We had a group of about 50 people stay at the hotel and we had about 20 rooms booked. Multiple people had their cash stolen, one girls had her iPhone stolen, and multiple people had thousands of dollars of charges from stolen credit card numbers.
Their service was atrocious in terms of attitude at the front desk by several people. Front desk lady yelled at me for giving her change in coins to pay for a phone call and told me my coins are worthless. After which she cursed under her breath in Arabic and then accepted my money.
The breakfast is great though! Lots of food, most of it very fresh. Freshly prepared espresso too.
However, I would not stay here again and would not recommend it.

Located in East Jerusalem (right across the formal road/border), it is one of the couple hotels stay side by side near the American consulate (actually the consulate services are provided in different location). The walk to the old city is 15 min, it is OK. The walk to the city center is through the religious quarter, so pay attention to your dress and contacts.
The equipment in hotel is working properly, but many things are worn out, and the smell of the deodorant in the corridors is depressing.
Rooms are OK.
The pool is not open Sut, out of the building.
Breakfast is not bad, but no meat, and served in the basement without windows, while the nice restaurant area near the lobby is used for restaurant only.
I could tolerate when I was called "old gentleman" being in my 60, but I was shocked that they billed the card of my son-in law again after deposited full cost ahead on my card for the same rooms. I wrote to the management instantly, and now for a whole week have no reply from them.

Room Tip: There is no real difference, but at the 8th floor the have balconies

Fantastic location, but it's not the only hotel along that strip.

Lobby is massive, but lacks warmth of activities.
Lifts are regretably bad, noisy and slow.

Restaurant at the basement is quite good. Staff are friendly and efficient.

More could be done at this place, especially a facelift for the rooms.

Just spent six nights here and the facilities and service cannot be bettered. Despite the huge turnover of visitors we were never rushed and felt welcomed as individuals. It felt a safe haven in a city which is cometimes not know for being safe.

Good location, impressive lobby / reception area. Buffet breakfast and dinner offered a good selection of food with just the usual quibbles - why can't they keep food piping hot... why can't they ensure all the plates are spotlessly clean... why can't they bin the chipped crockery?
Don't expect 4 or 5 star service and then you won't be disappointed. This is a 3 star hotel - no more. And it's fine.

I stayed two nights in this hotel chosen because of the location, close to the old city. The room was comfortable and clean with a few amenities, although the mini-bar was empty for some reason.
Service was efficient and well organized but I don't like this kind of large, standardized hotels. Another negative point is that Wi-Fi is not free and quite expensive, something not easy to understand in a place that, after all, is at risk from terrorism.

Room Tip: Book with a breakfast.
