Apologies to the readers for my spelling mistakes in my last reviews ( "Jerusalem, what it was and what it is" is one of them...sigh... there is no laptop here but there is no blaming the devil either for one's rush at those internet cafes nor for this one's not always clear eyesight... That said, essentially, the review stands on its own feet:
Jerusalem Metropolis Hotel is located at a great location - at 200 meters or so from the Damascus Gate, the du rigueur entrance to East ( Old) Jerusalem.
Mahmoud, a Palestinian with a great zest for life, is the sophisticated but congenial owner who makes sure that the Jerusalem Metropolis' staff provides a welcoming service to the guests. The hotel's breakfast is generous - excellent indeed. This one is happy with an apple and a cup of tea though but it is so tempting to see a table overflowing with the fruits of the earth ...
This traveler appreciates a quiet room, that is the first thing that I ask at any hotel ( or hostal /"pension") where I stay. And I did get it. Thankfully. Considering the price gauging of so many Jerusalem's hotels, this one was lucky to have stayed at the reasonably priced Jerusalem Metropolis Hotel.
One never knows if it is going to be possible to revisit - and walk the walk through ...-Jerusalem, a striking city whose history is bathed by blood and ancient grievances but , in the case that it happens again ( and it might) I will stay at the same hotel, being welcomed by Mahmoud and his staff, again. No doubt about it. Jerusalem is a world city that deserves to be explored with an open heart & mind. And staying at Mahmoud's Jerusalem Metropolis Hotel offered me the solace necessary to embrace what Jerusalem is all about ...And that deserves a review of its own...
