We live in Israel, but wanted to spend one night with some friends overnight in Jerusalem. We chose A Little House in Bakah because it was very affordable and near where we were having dinner, and I don't regret the decision. Here are the pros and cons:
- Very friendly and helpful staff.
- No frills, but generally speaking it's charming.
- They have tea and coffee available all the time.
- The room was on the smaller side, but was comfortable and tastefully decorated.
- The mattress and bedding were very comfortable.
- The shower had excellent water pressure and worked well.
- Though it's not common for all the rooms, the room we were given had a door that was translucent. That meant that when the sun came up (in my case around 6 AM) the room was filled with light.
- The room comes with a small TV that 's positioned in one corner of the room and does not swivel. It made it very difficult to watch.
- There was a private porch off of our room (that sounds nice enough) that was filthy, and had an umbrella lying on its side that took up a third of the porch. They would have been better off sealing the door and not allowing use of the porch.
- The room comes with breakfast at the restaurant (Polly) that's situated in the hotel. The breakfast was really pathetic. The portions were small, the bread wasn't good (that's incredible to anyone who knows what bread is generally like in Israel), the orange juice was not drinkable, the coffee was instant (though you could purchase brewed coffee), and the service wasn't good.
All in all, as the saying goes, "You get what you pay for..."
