“Convienient for a medical trip”
Reviewed 30 September 2013

We stayed here because my husband was being seen at the hospital. The location was perfect for not only visiting the hospital but also seeing the old city. The rooms were acceptable and provided for a much needed rest after a long flight from the states. We enjoyed our stay here and also the mall that was connected. Did not have the feel of a typical hotel but served its purpose quite well.

I had to stay in this hotel while doing one of my license examinations. The hotel is located extremely convenient, being a part of the shopping center at Hadassa Hospital. Meters away from the entrance to the new building and from the buss station and so nice access to the city.
The hotel is divided in 2 parts the one side with medical facilities, where women after delivery may chose to stay and the other part used by visitors.
The hotel is average, clean, decent, but nothing exciting, the dinner, (80-90 shekels, did not got a bill …) is a low quality hospital food, the breakfast included is somehow better , the food is not even the issue , but for 120 euro /night single , there is place for improvements.
No thrills, a good option for those in need.
Health and successes to everyone !

We stayed here for 10 days while our 10-year-old son was unexpectedly hospitalized while were on vacation in Israel. It was our 2nd day in Israel and he had a ruptured bowel (from Meckel's diverticulum) and required emergency surgery. How awful is that?

The fine people at the Ein Kerem Hotel welcomed us very gently and with comfort. They really looked us in the eye with concern for our family--everyday. They were sold out for the Passover holiday when many families actually stay at the hotel for the whole holiday. They had a room for us on the 4th floor...the post-maternity spa! We paid the posted rate of $182 US per night for 3 of us which included a big Israeli breakfast.

The rooms are modern with upscale furnishings, flat screen TV's, nice showers, mini fridge, safe, good closet, and a changing table!

The hotel entrance is at the mall level and since it's built on the steep hillside, you go down to the rooms. There's a lovely courtyard, elegant sitting area, and stunning dining room which overlooks the pretty countryside.

The breakfasts were a cut above, even on Passover (they go Kosher for Passover) with many salads, warm dishes, fruit, juices, baking, yogurts, etc. The atmosphere was friendly and we met people who were staying at the hotel as long-stay hospital outpatients for cancer treatment etc. Two were from as far away a Cypress.

We took turns staying with our son and taking walks around the area. Right at the hotel is a modern mall with chains stores (Fox, Aroma, mini Supersal...) and a food court. It's wonderful that there are so many amenities right there.

Everyday we went for a walk on our own and never felt nervous about being alone. It's a fabulous 15 minute hike to the delightful village of Ein Kerem. You pick up the trail in the lowest doctor's residence parking lot. We had the best gelati ever in Ein Kerem at a place called Tresor (I think?). You can also visit the many Christian religious sites like Mary's fountain, the Notre Dame de Sion convent, a Gregorian church and St. John the Baptist's church. There are many artists studios on the pretty side streets. This is a must.

Many of the cross-Israel hiking trails converge below the Hospital. You have the Israel Trail, the Hadassah Trail and the Jerusalem Trail and we did the whole circumnavigation of Hadassah going on all these trails. You can get a map (in Hebrew) at the hotel front desk. These are fabulous trails, well-marked that will take you through the beautiful countryside past ancient lookout forts and by farms that look like Tuscan paintings.

There are some interesting places to stay in Ein Kerem itself, like an old convent and Notre Dame, but if you need to be by the hospital, the Ein Kerem hotel isn't a fallback position--it's ideal. It's a one minute walk to the main entrance of the hospital.

Back to the hotel: it was super clean and everything worked and was excellent value. I wish we could have done the 10-day hiking trip we had planned but if you need to be at Hadassah or want an upscale way to see Ein Kerem, this is it.

They said the lobby had wifi but I'm not sure it was working when we tried. The hospital has wifi throughout and we made good use of it.

By the way, our son made an excellent recovery with no complications. The care he (and we) received at Hadassah hospital was beyond outstanding. We were in an open pediatric critical care unit with a dozen families of all backgrounds from Hassidic Jews to Arabs, to modern Russian and Jewish Israelis. Everyone congratulated each other's small achievements in a warm and loving way. As one of the doctors said to us: this isn't the trip you planned but you will see the "real Israel". Indeed. Thank you all.

This newly built hotel was a revelation. While on a whirlwind 3 week
trip we had little time to reflect before we arrived. After staying
for 5 days in January 2009 it proved to be the most surprising place we stayed at in Israel. Its attached to the Hadassah Hospital at
Ein Kerem, around 10 minutes by car or taxi from the very centre of
Jerusalem.

The setting is beautiful. The hotel is directly above Ein Kerem on a
hillside. The views of the valley and hills are magical and ever
changing. From the lobby, take the time to walk through the forest and
stumble on churches and generally sublime architecture. The Yad Vashem
Holocaust Museum and The Herzl Museum are literally up the road.

Access is easy, especially if you have your own vehicle. Buses and
taxis serve the hotel regularly, as you would expect of a hospital
precinct. Unlike many of the places we stayed, car parking was a breeze. Unique for Jerusalem, really. There is a secure car parking facility underneath the hotel with lifts taking you to the lobby.

I have posted some of our own photos of the rooms. They are modern
with large picture windows with all of the features you would expect
including air conditioning, safe, and bathroom supplies. Rooms are
serviced daily except Saturday. Apparently, a number of them have
kitchenettes. However, we stayed in two regular rooms with an
interconnecting door. We found this ideal for a family with teenagers.

Breakfast is available in the dining area which has terrific views of
the surrounding countryside. The buffet is Israeli in nature so expect
salads, cold cuts and fruit. However, there are the traditional hotel
coffees, cereals and breads (toast) for more foreign palates.

Even during our rather short stay we made friends with the staff. They
are happy, approachable and always seem busy helping out someone.

Above the hotel is a mall housing cafes (Aroma et al) bakeries,
falafel and other fast food joints and pharmacies. Certainly all the benefits of staying in the middle of the city without the hassle!
