Reviewed 26 August 2013

Located in the center of the old city .. And close to everything.
the price is totally fair....
it is close to Bab Almud gate, a couple of minutes around 2-3 minutes you can reach the gate..
it is good for families..the rooms is too wide and comfortable.
FYI:
the breakfast also nice and rich as it should be

The best thing about this hotel is it's superb location. You are right outside the old city walls between Herod's gate & the Damascus gate. Everything you want to see is in easy walking distance. The buffet breakfast offered lots of options. The rooms are adequate. The bathroom was new and clean.

I spent the first 5 days of Ramadaan at the Tulip Inn. The position of the hotel is excellent. Suhoor variety is commendable. However on many occasions I have found the cutlery and crockery sub standard. On occasions I found food residue still stuck to the "clean" cutlery. The lack of a bidet in the bathrooms I though was disrespectful to the Islam faith.

The name says it all. Opposite the walls of old Jerusalem between Herod’s gate and the Damascus Gate, the location could not be more convenient for access to the old city. The view from the first floor lounge window or the roof patio is quite fascinating. The sunlight certainly turns the walls golden at times, and below in the street local people go about their business with little stalls or hurrying to the bus station next door. There is endless activity to observe from the comfort of the lounge. Probably few rooms look out on this view. Indeed room 217 was rather small and stuffy even with the window closed and the air conditioning on and looked out on a rather desolate side street. But most travellers are here to explore the city rather than spend much time indoors. The food was good and varied during the week we stayed. More fresh fruit salad (plentifully available across the road) would have been more welcome than the tinned fruit salad served at breakfast. The staff were welcoming and most helpful. For a better room we would gladly stay here again.

Room Tip: east facing rooms could be quite good for the view

Our room overlooked the old city walls - great location but a bit of street noise in the morning as the market set up outside. Friendly staff (find the review by Hugo M hard to understand as our experience of the staff was very good!). Bar prices a bit steep but take a beer up on the roof garden and you can forgive them this. Food good and plentiful. looks unattractive from outside but inside its clean, well presented albeit a little old-fashioned. Will be back next March.

We stayed here as part of a McCabe pilgrimage. The hotel is ideally located for the old city being only about 150 meters from the Damascus Gate.

Our room was at the back of the hotel at the end of the corridor and was very quiet spacious having a double bed and a single which we didn't use apart from keeping clothes on! The room was pleasantly decorated with pictures. The bathroom was very small, you had to open then close the door to get to the sink. There was a plentiful supply of hot water, towels etc.

The staff in hotel generally, bar and dining room were very friendly and helpful; the food was varied and freshly served as a self service buffet

Central place, near damascus gate and near some great restaurants, rooms have got good areas.
The downside of this hotel (as others in Jerusalem) is the absence of service from the lobby and also very rude and unfriendly.
The girl from the reception was a nulity. I said that in the next day we are going to the airport and she was unable to tell us to reserve a sherut for the next day (it was Shabat). In the next day we were unable to go to the airport in a sherut and we must get a taxi.
Very high price for what you get. 180 dollars (3 or 4 star price in Europe) for a zero star service.
