The Kaplan Hotel is a fairly bare bones place to stay on the main drag in Jerusalem. It is right across the street from Zion Square, off Jaffa Street, and is pretty busy (and noisy) every night (including Shabbat). Eli, and his brother, are very hospitable and pleasant. There is a common room with a kitchen, refrigerator, small table, with a washer and dryer in an adjacent room. Coffee is available in the morning, and there are many places close by that serve breakfast, along with pastry shops and bakeries.
Our room was fairly small, with a balcony, TV, bathroom, closet, and wifi. My husband even got a haircut in a shop up the street from the Kaplan. We served with Sar-El during the week (on an army base), and stayed here one weekend.
The Kaplan is close to the Machne Yehuda market, and Ben Yehuda street. You will definitely get a feel for Jerusalem when you stay here. The Old City is about a 15-20 minute walk, plus you are just steps away from the new Light Rail train...very centrally located.
Tell Eli "hi" when you stop in!
