Pros: location, clean.
Cons: better windows to sound proof the room a little better. the bathroom had a foul odor even before we used it. maybe its a sewar problem.
Location: near Ben Yehuda street, Jaffa street, and about 10 minute walk to the shuk.
Although rooms are small, and can be somewhat noisy outside - this is one of the cheaper options you are going to get at this prime location. Location is right near town and minutes away from the shuk. You are a block away from the light rail as well.. perhaps they can add more channels to the TV. channels are very limited and mainly in hebrew.

Very central to the modern city.Posted Oct 16, 2013
Pros: Ease of access to commercial and business properties.
Cons: There was no lift, which made it more difficult for elderly visitors with heavy suitcases.
Location: Close to Mehane Yehuda market, Ben Yehuda shopping precinct and shops.
This is a small hotel, modest but clean and the staff very friendly.

2 nights in JerusalemPosted May 20, 2013
Pros: Lots of TV channels, refreshments (including beer and wine) at the reception desk.
Cons: They should probably start considering more serious renovations.
Location: Mahane Yehuda market is steps away.
Pretty bare bones, but for the price, it's hard to argue. If you get a room facing the plaza it will be loud (but cheerful). One big minus was that our bathroom had a funky odor. Walls are also a bit thin, so we heard or neighbor's crying baby for most of our stay. Overall ok place, in a good neighborhood, and leeps you out of the hotel and roaming around, which is what you should be doing if you are visiting Jerusalem for the first time.

You Are Paying for the LocationPosted May 14, 2013 on Hotels.com
The Palatin was my home base during my most recent visit to Israel. When you visit Jerusalem and stay at the Palatin, you are really paying for the location. The prices are cheap compared to many other options in the area, but you get what you pay for. The breakfast left quite a bit to be desired and the maid service was not very thorough. You also get small rooms (we had a renovated one away from the main square and had no issues with noise or excessive wear that I read in other reviews). Overall, it was fine for what we needed. Not great, but not horrible.

not recommended place to stayPosted Mar 27, 2013 on Hotels.com
is one of the dirtiest and uncomfortable hotel to stay in,very small bathroom and showerspace,it need to replace the entire hotel or it is just good for 1 day transient hotel,i will not recommend this place for longterm travellers,although rosa was very helpful in accomodating us,no elevator,honestly speaking it is a 1 star hotel.
3 night stay in JerusalemPosted Jan 22, 2013 on Hotels.com
Very convenient location. Room very small but clean. Noisy at night because of the location. No elevator. Everyone working there was nice. Breakfast very good.
