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

I only stayed for lunch, but was completely overwhelmed by the friendliness in this house, although I cannot say that for all Jerusalem. The food was very good, the service excellent, the prices reasonable.

We stayed at this hotel to be close to our family for a wedding in the Old City. The location enabled us to venture out on foot to the Old City as well as be central in Jerusalem. There is so much history and so many cultural sites that one hardly spends any time in their hotel in this town.... More

Rooms are small & modest. No frills. every day the same lunch and dinner, meal low quality. The roooms are clean, but sheets were covered with old stains. I suggest this hotel only for few days stay and only for sleeping; may be better to eat somewhere else.

Room clean, large, comfortable and quiet. Service good, people kind. Restaurant very good for breakfast and dinner. Only 15 minutes walking to Damascus Gate, is perfect to visit the old city. I will go there again.

As a small family group, this was a really good place to stay. We had a driver available for long journeys but wanted to be able to walk to the Old City and it is very well placed for that. It takes about 15 minutes to walk to the Damascus Gate - walk down the hill to the first gate,... More

This hotel perfectly represents Jerusalem, it is magical, cozy, clean, incredibly friendly staff, and affordable. Its location next to the old city makes it easy to commute without the need of a automobile or taxi, and the garden of the hotel is an escape from the hustle of the old city. Excellent hotel.

A pleasant four days' stay in this hotel: food and service standards were very good, rooms were clean, modern and well-presented, with efficient air-conditioning. The restaurant offered a good range of food, well-cooked and with a pleasing choice at each meal, predominantly international in style (we used it for breakfast and evening meal). Restaurant and bar staff were eager to... More

I just finished a week long stay at the Christmas Hotel and I was pleased with all aspects I my stay. The food and service were amazing! The staff were all very friendly and attentive. My only complaint was that I couldn't stay longer! I you're visiting Jerusalem I would definitely recommend staying here!

Having been to Israel before, I expected this last visit to be wonderful, too, but boy, was I wrong ! The hotel seemed pleasant looking but when I went out on my own, I realized that I was in the heart of east Jerusalem which is predominately muslim, which made it difficult for me to get around easily.....the walk from...
