“It was so nice”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2013

i used a room below the roof, so we had a very nice view of the Jerusalem.
It was awesome watching a sunset.

And the breakfast was great. really great.

All of the service was good, atmosphere was also comfortable.
Nirr helped us enjoy the city and made our trip pleased.

If I have a chance to go Jerusalem, I wish to stay there again.

Thanks, Nirr.

Nir was a big part of our fantastic Jerusalem experience. We have Trip Advisor to thank for alerting us to this great find! The house is not fancy but just unique, comfortable, welcoming, and special. Our kids LOVED room 7's loft and we loved the space, new bed, and view from the balcony. The buffet was also nothing fancy but more than sufficient, and chatting with other guests as well as Nir and Akram was a big bonus. We got great advice and directions from Nir, including an amaxing Old City guide. Not in the center of town, but easy accessibility via light rail two blocks away. Nir sent us to a great falafel place a few blocks away our first night. Supermarket down the block too. I would only recommend the loft for kids as the ceiling is low. Highly recommended!

Room Tip: Room 7 for families

This is second time in a year that I stayed at House 57 in Jerusalem while visiting family. Once again Nir was a fabulous host, making our stay comfortable and convenient. The room was simple, clean and comfortable. Breakfast was great, allowing us to go the whole day without a bite to eat until dinner time. We were also often joined by Nir for some warm conversation. This visit we walked the short walk (5-minutes) to the Jerusalem Light Rail station, and after that, we were hooked on this very comfortable public transport ride into town, or most anywhere else in Jerusalem. House57 is now that much closer to all of Jerusalem! I hope to return to House57 in 2013.

We found House 57 initially because it is only a block from my son and his family, but we go back because of the outstanding hospitality and cozy rooms. House 57 has been our base in Jerusalem at least four times, and while we miss Dani and Ilona, Nir is an excellent host. We felt as though he were a friend putting us up more than a businessman running a hotel.
We appreciate all that Akram does to keep House 57 functioning well. A request for the kind of pillows we like was filled immediately. Anything we wanted was provided with a smile.
Now that the light rail is finished, House 57 is only minutes from downtown, the Old City, and beyond. Bus service is also readily available. Oh, and Akram also has a taxi license, so he can drive you when you don't want to take public transportation.
We recommend House 57 to everyone we know who is going to Jerusalem! If you are contemplating a trip, you couldn't do better.

I have just returned from Israel and House 57 once again. I wish I knew how many times I have stayed House 57 but they are to numerous to count at this point. House 57 is located at 57 Midbar Sinai Street Jerusalem. It is close to the train, bus stops, and taxies will come to your door to pick you up. The rooms are always clean, spacious, and comfortable. The breakfast is both nutritious and plentiful with fruits, eggs, pita, vegetables, jams, fish, and salads. What can I say, it's delicious. Nir, his family and staff, are beyond comparison. In my last review I spoke only about the house, Nir and Akram, and how wonder the home is so enough about that. This time, I decided to write about the wonderful people that I have met from all parts of the world at House 57. It is not only the accommidations that are wonderful, it's really the people that you are able to meet, eat breakfast with, socialize with, and go out on adventures with that really make this bed and breakfast special. Each time that I have visited House 57, I have met people, made friends, went on tours with and enjoyed the night life with on many many occassions. I have truely met and made friends with people from all the four corners of the planet. I can't wait until my next trip in March 2013 at which time I again will return to House 57.

Room Tip: The room at the top of the stairs from the breakfast area has a wonderful view of Jerusalem. I pref...

First of all, the owner was very kind. The rooms were clean and pleasant. The neighborhood was quite and near at the train station and a supermarket. The kitchen was fully equiped so you can make your own breakfasts and dinners. I really enjoy the view from the balcony. The rooms have a/c, microwave, bathroom and a small refrigerator.

Room Tip: Higher floors have a great view!

Last year we stayed at House 57 for 5 days; this year, we stayed for two weeks. We chose to return because of House 57's great location, friendly atmosphere, pleasant, quiet neighborhood, and gracious host. House 57 is within easy walking distance of a little neighborhood shopping center where we could shop for pastries, groceries, and much more, and where we could also have a pleasant meal at a sit-down restaurant. In minutes, we could walk to the light rail or bus, and the neighborhood was pleasant just for a stroll. Breakfast at House 57 afforded the opportunity to chat with guests from around the world; we shared and received ideas about what to see and how to get there; we made new friends and experienced a sense of fellowship with other guests. Nir, owner of House 57, was readily available, gracious, and helpful. He makes his guest feel valued and welcomed. When we returned to House 57 after a full day of site-seeing, we could linger on the porch or go directly to our room, which was comfortable and clean. We will definitely return to House 57 the next time we visit Israel.
