My husband and I stayed for 3 nights in this place. First of all it is quite difficult to find. Very narrow street, which makes parking difficult. We received a nice and clean suite but no TV about which we were not notified before. Breakfast OK, nothing special. Service is nice. Small swimming pool is a real asset, especially if you are coming with children. The distance from Jerusalem is not far, but because of the many traffic jams, not convenient to go back in the afternoon for a rest and return again to Jerusalem. Again, I would not recommend the place if you want to spend all your time in Jerusalem. No TV in the room is really ridiculous nowadays.
