I spent 4 nights at this hostel (which is more like a hotel). Breakfast was sufficiently varied and dinner was good as well. The hostel is situated inside the walls of Jerusalem which makes it easy to visit the holy places within and also the souk and other shopping outlets.
Nice hotel, in one of the “narrow streets of cobbled stone” that featured in Simon and Garfunkel’s dreams. Drawbacks were the unresponsive aircon/heating and the shocking breakfast. Theoretically they are Italian, the management. But that coffee - caramba! Pluses were the cellar bar and location, location, location.
I was part of pilgrimage group to the Holy Land and one day we have an included lunch at this spot. It is right inside the old city and not that far from the Holy Sepulchre church. We had lunch after 'doing' the Via Dolorosa. As the lunch was included I am not sure about the price, but the foos was good. There was salad, pasta and some meat. It was nice to have other option and not only spreads as looks to be common in Israel. For me getting pasta was a good option so I thought it was ok. Then I decided to go downstairs to buy a coffee on the bar. It was not the quickest service , just OK.
In a unique localisation between New Gate and Jaffa Gate, in the heart of yhe Christian Quarter, a christian place to stay. The building have an immense potential to become a fantastic Inn with some effort in renewing the rooms. However it has a excelent relation price/quality. Impecably clean, with employees kind and gentle.
I stayed here for four nights whilst leading a group on Pilgrimage in the Holy Land. The Casa is well situated inside the Old City. Rooms were small and fairly basic. Air con/ heating was controlled by the reception desk and involved phoning down to ask them to turn it on. It was very cold when we were staying and the heating provided was inadequate. There is a nice feel about the Casa and reception and the bar are pleasant places to sit. Food was buffet style and was average.
An unique terrace overlooking the 360 • skyline of Jerusalem, where you can taste an excellent pizza in the tradtional neapolitan style. Kind and friendly staff. Prices just a little above the average, which can be justified by the amazing location.
Our tour group had a pizza/salad/pasta buffet on the rooftop restaurant. The food was great. The service was a little slow – they couldn’t seem to make the pizzas fast enough – but that didn’t matter – as the place was wonderful with a great view of the golden dome as well as other sites in Jerusalem. Casa Nova also has a rather impressive courtyard in the middle with plants strung across the first floor level, looking like a ceiling. Quite impressive view from the upper floor looking down.
I spent 4 nights in this hotel whilst on a pilgrimage in Israel and Jordan. Situated in the heart of the Old City of Jerusalem, the hotel is situated in a very strategic location and is within walking distance from places of interest such as the the Holy Sepulchre, the Wailing Wall, the Dome of the Rock Mosque, the Tower of David and much more. The food is very genuine, rooms are spotlessly clean, the bar area is really relaxing and very well set. Staff is really friendly and helpful. The only thing is that rooms do not have TV but that's understandable since it is a pilgrim' s place. Jerusalem offers a whole wide choice of historical places to see. There is also a very large shopping area just outside her walls near Jaffa Gate. All in all, the accommodation made it easier to access everything on foot.…
I have on multiple occasions attempted to get a drink at the casa nova bar with friends, as they have a beautiful courtyard and there aren't many nice places for drinks in the Old City. 'Attempted' is the key word here, as we have failed on all three occasions. Once it was closed. The second time the bar was open but nobody was around. Although we asked at the reception and they assured us, the bartender will be with us in a minute, we left after 30 minutes without service. At the last attempt, lo and behold, there was staff present. She was typing on her phone and not paying attention to us until we walked up to her. We asked if the bar was open, the answer was yes, so we took a seat in the courtyard. But instead of taking our order, the girl just got up, changed her seats and proceeded to type on her phone... also in the courtyard... like 7m from us. She just entirely ignored us... for almost 10min. So if you ever want a drink at the Casa Nova bar, you better be prepared to beg them to take the business you want to give them. Seriously... the service is nonexistent. It's so sad it's almost laughable.…
Really nice quiet place to stay and quite central for a visit to Jerusalem. Good selection of food available and rooms were nice and clean. Probably more suitable for adults though and not families with children.
