Not clean, not friendly and poor food sums it up. prices vary depending on how it is booked. Would not recommend and would not stay there again for any price

location is great, near the city center.
room are big but seems like no investment has been made since 20 years.
Internet connection is very slow for an outrageous price.
For the price asked you can find for sure a better quality.

My mom and I stayed at this hotel 3 nights, it is perfectly located. We couldn't have chosen better. Someone complained that the interior is old and absolutely not refurbished. Fine, it is like a 70s hotel room, however clean and spacious. We had a one bedroom suite and it had a bedroom and a living room with a kitchen. The staff was very helpful and willing to answer all questions. We would stay there again !

We booked a "Royal Suite" which was basically a room with a kitchenette and a small living area. Accommodations were adequate but not luxurious by any means. The location is great - very close to Ben Yehuda shopping street, a 20 minute walk to the Old City and access to buses on the main street. Breakfast was a disappointment after having had much better in other hotels in other cities. Staff members were very helpful wihth questions and booking tours, taxis, etc. Ask for Rasha or Alexandra who were always smiling and cooperative no matter what the request. Laundry is also available for long stays.

This hotel is located in the Center of Jerusalem and within walking distance to everything. We booked at this hotel as it provided a suite for our family. 2 adults and 2 kids. We had a two bedroom suite, with a kitchen. This would be considered a value hotel. It is not perfect and is somewhat dated. However, if you are prepared and do not spend much time in the room it is a great value. The price paid for the suite was very reasonable and we were very happy. It would be a 3 star hotel by North American Standards so do not have unrealistic expectations. The front desk was very helpful and provided us with anything we needed. The breakfast was plentiful but we did not eat many of the items, although we made due. The rooms can get a little noisy at night from the street, cars love to honk all night. We were very satisfied and felt we got good value.

I previously stayed in this hotel in 1995. Since then, the hotel has deteriorated significantly. I booked what was called a "rennovated suite" - I don't know when it was rennovated but it is in need of major work. The carpets were stained, curtains torn, pigeon droppings on the window sills among other problems. The hotel is dirty - rooms, hallways and public areas. There was no mattress cover and the sheets did not fit the mattress well. It took three days of requests to get a larger bottom sheet! The breakfast was meager for typical Israeli hotel breakfasts. The people at the front desk were very pleasant and kept saying they wanted to make me happy when requests were made (i.e. larger sheet, clean the footprints on the tile that were there when we got the room) but there was virtually no follow-through.

On a positive note - the hotel is in a good location in the center of Jerusalem and within an easy walk of the Old City.

This hotel was recommended by Frommer and this site for families with kids. We agree. We had a "suite" that was actually a large two bedroom apartment with small kitchen. Location at the top of Ben Yehuda and a few blocks from the Shuk was very convenient for us. Staff was helpful, breakfast was not the best Israeli breakfast of our trip but was fine. Two computers are available in the lobby for 6 nis/ 1/2 hour. I did not see any review mention that this hotel is essentially a time share for Orthodox families who come in on weekends so they can attend services and pray at the Kotel. It is a fine place to stay if you plan on some hard-core exploring on foot and would like some room to spread out at night.
