A stylish old world style hotel - with gorgeous outdoor garden spaces located well away from the maddening crowds of Jerusalem. Lovely rooms - we stayed in the East Wing (annex) instead of the Main Building - and were charmed by the tall ceilings, free-wi-fin and spacious baths. Room decor itself was a bit old- fashioned (not necessarily a bad thing) - but furniture felt a bit too crafty). Front desk staff (and staff in general) were less than ebullient at our arrival - a bit of a turn off that frankly cost them a star in our opinion. Buffet breakfast was first rate - and a real value. We waited quite a bit of time to be served in the charming bar/winecellar - and they DID allow cigar smoking which is a real put off - but the wine/alcohol selection was excellent and the atmosphere was inviting (save the smoke). Pool wasn't open - but you could see how gorgeous it would be in season. The King David would still be our first pick in Jerusalem, but this is a nice, much less expensive (and quieter) alternative.
