My husband and I spent five nights at this hotel. It was located near the Damascus Gate of the Old City. Our room was very roomy with two double beds, sitting area and large bathroom. It had the fell of the past and yet had the modern tv. The breakfast buffet was delicious. The staff went out of their way...

On a human rights tour and stayed, whenever possible, at the Jerusalem Hotel. It is a Palestinian style-- hospitality, warmth, and comfort. A great restaurant is the ideal place to meet friends and talk. Everyone is friendly. The rooms are clean and the beds lush and comfy. I felt I was sleeping in a elegant ancient Arabic queen's room.

We stayed at the Jerusalem Hotel for 5 nights. The location near the Damascus Gate was great for seeing the old city, and we didn’t even mind walking from the hotel to the trendy areas of the new city. The unassuming exterior is actually a 145-year-old building that used to be a mansion, so keep in mind that the 60-year-old...

Arriving at the Jerusalem Hotel at 2.00am after a redeye flight from Cyprus, we thought we'd made a terrible mistake. It was unlit, hard to find, and in a drab back street of east Jerusalem with the B-team in charge on the night desk. By daylight it was a different story - and the staff at JRH were helpful and...

This hotel is located in East Jerusalem across from the Damascus Gate. This places it in the middle of the Muslim Quarter of the Old City. This area is not safe particularly for Jews and tourists from the West. The entrance to the Muslim Quarter is safe guarded by IDF soldiers when entering from the Jewish Quarter and their are...

The hotel is located in the center of Jerusalem. We are a couple of minutes from Damascus Gate, very close to the majority of the tourist sites including the Holy Sepulcher, Via deLaRosa the Garden Tomb and others. Of the prominent institutions in our area, with links with the world, and that attracts lots of Pilgrims to the city, the...

We ate here on a Friday night. Ordered the hummus (NIS 18) appetizer, it was nondescript and forgettable. Ordered the mixed grill as I had a craving for some mixed grill. For NIS 89 I expected a lot more in both quality and quantity. The chicken and the minced meat kebabs were average, the lamb was decent but not quite...

Just the best place to stay in Jerusalem - brilliantly convenient for the Old City and all else especially West Bank sites. Full of character and charm. Don't expect 5-star, chain hotel add-ons: it's not about that. (If you like Hilton and Best Western, stay away!). I always stay in Arab East Jerusalem - generally I find the West (Israeli)...

We stayed in this wonderful place for two nights in early March 2014 while touring Jerusalem. The location is wonderful for a tourist because it is just three short blocks to the Damascus Gate. It is easy to go into the old city for even short excursions and return several times a day if you wish to rest. The building...

I really liked this place. It's such a cool and unique hotel. There are shared sitting rooms throughout and it's a cute little castle-looking hotel. The rooms are amazing. There are a few reasons I didn't give it 5 stars. One, the bathroom (in my room at least) was so narrow that I could barely use the toilet and I'm...
