We stayed at this hotel for four nights as part of a Christian pilgrimage tour. The rooms were spacious and clean and the beds were comfortable. Lighting in room was a bit dim and the only safe deposit box was not in the bedroom but downstairs in the lobby. Staff were very pleasant and helpful. Buffet meal was acceptable but... More

Stayed here for 4 nights. There is good wifi which you do not have to login to each time. There is an issue with available plugs in all hotels in Israel so you need to decide which light you can do without. European adapters work in all 4 that I stayed in. Room itself was quite dated and smelt of... More

I stayed for six weeks in Jerusalem for work spread across three different locations. For an extended stay such as this the Christmas Hotel was absolutely wonderful because of its friendly and welcoming staff and service. The food is very good and the location is amazing. The rooms are a little bit small - to be expected for such a... More

As a frequent traveler to Jerusalem for over 25 years, I have stayed at the Christmas Hotel since the 1990s with tour groups as well as on personal business trips. A great renovation to a boutique hotel was completed about 5-6 years ago making it an excellent choice. The hotel boasts plush carpets in each room and a small elevator... More

Situated about a 10 minute easy and safe walk from the Damascus Gate, this hotel is well located to explore the old city. The reception staff were friendly and helpful. Our room was at the back and had a nice view over the blossoming trees in the courtyard. It was fairly quiet, although a friend who had a front facing... More

The hotel was very pleasant and clean. Our room was on the first floor but only had windows at foot level so was always dark, had to have lights on all the time but the room was good and bathroom good except for this. T.V in room didn't work despite asking at reception twice, if someone could fix it, then... More

The hotel is within walking distance of Old City. Rooms were clean, had a small balcony. Each day at breakfast and dinner a wide variety of food served which was delicious. All staff well trained and friendly. We were there for 4 nights and when we made a request for mint tea they asked each day after if we would... More

A parish pilgrimage: 5 nights in Jerusalem. Quiet and comfortable rooms, 10 minutes from Damascus Gate and the arab bus station, with a pleasant courtyard garden which is bigger than the photos suggest. Friendly and helpful staff who were thoughtful and attentive to our needs. Excellent range of hot and cold buffet at breakfast and dinner...on our last night the... More

I stayed in this hotel on a package tour. It was perfectly comfortable and the rooms were quiet, but the decor was very dated. The food was plentiful and there was a good choice, with a buffet for both evening meals and breakfast, and had a middle eastern flavour without being too spicy. The staff were helpful and efficient.

I stayed at this hotel as part of a package so can't comment on their prices. The rooms were perfectly acceptable (although there were no tea/coffee facilities in the rooms. There's a fridge though so it could be worth bringing a travel kettle as a small cup of tea in the hotel was 10 shekels - nearly £2). The staff... More
