Nice hotel within walking distance to Old City
Posted Dec 10, 2016
We stayed at this hotel during what is considered the off season, but the hotel was quite busy. We ended up on the 8th floor which has balconies. We did open the door to the balcony to get fresh, cool air. As nearly as we could tell, the hotel does not have air-conditioned rooms. Our room overlooked one of the main streets in Jerusalem so with balcony door open, it was quite noisy, but the noise was not bad with the door closed. The room was of nice size and the bed quite comfortable.
The breakfast buffet is quite nice with many options, typical of an Israeli hotel. We did not pay for breakfast when we made our reservation, thinking that we could explore options close to the hotel. That was a mistake. We should have included breakfast as part of the reservation. The closest place to have breakfast is by Damascus gate and that would have had, at best, coffee and a pastry.
Staff at the hotel were courteous and helpful. The property is not new, but reasonably well-maintained.
