A very short stroll from this hotel takes you to the Damascus Gate and access to the old walled town of Jerusalem with plenty to explore for pilgrim and tourist alike.
Our room was very clean, very comfortable, albeit basic, but since we were out all day every day that was all we needed. It looked out to a mosque at the back, which meant it was very quiet except for when the faithful were being called to prayer! We learnt that rooms on the front of the hotel could be very noisy at night. The lounge area with bar was extremely comfortable and relaxed, looking over the busy road to the old town walls and Damascus Gate, dramatic at night when floodlit.
The food was amazing - in terms of quality, quantity and variety - no one need go hungry. The buffet spreads cater for all tastes and are vegetarian friendly!
This is a hotel frequented by coach loads of pilgrims (as were we) so single travellers may not like it so much.
