Recently spent 5 nights at the Olive Tree as a part of an Educational Opportunities tour of Israel. Our room was large and spacious, the food was plentiful and delicious, and the public areas are very welcoming. I have stayed at this hotel before, and love the location. It is a short walk into the Old City or to some wonderful parts of Jerusalem. I would stay here again.

OK stay, but, could have been better

Overall, the 5 nights we'd spent there were generally positive. The room was reasonably spacious, although the area between the foot of the bed and the dresser w/ TV was a bit of a traffic pinch-point. The buffet-style restaurant was spacious with plenty of food options, although several dishes were served cold (must be a cultural thing) which we weren't expecting. WiFi seemed to work well (50 to 70Mbps) everywhere, including the dining area. The negatives were: 1) the elevators were a major traffic pinch-point. There were only 3 of them, and 1 (a "shabbat" elevator) essentially didn't run the entire week were there. So, 2 elevators, which were slow. 2) the shower was one of those 1/2-open types, where the shower door only extended to about the 60% point, meaning you were exposed to room air while showering. I'd much preferred a curtain or a bi-folding glass door. 3) the shower had a slippery bottom, and they didn't provide (at least to our room, others in or group did) a rubber anti-slip mat for the shower floor, even though I'd asked for one at the front desk. 4) There was no swimming pool or hot tub. 5) one section of the dining area was relatively quiet (carpeted floor, decorative ceiling which broke-up sound) while the glass-enclosed section (all hard surfaces, tile floor) was extremely loud, to the point it was hard to hear conversations across the table. 6) the dining area was spacious, but, the use of large round tables (with 10 settings where only 8 would be comfortably-spaced) made seating feel cramped and wasted a lot of space (large area in center of tables were unusable); they would have more efficient and comfortably-spaced seating if they used long rectangular tables.

Not bad but not Awesome

This hotel is very nice, and from what I was told, currently under renovation with the renovated areas being wonderful. The food was very good with exception of the desserts. They were pretty but flavorless. Because I was there with a large tour company, all our breakfasts and dinners were buffets...

This hotel is very nice, and from what I was told, currently under renovation with the renovated areas being wonderful. The food was very good with exception of the desserts. They were pretty but flavorless. Because I was there with a large tour company, all our breakfasts and dinners were buffets with good variety. Front desk staff didn't seem at all interested in helping. Their default answer seemed to be "no" for whatever the request. I would definitely stay there again, but there is room for improvement. The location is excellent.
