I recently traveled to Jerusalem and all over Israel and stayed at this hotel three different times. Their motto is "Service is not our job, it is our way of life", and they live it through and through.
STAFF- Very friendly, very welcoming, and very helpful. Everyone I interacted with spoke English. Montaser, who worked overnight, greeted us every morning and every evening as we came and left the hotel. He was very informative about the area and really made us feel like we were the most important guests in the hotel. Mohamad was incredibly kind and always anticipated our needs. The two girls at the front desk, Areen and Hilimat, were always so pleasant and accommodating.
PROPERTY- We stayed in three different rooms three times. Two faced the front of the hotel and looked out over Jerusalem. All three rooms were clean and had plenty of space for 5 large suitcases, items from shopping, and for my wife and daughter (mind you, I am 6'3").
LOCATION- The hotel is a five minute walk from Damascus Gate. There is a candy shop/ grocery store on the corner of the road that heads towards the Old City. Parking can be next to the hotel but there is cheaper parking up the street from the hotel. The hotel is located off of the main street so noise is not a problem. It is in a safe area with a police station less than a block away.
This will be the hotel I stay at every time I come to Jerusalem. A hotel where you leave feeling rested, satisfied, free of worry, and having made new friends is what makes a hotel 5 stars in my book, and the Capitol Hotel Jerusalem delivered just that.
