“Great location for one night in Jerusalem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2012

After researching many locations for a one night stay in Jerusalem I settled on the City Center Hotel because of its location and price ... I was NOT disappointed! I arrived in the evening around 8PM. The location near Ben Yehuda was perfect for an evening stroll with many restaurant options close by. It was close enough to even venture a walk to the Old City as well ... less than 15 minutes.

Ben and Ilia were great hosts and helped with tips on tours, arranging transportation, timing, and more ... I really appreciated their friendly service!

The rooms have been recently remodeled and were very clean and comfortable ... nothing fancy, but perfect for the price. The jacuzzi bath was a bonus!

The folks at City Center helped make this (my first trip to Jerusalem) a very pleasant visit ... If and when I return, they will be my first call.

Room Tip: Don't forget to hit the switch for hot water 15 min. before you take a shower.

Based on many visits in the holy city, City Center Jerusalem is one of the best small hotel in Jerusalem. Clean, good location, helpful staff...

15 min from bus station with lightrail (tram), 15 min from Old City... next to Ben Yahuda main streets full with restaurants, shops...

City Center Jerusalem is located in the perfect place. Half a block from Ben Yehuda Market where you can find many fine restaurants at affordable prices, pizza, ice cream parlors, supermarkets, pharmacy, many souvenir shops and several no commission currency exchange. The Tram (street car) and bus stop is around the corner. This hotel is within 12 minutes walking distance from the Old City, and 10 minutes walking to Mahane Yehuda Market. The staff are very nice and willing to assist with any information about the city. The apartments are immaculatelly clean and very comfortable. My wife and I stayed here for 10 days and we are very happy and satisfied to the point that we will definitely stay at City Center next year. Anyone who is looking for an excellent apartment hotel, this is the place.

Perfect location!

Clean rooms but maybe slightly small. We were three adults sharing a duplex suite which would have been too small if we'd stayed for a longer period but it was okay now since we only spent two nights in Jerusalem.

The service was excellent! Ilia at the reception was probably the most helpful hotel staff I have ever met.

I will definitely stay there again next time I am in Jerusalem.

The location on King George was just perfect, and from the first minute, the staff were incredibly sweet and helpful. We even got to chat with the manager, Nate who was so charming and helped us change our car reservation too. The room was clean and spacious, the bathroom was the same and had nice modern fixtures. All four nights we were in Jerusalem, we noted that we were so pleased with our choice of City Center and its location. (Just a 2 minute walk to the tram, and we walked to the Old City and back three different times.)

We may be unusual in that we actually did some cooking in the little kitchen. Our only complaint was that there were no utensils besides basic flatware. Perhaps they could get some to have for those who request cooking utensils. (There was a large pan and pot in the kitchen) Our room was a secured safety room, so the wifi worked best in the inner part of the room, though it still was generally quite good even in the bedroom.

I My wife and I stayed at City Center hotel for one night in August and had a great time. The location is fantastic as it is on the walking St and close to cafe's shops and the train line. It is 15 minutes walk to the old city and has a good all day parking clue by. The rooms were modern, clean and comfortable and the staff at the reception were friendly and helpful. The price was very reasonable and definitely was a good value for money. It was a perfect night away and I would definitely recommend it to anyone coming to Jerusalem for a short break.

Room Tip: A room with a view to King George St would be good as we had a nice veranda looking over the street.

The apartment was big and everything was new. The location is great - easy walking distance to the old city. The staff is very friendly. Although it is very central, it's not been loud at night. There are many cares and restaurants nearby, so it was easy to find a place for breakfast
