“In a busy location, close to all amenities.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2012

This hotel is in between Herods and Damacus gate. Both gates are less than 5 mins walk. There are convenience stores, eating huts, fruit stalls within 1 min from the hotel. It is in a muslim area but ofcourse is no issue. Most of the hotel staff are friendly, my room wasnt noisy although the area is noisy for most parts of the day.The rooms are pretty much standard 3 star rooms. I didnt have a mini bar in my room(standard room booked). The toilet was good enough. In a nutshell its not a luxury hotel by any means.The rooftop restuarant is a brilliant place to eat and just relax and watch hustle and bustle of the area. They have festive evenings on the rooftop restuarant frequently when they serve hot food, sing and play music, and have arabian dancers. The hotel is safe place to be. Walking to the New gate of the old city is about 10-15 mins depending on how fast you walk. Mamilla, a upmarket shopping area is about 10-15 mins walk aswell. The hotel is a bit pricey but the perfect location makes up for it and i will certainly be staying here again on my next visit.

Room Tip: Getting a room with a view of the old city wall is not really worth paying the extra bit of cash bec...

Hi, I recently went on Pilgramage with McCabe Pilgrimages , For 4 nights we stayed in the Golden Walls Hotel in Jerusalem, we were made very welcome, the staff were all very efficient and helpful, the food was very good and varied. The Sultan eveniing was very good with lots of dancing and delicious food, the hotel is very well placed for the Old City and the Biblical sites, we enjoyed going up on the roof garden inthe evening looking out over the City walls, the rooms were clean and spacious.

Don't be put off by the very strange exterior! Once upstairs one is in a different world. The rooms were very comfortable and clean. The food was very good served as a buffet and there was plenty of everything. The staff were friendly and helpful. The roof garden gave excellent views of the city walls and also the hustle and bustle of the street outside. Access to the Old City was very easy. Although there were several groups of pilgrims staying there from many parts of the world, the staff coped extremely well.

Good stay here, excellent location . The room was spacious, clean and well equipped . The food was very good , a wide choice and above average service. Garden terrace has a great view but needs more comfortable seating . Reception staff polite and helpful , Champions League greatly enjoyed ! Would return one day .

We visited the Golden Walls as part of a package with Mc Cabe pilgrimages of the UK and found it to be very satisfactory. The staff were most helpful and the location excellent, very close to the Damascus Gate.Not 4 star by UK standards but most suitable for our needs. The buffet service for both breakfast and dinner provided a very wide variety dishes.

Room Tip: Rooms to the rear are quieter, but those at the front have more interesting outlook over the old cit...

Very good location not far from the markets and famous sites, all within walking distance, the food was good and the staff were polite and helpful, slight dated decor but this was the only fault.
Also tv in my room was not working, small quirk and I'm sure if I had mentioned this is it would have been resolved but you won't want to stay in and watch tv anyway!
