Tzefania Hotel is one of the first hotels in Jerusalem. The hotel was built in 1930 by the Giladis, a couple of Persian origin, and the second generation of the family in the Holy city, which came to Israel for love of Zion, leaving behind all their property. The Hotel stands out among the other houses in the neighborhood, and it is immediately evident that 4 Tzefania is not like another ordinary hotel. All 18 rooms were designed differently from one another, all the rooms are totally renovated with 19th-century furniture, parquet floors and a chandelier in the middle of the room. The goal is that when the guest enters the hotel, he’sll feel the original Jerusalem combined with the new, the authentic and the conservative, where anyone will feel at home.

this is an example of a very well run hotel, the management needs to be congratulated. General Manager does a great job at thanking the guest for her review while also acknowledging the hotel staff. The housekeeper in question is positively endorsed and the manager makes it clear that her work is appreciated within the hotel, which leaves a great impression. Not only that, but the guest is addressed personally, by her name, and invited back for another excellent stay.

Great value for money apartment in Jerusalem. The rooms are super clean and spacious and a mixture of old/modern. Bathroom is lovely. There is coffee/tea in the room. The hotel is decorated beautifully with Jewish memorabilia, and it has been around for long. It was very interesting to stay in this neighborhood of Ultra Ortodox Haredi jews. If you are a woman, please dress modestly!

If you are looking for a Hyatt, this is not the place... however, if you are looking for a comfortable and clean room in the Geulah neighborhood, this is a good choice. Rooms are on the smaller side, so if you are to people and need decent space it may feel cramped. Overall, the beds were comfortable, the room was clean, the shower was okay. the coffee stand in the room was good too. You can check in 24 hours, with the keys being in a lock box, that was a bonus for me too as i showed up at 2 in the morning and was able to get my key and go right to my room. Overall, this was a good and comfortable stay.

Very nice stay in room 301: very clean, big room, big fridge with microwave (can use big kitchen on G/F, but it closes on Shabbat), helpful and friendly staff (checked in early around 9am and was offered homegrown fresh mint tea). Very nice small garden with beautiful plants; mind-boggling amount of artefacts (paintings, pesach seder plates, lamps, menorahs) displayed throughout the common areas, corridors, ceiling and walls. Conveniently situated about 10 min walk to the Shuk (Mahane Yehuda Market) and light rail. Discount supermarket and bakery round the corner. It is in the orthodox Jewish neighborhood so visitors should respect traditions like modest dressing etc. Con: it can be quite noisy in the night because of Shabbat celebration of Jewish neighborhood singing and rejoicing, and traffic noises of buses etc from early in the morning.
