Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed November 3, 2007

Just returned from a magnificent trip to Israel, having spent our last 2 days in Jerusalem at the Prima Kings.

I totally disagree with posts from earlier this year...perhaps these were before the renovations were complete. My room was on the 4th floor and others in our group stayed in rooms on other floors and no one had a single complaint. My room was absolutely clean, beautiful, modern and well-maintained. Yes, it was on the smaller side, more like a boutique hotel, however, Israel is more European than American so smaller rooms and smaller elevators are much more common than what we are more familiar with in the United States. There was a small balcony which looked out over the street, unfortunately not in the direction of the Old City, but nonetheless, a nice place to sit, reflect and relax.

My only complaints about the room are the lack of a clock radio (none of the hotels we stayed in provided one) and the lack of a shower curtain liner so the water leaked onto the floor - but many hotels in the US don't use liners either so that is not just a problem at this hotel.

Every room had a safe and a refrigerator and ample shelving and drawer space.

I found the hotel employees to be helpful, courteous and all spoke English. The people in the dining room were extremely nice and accommodating for our group. The food on the buffet was varied and excellent. There was never a shortage and it was constantly being replenished during every meal. There is a nice selection so guests who don't want Israeli food will always be able to find more traditional foods (i.e. cereals for breakfast which isn't traditionally part of Israeli breakfasts, traditional American favorites such as roast chicken for dinner).

We were there during the Jewish Sabbath and the majority of guests were observing the Shabbat and the hotel beautifully accommodated; however, we saw many people in the hotel throughout the Sabbath who were obviously not observing the Jewish Sabbath and comfortably continued with their touring, etc. As in most of Jerusalem on the Sabbath, stores are closed so in the hotel, the gift shop was closed...but this is in the Jewish part of Jerusalem where most everything is closed to observe the Sabbath. If you are not observing the Sabbath, you may be better off staying in Tel Aviv or in another town on the coast that is not as observant as Jerusalem.

The location is excellent...a convenient walk to the Old City or to the main downtown area.

Overall, everyone in our group really enjoyed our stay...excellent location, beautiful rooms and plenty of comfortable seating in the lobby and good food. Would definitely stay here again.

I stayed at the Prima Kinks for 11 nights. I was offered a good deal and I had, therefore, low expectations. This hotel, however, proved to be in every way a most superb choice. The room and the dining room were immaculatly clean, the sheets being changed every day. The elevator was reasonably fast and the entire staff, from the receptionist to the porter and waiter were very cordial and friendly. The AC the the provided small refrigerator worked very well and best off all, the breakfast was varied, plentiful and fresh. The location in cental Jerusalem is unbeatable. Yes, the place was packed but my room in the 6th floor was definitely quiet. The cons were lack of a parking lot, a small room and a slippery bathtub. I would most definetely come back to this hotel.

I stayed here for four nights during July 2007. From the outside, the hotel looks modern and up to date. The interior tells another story. Only floors five and six are renovated. Floors 1- 4 are in the process of being renovated and are in dire need of a makeover. Many teen tour groups use this hotel and house the teens on floors 1 - 4. These floors can be quite noisy and "dorm" like. I stayed on the fifth floor which was semi renovated. The air conditioner in the room was excellent and cooled the room off instantly. The room was decorated nicely, but it was a bit cramped. The hotel offered only one iron for all guests located in the hallway on the first floor. This was odd and inconvenient. The Prima Kings really needs to invest in irons and ironing boards for all rooms. The buffet breakfast was okay at best. The food was a bit soggy and some of the pastries were stale. The best thing about the hotel was the location. An excellent supermarket was located down the street. The Prima Kings is within walking distance to the Old City and the Jaffa Gate. It is also located about ten minutes from Ben Yehuda Street and many shops and restaurants. I would recommend the hotel if you are looking for convenient accomodations within walking distance to major attractions in Jerusalem.

I stayed for a week at the Prima Kings Hotel in Jerusalem.
Service is kind. I stayed in a normal Room that was absolutely perfect not to small and not very large. The room was well kept and comfortable. The Dinning room is indeed a little to small but that's was the only discomfort i had. Plus with a wireless computer you may surf the internet freely, that was great for me, because i had a lot of business to do. The Location is absolute superb in the middle of everything.

To all who are planning a trip to Jerusalem,

My wife and I recently stayed at the Prima Kings Hotel in Jerusalem. I wish I had an elegant vocabulary so that I could have properly described the unforgettable experience we had in this magnificent hotel. Everything from the location to our bed sheets was great. The service was very quick and it is quite obvious that when you are there you feel that the hotel staff is there to serve you no matter what your request may be or how outlandish it may be. My wife and I will certainly go back to the Prima Kings Hotel next time we are in Jerusalem.Just like their logo says; Prima Hotels really does give you "Unique experiences"

You need to know from the start that this is a European-style hotel, which means that the rooms are VERY small! I was a tour leader, so they put me on one of the renovated floors and my room was actually quite nice (though still small). The rest of my group was on the first floor, and the rooms really were sub-standard for this kind of hotel. They were small and old and several people had problems with leaky showers, etc. The elevators were SO slow...several times we walked up the six floors to avoid them. The dining room was VERY crowded and the food was just OK. There are lots of BIG tour groups coming and going. This can make or break the dining/lobby experience. Several times we couldn't even get through the lobby there were so many people. The staff was not helpful in the least! They barely spoke English and didn't know anything about Jerusalem sites. I might stay here again if the price was right, but I would request a room on one of the renovated floors. There is a substantial difference in these rooms and the older ones.
