My wife and i stayed there for one night.The atmosphere at this hotel is very special.
The hotel itself has 7 suites, each with it's own unique design.
The suite design is a great combination of antique look (old stones and arches) with all the modern comfort you can have. Our suite had a small balcony, with the hotel's inner garden in close proximity. One cannot really describe the feeling of sitting in the garden, looking at the stars, with some nice jazz music in the background... add to it that special atmosphere that Jerusalem has, and you have got a winner.
The staff of the hotel are very friendly and helpful, and since the hotel is small, you get a more personal feeling from the staff, than you would get from a bigger, more commercial hotel. As for food, this is another example of the personal touch that is what this hotel is all about.
At breakfest we sat at the chef's table (you have a big chef's table and some small standard tables), and he makes your food, just in front of you. You get a chance not only to see the food being prepared, but also a chance to talk to the chef who is very friendly. We didn't have dinner there, but i can tell you that sitting in the chef's table for a five course meal is definitely on our "to do" list for next time. The food itself at breakfest was very good.
The location itself (Ein Karem) is very nice, and there some good food options a walking distance from the hotel.
All in all, this is very unique and romantic hotel, recommended for couples.
