“Wow, a must when seeing the old city!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2007

Our stay here for a week and a half can be summed up in one word: Wow.

The hotel itself is small and quite simple. Rooms are very clean, comfortable and simple.

Very helpful staff. Nice, but not complex breakfast. Paying extra for wonderful evening meals was a must, and well worth it! Never tasted anything quite like these simple yet tasty local cuisines: Eggplant never tasted like that before! (And I mean that in a good way.)

What really makes this place so special is that it is in the perfect location if you want to spend time looking around at the Old City parts of Jerusalem: It is located at the heart of the Old City! With spectacular views from the roof at night...you will not find any better experience than the one here. Just make sure you arrive during the day, as some streets are closed off at night which can lead to confusion in getting to the hotel.

Again...wow. It was truly an experience of a lifetime!!

Stayed at the hotel in October 2006 for about 3 days. I wanted a place in the Old City, as it seemed to be where the action is, and well known abroad. There are not a lot of hotels in the Old city, but I found this one run by Lutherans. I liked the reviews and booked it.
Costs was about $50-55 US, per day. The hotel is near the Jaffa Gate, as you enter it, bear to your right, you'll go down a long meandering street . I suggest you bring a map showing the hotel with you. I had a local help me find it, and had a map with me, just for ease. The local asked for large tip on arrival at hotel. At night some part of the street is dark, but the entire old city is darkish, and a bit grimy. You buzz the hotel door, and they let you in, a camera sees you. The hotel is clean and neat, light stone emphasized. Check in was easy, and business like, staff helpful. I had a room (single) down a long hall way, the room was extremely clean, sheets, bathroom, everything. The bed was a narrow single. No TV, or radio. Sometimes you can get board in it. You can hear the muslim call to prayer frequently at the back rooms in the hote.
The food served upstairs from the lobby is nice and adequte. They serve european style food, buffet syle, in a pleasant dining area. Overall the hotel is okay, nothing I really like about it except that is was clean, and in the Old City. Next time I think I would try to stay at a place with more hominess, and less pristine spartan environment. A tv also.
