“Great Experience”
Reviewed 26 May 2014

Not only is the Grand Court in Jerusalem a great and convenient place to stay but, it was the staff that captured my attention. The Sous Chef Firas Abu Elhawa made our experience and stay the most memorable. He welcomed us, embraced us and made us feel at home. He actually drove me and my three comrades to the Mt. of Olives at night to get a panoramic view of the city. We consider him, our new friend. Never have we gone anywhere and experienced such friendly and personal service. I highly recommend the Grand Court, it is now our place to stay whenever we are in Jerusalem.

Grand Court Jerusalem has become my second home. By far my favorite hotel in Israel! Very friendly staff, good service, elevators fast, the coffee shop managed by Tareq serve the best coffee and by far this hotel has the best food! The main Chef Firas Abulhawa takes so much joy in his cooking, serving and presentation of all the meals! My groups always comment on the outstanding food! Eat by far too much!

Love and appreciate all the staff and looking forward to my next stay at my Jerusalem Home!

During our trip to Israel we stayed at the Grand Court Hotel in Jerusalem for 3 days. It is a beautiful Hotel and we were very satisfied with our stay. The food in the Dining Room was excellent! Staff was very helpful and friendly. The hotel is close to any site seeing you may want to do in Jerusalem. I would definitely choose to stay there again!

I am here now at the hotel. It's hard to give a good review when I just came from a Swissotel in Turkey.
The air conditioning is unbearable, it shoots direct to your face,I am praying to don't get sick.
The triple room is a joke.
The room and the bathroom are old.

The grand court is an ideal location to stay in Jerusalem The rooms are big and clean. The location is great as it is a short walk to the old City and even to Ben Judah street the main walking street and shopping centre. The break-fast was huge with a large selection of food except on the Sabbath where only cold food was available. Most of the staff were friendly. The security personal were also friendly. I was most impressed by the curtsy extended by the sous chef Firas Abu elhawa . His friendliness made the Hotel a home away from home. I travel extensively around the world and have been doing so since 1983 and without hesitation could say Firas has no parallel when it comes to friendliness expressed by Hotel personnel . Thanks Firas you did your Hotel proud. The only negative was the trouble I had with the room door keys. Jay from Australia
