This hotel is located in an East Jerusalem neighborhood called Wadi El-joz. The service and friendliness was outstanding during my four night stay. There is a large lobby with free tea and plums usually available. The complimentary breakfast was very good as well. There is a small lift in the hotel. The rooms are outdated as the reviewer photos reveal. My room didn't have a/c (but did have an adequate fan) as well so I would get woken up by the call to prayer early morning.
The walk from the hotel to Herod's Gate is about 10-15 minutes by foot and about 30 minutes to the nightlife district in the city center (only minutes away by taxi however). The Wadi El-joz neighborhood is fine but lacks any visible dining options (although there are many small markets to purchase water, etc.). The hotel is very convenient to the Mount of Olives attractions and the Valley of Jehoshaphat.
Overall I thought it was a good place to stay and a great value for those not insistant on being located in the Old City or very close to dining choices.
