Reviewed 1 August 2013

Very nice small hotel in Baka- small kitchen with a sitting room and TV, also small table and chairs, separate bedroom and bathroom with shower and bathtub- very comfortable, good bed and great A/C. Stay here and you receive a 10% discount in the Grand Cafe in the street level of the hotel- which has wonderful food- kosher dairy- Very nice staff and good location- elevator too. Would stay again

We stayed at Tamar, had 2 rooms for 4 nights. Each room had a comfortable King size Bed & Pull out sofa. The location was excellent, in a quiet residential area (Bakka) close to the Train Station. This is a new beautiful area of restaurants. We were 10min drive from the Old City. Tamar staff were always helpful, the guys more helpful than the girls in the office. I booked with Shy, he was great. Housekeeping was good. Rooms were clean, spacious for the size and ample closet space in the bedroom. Kitchens in the rooms were convenient. WIFI was free. Grand Cafe downstairs had great food, and a nice place. We stayed in building 2, as was further away from Cafe & street. There are 2 buildings, very nicely kept. Somewhat modern style.
We had parking underground in a very spacious lot. Full laundry facilities were also in the garage area, washer & dryer for a minimal fee. I liked that. Overall, I would stay there again.

I spent one night at the Tamar Residence with my family. The five of us were split into two separate rooms. Each room was spacious, clean and comfortable. The location is great and very quiet at night which makes sleeping with the windows open, no problem at all. The staff were friendly and even though I mixed up the check in/out times, they were able to have our rooms ready within 20 minutes.

We just returned from a two night stay at this "hotel" It is a great value and a really nice place to stay for a family or a couple. Well appointed, modern and has free parking. The staff was super friendly and helpful. The location, while not centrally located was still convenient for our needs. Room and bathroom was super clean and spacious. Kitchen was great. Would definitely stay here again.

Excellent for a mid-priced hotel. Separate bedroom with comfortable bed. Kitchenette stocked for two people. Sitting area with sofa and chair. Cute bathroom with thick towels. Two flat screen tvs. Parking and laundry in the basement. One plug for US electronics--no adapter needed. Iron and hair dryer can be borrowed from office. Prompt attention from office when needed. Attached restaurant. Maybe a half hour walk to the Old City. In the Baka neighborhood. We stayed for ten days.

We stayed 1 night at Tamar residence hotel, it was simple but very pleasant hotel. The area was very quiet and close to Jerusalem old city. We really enjoyed our stay. The front desk managed to book us 2 seat at the Colony restaurant (5 m walk) during the Sabbath evening which was very nice.
