A warm welcome, full of arabic kindness from the hotel members. They always have kind words and good advises for you. Breakfast are amazing, as well as the complementary soup offered each evening.
Alcazar hotel is well situated, 10 minutes from the Lion, Damascus and/or New gates of the old city. It is also closed (about 15-20 minutes) to the Olive mount and its amazing view on the Haram al Sharim (Temple mount in english) and the remainder city.
I warmly recomand this place for a pleasant stay and nice visit of the Old City of Jerusalem.

The Alcazar hotel do not look much when you first arrive. No parking, old front, but them you enter on it, look nice all gold and red. The people that help you on the front desk are really nice.
As soon that me and my fiancé arrive they did offers you a juice and a coffee.
The room is ok, the bed is not really comfortable but is not bad, it look like an orthopedic bad. It is a little too hard for my taste. But I did wake up with no back pain or nothing so I guess is good.
There is no air conditioning and for a city that is really hot the fan was not really much, for me this is the biggest problem at the hotel.
Over all is a cozy place and is good. If they had a Air conditioning would be great…

If you're traveling on a tight budget, this hotel might be a good choice. If you can stretch it a bit to stay in the new city you'll be much better off.
Location: The hotel is located in East Jerusalem, the Arab section of the city. It's characterized by noisy mosques, dirty streets, sidewalks occupied by inconsiderate drivers' cars, and store owners intent on ripping you off (no price tags at all). Forget about restaurants in the area. The nearest Old City Gate is to enter the Muslim quarter.
Facilities: The lobby and reception look old and in need of maintenance. The rooms look REALLY old and REALLY dirty. You wouldn't want to walk barefoot on those filthy carpets. The toilets are also very old and the hot water takes a while to come out. The rooms are also extremely noisy (AC equipment) and the heating was too noisy and hard to control.
Breakfast: There's a buffet with most Arab staples, freshly cooked every morning. So if you like to indulge in a little Middle Eastern banquet every morning this is the right place. There are coffee making facilities, bottled water and the occasional evening soup complimentary for guests. That's a plus.
Staff: Members of staff are accommodating, attentive, and helpful, with airport transport, for example. One person in particular would always try to engage you in conversation about international politics, which is a delicate topic. He would also be concerned with his praying instead of helping customers/guests at times.
Next time I'll try a different place, more centrally located, cleaner, and more pleasant to sleep in.

We stayed for one night at the Alcazar. We got there by car after having a bit of a hard time finding the hotel even after finding the right street, cause from the outside there's no sign saying it's the Alcazar. :) The staff was very friendly and they want you to feel comfy. The room was ok, generally clean, though the shower curtain in the bathroom was pretty gross, apart from that it was ok though. Light sleepers beware...it's right next to a Mosque, so there's a Mohezin singing at like 4.30ish in the morning...otherwise it's quiet and you can easily go back to sleep again after. :P The neighbourhood seems a bit scetchy at night, but fine during the day. It's about a 10 minute walk up&downhill to the Old City. Breakfast is good, there's a lot to choose from (or a lot to try if you wanna go for it all) and tea&coffee is free and available all day. WiFi's free in the comfy lobby.

Helpful staff, decent breakfast. Nice view of the Mt of Olives.

Very old rooms, the hotel must have been furnished in the 60's and never renovated since. Stains on the walls, carpets. No shampoo. You have to let the water run for 5 minutes before it gets warm. Walls are very thin, prepare to get intimate with your next door neighbour.
