This hotel is a great place to stay. It was nice and clean, but the location cannot be beat. I had a single room, and paid under 100 dollars for the night. It was simple, but all I needed. The room was quite and clean. The breakfast was truly terrible, but there is so much great food around Jerusalem for excellent prices, you will not miss this at all. No TV, but very quick internet that was included in the rate.
The hotel is located right inside the Damascus Gate on the Via Dolorosa. I took a shared taxi from the border crossing, and it was about 15 dollars. I had wheeled luggage, and easily navigated to the hotel from the taxi stop.
The roof of the hotel is an exceptional experience. you can see the entire old city from there, and watching the sun rise was breathtaking. Go up here for some great pictures showing the compactness of the city, as well as ones of the Dome of the Rock.
