My husband and I wanted an Israeli Experience – one in which we would be immersed in the culture and surroundings and arrange our own tours at our pace and schedule.. We decided to spend one month in Jerusalem and use this as our base to explore this magnificent city and also travel to other parts of Israel. We chose the Allenby II B & B based on its wonderful reviews, its affordability, and it more than surpassed our expectations.
First of all, the location of the Allenby couldn’t be better. The light rail is just down the hill and we were in the old city in less than 10 minutes. It is also an enjoyable walk. On the other end of the light rail is Mount Herzl which led us to Yad Vashem and other places of interest. Also, we could walk to the Israeli Museum (which we did on Saturdays) and the Supreme Court and Knesset. The central bus station is five minutes away. This was definitely a plus and we went everywhere by bus and even ate and did some shopping at the many shops in the bus station.
Secondly, the people at the B&B were extremely friendly and we thoroughly enjoyed the many conversations with such a diverse group at breakfast time. We also looked forward to returning to the B&B after a long day to sit and chat and enjoy the company of others.
And finally, we can’t say enough about our host- Danny Flax. He was a font of knowledge and always went out of his way for us - arranging tours, making phone calls, and suggesting hotels and restaurants. My husband broke his toe and Danny walked us to the nearby clinic. He even called us when we left to make sure we returned home safely. Danny’s sister was also extremely helpful making arrangements for us. We felt that this was our home away from home in one of the most interesting cities in the world. We highly recommend this B&B.
