We arrived early in the morning (5 am). We got our room key and had some sleep before the day. You have many choices for a breakfast in the streets. Hotel is small, it feel like home. They look after you like a friend or a family member. Location is very good in Zion Square. You can walk to old... More

Nothing luxurious in this small hotel ... however ... the room was clean and warm, the bed comfortable, the air conditionning was working and the water was hot :))) It is a very good choice when you are looking for a budget hotel. In addition, the ownwer is very friendly and the location is perfect (1 tram stop from old... More

We chose the Kaplan Hotel because of its location AND because of its reputation for providing quality accommodations at budget prices, and we were not disappointed on either count! The location couldn't be better, in the centre of pedestrian paradise. The tram is steps away and you can walk to the shuk and the old city in 10 minutes. When... More

We enjoyed our stay at the Kaplan hotel. A great location; walking distance to Machane Yehuda and shopping as well as the old city. The Yafo street light train line was a simple and fast way to get over to Mount Herzl in no time. No breakfast included, but lots of good choices just out the door and a fresh... More

The Kaplan Hotel is a fairly bare bones place to stay on the main drag in Jerusalem. It is right across the street from Zion Square, off Jaffa Street, and is pretty busy (and noisy) every night (including Shabbat). Eli, and his brother, are very hospitable and pleasant. There is a common room with a kitchen, refrigerator, small table, with... More

Excellent location in a very center of Jerusalem, 10 minutes to old city by foot. Basic, not luxury at all, but there is everything you need for a perfect stay. Clean, cosy rooms, strong wifi. No breakfast, but there is a small kitchen with free tea and coffee. Main bar / restaurant street is just outside the hotel. Very welcoming... More

We've spent 3 nights in Kaplan hotel, and it was a perfect place for our group of friends. The host is really nice and helpfull, he explained us different jewish traditions, also told about he's own expierence in the past (army, war, etc.). The place is right in the center of the Jerusalem nightlife, so be prepared of crowded street... More

Treat yourself and stay here. Eli makes your stay in this magical city even more special. Kaplan Hotel is a wonderful part of the adventure. The room is fine - clean and comfortable enough. The location is near boisterous Zion Square. My husband and I are in our mid-50's and were here at the end of Sept '13. A Great... More

We were 3 and our room was clean and had 2 single and a bunk bed. It helped us to spread out our belongings. It even had a little balcony. Strong wifi in the room is a big plus. You can use the kitchen for tea and coffee. No breakfast but there are many cafe and restaurants around Zion Square... More

This hotel is probably good value for the money, but you must be prepared to deal with some definite inconveniences and issues. There are reasons why this place is relatively low cost, even though it is in an excellent location. There are also reasons why it has received good reviews. In my opinion, it's a very mixed bag.
