As a small family group, this was a really good place to stay. We had a driver available for long journeys but wanted to be able to walk to the Old City and it is very well placed for that. It takes about 15 minutes to walk to the Damascus Gate - walk down the hill to the first gate,...

This hotel perfectly represents Jerusalem, it is magical, cozy, clean, incredibly friendly staff, and affordable. Its location next to the old city makes it easy to commute without the need of a automobile or taxi, and the garden of the hotel is an escape from the hustle of the old city. Excellent hotel.

A pleasant four days' stay in this hotel: food and service standards were very good, rooms were clean, modern and well-presented, with efficient air-conditioning. The restaurant offered a good range of food, well-cooked and with a pleasing choice at each meal, predominantly international in style (we used it for breakfast and evening meal). Restaurant and bar staff were eager to...

This hotel is a great value, a 10 minute walk to the Damascus Gate, and even closer to the Garden Tomb. The rooms are newly renovated and very nice with small tub and shower with frameless shower door enclosure. My refrigerator was unplugged but was not trouble to plug it in. Wireless was included in the cost of the room...

The Christmas Hotel is located in the wrong side of town, East Jeusalem. If you stay in Jerusaem stay at the Notre Dame or surrounding area. My friend lost her luggage and the hotel did not even have a toothbrush for her. At dinner you had to buy coffee or tea with your meal. The molding around our room came...

“302 only has one other room on the floor so it would be quieter than the second floor where you could be kept awake if you had noisy neighbours. The room does smell of smoke however.”
