“Well run in all respects”
Reviewed December 22, 2013

Stayed at this hotel with a business associate. Enjoyed the experience in all respects. Room was smallish but clean with a very large balcony. I understand that the rooms in the other are of differing sizes so this was probably an upgrade with the balcony on the 8th floor!

The food was fresh and the service very friendly. They recently introduced free wifi in the lobby and bar areas which is helpful.

The night of my arrival for some reason the bar/restaurant kitchen closed early. I was disappointed but a few minutes later the waitress sought me out in the lobby, because they found an employee to reopen the kitchen for me. A generous portion was brought promptly, along with apologies.
I was very impressed by this service.

They also offer free parking to guests. Hope to be back again!

Was with perry stone your group. Very nice hotel. Close to train station. Nice lobby area. Free wifi in Lobby. Shops seemed to offer good deals and more trustworthy than on street where silver is not real silver even with 529 stamp.

This was my favorite hotel during my 10-day stay in Israel. We stayed three nights here and I loved it! They really know the meaning of good customer service. All the employees were very friendly and helpful. The food was awesome - also my favorite of all the hotels we stayed in during our visit to Israel. Our room was a little smaller than the other hotels we stayed in but the ambience made up for it. There is a great gift shop right outside the front entrance and also another great one on the main floor. I would definitely recommend this hotel for Americans visiting Israel.

This hotel has on each floor a room with all necessary fittings for wheelchair guests. I don not know any Jerusalem hotel with better facilities for the handicapped visitor.

The hotel has an oriental flair and is charming. The lobby and bar area is nicely decorated.

When fully booked the basement hall is used also as restaurant, but here the athmosphere is lacking.

Food selection and quality are very good

Great hotel, great location, good service, and a great spread for breakfast and dinner. The wifi in the lobby is free, but visitors are using it to stream movies on their iPads and so at night you can't even access it. It would be nice if it was provided free of charge in all rooms, so that travelers who would like to contact families via the internet could.

We stayed here in July 2013 for an overnight stop on a two day excursion from our cruise ship. The room was clean, spacious and modern. The food - served buffet style both at dinner and breakfast - was Kosher and offered a range of extremely tasty and interesting dishes. The bar was pleasant with a good ambience and some comfortable areas to sit and chat.
