“Great value, good breakfast, trouble at check-out”
Reviewed 13 July 2012

We had a great stay at the Commodore Hotel. Do not be alarmed if a Jewish taxi driver is hesitant to take you to East Jerusalem from TLV Airport at 4am. Ours said that the hotel’s location “was like Gaza”, although that could not be farther from the truth. Check-in was easy upon arrival, and the clerk at the front desk gave us an additional discount because we are students. The rooms were spacious and clean – a standard three star hotel. Breakfast was fantastic each morning. There was a wide array of traditional Arab foods, and the service was excellent. The Arab bus 75 goes straight from the hotel to Damascus Gate. Taxis are a cheap option too. We did not feel safe walking to the Old City from this hotel at night. The English skills of the front desk staff were excellent, although the night staff could not speak Hebrew, only Arabic (which is strange considering it’s in Israel…). The hotel arranged a one day trip to Masada and the Dead Sea, which we very much enjoyed.

Our problem with this hotel came at check-out. When we tried to check out, the woman at the front desk abruptly demanded an additional 100 euros from us saying that we paid an incorrect price at check in. We argued for 10 minutes and showed her our receipts before she finally relented. We did feel very intimidated by the staff at this point. I don’t think that experience happens to most travelers, though.

I would recommend the hotel for its excellent value, but be sure to get all of your paperwork and receipts in order when you arrive.

Stayed in mid May 2012 with my family. The family room we took was very comfortable with a balcony overlooking the Mormon center with a nice view of jerusalem. Beds are comfortable with super white sheets. The recently renovated well thought of setup room has all amenities we needed such as fridge, hairdryer, safe and of course WiFi. When we first checked in and opened the room, amazingly the whole room lit up automatically for us which my son real liked as a real welcome.
Breakfast is very good and staff were helpful. About 1.5 km away from old city (not far) however be prepared for a steep hill. Bus 75 can be used just outside the hotel incase you prefer not to walk.
Will go there definitely for our next visit to Jerusalem.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the south side face the Mormon center with a view of Jerusalem and Agusta Victoria. As...

on mount of olives in a moslim neigbourhood near the mormon organisation, 20 minutes walk from Lion's agte or Herods gate, or direct connection with bus 75.
The hotel offers a good price/quality ratio. The rooms are reasonably big, the AC is working +/- well, the staff is very friendly.
The breakfast is a little bit poor, parking spots are along the busy and noisy street, beware if you have a long car.

We (couple) went at the end of January and stayed for two nights. We haggled a bit and got some money off as it was low-season and basically the only ones staying there. It's a nice area to stay in if you're interested in the Arab part of town and also close to the sites on Jabal el Zeytoun. The Old City is approximately 20 minutes away (walking slowly) and we took a taxi to get to the West (about 10 minutes but very expensive heh).

The rooms were extremely clean and modern and when we realised the balcony door didn't look they immediately gave us a new (and better) room. Everybody was extremely friendly and helpful (I don't think there is anything they don't know about Jerusalem) and although I spoke to them in Arabic mostly their English is good too.

The owner is very helpful and makes sure you're comfortable and took us to Gethsemane and sorted us with umbrellas on the rainiest day of my life.

Nearby are two small shops for water and snacks. The breakfast buffet is big and served early and keeps you full for quite a few hours. Also, there is a bus right outside the hotel from Damascus Gate up to Jabal el Zeytoun.

All in all, an excellent hotel (especially for couples) and it made our stay in Jerusalem extra special.
