Leonardo Plaza Hotel Jerusalem
Ranked #26 of 100 Hotels in Jerusalem
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 19, 2013

Super location. Lowest priced, lowest rated five star hotel in center of West (Jewish) Jerusalem. short walk to bustling Ben Yehudah walking mall area. Even the recently re-done rooms seem out-dated. Poor upper management but earnest staff, especially at front desk & floor manager Gabby

Stayed at hotel during tour of Israel. Was about 15 minute walk to both old city and lots of restaurants. Stayed on top floor with balcony but not overlooking old city. Rooms were quiet and clean, nice beds and showers. Pool is pretty and deep so good to have a swim in. Staff are friendly and helpful.

One note is that we tried to check in on a Saturday at 3pm but were told no rooms would be available until 9 pm due to the Shabbat. This was fine in the end but would have been nice to know beforehand.

We spent five nights at the hotel. Of all the hotels we stayed in Israel this was the best. The rooms were good, food was great and plentiful. It was a good location and easy to walk to the Old City. Would highly recommend it.

We stayed in this hotel for five nights on our recent trip to Israel. This was our second stay at this hotel in three years.
The location is ideal. We parked our rented car in the somewhat awkward (by Canadian standards) parking garage.
Room is beautifully appointed. Very comfortable bed, plenty of drawer space. View overlooking the old and new parts of Jerusalem. Quiet.
Ice isn't available on every floor, we were fortunate that I only had to walk up one flight to get some.
The elevator system is neat: you key in the floor to which you wish to go, and a screen tells you which elevator will take you there. Once inside the elevator, you can't make any selections.
The food is plentiful and delicious.
We had Friday night Shabbat dinner here with family. Expensive, but terrific.
Nice bathroom, but here like in other hotels in Israel, the shower doesn't really have a full enclosure. The front desk people were helpful. We did take taxis frequently, and the concierge at the front door was helpful in that respect.
Internet isn't free.
This hotel is close to much of what one wants to go to in Jerusalem.

Room Tip: If using ice is an issue, ask for a room not too far from an ice-machine. The elevators provide ver...

I have just returned from leading a pilgrimage to Israel and wish to commend the Leonardo for providing us with a fantastic base. The food, bedrooms, bars and staff were excellent. The hotel is within a ten minute walking distance of the Old City. This is ideal for those who wish to go for a walk at night.

I travel often on business and have stayed in a number of hotels that are part of the big international chains and feel that the Leonardo chain in Israel can match any of them. I stayed in one of the hotel’s executive rooms which were comfortable and allowed me to work in a comfortable environment. The business lounge was the perfect venue for my meetings and I found the staff in general very friendly.
I received excellent value for my money and recommend the Leonardo Jerusalem Plaza to anyone traveling to Israel.
