The biggest downside to this apartment is that it is in a very loud location. If you can sleep through noise, then this is not an issue, and I would probably give the place four or even five stars. If you can't sleep through the noise, or can't easily, I would probably give the place a lower number of stars, like two or three.
In short, this place has everything you could want from a short-term rental - a washer/dryer that works, wireless Internet, etc. It's very close to the main attractions in Jerusalem - you can reach the Old City at a casual stroll in 20 minutes. Ben Yehuda street is right outside of your window, which means easy shopping and places you can grab a quick bite to eat. There's a 24-hour supermarket right across the way where you can buy basics and a larger supermarket about a 15-minute walk away.
The owner is pretty flexible about arrival and leaving arrangements and helps out if you don't understand how to work things. He provides a good level of service and is easy to reach if you need him.
The apartment is reasonably comfortable. The bed and pull-out couches are comfortable and good quality. The chairs and table are a little Spartan for my tastes. The apartment also has a dishwasher.
Unlike other vacation rentals, the owner provides you with all of the basics that you need there - dishwashing powder, laundry powder, etc. This makes it easy to come in and go out.
I would recommend washing the dishes before you use them. I don't know if it had just been a while before we were there, but everything had a fine coat of dust when we arrived.
Parking here is expensive if you have to park during the day - 90 NIS a day during the week. 20 NIS for a night. You can find on the street parking, which is free until 8 am, sometimes, but not if you come back too late at night.
