Great location to Old City
Posted Apr 4, 2016
Important: If you are renting a car in Israel, DO NOT TAKE IT TO JERUSALEM. It is extremely difficult to find a place to park, especially if you don't read Hebrew. If you are planning on staying more than 2 days, return your rental car first. It will just sit in a parking garage while you are there.
If you are looking for the "Old City Feel," this is the place for you. The apartments were quaint, stocked with a mini-fridge and TV with Jerusalem channels. The staff is extremely helpful. We were able to use the laundry facilities. The soap compartment was caked with soap which was gross. The whole building constantly smells like gifelte fish and hummus.
Breakfast was ok, very Israeli. We enjoyed croissants and yogurt most days. If you don't like traditional Israeli food, prepare yourself for carb overload.
For Jewish people looking for a great place to spend Shabbat, look no further. From what I could see, Lev took care of all your potential needs. Now if you are not Jewish, get your food no later than 2:00 pm on Saturday because everything else is TOTALLY shut down.
Overall, everything felt very old, but I am told that is how almost every place in Jerusalem is.
