I stayed at the National for many weeks back in the late 1990s. It was historic, but also going downhill in need of updating. Then, hard financial times forced its closure and it sat vacant for many years. To my delight I discovered it had been renovated recently and I was able to stay there in November 2012. I recommend it highly. The owner, Osama ali Salah, is a wonderful host and he has done a fantastic job at renovating the hotel. Furnishings are tasteful and modern. The all-weather terrace on the 4th floor is a real treat with its airy view. The hotel staff are exceptionally helpful and professional. The location is also excellent, being just around the corner from Salah ed Din Street, the vibrant commercial blvd of East Jerusalem; and just a 10 minute walk to the Old City. It is an ideal locale and now a very pleasant venue. I'll be referring all friends here.
