I chose this hotel because of the good value room rates for a establishment so close to the old city. The hotel is very close to the Damascus Gate of the old city, although not so easy for quite a few cab drivers to locate - as it is in the Arab side of Jerusalem, or East Jerusalem. My room was excellent as it was evidently brand new (second floor - Room 263), with air conditioning, flat screen tv, double queen bed, balcony and views to the old city wall. I note that many of the rooms at the hotel look down onto a bu interchange or a busy street - so quietness may be a problem for some travelers. The roof garden was fantastic, you needed to fetch your own drinks from the lobby bar however, but this didn't detract from the enjoyment of sitting on the roof and taking in the sights, sounds and smells of the old city. There was no wireless internet, which seems to be a standard these days, the room didn't have a refrigerator - which would have been useful in the July heat. The room needed a guide or hotel diectory aswell, they don't seem to have anything like that available. The bathroom was good, although water service seemed to fluctuate in intensity and heat. The staff were very courteous and helpfull and I would recommend a stay here.
