I've been there together with a group of friends to spend some days visiting Jerusalem. The best advanatge of that hotel is the location on a hill, the panorama we saw from our window was really beautifull. The hotel is not far from the old city, just 15-20min walking or 5min by taxi (a little bot expansive). Down the hill there's also the possibility to take a collective taxi.
The hotel services are very basic, since the structure, the rooms, and so on, seem not to be updated since 60's. Our room was spacious and bright, with a big french door to access the panoramic balcony, but, the room was without airconditioning! This was not a particualry pitty for us, since during the day we were not in the hotel and in the evening the temperature got down, but if somenone decides to stay there in the hot hours it should be impossible to support to stay in the room. The bathroom was old and without airdryer.
The buffet dinner has a lot of dishes but of pour quality.
On the other hand the personnel has always been very friendly with us.
The hotel works a lot with groups of turists/pilgrims, so the saty here could be not so funny for alone-travellers.
Recommended only for a low cost holiday in Jerusalem.
