Construction work causes a lot of noise every morning!! Although stated on the website, definitely not in an quiet street. The street is so short that the noise from the Saladin street is well heard. Especially at night and during Ramadan, when the whole street transforms in a party scene. The rooms are old and the whole hotel needs an...

This hotel is located near the old city. In terms of location it's excellent. But the hotel certainly needs a do up. It's very dirty; the dining hall had no air conditioning & having breakfast there was like living in an oven (we were there in July). Worse still, the shower had a shortage of cold shower supply & we...

My husband, myself and my parents stayed here for 2 nights. The location is good as it is close to the old city. We are a laid back family, HOWEVER we didn't enjoy Capitol Hotel... The hotel was awfully run down, dirty and unkept. The carpet was unvacuumed and dirty, the bathroom door handle was broken, the bathroom smelt like...

My second stay at the Capitol. The location- close to the Old City and a few minutes walk from the Damascus Gate- is unbeatable. Two bus stations are also within easy walking distance. This is the most interesting part of Jerusalem with friendly and welcoming inhabitants. The hotel is excellent value; it offers comfortable accommodation, friendly staff, a good breakfast...

This hotel is nicely located a 5 minute walk from Herod's Gate and a 8 minute walk from the Damascus gate. The area is fine and the hotel has wi-fi in the lobby which is nice. However, for the price that is charged, I was disappointed with how little the hotel rooms are taken care of. Our bathroom doorknob was...

The position is very good, in a safe area and very close to the old city. Rooms, breakfast were over my expectations (after reading other reviews). Staff was extremely kind and helpful with everything we needed. I would stay here again if I would come back to Jerusalem.
