I decided to stay at the Montefiore Hotel after it was suggested by the manager of the Jerusalem Inn Hotel, where I had stayed on my previous trip to Israel. He manages both places, and he thought that I might like to try something different.
The Montefiore is somewhat upscale and is much like the hotels that a westerner would expect. It is located in a reasonably modern building on Schatz St., which is very close to Ben-Yehuda. This is good because it's close enough that you can be on the pedestrian mall in a minute or two, without having all of the noise associated with closer places.
In terms of amenities, they have their own restaurant (which was pretty expensive). Breakfast was included with our room, and it was very tasty. They also have a nice lobby where you can sit and relax after a long day of walking the streets of Jerusalem. I think they had Wi-Fi, too, but I don't remember since I didn't have my laptop.
Rooms were clean and comfortable. Mine had a television, telephone, and teapot, which was really all I needed. The beds were in good shape.
I think the thing that really makes the Montefiore stand out is the staff. Everyone I spoke with was exceptionally friendly and happy to answer my many questions. They have been trained very well.
