“Excellent for visiting Old Jerusalem”
Reviewed June 5, 2012

Don't be put off by the very strange exterior! Once upstairs one is in a different world. The rooms were very comfortable and clean. The food was very good served as a buffet and there was plenty of everything. The staff were friendly and helpful. The roof garden gave excellent views of the city walls and also the hustle and bustle of the street outside. Access to the Old City was very easy. Although there were several groups of pilgrims staying there from many parts of the world, the staff coped extremely well.

Good stay here, excellent location . The room was spacious, clean and well equipped . The food was very good , a wide choice and above average service. Garden terrace has a great view but needs more comfortable seating . Reception staff polite and helpful , Champions League greatly enjoyed ! Would return one day .

We visited the Golden Walls as part of a package with Mc Cabe pilgrimages of the UK and found it to be very satisfactory. The staff were most helpful and the location excellent, very close to the Damascus Gate.Not 4 star by UK standards but most suitable for our needs. The buffet service for both breakfast and dinner provided a very wide variety dishes.

Room Tip: Rooms to the rear are quieter, but those at the front have more interesting outlook over the old cit...

Very good location not far from the markets and famous sites, all within walking distance, the food was good and the staff were polite and helpful, slight dated decor but this was the only fault.
Also tv in my room was not working, small quirk and I'm sure if I had mentioned this is it would have been resolved but you won't want to stay in and watch tv anyway!

I booked this hotel through United Travel in East Jerusalem because I wanted my group to experience both the east and west parts of the city. It was the perfect location and provided comfortable accommodation, wonderful meals helpful staff and easy access to all of the city. We had a great time walking the neighborhood streets and had easy access to the old city within a five minute walk. Garth

Room Tip: for quiet ask for a room on the back and on the front to watch the street life which closes down by...

Stayed here on a pilgrimage tour in March 2012. A family run hotel with loyal staff. Great location overlooking the city walls and an easy walk through Damascus Gate into Old City and 10 mins to Holy Sepulchre for example. No lift from street to Reception (1 flight of stairs). Rooms are average 3 star business hotel style. Not the most modern, but perfectly clean and decently sized. Safe in room was very useful. Breakfast is buffet style and a good choice. Dinners are also buffet style, good choice and regularly topped up. Waiters clean up regularly, sometimes a little too quickly, and were attentive to drinks requests.

Bar area is pleasant, but 4 pounds for a beer is too much !! Groups gathered here most evenings to talk about the day... very pleasant. There is also a roof terrace and bar area, but too cold to use when we were there.

Overall a good base and would stay again.

This hotel is ideally placed for exploring all parts of the Jerusalem - especially the Old City and East Jerusalem. I have stayed here three times now and have received a warm, courteous and friendly welcome each time. The staff are always ready to assist in any way they can.

It does feel a little rough and ready around the corners occasionally, but it is clean, generally quiet - and has views from the rooftop which are always interesting.

The food is always plentiful and well-prepared.

Room Tip: Rooms near the lift are better - especially if near the front of the hotel.
