The hotel offered a generally clean room for a great price in a good location. Don't stay here if you are looking for a lot amenities, large bathrooms, are travelling with a lot of luggage or are a light sleeper.
There are a couple sets of stairs to climb, although the staff is more than willing to help out. Noise tends to echo in the hallway so you can hear doors opening and closing from your room. Parking is street parking and was ample on Sirkin St during the afternoon onwards, one block North (the lower street in elevation). Again the staff will go with you to show you where it is. Plan on arriving then if you want to park, as the non meter spots fill up during the morning and start to clear by afternoon. As others have mentioned, the area where you park looks shady, more so because its quiet and dark. We didn't experience any problems.
There was a flat screen tv provided with tons of satellite channels if you have the time to sort through all of it. The location of the property is about a 25 min walk to the German colony and a 5-10 min walk to the train station that goes up Mt Carmel.
The rooftop has a nice view and worth enjoying when you have some downtime.
