"Mr Wassermam" was friendly, helpful and has a great sense of humour, hotel is very basic, but clean and quiet. Was given a lovely fruit platter to enjoy as well as cream as we where a little sun burnt from tel aviv beach. Bottle of water in room. Nice classical music playing on Friday afternoon. Make sure everyone stops to... More

The Kaplan Hotel is a great place to stay in Jerusalem. It's small and basic but clean and friendly and you just cannot beat the location. It's right on Zion Square in the heart of downtown West Jerusalem just steps from dozens of bars, cafes, restaurants streetlife etc. And it's only a ten minute walk to the Old City in... More

Very nice hotel owner, when we first arrived in the hotel, he gave us city map and told us information about Jerusalem, very nice person! Location is excellent, only 4 tram stops to the Central Bus Station, and only 10-15 mins walking distance from the old city, the surrounding is clean and safe.

A good place to stay for a couple of days when you are in Jeruzalem. It is not the most luxurious hotel but it is definitely worth the money. Kaplan hotel lies at the famous Yaffo street, in walking distance to a lot of bars, restaurants, snackbars and very important: in walking distance to the old city. The only disadvantage... More

The hotel is situated just out side the old city, it is about 15 mins walk to get there. The walk to the city takes you along Jaffa Street right to Jaffa Gate, you can't go wrong. The service from Natan was 2nd to none making you feel very welcome, and he took time to explain what to do and... More

Hotel is in great location in center of Jerusalem. It is closed to the Old city (5 minutes by walk), restaurants, markets, churches, walking street. Staff is friendly, flexible and helpful. Hotel is clean, you get free towels and linen.

נתן דער בעל הבית קוקט גיט נאך זיינער אורחים Great location and amazing service. Natan, the owner, is a fine guy who looked after me well. This is not a luxury five star hotel by any stretch but it is kept clean, the beds are big and comfortable, and the location is hard to match. As it is the center... More

As I walked in this hotel I felt the hommy environment. My little cozy room was wonderful with great beds and AC and good service! I had my privacy and i felt just like in my own bed. As I told the guys, if I could I would become a member! Nothing like this cute hotel! Come here and enjoy!

This is a small cute hotel in the very centre of Jerusalem. It is close to the old city, walking streets, markets, restaurants, churches and mosques, antique sellers and various cafes. There is a tram outside the hotel and also a few buses just a short walk away. Like everyone who stayed here we love Eli and Nathan who host... More
