We chose this hotel for its very affordable price, especially compared to prices of other hotels in Jerusalem, regarldess of very contradictory reviews we had read about it. However, once we were there, we very happy with almost everything about the hotel - we had a superior suite (containing a very spacious living room with a small annexed kitchen with a electrical tea kettle, a bedroom,a bathroom and a balcony).The suite was furnished very nicely, the furniture was not as old as mentioned in some of the previous reviews. One morning we woke up to see many many small flies and ants coming out of a small hole in the bathroom, but it was taken care of quickly. When we came back to our room, there was nothing. Beds were extremely comfortable. Breakfast was good, offering a couple of types of juices, various local spreads, but also "common" butter and marmelade, vegetables, but no fruit at all (what came as a surprise especially after we saw such a variety of fresh fruit sold at the local markets) and no bread rools, only sliced bread from a plastic bag which had to be toasted. But even better than breakfast itself was the breakfast room - calm, cosy and extremely enjoyable. Some people took their breakfast in the lovely garden.
The location of the hotel is just perfect- it is only 10 minutes walk from the Damascus Gate (the Old City) and close to tram, bus and sherut stops.
The staff was very professional. I would mention Mahmoud in charge for the dinning room and breakfast who was taking care that coffee was hot all the time and that everything was there as needed by the guests, Ibrahim from the reception and another receptionist (wearing glasses) whose name I ddi not get, but who was especially helpful with various pieces of advice about getting around and whose English was just perfect.
WiFI was not working at all, at least not at my mobile phone (I also heard other guests complaining about the same thing), but there was a PC in the reception area with a free Internet access.
The room was cleaned every day, but rather carelessely I would say. One day we found a cleaning cloth on the table in the living room, left over and forgotten by the cleaning staff. The wash-basin was left completely uncleaned one morning with traces of make-up and everything.
All in all, I was very satisifed with the hotel and I would gladly recommend it to everyone.
