I stayed at the Lev Yerushalayim for a week in November of 2007. For the price of $66 per night it was a bargain, considering the location has got to the best for Jerusalem. You could literally walk anywhere around town like Ben Yehuda St, Jaffa St, the shook, Mea Shearim and/or literally, a light 15 to 20 minute walk to the old city and the kotel.
I had a two room suite. The bed was ok, not great, but I had no problems with it. The bathroom was roomy enough. I had a dinette, a sink and a fridge in the living room area. The breakfast, which is included, was ample and better than most for quality and quantity.
The service was friendly, if limited. They did have problems finding my reservation and when I asked for a bar of soap I was told no, they don't supply bar soap. Other than that, I will stay here again, and I have no reservations about recommending this hotel to anyone.

My husband, dad and I all stayed at this hotel for a week. Let me start by saying that this hotel has the best location. Its name says it all "heart of Jerusalem". You are close to streets like Ben Yehuda, Jaffa and its so close to the old city you can walk (20min). The location is the only great thing I can say about the hotel. I felt as if the hotel justified all that it lacked because of its great location. The beds were terrible and if you have back problems stay some where else. They have their own definition of what 2 bedrooms are. A bedroom with a bed, an entrance hall with a pull out couch and a kitchen/living room with pullout couch classified to them as a 2 bedroom hotel. We were not the only people who experienced this.
The hotel is 30 years old and parts of it looked like it has not been renovated since.
If you think that you are spending $100 on a nice hotel you are wrong, you are spending $100 on location.
If you search online you can get cheaper prices.

A very good value plus a great location. Walk downstairs and across the street for many restaurants and bakeries. Easily walkable to shopping and Old City.

Not very fashionable but clean and nice units. If you Google this hotel, it will bring up rental agents that sub-let owned units for quite a bit lower than the hotel directly. Beware the "penthouse" units are nothing more than multi-bedroom units without any balcony, etc.

The hotel is Kosher so the supplied silver and plates come in separate bags for dairy and meat. The separation must be maintained as well as what you put in the fridge. Baggage drop off on arrival is a bit of a pain (although good for security). Departure is easier since hotel will help. (The staff at the desk and housekeeping and maintenance was very helpful)

If driving, you need to arrive in the back and park on the street or an adjacent lot (not cheap) and get your luggage across the plaza (wheels very desirable)

We had a Eldan rental and dropped the luggage and then the car at the nearby lot. No need at all for a car in Jerusalem. Plenty of cabs always around (including very reasonable fixed rates to the airport or Tel Aviv)

First the good: Great location for general, non-specific tourism, in the heart of the Ben Yehudah business district in the New City. However, its accessibility leaves alot to be desired (see more below). The rooms were spacious, I know of no other places in Jerusalem where it is possible to get suites that large for the price ($92.00 during peak Winter season). The staff was helpful and responsive.

But--the amenities were very poor, and the place was generally slightly run-down--no Kleenex, no hand-towels, the soap dispenser was literally glued on to the wall and kept falling off, no radio or clock, although the room had a decent kitchenette, the hotel charges 30 SH (about $7.00) to rent plates and silverware! The breakfast was very mediocre, the coffee machine was broken the entire time except one day. (There is, however, a wonderful bakery that serves breakfast just down the stairs)

If you have a car, there is no place to pull up or park nearby (We didn't have one). Just to get a cab, you have to hike with your luggage several hundred feet. And the hotel seems to be inaccessable to the handicapped.

Place has potential but needs some improvements. If you can afford it, stay elsewhere but if budget is a prime consideration and you don't mind hiking up flights of stairs constantly to get in and out, it's OK.

Great for families with babies as there is a separate living room to be in whilst the baby is sleeping. However, the hotel is dirty. I would only stay again if it was cleaned up properly.
