This is a must stay hotel. Sam the owner..fantastic as well Yvonna..front desk. Breakfast very good..they all treat you like a king. Don't forget to change $$$ to tip people..room and breakfast guys. Hotel close to Herod Gate...10 min walk to Damascus gate..as well Bus station..nr.231 to Bethleem..6.80 shekels one way and tram..to go to the market...People are fantastic everywhere...don't be afraid to stop and ask..they all guide you with love. Across from the hotel is the Istambul restaurant the owner's name is Sammer...nice fellow took very good care of us. Enjoy every moment in the city. You can walk everywhere and feel safe. You are safe everywhere. No one harrases you. Just stay alert as you will in your own country. Taxis...very expensive..everywher....you can make an agrement..or use the meter.. Tram..buses..everywhere..no problems. Whish you all a fantastic journey to the Holy Land. May GOD Bless us all!!

Cheap in price and quality; Close to Old Jerusalem

Posted May 26, 2017
The hotel has not been renovated forever. Really old. Booked it for $47 and did not care to indicate that 2 people will be staying. Next day while checking out, we were asked to pay additional $50 because my wife was also traveling with me. Funny thing is that we tried to extend the stay and looked up it on Expedia and it was not available when we selected 2 people. However, when we searched for 1 person, it was available. It seems it's their business model to allow 1 person booking and then doubling the rate at checkout if 2nd person stayed. Front desk personnel was great, especially Nirvana. It is in a walking distance (5-7 minutes) from Old Jerusalem.

Nice hotel close to the old city.

Posted May 23, 2017
Pros: Location, breakfast, staff, restaurant.
Cons: Neighborhood
Location: Old City of Jerusalem
The staff was helpful especially Nirvana, the front desk clerk, who went over and above to serve us. The breakfast was fantastic. It's location near the Damascus Gate was very nice. The hotel's location is the only thing that is a detractor, yet we never felt threatened or afraid.

Nirvana what a lovely girl!!

The hotel is not the best in comfort but you get what you pay for. It is very close to the most important place in Jerusalem and they have got an excellent receptionist that tries to help with all your demands. just the issue that I got and it's no hotels fault was that the sherut driver to take us to the airport was absolutely rude,shouting everyone no even in English and driving like crazy, was really scared this moment for everyone and he didn't care to get out to the car to help us with the luggage it was a complete mess, I recommended the hotel to no contact this guy for the tourists as he is not professional in his job.

Nice place Excellent breakfast Nice view on the top (breakfast floor) Close of the old city and walking distance (20 min) to the Zion square Easy access to transportation I just suggest to review the bathroom smell like a carbon or cigarette

Nicest hotel staff possible

Posted Mar 24, 2017
The National Hotel's desk staff were among the friendliest I have ever encountered. That means so much when it's your first day in a strange new country. Add to that the comfy room and the plentiful free breakfast, and the National gets a highest possible rating from me.

Really liked it.

Great location for seeing the old city. Price was very reasonable. I would stay there again. Staff is great. Beds were a little hard. You should know the difference between East and West Jerusalem before you book a hotel since this hotel is in East Jerusalem, which is where I wanted to stay. It can be a little noise at night from the street.
