We stayed here 2 weeks as part of an Associates for Biblical Research Archeology Dig. Good food (breakfast buffet, we packed our own lunches from their lunch buffet, & dinners) with plenty of variety, friendly service, and clean hotel. Facility/fixtures a bit dated, but adequate. Convenient to Old City.

Don't expect a Ritz. It was an old hotel but newly renovated. Very clean with a very friendly and helpful staff. They seemed to be the kind of people who repay kindness with more kindness. They would go out of their way to do little things for you like making little pack lunches for day trips at no extra cost.... More

Quiet locaation in East Jerusalem, 15 minutes walk from Old City. As before, good service and friendly staff. The single room this time was more spacious as the one I had in the past, but was located beside the elevator - more noise. Dinner and breakfast has a good selection and were tasty. WiFi worked well. Summary: Good solid tourist... More

The staff were very helpful. Looks like the inside was recently updated. It was very nice. The hotel is in East Jerusalem. The Palestinians are wonderful hosts. I would recommend this as a good location for visiting the Old City of Jerusalem.

The reviews about this hotel - in my opinion - are grossly misleading. I can't believe TripAdvisor made it a winning hotel for 2015. When we arrived, there was a massive dumpster on the pavement across the street from the hotel entrance. It was full and smelly. Reception was unhelpful, and unfriendly to boot (Except on the last as we... More

I arrived at this hotel, which was booked through my travel agent and found the whole place locked up and dark. As I was wondering what to do a man in very dirty work clothes told me that the hotel was closed and I would be taken to another hotel by taxi. I'd never heard of this other hotel and... More

I stayed at the hotel for 2 weeks and found the accommodations fantastic. The staff went out of their way to assist our group's needs. Difficulties were handled in a timely manner. The food was great. There is easy access to the old city and the immediate neighborhood provides some nice shopping. Weakness was poor wi-fi service.
