We've stayed here for 2 nights, but we regret we didn't find this hotel earlier. This hotel has everything what low-budget travellers need, who just want a good and nice place to sleep situated at a good location. This is not a "classic" backpacker hotel, with a crowdy central lobby.
The rooms are small, but clean, including the bathroom. Our room had airconditioning, cable television on flat screen and had a very small balcony. Who needs a large room anyway, when doing sightseeing all day? The old city of Jerusalem is only a 10 minutes walk, from the hotel. The owner is very friendly and helpfull. The hotel is situated at Havatzelet, just arround the corner from Jaffa Road. There is no breakfast service, but some very good Israelian breakfast is available at different bread- and coffee shops at Ben Jehuda Street and Jaffa Road. The coffee at the hotel is for free.
The location of the hotel is just outside the old town of Jerusalem. Just folow Jaffa Road and you'll end up at the Jaffa Gate. After a sightseeing day it is nice to relax in the neighborhood of the hotel. Less tourists, good places to eat and drink (happy hours for beer), near Zion Sqaure and Ben Jehudastreet.
Nearby the hotel, several busses will stop and they will bring you to the different parts of Jerusalem, including to the central bus station for busses to other destinations like the Death Sea. Shuttle service will stop near by several times a day (and night) to bring you to Tel Aviv or Ben Gurion Airport.
This hotel is highly recommended!
