Christmas Hotel
Ranked #70 of 101 Hotels in Jerusalem
Reviewed November 13, 2008

My wife and I recently stayed at the Christmas Hotel and we fell in love with the place. It's a charming little hotel within easy walking distance of the Old City of Jerusalem. We've visited Jerusalem several times before and always stayed at larger hotels, but this small hotel was a hidden gem. What set it apart from the competition was the friendly attentive service and the great food. The owner even treated us to drinks at the bar and personally assisted with the planning for some spur of the moment sightseeing we decided to do outside of the city. We would definitely recommend this hotel for anyone visiting Jerusalem.

FYI We were the first guests to stay in the hotel in July 07 since it was renovated. They didn't even have the numbers on the rooms up yet. Everything was brand new. Great location to the old city. Food was good in restaurant. My only complaint is that the twin beds are like all others in Israel-"baby bed size". This is true for every hotel for which I stayed in Israel and Jordan.

I've traveled to Jerusalem many times but this was my first stay at the Christmas Hotel. I definitely enjoyed my stay here and would recommend it to anyone who wants a moderately priced hotel that is within walking distance to the Old City. The food was great by the way and the staff exceptionally friendly.

I recently stayed at the Christmas Hotel and found the staff to be very friendly; almost like staying at a second home. The location was very convenient and just a few minutes walk to the Old City. The rooms were clean and comfortable. And the food was in my opinion some of the tastiest that I had in East Jerusalem. My only complaint would be the exterior of the hotel is very plain and drab, but the interior is quite nice and the friendly staff more than make up for any cosmetic dificiencies.

First, I would strongly advise staying in East Jerusalem. It is close to the old city, much less expensive than the West Jerusalem hotels, with much more friendly service. The Christmas is pleasant, very convenient to the Old City, with a pleasant, helpful staff. The rooms are certainly not remarkable but clean and adequate. My only criticism would be the pedestrian breakfast offerings.
