“Central location at affordable price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013

Hotel is in great central location-short walk to Ben Yehuda Street (the main artery with shops, restaurants) and Jaffa Gate (into the old city). Located on a quiet street ensures a decent nights sleep. Clean and relatively room, with comfortable beds, tea/coffee making facilities, TV and daily maid service. Not a posh place by any means but very affordable and price includes a fairly good breakfast....cereals, breads, salads, eggs and cold coffee unfortunately. Friendly and helpful hotel reception staff.

We stayed here for 5 days. The place was comfortable and in a great location. We could walk to the old city, museums, the local market, the light rail and plenty of shops and restaurants. Also, it is on a quiet street with a great cafe, market and deli across the way. The breakfast was wonderful and the staff was extremely helpful in helping us set up tours, and checking on bus schedules, etc.

A good hotel for the price, wonderful location and nice rooms. We booked connecting rooms - they only have a few I think. Reception was always friendly, breakfast isn't a huge selection but then it's not a huge hotel and what there is was fresh and good. Cafes and very friendly little supermarket right outside the door, and a craft market outside on Friday morning.

Room Tip: The room next to the lift did have a bit of noise from the lift machinery but could only hear it whe...

This is my third stay in five years at the Montefiore in which time it has had a refurbishment - glad to say that the rooms are more comfortable and clean although still spartan-bring all the toiletries you need as only a shower cap, 'vanity set (i.e. two bits of cotton wool and a small nail file) are provided along with wall-mounted liquid soap . The breakfast is unvarying and limited which gets boring if you are staying for week each time as I do - in the land of fruit and good coffee - you'll get fruit squash and a choice between instant or weak American style coffee which is not great.

But the hotel is quiet, the staff are helpful and opposite is a wonderful delicatessen with all kinds of goodies and a restaurant which sells great quiches and there's the Artists House restaurant which is expensive but worth the treat. The location is also very good.

Room Tip: Rooms on higher floors

Thank you for taking the time to write about your stay.
We are proud to tell you that just a few days ago we have terminated the contract with our food supplier, and we have started to serve an amazingly good breakfast in our new dinning room.
Items at breakfast change daily, and so far, we see our guests with very happy faces ..

pictures of our new breakfast will be uploaded to our website within a few days.

I am sure that on your next stay with us at the Montefiore, you will be even more content with the hotel.

Best regards and see you again soon,
Naama Yemini

I stayed in this hotel twice in the space of two weeks. The rooms were very comfortable, and the room on the top floor (701) had a fabulous bathroom and a roof deck. The location is perfect--in a quiet side street, within walking distance of many things, including the Old City and Ben Yehuda St. with all its restaurants and coffeeshops. For Jerusalem, the prices are reasonable. They will lend you a laptop and the wifi is free, but you have to use it in the lobby. Tea and coffee facilities in the room.

This hotel is simple, but effective, close to the Ben Yehuda st. in a quiet sideroad.
Staff is not customer friendly if you don' t speak hebrew or arab, completely ignoring guests going in or out.
Parking is a problem in the area. The hotel has no parking available. They have a 55 shekels per night arrangement with a local parking lot. So if you just need a car to get at the hotel and plan to return your rental car the same day, you better drop off your luggage and first return the car, or find a parking place for a few hours.
Wifi in the rooms is a great add of this hotel.

15 min. walking distance to the Jaffa Gate. The hotel offers a great location to visit the old city and is located in a very nice area of the city with many shops , restaurants and cafes
The rooms are fine, the bathrooms are a little old fashioned.
The breakfast is kosher, is more or less ok.
The restaurant serves excellent quality food, is expensive, but the people who work there are not friendly which is a real pity.
Anyway we would return to it, mostly because if the location.
