Beit Ben Yehuda

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 27 June 2013 via mobile

Beds too short and inconvenient. Tiny hostel rooms. Simple breakfast. We would pay more for the eden hotel nearby. Never again for us. But we shall overcome. Love will win. And 200 characters is too long to review

The Beit Ben Yehuda guesthouse is a perfect accommodation if you are looking for a cheap, clean and nice place and not for a luxury hotel. The staff is very friendly and helpful and we enjoyed the breakfast with fresh bread and salads. You can also use the fully equipped kitchen, the roof terrace and the computer room (free wifi), which is a big advantage when you are staying several days or you have children.
The guesthouse is situated in a beautiful neighborhood of Jerusalem (Talpiyot, near the Haas promenade) and is easily accessible by bus from and to the center (Bus number 7, going from Ramat Rachel, Talpiyot, Cinematheque, city center, Yaffa street, Knesset, Israel Museum until Mount Herzl). The main building (reception), a beautiful typical old Jerusalem house, was the historical home of Eliezer Ben Yehuda, the reviver of the Hebrew language and is used today as seminar center. The rooms are located in the adjacent new wing. The rooms are not very large (the one which are wheelchair accessible are a bit larger), but they are clean and and functional (linen, towels and shampoo is provided).

Room Tip: There are rooms with 2 or 4 beds, most of the rooms are suitable for wheelchairs or families with ch...

Beit Ben Yehuda is a small conference center, primarily for Christian groups from northern Europe, that also provides guest room accommodations. My room was spartan but clean and comfortable, with adequate space for storage; two narrow single beds and two fold-down beds allow the room to accommodate four people with a layout similar to a Pullman train car sleeper (but somewhat larger). The pleasant residential neighborhood is about a 40 minute walk from the Old City; there is regular bus service roughly two blocks away (remembering that public buses do not run in Jerusalem from Friday night until Saturday night). The breakfast choices included in the price are better than many more expensive locations and having coffee and ice water available 24/7 is a nice benefit, as is access to a refrigerator and kitchen facility. The multilingual staff could not be more accommodating, providing help in getting around Jerusalem, arranging taxi to the airport, taking messages. In short, on a limited budget, Beit Ben Yehuda was a surprising good choice.

we stayed here for two nights and it was so clean and friendly! the staff helped us with anything that we needed. the kitchen was filled with every piece of equipment that we needed for making breakfast, dinner etc... they are located within walking distance to many markets, an amazing ice cream/salad/pizza bistro and only a 30 minute walk to the old city. when we come back to jerusalem we will stay here again. the rooms were spotless and i can't stress enough how amazing the staff was!!
