On arrival at the hotel, the street outside is covered with litter, however this is a problem right throughout Jerusalem
Staff are very friendly, speak good english
Major construction work going on at the hotel when we arrived
No fridge or Tea/coffee making facilities in the room
Electrical sockets were hanging on the wall looking dangerous
Tv had lots of channels but not many english.
The bathroom tiles were not finished off to a professional level and the paintwork was slightly dirty and in need of a coat of paint. Hot and cold water was good and towels were replaced daily. When next door neighbours used the water or toilet the noise from their system refilling was desperate and made it impossible to sleep.
The air-conditioning is a bit noisy, and the noise from next door neigbours doors sqeeking and banging when opening and closing was unreasonable too. Neighbours talking can be heard next door and in the hallway outside too, this could easily be resolved by putting up a few notices asking people to be quiet from say 10.00pm to 8.00am,
Beds were reasonably comfortable, bed linen was changed daily.
Breakfast was very good with lots of salad, cereal, tea/coffees, fruit and yoghurts.
There are no extra facilities at the hotel, no bar or lounge area.
Wifi is reasonably good, although it didnt work on our 1st day. The manager was very helpful in trying to resolve this and it was fixed next day.
