This is one of Jerusalem's best kept secrets...shhhh, don't tell too many people.
My sister initially stayed here on the advice of her travel agent. Once I saw where she was staying and compared it to the large hotel where I was booked, I cancelled my hotel reservations and immediately booked at the Montefiore Hotel.
How do I love this hotel? Let me count the ways:
1) The price is right!
2) It's clean
3) The gentleman originally from Russia is by far the nicest employee in the hotel (the women are fairly cold and unpleasant) and he made me feel welcomed. He's pictured on their website; he's a wonderful first impression employee.
4) The cleaning crew is friendly and helpful
5) You can walk to most places; super convenient
6) The rooms are comfortable and cozy
7) Breakfast is respectable
8) The neighborhood is charming and safe
9) There are quaint restaurants and corner stores right there
10) You're in the heart of Jerusalem in a fine hotel in the middle of the city! Sweet life.
11) Locals stay there, lots of Israelis use this hotel, which is nice if you want to avoid the throngs of tour groups
After having stayed at this hotel on a prolonged vacation in Israel, I booked again, returned to Jerusalem, just so I could enjoy this prime location and property one more time.
In summary, avoid the huge chains and stay here.
