It's a very nice but very simple hotel. Perfect if you just want somewhere affordable, clean, and simple to sleep at night during trips to Jerusalem.

Great location

Posted Jul 7, 2014
Pros: Great location
Cons: Inconsistent staff at desk. Some great.
Noisy area but fine if you are not a light sleeper. Relatively inexpensive and in a super location.

Cannot beat this location!

Posted Jul 5, 2014
For those who don't mind a bit of noise late at night (hotel is surrounded by bars and caf├ęs in downtown Jerusalem, this place is ideal, esp. for those younger travelers on a budget. The place has has such a charming feel; I loved how I could open the windows and listen to the sounds of the city. No elevator though, which may be a deal-breaker for some. Free wifi in lobby, breakfast and coffee/tea provided. The staff were helpful and friendly. Room was clean. Would stay here again on future visit, no doubt.

Good place to stay in centre of Jerusalem

Posted Jun 24, 2014
Pros: Location, clean and spacious room, polite staff.
Cons: The windows could be a bit more sound proof.
The hotel itself is located in the centre of Jerusalem, near Jaffa Street and a station of light rail that connects it with Central Bus Station, Old City, and Arab Bus Station near Damascus Gate. There are many shops and restaurants in the area, and the Old City can be reached on foot in reasonable time. Our room was clean and spacious, so was the bathroom, the hotel staff was kind and helpful and spoke excellent English. WiFi worked fine in our room. Our room was equipped with a fridge and air conditioning. We did not try the breakfast as we left early everyday, but from what we saw in the day of our arrival the selection of food was good. Please note though that the area might be a bit noisy in the night, due to number of clubs, bars and restaurants. However, we solved this small issue with earplugs. We enjoyed our stay there and we can recommend this hostel.

Not new, but outstanding

Good hotel for it's price. I was there only 2 nights. This hotel is located in the heart of the Jerusalem. You may find everything in the surroundings even during Shabbat. Clean hotel, not new, but comfortable. Staff was very helpful. There were no problems with my stay in this hotel. Free coffee, tea, Wi-Fi etc., in cosy nook at "Your old granny's home" - styled reception.

Convenient

Friendly staff - plan on staying again in the future - great price in comparison to other hotels - security - nice breakfast - A/C not great. Noise from being downtown hotel in the mix of young who like to party into 3 AM.

The location of the hotel was perfect, but the hotel itself could use a great renovation and thorough clean. It didn't look like our bathroom had been cleaned in a while which made me question the cleanliness the of bed. It was the cheapest hotel we could find for a convenient location, but it was definitely the dirtiest hotel I've ever stayed in. The hotel staff was very helpful though.

Good location

Posted May 18, 2014 on Hotels.com
Stay was fine, as echoed in previous comments it is in a run down condition, but you would argue that this is reflected in its relative price position to other hotels in the area. A good breakfast. Area is noisy at night, but Israel operates a later evening lifestyle anyway so embrace that!

Reasonable budget hotel

Posted May 4, 2014 on Hotels.com
Zion is located close to Jaffa Gate, so it's great location wise. However the rooms are very basic and unclean. It was okay for a budget hotel. Wouldn't recommend to stay for a longer period of time.

Good location, but very noisy in surrounding area. Staff friendly and helpful. Breakfast needs a little more variety.
