For Business Travel Say No....just no.
Posted Sep 19, 2016 on Hotels
This is a perfectly adequate hotel for tour bus groups, of which there are many that pass through - but for the average business traveler, it is simply too loud (at all hours of the night), too uncomfortable (the room was disgusting, the bed uncomfortable and unclean), and not worth the price paid. Breakfast, when there are many groups in town, is quite good with lots of variety - on any other day, sadly, you can expect boiled eggs and yogurt, with some chopped up vegetables and not much else. Biggest complaint was the hotel service, though. There were rude, gruff, and put out when asked a question (with one exception, there was one absolutely delightful young man at the front desk out of the dozen or so that work there).
ON BUSINESS TRAVEL - For the same price, stay at the Crowne Plaza, Jerusalem Ambassador, or Leonardo Plaza.
ON LEISURE - the hotel does make it very easy to book day tours through a local company via the hotel website. highly recommend egged tours / Ben Harim tours
