“So much promise, so little fulfilment”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 March 2012

Little House has a superb location, great breakfasts, lovely staff, clean and comfortable rooms....BUT....One of the reasons, an important one, for choosing LHITC was that it offered Internet Access in all the rooms. THIS WAS NOT FORTHCOMING! When I asked the Staff the reply was "We're working on it!" yet the Staff Internet and the computer in the lounge seemed to be fine. THIS IS NOT ACCEPTABLE! The lack of a promised and expected service is only made worse by the Staff dissembling about its absence.
Were it not for this MAJOR ANNOYANCE I would have rated LHITC much higher. As it is this was enough to spoil an otherwise enjoyable stay!

Room Tip: Insist that LHITC keep its advertised promise of Free Internet in all the rooms!

My title says it all! Feels like coming home (except my stair carpet is cleaner!). Very adequate room, not nice toiletries (I bring my own), but these seem to be standard now in Israel, even at the supposed 5 star Dan at Ein Bokek. Clean towels every day, great shakshuka, I'll be back, thanks.

Room Tip: ask for what you need, they let me in before 2pm, very welcome as I'd arrived on the night fligh...

For those who don't necessarily need the big hotel with the big lobby, facilities and the anonymous feel that comes along with it, A Little House in the Colony offers a wonderful alternative. The location is wonderful - the German Colony is one of the most charming neighbourhoods in Jerusalem and is about 20 minute walk from Jaffa gate, through the charming Yemin Moshe. The staff is wonderful, the rooms comfortable and clean and the breakfast keeps you going for hours. I'll definitely come back when revisiting Jerusalem. Note that parking on the street is not free, but parking on the nearby Beth Lehem Street is free and for the most part available.

The location can't be beat.
The staff was very kind and accommodating. The room, though not large, was well planned out, with sufficient space for luggage, for unpacking, with a desk and chair as well as a very comfortable bed, and small, though tidy private bath.
Take advantage of their generous complementary breakfast. And their extended hours let you sleep late and still awake to a wide selection of foods and a selection of newspapers, while you plan your day.
The heat or Air Conditioning is individually controlled, which is great. If you don't have a Celcius table, remember that 21 C equals 70 F. Otherwise, you'll cook yourself silly ! There's computer access in every room. (That's how I googled what level of heat I needed.)
The staff will offer as much or more help than you'd get at a large hotel.
And the room price will leave money in your pocket for shopping in the delightful boutiques of the German Colony or touring the wondrous city of Jerusalem.

Room Tip: On weekends, if you need quiet, ask for a rear room. The German Colony is lively a fun, but can be a...
