    The location and ambience of this place is excellent. The attractions in the old city are just a short walk away. Do not miss the night city views from the top of the tower! Access to the sports center is an added bonus. Over all a great stay...

    Though stayed only 1 night, the staff treated me like a relative, very friendly. The bell tower offered a wonderful night time view of Jerusalem, while Sunday morning, the bells played familiar tunes. Room was clean and bed was firm. Slept well....
