To begin with the positive: A good location at the mount olive in walking distance to the old city. However on the way back it is very steep up the hill... the rooms and the beds are okay and quiet. Nevertheless the hotel is a wreck that reminded me of some hotels in Russia or in Romania. Wear-down, mass-style tourism. There are always big groups there, many from Russia and Eastern Europe. I wonder what discount they might get. However: The hotel is not expensive and when you don't want to spend to much time in the place it might be okay. However I think that there are unexpensive places near to the old city that are nicer than this place.
