“Dated but clean”
Reviewed July 6, 2011

We decided to stay at the Rivoli because the price was so much more reasonable than most other hotels we could find in Jerusalem, or Israel more generally.
Although the room looked like it hadn't been refurbished since the 1960s it was clean and the staff were very helpful. There was no air conditioning, just a fan, but the internet connection (wifi) was excellent.
The breakfast was okay if you're happy to have have pita bread and salad for breakfast.
The location is okay but there's not many dining options in the area.

This hotel is a 10 minute walk from Damascus Gate in the Moslem Quarter. The food was good and the place was clean. We and a few others had a bit of a problem with the electricity supply in our room but they did us somewhere to dry our hair. Overall the hotel staff were friendly and carried out luggage without hesitation. We weren't in the rooms during the day and so didn't matter about the basic rooms. There is a mini market across the street which is far better to buy drinks and water for your trip. The water is safe to drink in Israel so can just re-fill them with tap water. One thing though is that the drinks at meals are not includes so take money with you to pay for them (as at April 2011 a soft drink was 5 NIS and a coffee was 10 NIS.

I stayed here one night, and didn't like the place much. After checkin I was told no card payment was accepted and had to walk 300m up the road to an ATM. Then I was told my room would be ready in 15mins. I went for breakfast at 10am to be told it had finished. On the plus side the locations is pretty good (close to damascus gate of old city), the rooms while drab were ok. The wifi internet didn't seem to be working well, so I had to use static IP on my laptop to get it to work.
