The hotel is located within walking distance of the old city of Jerusalem (15 min?), in a great pedestrian-only neighborhood with many shops and restaurants, so the location is good for tourists wanting to be near the main sites but not in the cramped and thronged old city itself. It is a fairly small hotel with character, almost like a large B&B. The food provided, both at breakfast and at the 5pm "happy hour," is delicious, interesting, and plentiful. If you've read the cookbook "Plenty" and hoped to experience some of that kind of cooking during your visit to Isreal, then this place is for you. In addition to all this, we cannot thank the staff of this hotel enough for their "beyond the call" hospitality during a major snowstorm that occurred while we were there. Knowing that many visitors would be stranded by the storm (restaurants closed, transportation shut down), the staff (manager, cook, etc.) stayed at the hotel and provided more food than usual so that the guests would be taken care of in spite of the entire city shutting down. A terrific hotel and terrific people!
