question about lev yerushalayim

I know it's not a fancy hotel, we don't need fancy & like the location, but I've heard stories about them not providing soap/shampoo, and possibly charging you to use the dishes they 'provide'. Does anybody know what the story is with soap/shampoo/ and dishes? Thanks!

I don't remember about the soap and shampoo but I do remember the roaches. Leave a light on at night.

I have never heard of a hotel charging customers for dishes that are used when meals are served.

Here are some TripAdvisor reviews of the place:


(from the "Jerusalem Hotels" section on the left sidebar of this screen).

I see in one of the reviews from May 30, 2008 something about the hotel charging $35 for dishes that the customers wanted to keep for personal use during their stay. I don't know what this is all about -- maybe since they can't guarantee that you'll keep them kosher, they throw them out afterwards (can't kasher ceramic dishes), so they charge you for this. Buy disposable dishes, or bring some Corelle if you plan on needing them.

I've been there in December 2008. We took a "renovated" suite - it was pretty basic, but adequate. Mostly reminded me of the US "business trips" hotels - the lower end. There certainly was some soap/shampoo in on-the wall dispensers.

No dishes, but they can be rented from the hotel. We brought our own.

Indigo--Dishes are NOT for meals served. They are for use in the kitchenette provided in each suite!

If you do end up needing to buy dishes, check out the "two shekel" stores on Jaffa Rd (turn left at the intersection with King George St and you should find a couple within a block or so). You can usually pick up assorted basics very cheaply there (can be combined with a trip to Mahane Yehuda market to buy fabulous veg, fruit, bread etc).
