Logging is very pricey in Jerusalem, thus paying $100/night in a decent place is very good bargain.
Spent 4 nights there around Passover.
Location - not the best (East Jerusalem), but nothing really bad if you are open-minded.
Also except couple $400/night places most of the hotels are like this one.
Taxi to/from Old city was only 40-50 sh (you still need to bargain). I would NOT recommend to use the bus
Rooms - tiny, but clean and with good shower.
Breakfast - plentiful, with non-kosher food too. Usually we need to eat next time only around 3pm.
Internet - worked, but slow in busy hours.
HVAC - central, new, very quiet.
Service - very friendly, most speak good English.
Parking - they claim free parking on-site. In reality it's free parking on the busy street, and not so many free spots there. Still was possible, but difficult sometimes.
Restaurant - NO evening restaurant. The "Rooftop" they mention on the website is closed for reconstruction. And NO place to eat at night in neighborhood either (Arab village). So be warned - eat in the City, or buy some food in a small shop nearby.
