“Disappointment”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2013

The "Poet" room is small and uncomfortable; there are no closets for hanging clothes. Cleanliness is not enough, the floor is stained, the electrical switches are dirty, and the air conditioner remote is dirty as well. The curtains bottom, when closed, is spread on the bed.

The shower is small and badly maintained; there are rust stains on the floor. There is no sufficient light and space for makeup and toiletries.
Room does not worth the cost, there is room to improve maintenance and cleanliness; and the management level of the hotel itself. Disappointment!

Room Tip: do not take the "poet" room

A romantic hideaway we found in this 5 star boutique hotel in Ein Kerem, Jerusalem. Difficult to find without your gps but worth the search. Accommodating and welcoming staff upon arrival and throughout our stay, celebrating our 45th anniversary. Spacious, luxurious room with every amenity including a nespresso machine in room. Chef's table experience was most delightful and delicious for dinner with Jonathan, a rising star in the culinary world. Breakfast no less wonderful. Peaceful escape from travels in Jersualem and Tel Aviv.

Live in a wonderful home-type setting with all the service you won't get at home. We stayed a week and enjoyed their hospitality. The room we stayed in was very comfortable and spacious.
The personal attention is low key and not obtrusive. A great place for lovers to visit Jerusalem and relax together. Nice garden to sit in and great views from the terrace.

Wonderful location. The old Arabic style stone house with the top modern facilities are an irresistible combination. The orchard is very nicely designed with the little waterfalls, filled with the sound of chirping birds and water. The view from the roof is breathtaking. And the food is delicious as well.

THis is a small boutique hotel located in the small place, Ein-Carem in Jerusalem, Israel . It has only seven rooms, each more beautiful and causi than the other. The stuff thought of everything that could make your staying there more enjoyable. Besides the rooms, the Chef's hotel will make your stay very tasety! THe outdoor is very pleasant for relaxation outside. The price is a bit high but the overall experience ig great!!

Me and my wife spent 1 night at Allegra,last week.
The hotel is located at the old ein Kareem and it׳s a renovated old house, renovated with nice garden and designed rooms. The room is clean, well designed ,bad is great the bathroom as well. Very good soaps also in the room a good coffe machin and small box of nice choclates,The staff is very welcoming and available for every need or request. the atmosphere is very good .
The breakfast is good, yet not with many options if you are not in to agg ( in any way you can think of) this is a bitt disappointing if to compare other hotels at that level, or if considering the cost.
It's seems like they put lots of effort in in the kitchen and inside the dish but less effort into the food itself.
The hotel restaurant is closed at saturday so we didn't eat their other than breakfast. All together the place is nice,too expensive (as always in israel) but a good option for one night escape
