As with other reviewers we have just returned from a McCabe pilgrimage and the Golden Walls was our base for six nights. Whilst it is amid the bustle of Arab Jerusalem it is immediately opposite the Old City and is perfectly placed for all the religious and secular attractions. The public rooms are on the first floor above the shops and are all well appointed and furnished. The food was varied and excellent, self service at both breakfast and dinner meaning that you could sample everything. A very busy dining room but never any queueing. Staff very efficient. Minimal wine list but the red Cremasan from Bethlehem was excellent at £10 a bottle. Local Taybeh beer quite acceptable but £3.30 for a small bottle. We had a first floor room (immediately behind the bar) which faced the city walls and was quiet and fairly spacious. Minimal curtains which might have been a problem in summer. It was wet and cold while we were there (snow on one occasion) but the free standing electric heater in the room coped well and was ideal for drying wet clothes ! Others in the group had rooms at the back but no one complained although those close to the mosque minaret did moan about the early morning calls to prayer. If we return to Jerusalem independently, which we do plan to do then we will definitely stay at the Golden Walls again. Another reviewer says 'if EasyJet start flying to Tel Aviv' - they already do - daily from Luton.
