“No better place to stay in Jerusalem”
Reviewed May 16, 2013

Located near everything (shopping, night life, eats, old city). The staff alone is worth the stay. Room has refrigerator, sink and microwave. No reason to stay at more expensive hotels. Almost everything is within walking distance.

Room Tip: Ask for a street view.

We had a little trouble finding the entrance, as it is now located at 17 King George St (moved from Hahistadrut 2).

We rented an apartment room overlooking King George St., and we were very pleased with this room. It was stocked with tableware and had a small refrigerator, which proved to be very convenient. We stayed during Shavuot, so when most restaurants and stores closed, we were able to buy and keep groceries. The shower was small and there was no bathtub, but otherwise this room was very comfortable.

The location can't be beat--close to Ben Yehuda St (1 min walk), Mamilla (8-10 mins walk), and Old City (12-15 mins walk). It is also close to Jaffa St, so you can easily jump on the tram.

All of the members of the staff are extremely friendly, knowledgeable about the area, and speak a variety of languages

Because the room overlooks the street, we did get some of the noise from down below, but given the multitude of other positives of this location, a bit of street noise should not deter you from staying at this great hotel.

Room Tip: If street noise really bothers you, ask for a room that does not overlook the street.

We had been to Jerusalem once before - staying in a hotel and taking various trips. This time we wanted to explore Jerusalem at our own pace. Taking an apartment for two weeks was a good choice - and the location of this apartment hotel was terrific. It was an easy walk to the Old City, very close the light rail (Jaffa Street) and there were numerous buses passing. We chose the spit level apartment to give us some additional space and this worked out well. Upstairs (on level 4) was the entrance, the kitchen/dining and lounge areas. The spiral staircase took you down to the bedroom and bathroom. Each level had its own balcony overlooking King George Street and its own wifi connection (all very easy to access). There is a supermarket (diagonally) across the road (go down the stairs to the City Cellar) where you can stock up on basics. You can also walk/take a bus/ catch the light train to the Mahane Yehuda market (an experience in itself) to buy olives, fruit, vegetables, cheese, nuts and much more. The bathroom in the apartment was smallish but big enough to be serviceable. There were two TVs (with stations in a range of languages - including English) and two air-conditioners (upstairs and downstairs). The kitchen had a good sized fridge, a microwave and stove top with two burners - all good for a two week stay. On the downside - there was a frying pan but no other saucepans and limited utensils. We were provided with a can opener on request - and we bought a couple of minor things (include food storage containers). It seemed like a problem at first but we actually managed just fine. The lack of clothes washing facilities was a bit of a surprise though. The apartment was serviced daily which we appreciated.
One big plus was the staff on reception - particularly Ben and Elia. We received a level of advice and practical support that was really helpful (and better than you would get in most hotels). Ben organised tickets for us to go and see 'Oh Jerusalem' which we had seen and enjoyed. We did too! Sua, who serviced the apartment, was also very helpful.
We really enjoyed our stay in Jerusalem and have this apartment as a base greatly contributed to that.

Room Tip: The two level apartment is certainly different - especially as the living area (upstairs/ is connect...

I highly recomend this fantastic hotel. The location is a short and nice walk ( 10 - 15 minutes) to Old Jerusalem, and in the middle of shopping/resaurant district.
The staff is more than helpful. THey really help you with almost evrything you need. The room was nice and clean, and if we sometime wanted an extra towel or equipment to the kitchenett, it was never a problem :-)

As in the hole City Center of Jerusalem you must expect and accept a lot of noice from outside area. Such as heavy trafic, resaurant/night life on the streets.

Room Tip: We stayed at a room Studio de Luxe with balcony - We really liked it

I reserved online and all email communications were prompt and clear. It is very conveniently located with several restaurants and shops right outside our door on Ben Yehuda pedestrian walkway. It is an easy 15 minute walk to the Jaffa or New gate and 10 minutes to the Mahane Yehuda Market.
Check in was fast and efficient and the receptionist was very helpful with providing information and assisting us with our needs, however there is no receptionist between 11 pm and 8 am. This is not really a hotel with amenities like room service or health club and restaurant. It is more like a self service apartment.
We stayed for 5 nights in room 31 which has a kitchenette with fridge, microwave oven, and electric kettle which really came in handy. However there is no dishwasher so everything is washed by hand but no dish towels were provided so we just asked for and extra bath towel. Housekeeping is limited to making the beds and changing the towels daily and garbage removal. However no other cleaning is provided like sweeping the floors or cleaning the bathrooms or washing dishes or changing bed sheets. The room is a little tight for a family of 4 but certainly acceptable for 2 people.
The quality of sleep is good but some mild street noise can be heard. The free WiFi is strong and reliable and the in room safe is useful.
If you are OK with being self served and not waited on hand and foot, then the City Center Hotel represents great value and a good choice.

Its location is not obvious, however on the busy street you will find this gem, These apartments provide everything you could want while you are exploring Jerusalem, with the Jaffa Gatebeing around a 15 minute walk. There were lots of resturants in the area, and you are less than 5 minutes walk from the Yehuda Market, which is worth a wander through.
The apartments very really clean, spacious. The staff here were extremely helpful recommending where to find resturants on the Sabaath and travel directions to attractions out with the city.
