very comfy family hotel. Excellent service and quite surrounding. Beautiful view of the town from our bedroom and the breakfast was plentiful.

Room Tip: rooms on top floors have a better view,

The Mt. Zion hotel is located just outside the Old City of Jerusalem, about a 10-15 minute walk from the German Colony (with lots of shops and restaurants) and accessible to the Old City by foot. Our room had a gorgeous view of the Old City and the Mount of Olives, which was just an incredible way to wake up in the morning. The rooms weren't quite as luxurious or as big as they appear on the website, but they were clean and comfortable, and each room had lovely decor - I think we stayed in the newer part of the building. The lobby is big and beautiful, with a bar, comfortable chairs and a great view - a great place to hang out. The breakfast was excellent! Lots of salads, yogurts, fresh fruit, and some hot dishes. The little shop in the lobby actually has pretty good prices on some jewelery and things we saw elsewhere in the city.

My only complaint is really the price. It's a very expensive hotel (~$350-400/night) and personally I would have expected to pay $200-250. I think you pay in part for the location and the amenities (it was off-season so we didn't use the pool or Hammam, and we didn't use the spa), and I know Jerusalem is expensive, but it just seems very pricey. In addition, the Wi-Fi was $15/day, which was ridiculous. No free Wi-Fi anywhere, not even in the lobby. We were advised by friends to find a coffee shop where there is often free Wi-Fi.

In all, I really liked this hotel. It was pretty, comfortable, quiet, and had a delicious breakfast, but I would probably only stay here again if there was a special deal going on.

Room Tip: Definitely ask for a view of the Old City!

This hotel is built in a very old Arabic compound of buildings. The stile is Arabic - with arches, high ceilings and matching decoration. Some will love it, some less, but no one will be indifferent to it. Very nice Hamam (like a wet sauna, but bigger, decorated – you can ask for oil to massage your partner of yourself) and a nice hot tab just outside the Hamam, in the open air - so your body enjoy the hot water while your head is chilling in the cold air while listening to the bells of the Jerusalem churches. Overall very nice hotel. The breakfast was nice, even though they could do some better in decorating the dining room. The room we got was huge - I could live in the bathroom. The service was very good and responsive.

Room Tip: Ask for a view to the old town!

I like this hotel, i frequented it several times. It is built ona side of a hill, well it decends into a valley to be more percise so the lobby ( ground floor) is actually the top floor ! the reception area is wonderful . Big windows overlooking the valley and the old city walls. The outdoor Swimming pool is on the bottom floor m novice set up. For the non observant or secular, on Shabbath , the pool bar /diner is closed :(

We were part of a large Bar Mitzvah group & booked an executive suite. The place was old & dingy -nothing like the photo's showed. What was worse was the price paid of $648/night- in hindsight staying at the David Citadel would have been a much better choice.
Position is in the middle of nowhere & if you want to use the internet service, you need to pay for every device.
Stay away from this place-its a shocker & needs to be pulled down!
