flexible and understanding when we had illness troubles.

Use "hotel" loosely - its more like a private room in a hostel. There is no hotel front desk or reception - it's only 7 rooms run next door by the Grocery store. The staff at the Grocery store (the person at the grocery check out cash register is the person who checks you into the rooms) were exceptionally rude.... More

5mn walk from the old city and from bars and restaurants downtown jerusalem. nice rooms and very clean. The hotel has no reception so ask to the cashier at supermarket which is the same owner. Cleaning rooms every morning but no breakfast. When you arrive a present is waiting for you : a bottle of wine and some fruits .

As said, it is not a hotel, just a few rooms managed by the supermarket owners. The location is great to explore both the new and the old city. There are nice bars and restaurants nearby. Just walking distance from Jaffa gate. We had room 102 which is very comfortable and has a great view! The service was not great... More

It is not an hotel but some rooms well cleaned and modern. The best quality if this "hotel" is its position: near every place you want to reach and visit in Jerusalem. It is near the Jaffa Gate (3 minutes walking) and near a number of restourants and pubs in the modern part of the city. But do not consider... More

This is not a hotel, just some guest rooms. There is no lobby, no desk, just 8 rooms off a hall, run by the 24-hour supermarket guys below. Rooms are tiny but clean (though smelly). Supermarket owner promised to reserve Nesher group taxi for return to airport but instead some friend showed up w/ a taxi (much more expensive) and... More

It was not a hotel at all, just 8 tiny box rooms above a supermarket on a very busy road. No lobby, reception area etc. It was stuffy and very smelly, someone tried to mask the smells with a lot of air freshener frequently making it even worse. The three rooms facing the road do have large windows, the rooms... More

I just have one word to describe this hotel: magnificent I had had the room 102. Fight for this room, tip, bribe do whatever you want to have it. I am attaching some pictures from inside the room. There was an enormous glass wall facing the street intersection. I was feeling like I had my private IMAX looking the people... More

I moved from YMCA to City Jerusalem as I had completed my business trip and am extending my stay on my personal budget. I wanted to stay somewhere affordable. I expected this hotel to be shabby as YMCA was kinda shabby. I am pleasantly surprise! It was clean! Smelled great, clean bathrooms, bed sheets, floors, cupboards! I thought to myself... More

We drove to Jerusalem from Tel Aviv and spotted the hotel door 5 minutes after arriving. we had not done any booking. The door was closed, but when we rang the bell, a Young man popped out from the supermarket on the side, and told us the reception was in there ! The man behind the cashier was obviously the... More
