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!

WA family in Nazareth made reservations for us at the Jerusalem Hotel. When we arrived, we were treated with Arab hospitality. We were offered a refreshing glass of limonana. Our room was clean and spacious, full of character with beautiful antiques and stonework, and up to date with modern conveniences. The staff were helpful and kind, treating us almost like we were long-lost family. We were in walking distance of the old city and Gordon’s Calvary and the Garden Tomb. Walking along the walls of the Old City from the Damascus Gate to the Tower of David was wonderful. We felt the ambience and utter security. In the morning (and for the rest of our stay) there was a full spread of Arab breakfast foods, with all the additional items Americans and Europeans would want. Raed Sadeh, the owner, took us to Bethlehem and to some off-the-beaten-track shops, away from the tour buses. He introduced us to his friends. We were impressed with his kindness. Each day Raed arranged for us to have a private car and driver to take us on our excursions. The only downside was an overly-happy driver one day, and a car air conditioner that couldn’t keep up along the Dead Sea on another day. When it was time to leave, they arranged transportation to the bus station, personally said good-bye, and treated us to another glass of limonana. We are not rich nor famous, just ordinary Americans from the Mid-West. The price was very reasonable. The food was excellent. Raed and the staff went the extra mile. The head waiter was a gem. This is definitely the place to stay.

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...

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.
