I leave for Israel in 1 week, and will be staying at the Novotel Jerusalem (now apparently renamed the Moriah Classic?) with a tour group. We will be here the better part of 3 weeks, and we have a fair bit of free time.
I know it's a long shot, but if anyone is familiar with the area, can you please tell me what's there? Ie. restaurants, shopping, supermarket (most of my "souvenirs" will be Israeli foods!) etc.
Also, on emap it looks like St. George Street is near the central Bus Station, is it really as close as it seems? I assume bussing to the bars on Ben Yehuda/ Jabotinsky probably isn't a good idea anyways. Any idea what the taxi fare would be like? (though I guess I'll figure it out for myself!).
