Not at all worth the money. That this place charges at least $200 per night is embarrassing to those (including me) who have stayed here. If you're going to compare it to an American hotel, it's about on par with a Days Inn, and I mean a low quality Days Inn.
The rooms are tiny, dirty and decorated like that of a low-end chain motel. As alluded to above, if you paid a low-end chain motel price like $50 to $90, that's okay. $200 is way beyond the proper price. Paper thin walls where you can hear the person next door breathe. Once you try to request any service from the hotel staff you will be met with rudeness and indifference at every step. If you request an iron be brought to the room, good luck in getting it by the time you check out. Some very basic things like delivering a message took 6 hours, despite my asking several hours earlier if any messages had arrived for me - they were annoyed by that inquiry and said I would've known by then if I had. When I complained, the same lady who claimed I had no messages earlier changed her story and said I got the message just when they received it. Are you kidding me? Breakfast is just a salad bar and some stale bread. The exorbitant wifi charge (or that they charge at all for wifi) is an insult.
Jerusalem has much better choices with better value than this dog. If you're here on business, your company is spending way too much money. Sure the location is good with about a 15 minute walk to the Old City (although no non-hotel restaurants in the area), but far better places for much less money in the same area include the Prima Palace, the Montefiore and the Notre Dame Center.
