I have stayed in this hotel on several occasions and feel it does a pretty good job overall. The food is just above average and the service is about the same. As others have noted, the dining rooms do get fairly loud, but thats to be expected during the busiest meal times. Arriving early for dinner is usually the best. The rooms are standard Israeli tour fare with the usual amenities and cleanliness has never been an issue.
I have only had one difficult experience here. The standard in Israel today is to charge for internet access-high speed or not-and this hotel is no exception. However, the last time I was there the hotel Rabbi ensured that the hotel modem was disconnected and hence there was no access. I understand the concept of shabbat and the use of electrical devices, but the hotel staff was of no help and did not seem able to even refund my $18 fee. An inconvenience for sure, but without any sort of remedy, the land of a refund merely made things worse.
If you're traveling with a group, this hotel will serve you fine and although it is quite a walk from the Old City, it's just an inconvenience. You will find that Gordon's Garden is just up the street though.
