Great location and budget friendly

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on February 24, 2010

I am staying at Jerusalem Gold because as a member of RCI, the timer share company, they offered a last minute deal at this property for RCI members.

I was impressed by the location of the property, it is literally connected to the Bus station, the entrance has a Jaffa address but the entrance is behind the property where the busses enter the Bus Station.

The staff are very helpful with questions and suggestions. I would give this property a solid 2 out of 5 stars.
It's modern in the sense that it has an elavator, wifi, but the rooms are small and are showing some wear and tear. If you are looking for good location, safe, clean, and affordable the Jerusalem Gold is for you. If you are looking for a bit more comfort i.e. Marriott/Hilton type of property then Jerusalem Gold is not for you.

Unique Quality: There's no pool, meals are not included in the price of the room but are sold seperately and are served in the basement dining room. I chose not to buy the meal package because I found food for a lot less with the many nearby restaurants. Many of the hotel guests did dine in the hotel dining room but I think they might have done so for the sake of convenience. Jerusalem is a great city to get cheap eats if you don't mind eating at stalls and small restaurants serving local food like Falafel and Swarma.

The hotel is right next to the Bus Station which makes it very convenient to catch busses to other cities within Israel. There are major city busline stops on Jaffa rd. A grocery store is also next door, plenty of restaurants for the budget minded along Jaffa road too all within a few minutes of the hotel.

The hotel offers WiFi for $10 a day but it works well.
The rooms come with color tv with remote, not flat screen though.
Daily room service/changing the bed sheets and towels.
No Microwave
Free In room safe
Small Closet to store luggage and hang clothes.
Two twin beds are put together for one large bed which means the dreaded "Canyon" in the middle of the bed effect.
Small foam chair which looked like it could be a third bed for a child.
There is in room heat and air conditioning but didn't work too well.
There is a small window that opens a bit to let air in/out but then you get the traffic noise of Jaffa road and construction from the street car line that will be running by years end 2010/early 2011?

Directions: Faces Jaffa road but the entrance is at the rear of the building next to the main bus station. Once you see the modern suspension bridge you know you are nearby.

The right hotel for very small people !

"Quiet European elegance, comfort, and affordability meet in the Jerusalem Gold Hotel,to create a hidden sanctuary amid the overwhelming blaze of history, diversity,and faith that is Jerusalem."
So far, so good, quoted from the hotel's folder; the hotel may once have been an elegant and comfortable house; after some refurbishments all what is left are friendly staff, good food and an unchanged, not so central location as anticipated. A brisk walk of at least 35 minutes may bring you to the Old Town, but better take a taxi!
The hotel-rooms are small, smaller, the smallest- a double bed taking most of the space, giving you hard problems to host your suitcase (and that's not an exception, it refers to most of the rooms!)
Amenities like minibar or coffee-making-machines are unknown. But the worst thing of everything you are going to encounter is the "restaurant":, situated in the second basement: a rather small room hosts about 350 (!) seats at long,extremely narrow tables (you might erroniously take your vis a vis plate for yours). It is that cramped, that it is nearly impossible to find your way from the rich buffet back to your table (hosting 8-10 people) .
In contrast to the above the food is near to very good,the staff friendly and helpful. So you'll have to decide: I for myself would rather take another hotel, all in all !

Unique Quality: see above !
Friendly receptionists and staff, not everywhere met in Israel !

Directions: Close to the central Bus Station

Take care, they are thiefs

Low class hotel, expensive buffet dinner sharing the table with other 6 people speaking in other language and eating without education (same problem for breakfast)
Small room, Bathroom and TV didnt work. Bad location.
Expensive parking and there is no place to park outside
And finally my wife and I have to pay 85$ for a dinner when the bill was only 75$ (35$ each plus 5$ a beer).... sharing the table with 6 Moldavians (All my respect for that country but I traveled only with my wife, it doesnt matter the passport of people that is seated in your private table without your permision)
DONT GO THIS HOTEL.
Even without the incident of the bill we dont recommend this hotel beacuse we think that is used for low class groups

Unique Quality: Small rooms, no facilities at all

Directions: Bus station
