Villa Bezalel Apartments
Reviewed 15 April 2014 via mobile

The location of these apartments right in the center of west Jerusalem can't be beat! Walking distance to tons of shops, the amazing huge outdoor market, Israel museum, parks, restaurants, Ben Yehuda pedestrian mall. The location is a bit noisy due to the cafe below but not too bad. The only problems we had was the bedroom being too light at night due to the street lamp right outside the window. There were no blackout curtains, and the roll down blinds were broken when we arrived, the owner promised they'd be fixed but they never were. Also, we kept running out of hot water, there were five of us and only ever enough hot water for one person to take a shower. But overall, the amazing location made up for minor inconveniences.

Spacious and very comfortable holiday apartment for a family with young children, like us. Modern furnishing. Located in a good and cool neighbourhood with walking distance from Old Jerusalem. Very nice and caring owner, who helped us with parking and came by to check if everything was ok. Absolutely will stay here next time we visit Jerusalem! Recommend!!!

We had a nice experience, since we arrived we realized that the location of the apartment is excellent, in less than 15 minutes, from the Old City of Jerusalem, and a block to take the bus or subway. The apartment we found it clean, we stayed in one room with two comfortable beds, and in the living room we had a sofa bed with sheets. Theygave us enough towels for our use, the kitchen is well equipped. Near are several supermarkets and stores, upstairs of the apartment have a Cafe with very friendly people that speaks english. The manager was very kind to us, if we needed anything, as we were several days, we received a cleaning to the room and changed the towels. It is a very clean and spacious spaces. We did spend an unforgettable experience, if we come to the city again, we will stay here again.

Room Tip: you can leave the a/c during the day, and when you come back to the room, will be very comfortable.

... we did not see any notpaying tenants (cocrouches) in A2. Towels could have been cleaner and some cleaning equipment should have been available. One closet more would have been nice.
We were satisfied with the apartment - especially the central location.
View to the back yard was not for tourists - but there was no traffic noice.
Heaters worked, we did not need air condition in the end of March.
Benny (manager, not owner) was there to meet us and available when needed.

I would never recommend it to anyone!
We came and called the owner (Benny), he told us “Someone will come and let you in”. SOMEONE came, let us in and required full cash payment immediately, I required a receipt, SOMEONE refused to give it. Next 30 minutes we were discussing this topic with SOMEONE, with Benny over the phone (he was very busy, couldn’t not meet us, but could tell me that “that is how it works”).
During these 30 minutes of discussion my friends realized that
1) Everything is untidy: linen (with hairs), walls, floor (looked like washed a month ago), kitchenette, bathroom. SOMEONE said they had “cleaning” after each guest, but I wouldn’t let this “cleaning personnel” even come close to my flat.
2) heating is not working in one of 2 bedrooms (+5 C in the night).
3) water heater is not working in another room (as soon as you try to turn it on – electricity is switched off in the whole flat).
For next 1 hour we were waiting for SOMEONE to come back for money vs finally agreed receipt and also bring somebody else to fix points listed above. Meanwhile the lady came ruffling what had to be “clean pillowcase” – no English word – calling to Benny or to SOMEONE…
At last SOMEONE came back with some adequate-looking lady, they brought the receipt, tuned the heating (not fixed that for normal work, just tuned it without the option to change anything further).
Also all of them told us that they were not in charge, they were working in the next door hairdressing saloon, and that WE SHOULD understand that. Unbelievable.
Next morning I met the cockroach in the center of dining table, hot water stopped working.

Nobody came to us till the last day - they were not pleased we didn’t leave at 10AM, you know…

For you reference – that were rooms 2 and 3 1st floor (connected).
P.S. And the location is really good. For that I give 2.
