This is a lovely old building , lots of antiques. It is a renovated Palestinian mansion. The atmosphere is nice and the staff are all kind and helpful. Our room on the ground floor was spacious and the ensuite shower was good. Plenty of hot water etc. Food in the restaurant is good , and breakfast was plentiful and we had lots of choice. The hotel is ideally located for the old centre. It is a 5 minute walk to Damascus Gate. This is an ideal location. Lots of good places to eat nearby. If you like old world charm, and hospitality this is the place for you. It is not a soul less 5 star hotel, but that is it's charm. Would not hesitate to stay here again , or recommend to friends and family.

I loved the atmosphere in this hotel. It is a renovated Palestinian mansion packed with antiques. Our room on the first floor had a lovely little balcony and was very spacious. There is a restaurant/ terrace at the front where breakfast is served. Locals use it too which adds to the authenticity of this place. It is about a 5 minute walk to the Damascus gate and the old town. If you want something more than bland chain hotels stay here.

If you want to experience the true meaning of "home away from home", then this is your place. Recently visited the hotel for the second time. The location is a 3 minutes walk to the Old City with all what it has to offer. The renovated authentic Palestinian hotel turned home boasts quite a collection of antique and vintage items that adorn the hallways and the rooms. From the famous Palestinian cross stitch embroidered runners to the intricate wood work with the verses of poetry on top of the doors to the old thob etc, all add to charm of the place. The friendly staff at the reception desk, restaurant and house keeping spare no effort to make your stay comfortable. I raise my hat to each and everyone and look forward to visiting with you again. Thank you all!

WA family in Nazareth made reservations for us at the Jerusalem Hotel. When we arrived, we were treated with Arab hospitality. We were offered a refreshing glass of limonana. Our room was clean and spacious, full of character with beautiful antiques and stonework, and up to date with modern conveniences. The staff were helpful and kind, treating us almost like we were long-lost family. We were in walking distance of the old city and Gordon’s Calvary and the Garden Tomb. Walking along the walls of the Old City from the Damascus Gate to the Tower of David was wonderful. We felt the ambience and utter security. In the morning (and for the rest of our stay) there was a full spread of Arab breakfast foods, with all the additional items Americans and Europeans would want. Raed Sadeh, the owner, took us to Bethlehem and to some off-the-beaten-track shops, away from the tour buses. He introduced us to his friends. We were impressed with his kindness. Each day Raed arranged for us to have a private car and driver to take us on our excursions. The only downside was an overly-happy driver one day, and a car air conditioner that couldn’t keep up along the Dead Sea on another day. When it was time to leave, they arranged transportation to the bus station, personally said good-bye, and treated us to another glass of limonana. We are not rich nor famous, just ordinary Americans from the Mid-West. The price was very reasonable. The food was excellent. Raed and the staff went the extra mile. The head waiter was a gem. This is definitely the place to stay.
