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!

The facilities are just what we needed, nothing flashy or modern, but clean and functional; high pressured hot shower and cold airconditioned rooms.

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... More
