Located approx 800 metres North of Herod`s Gate in the old Jerusalem Wall, this hotel provides an impressive frontage and reception area. On the other hand, the bedroom was rather average whilst the en-suite, whilst providing all the usual facilities, was rather cramped in size and in need of refurbishment. It appears that the hotel concentrates on providing for tour groups which reflected particularly in the standard of catering for the breakfast and dinner buffets. For the latter a wide selection of salad dishes was provided but this was accompanied with a rather poor offering of meat dishes which with the table layout reduced the restaurant to being reminiscent of the old department store canteens.
Regrettably service was also very patchy. The maitre de` and one lounge barman provided a good level of service, but it was necessary to ask reception for attention to the room fridge and to replace a chipped cup three times before a response was forthcoming. Also a simple request for a portion of the ubiquitous falafel to accompany a salad for lunch was apparently quite beyond the hotel`s capabilities as "it was not on the menu"!
