staff was very helpful. concierge, Adi, very helpful and pleasant to work with. Room service helped with questions and did not give me an attitude. Much appreciate that!. Accomodations and food were also good.

Don't go to this hotel until renovation is done

We stayed one week in this hotel and we were not satisfied at all. Maybe except for the nice girl that was in the reception, when we arrived. She gave us a hearty welcome and helped us carry our luggage tot the elevator - that was one floor down! At the moment, the hotel is being renovated - and very much in need of it, too! Carpets and walls are stained, furniture is old and worn out, sliding doors to balcony are jammed: in short, the whole hotel is past glory and in dire need of renovation. Moreover, the rooms were not cleaned every day and some days there was no hot water. And most annoying were the people that stayed in the room next door: they were terribly loud - until after 2.00 a.m.! Even the seemingly fair price of $90 USD per night, does not make up for the shortcomings of the hotel at the moment. Though WIFI is free, it was not possible to print our boarding passes or other documents. Breakfast was included, but only available in another hotel (Ritz hotel), where they started clearing the tables and the buffet by 9 a.m., although it was said to serve breakfast until 9.30 a.m. The receptionist at hotel Meridian did not even know the exact time breakfast was served, so we missed it the first day. While we were staying in that part of East Jerusalem, the area was in turmoil because of the killings of young Israeli and Palestinian teenagers. We wanted to go out and have dinner, so we went to some restaurants nearby that were very nice: Askediniah, Pasha's, and the restaurant in the American Colony Hotel. Only one evening, we felt insecure: there were youngsters throwing rocks and there was a lot of police in the streets. Though we were never targeted, we did not feel very safe. Checking out of the hotel was a disaster: they could not print the bill and we had to go over to the Ritz Hotel to pay our bill, unless we could pay the bill in cash. There was no one to help us carrying our luggage from the room.

Really friendly welcoming team but hotel itself is very tired

I stayed here for business with three colleagues for 11 nights in June. It was very cheap - just $90 USD a night, with the 7th night free. Included in the price was free WIFI which was fast and mostly reliable (we had a glitch on one evening but that was all), and breakfast. The breakfast was very basic. Most days it included pitta, hummus, salad, watermelon, cold boiled eggs and blancmange, squash, tea and coffee. There were also some radio active looking corn flakes which tasted a bit cheesy? The rooms were spacious with a fridge, air con and seating. My room had a bath with shower over it. It was surprisingly powerful with reliable hot water. The decor is dated, and the furniture is very tired indeed. The undersides of the chairs and bed were tattered and I'm pretty sure there had been mice at some point. I found some droppings in my room but couldn't tell if they were old or new as the cleaning was so sketchy. The carpet was also very old and stained. The cleanliness was pretty poor. Although the room was serviced most days the bedding wasn't changed the whole time I was there, and had some dubious marks on it. And the surfaces were not thoroughly cleaned. The hotel facilities were also not exactly as advertised. The restaurant wasn't open at all while we were there and looked as if it hadn't been for a very long time. So there was nowhere in the hotel to get food except at breakfast. There was no mini bar. And although there was a self laundry the machines were not working during our stay. The business suite had a computer and printer. It was old but seemed serviceable. I might be wrong but when you come here you get the impression that this is a fading glory. I wouldn't be surprised if it was a family business in which the children of the family had taken over. They are all young and very welcoming and enthusiastic, but don't seem to have a handle on things that are so fundamental to securing returning custom. If they are reading this I hope they will take this advice and focus on cleanliness as a priority. People can forgive old furnishings if they are clean. Breakfast could also use an overhaul. Fresh fruit, cereal and bread would be a real improvement. Just a few notes about the area: The hotel is really well located just a 15 minute walk from the Old City in one direction, and 10 minutes from DFID and the OQR office in the other. I appreciate that the situation in the region can change quickly but I have to disagree with comments made by others about feeling unsafe in the area. This wasn't my experience at all. We went out at night and felt safe and didn't receive any unwanted attention from locals. We felt welcome and didn't feel disapproved of or threatened in any way. There are some good restaurants in the area but these are mostly within hotels so I can understand why some reviewers may have missed them. Try the Al Watani at The National Hotel, The Philapelphia or The Azzahra. I hope that this review is helpful and genuinely wish the Meridian team all the best in the future.
