We were aprehensive about the reviews of odour and cleanliness and rude staff.... but to our surprise we LOVED this hotel.
Those who have given bad reviews have unrealistic & "lofty" expectations to be sure! The hotel has been under renovation and we were very pleased with our large,CLEAN room. ( Yes, if you study deep in some of the corners of the room you might notice that the wall paper here and there is lifting, but this appears to be under renovation - virtually unnoticeable)
The staff were friendly. The food was VERY good and the wait staff seemed proud to have us try all their fine culanary dishes - which were fabulous. The piano player in the lobby was so sweet and the kitchen and wait staff went out of their way to chat with us while we waited for our transportation to Tel Aviv. They wished us a speedy return.
The location is ideal; next to parks and cafes and only 15 - 20 minutes walk from places like Ben Yehuda and Mehana Yehuda market, and the Old City Jaffa Gate. You'r right in the middle of it all.
I have been to Israel 5 times, and my heart is in the Mt Zion hotel, but my wallet has found a new home at the King Solomon. A comparable hotel at a friendlier price!
