As our cruise had a two night stop in Ashdod, we decided to book into the Montefiore Hotel so that we could be based in Jerusalem and make the most of this amazing and historic city.
This hotel appealed as a good value hotel in a central location. Location wise the Montefiore is just at the top of the main Ben Yehuda Street and absolutely ideal for the main areas of West Jerusalem and within good walking distance of the Old City.
Upon arrival the staff were friendly and we found our room on the 2nd floor to be adequately appointed. Sadly the bathroom and shower were somewhat tired and in need of renovation. The beds were adequate, but not as good as the beds we left on the cruise liner!
We selected the Bed and Breakfast option, but be warned the Israeli breakfast - which includes salads is not for the weak hearted! Thankfully there is also cereal and toast available for us lesser mortals!
In summary, an average hotel stay, but in a very handy location for this most amazing city.
Net Promoter Question: Would I recommend this hotel to a family member or friend? Answer: Yes, quite likely.
