The hotel is in a great location in walking distance from Old Jerusalem, right off the main Jaffa street. The only thing slightly inconvenient about this hotel is having to carry my luggage up two flights of stairs.
"Excellent except for smell of smoke"

When I walked into the room, the smell of smoke was so pungent it almost made me sick. They did change my room but there was still a smell of smoke, just not as bad. When I asked why there was a smell of smoke in a non smoking room, I was told that there was no way to control it. How do other hotels control it? I think that many Israeli army soldiers stay there and they do not penalize them for smoking in the room. Other than the smell the room was immaculate

Not too bad for the Price! Location is a few steps away from Herod's Gate of the Old Jerusalem, Damascus gate and the colorful marketplace. Walking distance to Via Dolorosa, Virgin Mary's Birthplace (Lion's Gate) and out to the Garden of Gethsemane and Virgin Mary's tomb, and the Holy Sepulcher (Golgotha is inside the Holy Sepulcher which is less than 20 min away. Tip: Yo avoid CROWDS, go early (0800 or at 1900) if you want to go to The Holy Sepulcher itself or Mary's Tomb. Buying Icons? Bargain down as much as 1/4!.... Enjoy!!!!!
