We were in Jerusalem last month to celebrate our son as he graduated from IDF Paratrooper basic training. We phoned the Montefiore direct a few months early and booked a couple of rooms a reasonable rate (for Jerusalem). Little did we know that at the last minute our Chayal son invited another lone soldier to spend the night with us. Even though the hotel was quite full and that it was late at night, the friendly night manager arranged to have someone find a cot and to bring it into the room with extra towels. We always have found the staff friendly and helpful and this stay was no exception.
We love this hotel. The decor is pleasant, the rooms are -- shall we say 'cozy'. But it's really quite comfortable. What we want when we travel is a clean, safe, reasonably priced place in a fantastic location -- on all these counts the Montefiore fits the bill. The no-traffic pedestrian street they are located on offers a quiet night's sleep. Their breakfast is not opulent but the food is fresh, hardy and plentiful.
A small annoyance (and this is really quite small) this stay was the fact that the WiFi never worked in our room (despite calling several times and the desk clerk saying that they would look into it). We had internet through our cell phones and WiFi the hotel lobby, so it was not that big a deal.
In all, it was a great stay. We'll be back!
