Not cheap but
... with a great location in the city center. I have stayed here for five days (July 2011) and enjoyed it. Same day (!) telephone reservation from Tel-Aviv was no problem. I'm pretty sure that I come again.
Unique Quality: It is not a backpacker's place, nor a sophisticated hotel, the *** are Israeli ratings. In Germany, it would get * or **. Everything is quite clean and in fair condition. The rooms where I 've stayed were cleaned just fine on a daily basis. At first, I stayed a couple of days in room #27 which was kind of small and on the 2rd floor -- then I moved to room #18 in the first floor (in comparison, it was like being in the President's suite). That room was quite large and even had a nice little balcony with a view to the pedestrian zone. I don't know about the 26 other rooms. You must at least resist to be put in the first floor if not in #18 itself.
The breakfast was not really unforgettable great but edible and with a lot of varieties (really, I have seen much much much worse in Israel). As in all simple Israeli hotels, the cuisine is mostly Israeli, not Western -- concerning the breakfast I mean. The breakfast room on the 1st floor is very spacy and somewhat nice, there are even two seats on a balcony. The public room can be used all day long for reading, computing and relaxing. Internet usage (WiFi) is only possible if you bring your own notebook. C/C accepted.
Sleeping conditions in terms of loudness: Both rooms are adjacent to the ped zone but not filled with a lot of party people. A/C worked just fine and not too loud. Sometimes you hear motor and honk noise from King George St.
I did not like: (1) There's no elevator (carry your luggage up to the 3rd/2nd/1st floor, not having A/C); (2) guests don't get a key to the hotel door (ring the bell 24/7).
As in every hotel in the world, just ask nicely for a special price (esp. if staying a couple of days). In most cases it really works :-) My reduced rate was $85 per night for a double bed room for single use with breakfast.
Directions: The walking distance to the old city is about 35 Minutes, just follow the Yaffa Road (1 minute). I guess nowadays the tram takes you there in "no time" (also Yaffa Rd.). Hundreds of eating and shopping opprtunities within a few miuntes.
Friendly, helpful staff. Good location near to the great restaurants in New Jerusalem. Free wi-fi in the breakfast room, and in the lower rooms (but not on the higher floors).
Clean, but scruffy. On a quiet side street, but the noise from the busy King George Street can be heard, as can the cars coming out of the car park opposite, and there is no double glazing. Views are of a garbage filled parking lot. Quite expensive for what you get, compared to European standards, but the rest of New Jerusalem is expensive too, so it might be about right. Heating inadequate in winter.
Directions: Walk up Jaffa Street from the Old City and take a left down King George Street, and then take the next right up a small side street. The hotel is on your right as the road bends right and becomes Even Israel.
