“Lovely Hotel - One night stopover”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2014

Our hotel was included in a tour price so we didn't have the option of staying elsewhere but we were not disappointed. Rooms were spotlessly clean and comfortable (as were the public areas), shower worked well with some lovely toiletries provided. The evening meal and breakfast had many options and was beautifully cooked and hot even though buffet style. Staff were friendly and helpful. We paid for drinks in euros but sterling, american dollars and local currency were also acceptable, even took loose change. Location was very good just outside the walls of the old city - overall very impressed and would stay there again if in Jerusalem.
Do have a look at the Olive Tree Weather Forecast plaque near the left of the front door outside - very amusing!

As a Holy Land Traveler we stayed there for 3 nights in 3/14. A well used large hotel that has been a standby many years for travelers. It is very safe and comfortable. Slow free WiFi connections in lobby, some had more luck. Three dining rooms needed for their many travelers. Food was good, tasty & served buffet style. Our last AM we arose to a 3:15 AM bus to Tel Aviv; hotel served us served coffee, juice & rolls before boarding our bus !Their wake up calls were greatly needed! Beds comfy. Bathrooms older & shower enclosure was minimal & leaked. We were fairly near elevators but room was quiet. Accessible to bus/rail system for 5 minute ride to Old City. However, all signage is in Hebrew; no English! Credit card must be used to get bus ticket. A local Israeli spoke English & helped me get right bus & got ticket machine on bus to validate my ticket. This was tricky. Money in Israel is Shekel & about 3 for a little more than a dollar. Shopkeepers and vendors take American dollars but change is in Shekels; A fascinating country and city to visit.

Room Tip: I was with a friend & we had comfortable twin beds with view to hotel front. We were part of a t...

Room was fine and lobby/lounge area was nice. Disappointed that free wifi was not in the rooms as the EO info said free wifi in hotels. Also we had some very warm days and the air was not turned on. This was in late Feb early March, 2014. Enjoyed food and dining room the first three days but we were then moved to basement and had fewer selections and no ambiance. Room safe was nice. Nice gift shops. Staff nice and helpful. Enjoyed treats on arrival.

The Olive Tree was the nicest place we stayed in Israel and Jordan. It is conveniently located to Old Jerusalem with helpful staff. There are nice shops in the hotel and a very nice/large lounge. A half hour walk from the Damascus Gate of Old Jerusalem and in the midst of several other hotels.

Room Tip: A large hotel with lot of activity.

The Olive Tree rooms are small but very well appointed. The room was attractively furnished and the king bed was very comfortable. There wasn't an abundance of space, but having two chairs was very convenient. The refrigerator and room safe were also super convenient. The buffet breakfasts and dinners were much better quality than our first hotel in Israel. The negatives were a very tiny bathroom, no free internet in the rooms, and no outdoor seating at the hotel.

stayed at the olive tree for 6 days. great accomodation and food.
the higher floor you live on the better to get a view of the city.
the food is great but occasionally gets boring as menus may be repeated too often. had one night great americal meal menu which was welcome change and delicious.

Room Tip: very close to city centre and shopping district

We enjoyed our 6 night stay here. The only downside was you could only get WiFi in the lobby. Our room was comfortable, clean and large with a small terrace that looked out on the city. Breakfast and Dinner were good, lots of choices, fresh and well stocked buffet-style. Staff was polite, eager to help. All in all, this is a great place to stay.
