It’s in a great location in regards to Old Jerusalem. 🙂 We had to ask three times for our complimentary wine and fruit. 🙁 Never heard back from the concierge regarding dinner reservations 🙁

Decent hotel

Caters mainly to the Jewish community given its access to the old city. For around $500 a night have stayed in better places which provided more value for the price. Even the breakfast was very average for such a high priced hotel.

Very pleasant experience here...

We stayed here for 5 nights in May 2010 and were very glad we did. Beautiful lobby. Beautiful rooms. Beautiful pool. Wonderful Israeli breakfast (though we wish they would serve water and juice in something larger than a 2 oz. glass). The service was very good, though not outstanding. The ONLY real negative (though it wasn't for us) you could say about this hotel, is that it is just another typical very modern, upscale hotel with no real Jerusalem history behind it. My Rating: 4 and 1/2 stars (out of 5)

I have stayed here many times and by far it is the prettiest, most luxurious and well kept large hotel in Israel. Right in the middle of Jerusalem, immaculate rooms and great gym/pool/everything. If your going to Jerusalem don't stay anywhere else.
