I am finally getting around to this review (and others) after three years. This is a quaint bed and breakfast set in the middle of an Orthodox Jewish neighborhood near the central bus station in what seemed to be a suburb of the Old City. It seemed equally situated among the various sites I wanted to visit besides the Old City such as Yad Vahim, a large souk, the Jewish Museum, etc. It is spare, architecturally old and full of ambiance with a bit of a Bohemian flare. If you are looking for luxury, don't stay here. The room is staunchly minimalist. But it helps one get the spiritual feel of the place. One begins to sense that one is in a very old country. I loved it really. Danny was not there as he went visiting that year. It was in May/June of 2009 I was there. His sister came now and again and there were one or two people who seemed to have taken up semi-permanent residence. What character! How colorful! Another reviewer said it wasn't so much B&B/Inn as it was an experience. I would say yes, I definitely agree. I had several easy, though brief chatty relationships with other travelers and with those who were semi permanent residents. All told wonderfully interesting stories. As a solo I have to say, it suited me well. I look forward to a time when I can return.
