You get what you pay for: For the $129/night I paid, a Little House in the Colony seemed to me a step above a youth hostel. You get your own room with a mini bathroom and a wood plank floor. Heating is via an a/c unit mounted below the ceiling, so in December, when I was there, the room stays... More

We chose the Little House in the Colony for its location. We've been to Israel many times, and love the German Colony, and Little House is right in the heart of it. This time, we rented a car-- and to our surprise, parking was not impossible in the area around the hotel. For the first two nights, we stayed in... More

I spent four nights in this well located, very charming and not at all pretentious hotel. The staff was friendly and always available to provide assistance. The breakfast was included in the price and was filling. Coffee was served for free 24/7. I found the rooms confortable although somewhat overpriced but, in any case, Jerusalem is well known for the... More

Business took me to Tel Aviv. Three thousand years of history took me to Jerusalem. In TA to testify in a court case, I added a couple more days to the trip for visiting Jerusalem. Without a traveling companion, with no one to impress, I chose Little House for location and value purposes, and recommend the choice to others. In... More

The staff was terrific. They directed us to a nearby medical facility when my wife injured her wrist. They were also very helpful in directing us around the city and making other arrangements. The room was large for the price and very pleasant.

We spent two nights there - our goal was Jerusalem Festival of Light, and we looked for something colourful, reasonably priced and close to Old City. Little House is located on quiet side street in bohemian upscale German Colony neighbourhood. First of all, location is great - 15-20 minutes to Jaffa Gate, five minutes to First Station compound, quarter hour... More

We've stayed here a couple of times for a week or two. The rooms are basic but clean and quiet. The bathrooms, tiny and tired. The atmosphere is pleasant. It's great to be in German Colony, and for that the price is very reasonable. It's a homey guest house. One odd thing: The billing and pricing system is nearly inscrutable,... More

We chose this small Hotel because of its location in the German Colony and its reasonable rates. Obviously I did not expect a 5 star hotel, but i and my wife were very happy during our stay. The rooms were clean and quiet, the beds VERY comfortable, and as it was quite hot during our stay last week, the bar... More

We choose this hotel as it is in an area where free parking is available.. Also their prices are below what you pay in Jerusalem. There was a smell which wasn't very pleasant and the heavy use of deodorizer did not help. Room was very small and bathroom barely big enough. Breakfast was better than we expected, based on other...

Not a great experience...rooms pretty basic as is breakfast.....however there is not much choice in this area unless you want to pay an arm and a leg. We needed to be in the German Colony for a few days and it served its purpose. If it was not for the location and lack of reasonable alternatives I would not recommend... More
