“Great location with friendly, helpful staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 24, 2014

This is a fantastic location for visiting the Old City and downtown shopping and eating areas. The staff are extremely helpful and friendly. A hot reakfast is cooked freshly with a good range of food for all tastes. The rooms are fairly basic but of a reasonable size even with 3 comfortable beds. Take your own toiletries if you want any more than absolute basic. The bathrooms do need a bit of a makeover but for value for money and friendliness you'd be hard pushed to find an equal in this area.

The shabbat meals and breakfasts were excellent, and we appreciated having the shabbat elevator, with senior members in our family. Front desk staff was friendly and very helpful. The location is great. 10" from Mamilla/Jaffa gate. Negatives are the recently renovated rooms seem to have cut some corners. I hung my toiletry bag on a hook in the bathroom and it immediately fell down, being a stick-on hook! The bedding was very light and thin, not enough for late winter cold nights--extra blankets that were brought looked like very old bedspreads and were not so clean. Generally, cleanliness could be better--floors, etc. Bathrooms need updated tile and better lighting. Very nice to have the refrigerator and teakettle, but be aware that if keycard is removed from power slot, fridge is OFF, so things will spoil. Once I spoke to housekeeper, she took care to leave card in so that my son's milk stayed fresh. We enjoyed that it was laid back and very quiet at night, also that tea and pastries were always available. Also great to have free wifi.

Great location. But, their rooms are very modest for their price. Refrigerator completely empty!
Bathroom without a soap bar, shampoo out of the question. 21 st century travelers don't take soap or shampoo, that's odd!
That's the kind of bad propaganda.

Every person we encountered at the Eldan Hotel greeted us with a smile and treated us as the most important person they had met. From the Kitchen Manager who prepared a special very early meal for us to take into the Old City to the front desk who were so pleasant and helpful to the very kind persons handling the rooms.

Would stay here again in a heartbeat! 10 minutes from Jaffa Gate and lots of restaurants within 10 minute walks as well as the pedestrian mall.

We slept at the hotel one night and had wonderful relaxing night.
The breakfast is very poor not as shown on the pictures.
The hotel located in the center and it was great that we could walk everywhere
