Location: excellent, very close to the old town, Damascus Gate (about 5 mins. on foot; some cheap eateries with falafel and shawarma close by). Seemed safe to walk at night.
Check in/out fast and efficient. You get a complimentary welcome drink voucher that you can use in the adjacent restaurant, for beverage and even glass of wine.
Wifi: Good
Hotel building: beautiful, old Arab mansion.
Rooms: Have a lot of charm, but do not expect luxury. We had a room with three beds; it was a bit crammed and we had little space for the suitcases. One bed was very creaky and whenever the person sleeping in it turned, the other woke up. Tea/coffee making facility, with paper cups. No fridge or safe. View from room was onto and into the restaurant.
Bathroom: Small und a bit uninviting but clean. Complimentary shampoo, shower gel and body milk. Shower was a bit cramped and the overhead rain shower was leaky, so if you did not want to wash your hair, it was complicated.
Breakfast: friendly staff; fine, with buffet and some delicious dishes (including cappuccino and omelet, if ordered) – but when dishes ran out, they were not refilled or it took a very very long time.
Parking: is arranged for free in a parking lot about a minute away. Just ask at the reception. There is space to unload suitcases right in front of hotel.
We could leave our luggage after checkout.
150 E/ night was pricy (wouldn’t call it value for money) but everything in Israel is expensive. With some changes (leaky shower head, creaky bed, introduction of a safe in the room), this hotel could be great.

If you want to experience the true meaning of "home away from home", then this is your place. Recently visited the hotel for the second time. The location is a 3 minutes walk to the Old City with all what it has to offer. The renovated authentic Palestinian hotel turned home boasts quite a collection of antique and vintage items that adorn the hallways and the rooms. From the famous Palestinian cross stitch embroidered runners to the intricate wood work with the verses of poetry on top of the doors to the old thob etc, all add to charm of the place. The friendly staff at the reception desk, restaurant and house keeping spare no effort to make your stay comfortable. I raise my hat to each and everyone and look forward to visiting with you again. Thank you all!

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.

What a beautiful hotel to stay. The staff are super friendly, the food in the restaurant is really tasty (I recommend the Palestinian dish of the day). It's a bit pricey but it's Jerusalem... room was really clean. My only thing was that the towels were quite thin and always seemed a bit damp... and the tea / coffee / cups weren't replaced by the cleaner.
I really enjoyed the breakfast - note the coffee machine isn't great but the guy upstairs will make you a good coffee if you ask :) (or tea if you want it!)
Was just such a lovely stay we actually ended up staying an extra night!!

I really wanted to like this place after reading all the great reviews here but came away with slightly mixed feelings.

On the plus side, it is a beautiful old building, and the location is fabulous, just a few minutes walk from the Damascus Gate (the entry into the most interesting part of the old city) and the nearby light rail stop.

My room felt a bit tired and in need of an upgrade though - a decent coffee machine and real cups rather than disposable ones would be a good start. Staff were pleasant enough but didn't go out of their way to be helpful. There's a nice airy restaurant on the ground floor, but in a country with such fabulous food pretty much everywhere you go, I thought the breakfast left a lot to be desired, and for that reason I didn't attempt any other meals here.

I was travelling alone and for a place to lay my head at night, it was perfectly fine and a reasonable price, but it wasn't a place that I wanted to linger in. If I were back in Jerusalem with my family I'd forego the atmosphere and look for something a bit more modern.

I am so glad we picked this hotel for our stay in Jerusalem! The only thing I’m sorry is we only stayed there for one night!

This is a small family run hotel, and let me tell you - they really do make you feel like a part of their family. Not in a phony way of a large hotel chain, but in a real human way. The owner and everyone who works there create a real connection.

Upon arrival, we were offered to relax and have complimentary drinks in the restaurant. This is before we checked in, or performed any other formalities. The owner personally took me to the parking lot, and even asked if I wanted him to drive his car there, so that we don’t have to walk back (it’s really just a 2 minute walk). Later we asked what time is the breakfast. The response was that we will be fed no matter what time we would come, even after the official breakfast is over.

The place is uniquely decorated, and you can feel how much love went into every detail. And the location is superb - just a 10 minute walk from the walls of the old city.

I would not stay in any other hotel in Jerusalem, and I’m looking forward to the next time in Jerusalem Hotel!

We met great hospitality, and excellent varied breakfasts; every day, we could find something new on the buffet, exciting and delicious.

We spent eight beautiful days with the children in a spotless hotel, located 3 minutes from the old town and gave a fantastic sense of security.
Thank you very much to Rober for excellent contact, for preparing a surprise for my daughter's birthday and for exceptional care for us.
Thank you, and I hope to see you.

I love this hotel. The rooms are individual and quirky with lots of Palestinian heritage touches. The staff are mega friendly and great at remembering regular guests.

The menu is reasonable and portions are large but do ask about specials, which are often for one night only.

There steps from street level to the restaurant and then to both bedroom floors so folk with mobility issues may struggle but the hotel will assist if they can

I really recommend giving the hotel a try or, at least, having a meal there

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.

This hotel is a couple of minutes walk to Damascus Gate. Jerusalem Old City is a must see if you are in the country.

My wife and I stayed for one night. The hotel staff are amazing and the owner gave us a little tour of the antiques that he had collected or were in his family.

The restaurant attached to the hotel is very good. There is a small buffet breakfast served there with fruit, eggs, dips, delicious bread. A satisfying meal to get you started before you go explore.

We would definitely stay again.

Email Shireen at hotel. She knows a few tour companies. *Do not use “Amir” with Bein Hariem Tours. He makes you look at his backpack full of maps and papers on the side of the road for HOURS and only takes you to some of the stops because he talks for 50% of the tour. He does not provide an actual tour, but rather a history of political turmoil lecture from 8 am to 5pm.

Yes, you are in a great spot. In fact, the restaurant attached to the hotel is quite inviting, with a great selection of delicious food, a mere 5 meters or so from the front door of the hotel.

There is no elevator in the hotel. The Building is an old Mansion and there is no room in the design to install one.
