I spent 2 nights at the hotel while vacation. The hotel is well situated - about 15 minutes walk to Jaffa Gate and slightly less to Zion Gate. Jerusalem is hilly so expect an undulating walk to get anywhere but this is no fault of the hotel.
My room did not face in the direction of the Old City but other people in my group did have a room with the view - try arrange this as it really adds to the experience.
The bathrooms are clean and newly tiled but the style is quite basic. For experienced travelers you may expect something more trendy - if that's what you are after you need to spend more money and go upmarket. The basic fit out of the bathrooms did not bother me in the least.
The double bed was very comfortable and I really liked that I could open the window in my bedroom and enjoy the fresh air. The backside off the hotel faces over a residential area which is very quiet so there is no traffic noise with the windows open.
The staff were friendly and helpful.
Breakfast is a typical Israeli one, with lots of cheeses, vegetables, salads, and pastries (sweet and savory).
My only complaint with the hotel is the WI-FI policy. Each guest is entitled to 1 hour free WI-FI per day and this is really insufficient if one has work to check on.
I would happily stay at the this hotel again.
