4 out of 5
The staff is so nice and helpful! They really could not do enough for us. We were in room number 5, which has a little pantry area outside the bathroom. The showers door does leak and the room needs a paint job, but the room was clean, quiet and adequate. This place gets four stars for a generous included breakfast, great staff and phenomenal location! Ask for room 5 if you want peace, but it IS up a long staircase. Except for the last day there was no issue with hot water, as mentioned in other reviews. On the last day the water wouldn't get really warm.

Staying inside the Jaffa Gate at the New Imperial Hotel was amazing! This was our first trip to Israel and being able to stay within the walls of the Old City was an incredible experience. This hotel is a special place and you feel like you are staying in Jerusalem back in the days Jesus and the apostles walked the streets (minus the tv, electrical outlets, etc.) The complimentary breakfast was excellent and highly recommend the fresh yogurt and honey with sunflower granola. Some tips: The elevator was down since it is so old so if you can bring a smaller suitcase that will help (they are working on fixing it). Also, parking is difficult and the Karta Parking close to the hotel was closed due to the race event that was scheduled or the fact that we came in on the Shabbat (Friday). So if you are renting a car make sure there are no events that will close this parking garage. Also, there is a great restaurant in the street below the hotel owned by a French gentleman that has a very friendly staff and is a nice place to eat, drink, and socialize. Highly recommend this hotel if you don't mind bringing luggage up 1-2 flights of stairs. Also - don't miss the rooftop deck which overlooks King David's Fortress. An Amazing view of the city from up top!
