Allenby 2 is much more than a Bed and Breakfast...it is an experience. If you want fancy, elegant, or artsy, then go somewhere else. If you just want a great experience then stay here. Allenby is like being in a friend's home and eating at his table. Allenby is a place to meet and visit with interesting, everyday people from all over the world in an intimate setting. Many languages are spoken here but English, Hebrew, German, and Russian seem to be the most helpful in communicating with others at Allenby 2. The actual house itself was once an older, prominent mansion-type home in the historical neighborhood of Romema, Jerusalem sitting on the Allenby Square. It is a literal stone's throw from the central bus station. The monument there, now surrounded by a lively playground for the neighborhood orthodox children, is a tribute to the surrender of the Ottoman Army to the British in 1917. In those days this spot was in the outskirts of Jerusalem, sitting just one half block from Jaffa Road that leads to the Jaffa gate of the Old City. One can easily walk the distance to the Old City in about 30 minutes or you can jump on the new light rail that runs the entire length of Jaffa Road and beyond. The ride to the walls takes about 10 minutes. I have stayed with Danny Flax on multiple visits to Jerusalem. You can trust him. He will bend over backwards to make sure you have a great visit and leave satisfied. He gladly dishes out travel advice and helps you figure out where to go and what buses to take. He will give you advice on what to see if you ask. He offers free wireless and a hearty breakfast that is prepared and served to your liking. If you like to cook your own lunch and dinner then walk to the nearby Manhe Yehuda market, buy some fresh fruits, vegetables, and meats and cook them up in the large kitchen whenever you want to eat your own way. You can keep food in the large refrigerator or you can eat out at any of the nearby restaurants. The house has been carved up into various sizes of rooms that vary from small to large but all are affordable and clean. Like most neighborhoods in Jerusalem there are city noises that you have to put up with, but taken as a whole I love staying here and will stay here again, and recommend it to my friends.
