“GOOD TOURIST HOTEL”
Reviewed 20 February 2014

This hotel is close to Old Jerusalem and has a parking garage if you drive but it is not free. I think we paid 20 Shekels a night for it. There is WiFi in the reception area close to the bar which is free and you get one hour free in your room every day. Be warned it is very slow.
The hotel itself I would consider 3 star and is very busy and bustling when the coaches of tourists come in for food and rooms. However, considering the size of these parties and the food which they require I think this hotel does a more than adequate job not only with its facilities but with the food. There is a swimming pool outside but of course not useable in winter time. We stayed 4 nights and was impressed by the closeness of the Old Jerusalem, and very impressed with the food in the restaurant. We come from Georgia in the States and we are British and we found the selection of salads, fish, meats, breads, cheeses, cooked foods absolutely excellent and good value for the amount you pay for breakfast. We always had more than enough to eat and didn't encounter any adverse rudeness from the staff. What I did find was a brusqueness from the men but I think that is their way and they are not all smiley and talking about the weather as we Brits tend to do. Our room was spacious and could do with some tlc but the bathroom and separate toilet were more than adequate for us. There was a hair dryer supplied which was good as well as shampoos, soaps, tissues, etc. The bar staff were friendly and again the food prepared by them very, very good. I would most certainly recommend this hotel to other travelers. We had a hire car which we drove around in Jerusalem but parking was not always easy and the drivers again brusque and use their horns a lot. Loved this place! Bring your walking shoes, plenty of water and maps and you will have the thrill of a life time being there. Oh, I took a couple of fancy things to wear in the evening but honestly no one cared what we wore and it was very casual. Dress accordingly if you are headed out to churches, mosques, etc. as a lot of people in the Old Jerusalem are religious and it is just respectful to be a little modest when there. Oh a word of warning about the Friday night dining. It is hugely busy Friday night and the Saturday nothing is open until later in the day in Jerusalem and the hotel does only serve cold items of food until later on Saturday. They supply hot water for tea and coffee but you will have to get it yourself. This is all part of their Shabbat at the weekend. We were lucky to be in the lobby seated at a table when a large group of Jewish people joined us and started singing their traditional songs and then we were being offered tea with mint and cookies and nuts. They wanted us to join them but we felt it only polite to duck out after 20 minutes and let them celebrate their time together without us intruding. All very interesting.

Room Tip: We had a room on the ground floor overlooking the pool. It had a balcony which was lovely to sit on...

I had a really pleasant stay at the Leonardo! The room was spacious, the bed comfortable and the bathroom excellent. The hotel is near to a tram stop, which is convenient since we arrived by public transport. We were welcomed by a friendly receptionist and got great information about the city.

Even though we only stayed for one night, our stay was very comfortable. The room was spacious and tidy and the view over the city beautiful. The location is good since the hotel is situated near a stop of tram 1 and on walking distance from both the old and the new city centre. The personnel was friendly: they helped us plan our upcoming trip through Israel. Overall I would recommend this hotel to anyone who is looking for a pleasant, comfortable stay.

Had a very pleasant stay at this hotel, we could check in earlier and were offered a complimentary drink at the lobby. Staff was really nice, helped us sorting out our trip through Israel. Always nice to get good inside information! Room was clean and well decorated, bed comfortable. Location is right next to a tram 1 stop and close to the old city. Would certainly recommend this hotel!
