I will be visiting israel again in july and cannot wait!
Last time I was there about 5 months ago (also my first time there) I stayed at a smaller hotel and was very unhappy. It had decent reviews, so I thought id give it a shot. The rooms didn't have alarm clocks, so I couldn't know what time of day it was. The rooms also were very small, tiny beds, and bad smells. The service was terrible however, breakfast was fantastic!
I'm looking for a moderately priced hotel, has basic ammenities, good service and good breakfast. Also am not sure of the names of various neighborhoods in jerusalem, but i would like to be near the shuk and ben yehuda hangout spots
Thanks for the help and suggestions!
Check out the Harmony Hotel on Yoel Salomon Street. The rooms are small, but it is smack in the center of town and has very good reviews on Trip Advisor. Don't expect an alarm clock or a king size bed.
When you travel do you not wear a wrist watch so that you know what time of day it is?
What do you consider moderately priced? If you can give us an idea of your budget, it will be easier to suggest something.
Gila's suggestion is a good one. Another budget hotel, with very high floors and excellent views smack in the center of town is the Jerusalem Tower hotel:
Also as Gila noted, unless you are willing to pay for the top luxury hotels don't expect large rooms or or king size beds. Same goes for alarm clocks. If available at all they will be only in the more expensive places. Maybe invest in a small travel clock?
Another hotel in a good location, but more expensive is the brand new Montefiore hotel:
Let us know how you are getting on and if you want more suggestions - with a price range that you consider moderate.
The Jerusalem Tower is less expensive than the Harmony. Harmony is new while Jerusalem Tower is older and its' rooms ( or at least the one my friend's were in) was showing signs of wear. It would help if you would tell us where you were--so we could get an idea of what disappointed you.
I also add--dont' expect alarm clocks. Most hotels --call the desk and they will provide a wake-up call for you ( usually automated) or bring your own!
I've stayed in the Harmony and it's very good. and whilst good value, not exactly budget. Room small but very comfortable (and I believe they did provide a clock...:)). Breakfasts fantastic (as most Israeli hotels are) and they even provide a 5pm 'snack' a la business lounges in up-market hotels.
Fantastic location - right in the heart of nightlife and a few minutes walk to the sights.
