My room had a full sized bed and enough room to move around in for 1 person, it might have been a little snug for 2. Also had a private bathroom with shower and good a/c. The room could use a little upgrading but was very clean.The owner or manager not sure which was very helpful and even let me...

When my husband, sister & I were planning our two night trip to Jerusalem we wanted a hotel that was a little different, something a bit 'quirky' and, as we had a budget, good value was important to us. We emailed the hotel to make enquiries pricewise & Eli's response was prompt, concise & included advice about parking & arriving...

I was here with my wife, sister, a friend and her son for 2 nights. Arrived in the afternoon on Shabbat, when everything else was closed, so huge thanks for the welcoming fruits and cold drinks, (and ice-cream for the little one) to Eli Wasserman who was a fantastic, friendly and fastidious host. Our room was a first class example...

Budget is what you pay and budget is what you get. Don't expect a 5* room but it's placed in a fantastic location, all the best of the old and new city. Safe, secure hotel with a friendly owner. I spent all day outside exploring Jerusalem and dead sea so was fine to get back in the evening and just...

We booked this hotel because it was close to everything and it worked out really well. Mr Wasserman was super friendly, and being from Australia, he nicknamed me Kangaroo! We found it a little tricky to get to the hotel so Mr W left his office and met us and personally escorted us to his Hotel. How often does that...

If you are looking for a clean, boutique, cheap hotel in a great location, this is the hotel for you!! The facilities are just what we needed, nothing flashy or modern, but clean and functional; high pressured hot shower and cold airconditioned rooms. The hotel is situated close to many eateries and bars and only walking distance to old jerusalem....

This small hotel is located in an excellent point of west Jerusalem. It's walking distance from the old city but also just one block from Ben Yehuda and its numerous cafes and restaurants. There is a tram stop just outside the hotel, quite useful for reaching the bus station or other areas of the city. What's best about this hotel...
