The Holy Land Hotel is a clean, quiet hotel only about a block from Herod's Gate in East Jerusalem. It's got wireless internet, which I can sometimes pick up in my room on the first floor, and always in the lobby and coffee shop. Staff are very helpful and friendly. Breakfast was included in my room rate and was better than continental. The room, bed, and bath are both nicely sized for a single traveler.
The only thing you MUST know about this hotel is that it's located in an Arab district, and you may have problems getting Jewish taxi drivers to bring you here. I've had two now drop me off a few blocks away rather than drive into the heart of enemy territory. As a single blonde woman, I'm dead serious about this - please be careful if you stay here and go out walking. I don't feel it's safe for single female travelers. With a man, ok; in a group, fine; two women, you're pushing it; single woman, really, pay a little extra and stay further west. Or if you stay here, find the number of a taxi driver who feels comfortable in this area, and call that person when you need a taxi back to the hotel. I had a Hassidic Jewish driver pick me up from my appointment at Hebrew University today, and I was not imagining the aggression or antagonism towards him from the locals as he got me as close to this hotel as he dared.
