It was... OK!

I expected more after reading the feedback, but didn't find anything worth all the hype around this hotel. Room was clean and comfy, yes, but so many things could be better - even silly things like if you put a coffee maker in the room, why put it unplugged on a table with no AC sockets nearby? Staff was ok and responsive (notice how I avoid writing pleasant/nice). Breakfast was... ok. Nothing special, aside for bacon which you can't find in Kosher hotels. Plus side is that we had plenty of parking space, maybe the occupancy was low due to Corona and lack of tourists.

5/5 Excellent

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

Its an oasis in the middle of a hectic and alive part of Jerusalem, not a cheap oasis but definitely a good one. The food is fabulous, the room was unique and comfortable and the staff were exceptional. Didn't like that our room had absolutely no view.

  • Disliked: Staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Not up to 5-star standards; not even close

This hotel is not up to the quality standards of a five star hotel. The furniture was dated and unclean, and the service was awful (they don't even have a real concierge). The staff was so rude and inattentive that it was almost comical. Breakfast was in what felt like a cafeteria, not a dining room.
