If you are fortunate enough to visit this unique city, then there are really only two hotels in this class worth considering. Overall, having stayed in both of these hotels, I would say that this is the better of the two.
The rooms are modern and luxurious, most complete with balconies (corner rooms have huge terraces) and the views of the old city of Jerusalem are unrivalled - simply stunning.
All the hotel amenities are as expected - nice (if a bit pricey) restaurant and a neat pool area (smart looking infinity pool) with pool side snack bar.
The location is perfect, with the gates to the old city about a ten minute walk away and a newly built shopping mall literally on the doorstep.
The downside is the service - not across the board as the waitresses who served us in the restaurant were always pleasant. The focus of my complaint is the reception staff! They had allocated us the wrong room and let's just say it took more than a few stern words to ensure that the matter was dealt with accordingly. In the end, I was given a free upgrade for the inconvenience but I can't help thinking that they would have happily have left me in the wrong room had I not caused such a scene!
For the price your pay (note: very expensive) and for this class of hotel you simply do not expect this level of service. It is a huge shame, as it certainly detracted from the overall experience.
Nonetheless, this is the one and only qualm I had.
