Staff is friendly and helpful. the location great, close to the herod's gate. But the rooms are not clean, bathroom are old, chalk all over the tap and the bath. A lot of bleach and a good scrub would do much good. Breakfast is basic compared with other places.

My favourite hotel during my stay in the Middle East. Friendly staff and great location in busy East Jerusalem. Room was small but with TV, bathroom fine. Good value and delicious breakfast. Also paid extra for dinner one night - this was a little expensive but very tasty.

This hotel is decent and simple within the vicinity of shops, restaurants as well as within a short walk to the old city ie. Mosque of Al Aqsa, Dome of Rock and the old market place. Nice clean and basic rooms with friendly service. Food provided for breakfast and dinner are alright.

For the price, this hotel is shabby, with old and decrepit rooms. Unfortunately, I was committed to stay here for five nights. The bathroom was in poor condition, with a leaking sink, a not too clean tub with a dirty plastic mat. Every day was a crap shoot of whether I would get all the towels and a mat to put down. No hair dryers or coffee makers. When I asked for a hair dryer, I was given one, but then it disappeared from the room. Actually, they took it out of the closet. After I threw a fit, they did replace the hair dryer.

The lobby has a big non-smoking sign, but the staff smoke in an alcove in the lobby.

The staff were very nice and helpful.

Room Tip: I don't know that there are any good rooms. I would go for one of the balcony rooms.

The Capitol Hotell has a great location with a short walk to all the best sites in East Jerusalem. Five minutes from the Western Wall, five minutes to the American Colony with it's wonderfull book store:) the hotell straff is friendly, the rooms are old and shabby, but the price is nice. The breakfast was good.

We stayed there for five days and it is okey.
