gorgeous breakfast, relatively cheap
bad location, gorgeous breakfast, relatively cheap, rooms are very small
The location is quite far away. One needs around 25-30ILS to travel back and forth the old city by taxi so the cost saving in the hotel price is not justified by the increased transportation fee / time. There are also few restaurants options nearby. The room is very small and made us very difficult to pack up our stuff. It is fairly tidy and clean. Staffs are helpful and breakfast are very gorgeous with lotsa middle eastern dishes to choose from.

okay
breakfast, view, good beds
the hotel is worn and old, but clean and fresh sheets and comfortable beds with mattress, however it is far to far away from the old city, as it is on a massive hill, and the amounts you spend on taxi fares, you could invest in a closer hotel to the old city.

Convenient location, great views
location, breakfast, price
Mount of Olives Hotel is an old, basic city hotel in a good location. The Garden of Gethsemane is only about 15 min. on foot away, and the Chapel of Ascension is next door. A few minutes walk away is a lookout from which a fantastic panorama of Jerusalem can be enjoyed. While the rooms are simple and pretty old, the breakfast buffet is gorgeous.

It was more than we expected and it was great.
Good lacation, very friendly staff and great food.
Overall our stay was very memorable and very pleasant. The staff was very helpful and since this hotel is located in the Muslim sector, Christians like me were treated very warmly.

Good hotel, great location, excellent breakfast
Location near Palestinian bus into Jerusalem, excellent breakfast, Inexpensive
This was an acceptably comfortable room in a hotel on the main street at the top of the Mount of Olives. It's an easy walk down and across to Jerusalem but there's also a very inexpensive bus a block away direct to the Damascus gate. The back of the hotel would be quieter than the front on the street where muezzins and street life and fireworks can keep you awake well into the night. The room was comfortable and the bathroom functional. It's one of the least expensive hotels in the city and the breakfast is truly outstanding. You can have your major meal of the day then and there.

Location, staff, history
Great location walked outside the hotel door begins the station of the cross. Just from their many historical churches and the beautiful views everywhere you look. And a 35 minute walk to old city but so much to see along the way. We will return soon

Nice Hilltop Location
Helpful staff, good city views
The hotel is in a good location for scenic views of the old city and access to some of the historic sites like Gethsemane and Church of the Ascension but you should probably like exercise as the hotel is a walk up a steep hill. I walked from the old city each day. The staff were helpful arranging tours to more distant sites like the Dead Sea. The rooms were a bit chilly for my taste with thermostats that clearly read higher than the actual temperature. The facilities were clean and breakfast was quite decent.

Basic
Easy access to everything
The hotel was basic. The breakfast buffet was pretty good...the selection was great. All day complimentary coffee and tea. The room was reasonably clean an comfortable. The water was hot and the room was warm enough in winter. The bus took you up and down the hill in about 10 minutes so easy access to everything.

Good value for the money
very good location to see Jerusalem
The hotel staff was accommodating telling us all the point of interest around the area. Our room was modest enough to accommodate traveling couple on a budget.
