Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 29, 2012

The hotel is within walking distance from most of the holy sites in Jerusalem. The rooms are modern, CLEAN, with great amenities: free WIFI. The staff were extremely professional and courteous. We had dinner at the roof-top restaurant, awesome food selection, large portions and beautiful presentation. The service was impeccable. Beautiful views of Jerusalem throughout the restaurant. The hotel offers free buffet breakfast that was extremely generous and caters to all tastes. We loved our stay at the the Legacy and we will be staying there again.

We stayed here for four nights, the staff was very nice and helpfull. The rooms are big with a lot of space and the bathroom is big, we only had a little problem with the shower but it was fix quickly.
Both breakfast and dinner in the restaurant that is in the 5th floor are really good. I really recomend having dinner (wich is after 8pm), the view is beautiful and the food is amazing.
Even thou its in the arabic part, we did not have any problems or felt as if they where trying to get any ideas across.

On my second visit to Jerusalem I wanted to go more upmarket. The reviews and recommendations pointed to The Legacy. Yes, it is 10-minute walk to the Damascus Gate, yes the breakfast offers a spread (though the salmon had seen better days), yes the restaurant has a good reputation. But the rooms are postage-stamp (ex-YMCA) and desperately in need of regular maintenance - my air-conditioner took on a life of its own, the handle to the cupboard came off every time I used it, the bath was unusable because the plug never worked, and the lobby decor is in the height of bad taste. The staff would rather be somewhere else, and though occasionally helpful, take no pride in their work. I stayed 6 nights and was happy to leave.

I highly recommend this hotel as its very friendly with outstanding service. Close to the old city with great breakfasts and Al la Carte Dinner. The rooms are clean and the price is good and value for money. The lobby has lots of seating and a good coffee shop. we stayed 5 nights

Stayed at the Legacy for 2 nights. The location is very convenient as it is five minutes away from the Old City. You are welcomed by a friendly and efficent staff, the rooms are very nice and clean with lovely sheets and beautiful towels and the included breakfast is lavish. I would certainly return to this hotel and I can definitely recommend it to everyone being confident that they will apreciate too.

The Legacy Hotel, located in East Jerusalem, is a nice place to stay when visiting Jerusalem. The rooms were a little bit small, but very clean, friendly front desk, with a wonderful huge breakfast. The hotel is located about two blocks from Damascus Gate is accessible to many attractions.
