The Mt. Zion hotel is located just outside the Old City of Jerusalem, about a 10-15 minute walk from the German Colony (with lots of shops and restaurants) and accessible to the Old City by foot. Our room had a gorgeous view of the Old City and the Mount of Olives, which was just an incredible way to wake up in the morning. The rooms weren't quite as luxurious or as big as they appear on the website, but they were clean and comfortable, and each room had lovely decor - I think we stayed in the newer part of the building. The lobby is big and beautiful, with a bar, comfortable chairs and a great view - a great place to hang out. The breakfast was excellent! Lots of salads, yogurts, fresh fruit, and some hot dishes. The little shop in the lobby actually has pretty good prices on some jewelery and things we saw elsewhere in the city.
My only complaint is really the price. It's a very expensive hotel (~$350-400/night) and personally I would have expected to pay $200-250. I think you pay in part for the location and the amenities (it was off-season so we didn't use the pool or Hammam, and we didn't use the spa), and I know Jerusalem is expensive, but it just seems very pricey. In addition, the Wi-Fi was $15/day, which was ridiculous. No free Wi-Fi anywhere, not even in the lobby. We were advised by friends to find a coffee shop where there is often free Wi-Fi.
In all, I really liked this hotel. It was pretty, comfortable, quiet, and had a delicious breakfast, but I would probably only stay here again if there was a special deal going on.
