I have stayed several times at the Jerusalem Hotel, and the mainstay of the whole experience has been the Palestinian family run element of the hotel , who always go out of their way to assist you. However since my last stay pre-pandemic, they have gone further and completely overhauled all the bedrooms, en suite facilities, and renovated the dining area , all in excellent taste and style - but still keeping the family owned atmosphere. They have also upgraded their restaurant meal options in terms of quality and presentation. It was a real pleasure to be back again , and would highly recommend for those who want to feel that local atmosphere. Thank you to all at The Jerusalem Hotel. Gerard ( Heelan )

A last second change in my well planned visit to Jerusalem brought me to this exquisite little hotel easily missed from the street. Located a block away from the Damascus Gate, the Jerusalem Hotel has a long history as it was a Police station a while back and even further back , a Byzantine Church! The interior whispers loudly these confirmations with high ceilings, stone walls and arched doorways. The hospitality given by the proprietors of the hotel make you feel like your a distant family member more than a guest. The restaurant has a slight more modern ambiance with an amazing menu with an Arab influence. Rooms are incredibly affordable for what you receive in setting and character.

My mom and I stayed here for 2 nights while visiting Bethlehem and Jerusalem. The ambiance is charming and authentic decorated with antiques. We were in a ‘cozy twin’ which was small, but there are spacious and lovely , cool lounge areas outside the rooms which we took advantage of to relax, read, and have a coffee. The breakfast was simple but very nice. Dinner in the garden restaurant was great and our tour guide told us it is a favourite of his and popular with locals. Great experience, will definitely come back.

For those who seek a memorable experience when traveling, this historic hotel offers quiet seclusion steps from the Damascus Gate, with a lovely enclosed garden on one side and a spectacular view of the Old City on the other. The building is beautifully arranged with artwork and antique pieces. There are places to rest and beautiful things to look at everywhere. The owner and his family made us feel at home with their friendliness and kind hospitality. The attached restaurant offers a good breakfast with very good coffee, and the dinner menu is outstanding, with a variety of selections. If I lived in Jerusalem I would visit the restaurant regularly. Even our child who eats very few things remarked, “They have something delicious for each meal here.” Our room looked like it belonged to an earlier era, only with fluffy white linens and a modern en suite bathroom. (Our teen praised the shower especially.) There were many outlets all around the room, a universal adapter, adjustable air conditioning, and in-room coffee and tea. A door led to a balcony overlooking the garden, with a table and chairs that we made great use of. I will be recommending this magical place to all my friends and family.
