Jerusalem Hostel: Jerusalem Hostel

In October 2013 we paid 75$(280nis) for a double room with private bathroom, pricey for a hostel but Jerusalem is expensive.

Location:
On Jaffa street couldn’t be more central, in walking distance (5-10’) from the Old City. There is a tram stop nearby to reach Old City, Yehuda market, central Bus Station etc Lots of stores, café and restaurants around. Ideal spot.

Room:
We had a normal double room with nice view from our balcony over Jaffa street and the twin towers. It was nice until we realized that the tram ring will be disturbing (hopefully it didn’t run through the night too) every 3’ as it passed by Zion square. No frills about the room, but it was a regular 2star room actually, clean and hopefully there was air-condition but we didn’t stay inside much anyway. Bathroom was also clean but there was warm water on specific hours only (we were lucky though)!

Reception/staff:
Helpful staff but be patient as it gets busy, they gave us a code for the front door, the reception area is the common area but we didn’t really stay there.
Have in mind that there will be no one around during Sabbath to answer the door so don’t forget your code :)

Breakfast:
Very poor breakfast, just some bread, jam and instant coffee, in a small kitchen that gets crowded easily with no space to sit! (in summer the roof terrace must be nice) a real unpleasant experience comparing with some great breakfasts we had every day in Israel. But you can use the well equipped kitchen to make your own meals.

Other facilities:
Free wifi in common areas

Ha' Davidika renamed "Abraham" Hostel: The Best Hostel

I came across this Hostel on the internet and decided to book a room. I read the reviews and and decided that it was for me. It was close to where I wanted to go. I booked a single room but upon arrival, I was put in a 4-bunk dorm to myself because they had no single room left. I was pleased. I had my own bath and toilet. It was large and clean with daily housekeeping. I had a balcony outside my window but not for standing. The room did overlook the main street. The hostel was kept neat and tidy with free breakfast in the morning that consisted of plenty of frits and vegatables, tea, juice and coffee. They did have a pancake mix and cereal with hard-boiled eggs and plenty of bread. You could pack a little lunch if you needed to for the day ahead. If you wanted dinner, you could pay the 6 Schekles and have a nice dinner around 6pm. The hostel staff were very friendly and accomodating. the second floor was devoted to the eating area and meeting place. The main lobby was where there was a small area where you could buy some goodies like film, candy and other items. I do remember that they did have an area where they would hold your travel items if you were going somewhere else for a few days. A great place to meet and greet people.

Ramada Hotel Royal Wing: Ramada Chain Hotel in Jerusalem 2

part two of my ramada hotel tips with more pictures around the complex

Actually there are two hotels in the Ramada Hotel in Jerusalem, the Main Ramada Hotel, located at the left side of the hotel complex and is geared more for International Tourists and the Royal Wing at the Right Side, which is geared more for the local Orthodox and Ultra Orthodox Jews and you can see Orthodox Couples Dating at the separate royal wing lobby and bar.

The Ramada Hotel Jerusalem is located in the Center of the New Jerusalem and is located near the Knesset Parliament, the Primne Minister's House, Convention Center.

Off course, the one we had was at the regular Ramada Hotel, not on the Royal Wing. They have a several mini shops at the lobby where you can shop for souvenirs and more. for the bar experience, you need to walk to the other wing to get to the bar (it is connected via an air conditioned walkway).

the Ramada Hotel in Jerusalem is old and the rooms show this as the designs are old (I don't know about the other royal wing part, but I heard it was more clasier) but this was fine for us as we hardly had time to be in the hotel for the two days we stayed as we were around jerusalem and bethlehem for most part of the day up to 9 pm.

amenities include: paid internet and wifi, no complimentaryt bottled water, old tv's, no refrigerator, hot and cold showers, air conditioning, buffet breakfast, etc.

Israelease accomodation in Jerusalem: Great short term apartment rentals in Jerusalem

We've visited Jerusalem last year, and stayed in an Israelease apartment (they have short term apartments for rent in Jerusalem, Tel Aviv etc.) - I have to say it was an amazing stay.
The apartment was increadible, the area was very quiet and yet still in the centre of Jerusalem - in the German Colony - which is a beautiful place.
The German Colony itself is actually a tour site as well. It's surrounded by Synagogues, supermarkets and shopping areas so there's plenty to do there. Transportation is in just a minute of walking (it's around the corner).

I've looked up the Jerusalem section on their website - http://www.israelease.com/en/Short_Term_Rental_Jerusalem.html?fld_city=22¤cy_name=1
The second one - The EMEK - is where we stayed. It goes highly recommended.

The EMEK apartment (where I stayed) includes 4 bedrooms - 10 of us fitted in with room for 3 more! It's a big apartment with lots of beds.
It's got a Kosher kitchen, a big living room, a lovely little porch we could even go out of into a small garden area. They even got cables. The people were very nice as well. In short - it's a dreamy apartment.

Have a good trip!
Mike.

Abraham hostel: Great place that has it all

This great hostel has been well thought out and has everything i look for in a hostel, hence why it makes my list of favourites.

Its located on Hanev'im street, about a 15min walk to the old town but just a 5min walk to Mahane yehuda market.

Its 270NIS for a double room for a night including a continental (meat and chesse less) breakfast.

Staff are friendly and helpful, it has a great common area that includes a small bar with various different types of chair/seat to chill out on, a tv lounge, a large kitchen and eating area and a games area. they soon plan to have a roof terrace.
they organise many trips around and out of city and also pub crawls.

breakfast is basic but you can eat lots!

the double room is en suite and big enough to have plenty of space, including a fridge and sink.

would stay here again and again

Lutheran Guesthouse: A nice, clean hotel in Old Town

I warmly recommend the Lutheran Guesthouse!
It is very difficult to find good accommadation in the Old town, this is the best there is! Very nice and friendly, clean, accessible and moderate in price.
The Lutheran Guesthouse is close to Jaffa Gate, although you propably need to ask for directions anyway. If you do not have a really good map, the Old town is a labyrinth. (You can go straight from Jaffa Gate down the stairs to the suc and then take first to right, stairs go upp seemingly to a little shop on the top but they also continue to an alley. Keep going for about 100m and the Guesthouse has a little sign hanging on your left hand side.)
I think they have a about 30 rooms and the prices are moderate. I payed for a single room in May 2010 appr. 50 euro per night, including a very nice breakfast buffe.
The rooms are small but fully equipped and most of them have a fantastic view straight over the roofs!
There is a roof terrace and a large commonroom where you can get tea and coffee all hours. You can also book table for dinner.
There is a computer that hotelguests can use free of charge.
I was very pleased with my stay and especially so when I later had a look at some of the other guesthouses in Old town. Mine was definetely the best choice!

Central location.
Great views.
Clean and friendly.

Hotel Imperial

I do not know much about this hotel, just that it is located just by the Jaffa gate of the old city. A nice place if your main attraction are the old city where you can walk just about anywhere from here.

Just inside Jaffa Gate of Old Jerusalem: Christ Church Guest House

We did not stay here on this trip, but we did have lunch. The lunch was a simple open smorgasboard affair, but for the little money it cost it was very plentiful and tasty. We slso made note that the was extremely clean and well kept, I would assume that the rooms are similar. Please let me know if you try this place out.

What is good about the guest house is the location. It is INSIDE the old city, just to the right after you pass through the Jaffa Gate, literally under David's Tower (near the Police Station).

Notre Dame de Sion: Notre Dame de Sion, Quiet and restful

The VT Jerusalem 2008 meet slept here. They should put a sign up !!
Anyway most of us did sleep here, Antonio, Katherine, Valentina, Frosia, Simon, Louise, Vere, Julie, Jo, Carmen and Angela...only Fruitlover (Avi) opted to stay away. We also had cameo visits by our daughter who stayed overnight and also Sharon who arrived to say hello to the group and have dinner with us at Pundak Ein Karem.
The accomodations are not fancy, but the rooms are spacious and clean with plenty of hot water for showers. What makes this place special are two things.

The first special thing is a feeling of ease, no pressure, a sort of calmness, even the people there who serve you do not seem harried as they often do in hotels. It gives you a better chance to enjoy your surroundings.
The second thing is the lookout point. There is a small area surrounded by a high fence and covered in shade trees where you can bring your coffee and sit and just watch the grass grow, a very calming place and a beautiful view.
Take the opportunity to wander the grounds of the monastary grounds, they have gardens and even a small cemetary that is interesting.
The actual cost in September 2008 was 780 NIS for two people for two nights including breakfast. That is much less than most decent B&B's.

Notre Dame de Sion Guesthouse, Ein Kerem: Find a Nun and You'll Find Good Accomodation

Notre Dame de Sion Guesthouse is in Ein Kerem, a village to the west of Jerusalem, officially part of the greater city area but in reality quite rural and light years removed from the atmosphere of the city. The guesthouse is part of the convent of the Notre Dame de Sion order and as you would expect from nuns it is very well run and absolutely spick and span. The convent is set inside huge gates and inside you step into a different world. The buildings are old and mellow, the walled gardens, a profusion of flowers and shrubs, the paths shaded by ancient trees. The rooms here are not luxurious but they are clean and comfortable with beautiful views over the surrounding countryside. Breakfast is in a seperate building and walking through the gardens in the early morning, then eating on the patio makes for a very pleasurable start to the day. Breakfast itself is quite adequate but not what I would call generous and it's not the kind of place that you would commit the sin of gluttony in. Pricewise, it's reasonable but not cheap. For three nights there I paid approximately EURO120 which was my share of a double room. I would recommend this guest house without hesitation as staying here is like staying in a monastery in Tuscany but it is a long way from the city centre so unless you have your own transport , getting here could be expensive. There is a bus to Ein Kerem from the Central Bus Station on Jaffa Road, the 17 or the 17A

The unique qualities of this accommodation are the beautiful setting and the outstanding views over the surrounding countryside. It's an idyllic location with a very rare ambience and atmosphere so if you value these qualities then this is definitely for you.

St. Andrews Scottish GuestHouse: St. Andrews Scottish GuestHouse

St. Andrews Scottish Guest house is one of the most beautiful places to stay at in Jerusalem.
Located 10 minutes walk from the old city though on a small hill and watching to the old city so you can have a great view.
Its a relatively small and nice places, pretty quiet and very relaxed.
However most recommended to book a room quite in advanced since its not always easy to get a room there.
I have not slept there though spent there few evenings, enjoying a glass of wine and watching the old city walls but im planing to stay there soon, its simply the kind of places i like.
