“Stay Away!”
Reviewed 20 February 2014

Where to begin....this hotel is older and not in very good condition. I have stayed in older hotels before but they were clean. The room was very small and the furniture was very dated - think 70s velvet. There was a television but there was no remote...which turned out to be a good thing since it didn't work anyway. The bathroom was dirty - the bottom of the shower curtain was black with mold/mildew and the water coming out of the shower was like someone pouring water over your head. There was also construction of kind taking place down the hall so their was furniture everywhere, tons of paint fumes and cigarette smoke from the workers wafted down into the room. Three separate cab drivers asked how we ended up there. There are much better options, cleaner and safer, in Jerusalem.

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.

Reviewed 30 December 2013

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.
