The hotel is conveniently located approx 10 mins walk from the Garden Tomb and a few more minutes brings you to the Damascus Gate of the old city. It is one of three large hotels side by side with the front of the hotel on a quiet road. The entrance to the hotel, and its associated public areas, shop and bar, are impressive. But the room was a bit disappointing. There was a kettle and a fridge but nothing in the fridge! The bed linen was not up to standard, with the bottom sheet being too small and thin, it would not stay tucked in. The duvet looked creased and crumpled when I got there. There was a smell of drains in the bathroom, which I decided was mould on the bottom of the shower curtain. The house-keeping was very poor with glasses and cups not washed out, and beds just pulled up with no attention to detail.
The restaurant is large and at the weekend, with Shabbat it was crowded and noisy. Meals are buffet style and have an impressive variety of dishes. The staff were attentive and efficient in restocking the buffet and clearing used plates. Israeli wine and beer were available at a reasonable price. It is a generally good place to stay location wise but dont expect five star housekeeping!
Some in our group had things stolen from them in Jerusalem old town, so be aware this is a problem.
