Stayed here for three nights as part of a Solidarity Mission. I tend to choose less expensive hotels than this, but since it was where our group was based it was convenient.
We didn't really spend all that much time in the hotel since we left right after breakfast every day and got back for a fairly late dinner. The room was comfortable and clean, the bathroom luxurious with both a shower and a tub. The climate control and TV worked fine though it would have been nice to have CNN and not just Fox News.
The dinners we were served were excellent. Breakfast was a little disappointing -- I am used to Israeli hotels having a bigger spread, and waiters for coffee were sometimes hard to flag down.
The last night of the mission I decided to skip the dinner off premises and order room service. Although they have both a meat and dairy room service menu, when I called I was told that they were only serving dairy. I must admit that the pizza was good, however. The printed prices are shockingly high but if you charge it to your hotel bill the VAT comes off so that knocks it down by 18%.
Location is withing a reasonable walk to both Jaffa Gate and the Ben Yehuda pedestrian mall so it's very convenient.
I don't think I would stay here again if travelling independently but for a group it's a good choice.
