I just got back from Israel, spending my first 4 nights at the Little House in Bakah and really loved my stay there.
Ok, so if you're looking for a 4-star hotel this is definitely not it. That said, let me tell you what I loved about the place.
The room was spacious and clean. The bathroom was updated and spotless. The bed was very comfortable. The room had a powerful AC unit which is important in Israel. There was even a nice flat panel TV in the room.
While they didn't have free internet, there were several cafes in walking distance that did. Speaking of which, Little House is in a residential area so there were some terrific cafes, restaurants and a wonderful bakery all within walking distance.
While you can find some of this stuff at other hotels in Jerusalem, what I really liked about the Little House is that it felt like home. This was my first trip to Israel and the Little House was my first destination.
The staff there went out of their way to provide me with helpful options for dining, shopping, finding my way around, etc. They were friendly, chatty and more than just courteous. They were genuinely concerned with my needs and did their best to see to them.
The best example of this was their help in finding me a hotel in Tel Aviv. I decided to leave Jerusalem a day early and needed a last-minute one-night hotel room in Tel Aviv. The woman at the desk spent 45 minutes on the phone and internet to find me a room. They had nothing to gain by doing this and, in fact, by her helping me, they were losing a paying customer one day early.
I don't know what all the other people are griping about in the other reviews but my experience at this hotel was nothing short of excellent.
If you want something cozy, homey, and want to feel like you're living IN Jerusalem and not just stationed at some generic hotel, then I strongly urge you to stay at A Little House in Bakah.
