We were lucky enough to attend a wedding at the hotel and decided to make a long weekend of it. The hotel staff are friendly and check in was certainly better than most of our experiences.
We had booked a room on the 10th floor with a view and were not disappointed. We would recomend this for anyone staying at the hotel.
The room is large, modern and comfortable. In truth, we could not have expected much better. The only negative (as with most hotel rooms) is that the hair dryer is puny and not up to the job for anyone other than a balding man.
The food in the hotel is acceptable, but by no means great. We also found that over four days, we battled for choice and the hotel could benefit from an addional restuarant or extended menu. We also noted that their premium drinks - such as whiskey were actually more of the run of the mill labels sold at premium prices. I would not plan to eat in the hotel for more than one night.
The hotel is great for its location which is a few minutes stroll from the old city, and also a few minutes from the main shopping areas in Jerusalem. The area around the hotel is clean and walking feels comfortable and safe.
The service is generally a bit slow and random. Once we accepted that this was part of the package, we enjoyed a fantasic weekend.
No doubt we would consider going back next time we are in Jerusalem.
