This is a beautifully run hotel, with tasteful decor, comfortable rooms, and helpful staff. Breakfast was very nice, with many less common choices (figs, dates, nuts, variety of breads and rolls). There was a plate of fresh fruit and a bottle of water waiting for me in my room, which I enjoyed. And the wifi actually worked (!). The hotel is in walking distance to the Old City...you will walk through a bustling Arab neighborhood shopping district. I found this interesting and a nice counterpoint to my other Jerusalem experiences. However, this is not a neighborhood for restaurants or nightlife, so be prepared to walk a lot, or take cabs to other parts of the city. To avoid this necessity, I ate in the hotel's restaurant, which was fine, though the menu was surprisingly American (pizza, oriental chicken salad, pasta). The lamb kabob and the pita bread were very good. Unlike another reviewer, I did not notice any unusual amount of noise, day or night. The neighborhood mostly closes down after around 8 PM.
