Use google maps but with a little bit of homework. Some of the names aren't translated well and you'll need to find them somehow. For example, "king David" street may be "David hamelech" street in google. It helps if you or someone you know know a little bit of Hebrew to know that hamelech means king and be able to spot the street on the map. At the same time, a comment by a reviewer of the place in google mentioning the address in English may also help google identify the spot. If you cant find something let us know and we'll point you to it.

Theres also something potentially better called Waze that you can look into.

Google Maps works fine - you can print off all the maps you need. You can also use Waze, however, again you'll have to print out directions maps in advance unless you have an internet connection for your phone. If you do, then Waze will also give you real time traffic updates.
