This hotel is situated in the heart of the newer portion of Jerusalem. It is next to the Great Synagogue of Jerusalem, diagonally across from the Conservative Center and close to the Reform Synagogue. It is not far from the Government Buildings and about a 15 minute walk to the Old City. The Prime Minister’s and President’s homes are just around the corner. None of that is the real reason to stay at Prima Kings.
The real reason is the people who work at the Prima Kings Hotel. It is not luxurious; in fact it is typical of most big city hotels. The rooms tend to be well appointed but on the small side. The amenities are basic to most big city hotels. But, the people are unique in their desire to make your stay one of ease and pleasure.
My wife and I arrived at the hotel at 9 a.m. on a Saturday morning after a 3 hour drive from the heart of the Negev desert. We had not eaten a real meal (energy bars for dinner) since the prior noon and we were tired and dusty. Since we had reserved a handicap room (they only had one) we were told by Nasser at the front desk that the current occupants were still in the room. He offered us breakfast at their morning buffet table where we met Ottoman, a server. Nasser personally took our luggage from our car and put it in storage. After breakfast we left for the Old City and some touring. We returned at 3 p.m. to find out that the people in our reserved room would not leave until after sundown (7:30 p.m.). Nasser immediately arranged for another room on the same floor for us to use to shower and rest. At about 8:30 p.m. a bell man came to our temporary room to move us into our room. The room was larger to accommodate a wheel chair and had a walk-in shower. It was perfect for our needs for the 4 nights we were staying at the Prima Kings.
Whatever we needed both Nasser and Ottoman and other staff members whose names I do not remember were there to help. The lobby was undergoing a major renovation that left only the revolving door available for egress. They put boards down so that I could get my handicap scooter out through a regular door in the area they were renovation whenever I came or went. They moved materials for the renovations off the ramp to enable me to drive my scooter up and into the lobby. On one occasion the morning desk manager personally teamed up with another employee to carry my scooter (112 lbs.) down a short flight of stairs and out a side exit because they could not get me out the front door. They then drove the scooter around to the front. In other words, every employee we came in contact with was not just pleasant but went out of their way to make things as pleasant as they could. We stayed in 9 hotels during our trip to Israel and although this was not the fanciest or the prettiest, it was the best by far.
