                I would recommend the location of this hotel, very close to Jaffa Gate and within walking distance to several restaurants. The room was small and dated, however the staff was friendly and very helpful. The breakfasts were tasty too.

                Best location Breakfast not the best not the worst but included which is nice My only issue was that when I checked in I had to come downstairs three times because the pass key wouldn’t work so they gave me a Shabbat key when I left, the young girl demanded I go upstairs and get it which was inappropriate I think

                This was our 2nd visit to Jerusalem . Initially on arrival I was impressed. The staff seemed friendly and attentive. First looks can be deceiving. During my stay at the hotel I had two rooms. Room 218 - which had a horribly view - a terrible fridge that looked like it should be condemned and both rooms had chipped and dated furniture. The breakfast I had were a mix of good and bad - there was a nice choice of buffet items however the hot options were cold and not eatable. The 2nd room (409) had to be the worse laid out room. To charge items you had to unplug lamps or the kettle . On final day I found a plug hidden in wardrobe. Even the staff did not seem to know of this existence as earlier in the evening one of them had to come to the room as the main light was not working - I mentioned the lack of plugs and they just shrugged. Another incidence was getting out the shower the chambermaid has only left hand towels and no bath ones - little things ! Next time back to Legaxy !

                Clean and quiet room, not spacious but adequate. Nice included breakfast buffet and free parking (underground parking). Front desk staff helpful and pleasant. Almost directly across the street from the historic King David Hotel (costing about 3 times as much) and next to the YMCA. Walk the neighborhood art galleries down the hill to the Mamilla Mall with clothing and jewelry stores and busy cafes and bakeries. Rent a car from Eldan at adjacent office.

                The hotel is placed in a very central location close to all the major locals, The room itself is not 'a wow' it is good for a bed to sleep at night but don't expect anything greater. The breakfast is quite good , there are options . The hotel has a small parking that you may use if there is a free space if not there is a 35nis a day parking near . The room could be cleaner , the bathroom was badly cleaned and there was a bad odor there.

                The Elden is excellent for: location, value, breakfasts, clean, well-appointed for a non-American country, nice staff, Wifi, quiet rooms, comfortable bedding. However, it could use some updating. The bathrooms are small and need re-caulking. They are clean but run down. Same with some of the wallpaper and closet doors, etc. However, for me, the value outweighs the style and it's clean, so I'm quite good!

                The Staff, The Location and The City of Jerusalem

                A lovely stay in a comfortable hotel. The city of Jerusalem is amazing and the Eldan was the perfect place to return to each night as a sanctuary. It is also in a wonderful location, diagonally across from The King David Hotel and across the street from the most beautiful YMCA I have ever seen. It was a nice walk down to Mamilla Shopping Mall, with some nice restaurants. The Eldan's furnishings were just a step above adequate, but the staff was outstanding! We got back late one night from a journey to Israel's North and we were completely exhausted but also very hungry. Dining hours had finished, but the Eldan staff still went the extra mile and put together a very nice dinner for us so that we didn't have to go out again. We were so grateful! Would definitely come back to the Eldan whenever we return to Jerusalem, and that is the best compliment I can think of!

                An excellent room, with comfortable bed, space, and view of Jerusalem. A great value for either business or traveler to Israel.
                An older hotel, but nonetheless adequate.

                My stay at the Eldan was selected by a friend of mine. By the time I left, I would have selected it myself. The staff, location, and breakast provided daily offered a great value for my stay. I would recommend the Eldan for anyone looking for a good hotel in the city. They offer good service at a great price.

                Eldan Hotel Jerusalem”

                Convenience. Close to a well-equipped grocery store, close to the old city, in the very expensive neighborhood of hotels but at much more affordable rates. Breakfast is extensive, hotel staff was helpful.
                Room was small(ish), admittedly we squeezed in a third person, and we weren't surprised. We weren't in it much.

                Overall the Eldan was good value; you could spend a lot more in Jerusalem for a worse location, worse service, and worse rooms. We were a little surprised at the refrigerator in the room; I don't how it was advertised, it was smallish and enclosed in a box that made it difficult to exhaust the heat from the back. We were worried that it wasn't doing much cooling, and asked at the desk; they explained that it was a "mini-bar" and not a refrigerator. When I asked the difference I was told that a minibar conserved temperature, but doesn't cool; seems a strange distinction. Anyhow we got a bag of ice from the kitchen and put it in with our stuff, and that seemed to do the job. It's not elegant, there are some nice touches; coffee and cakes seemed to appear for the taking in the lobby, I couldn't tell you the schedule but they were appreciated. It's as central to tourist Jerusalem as you can be; they have parking but it's the tightest parking lot I've ever seen, and the car is really a liability in that part of town...you can walk most places faster than you can drive, particularly if you don't know the area well. We didn't expect all that much, it was nicer than I expected...so I'd say it was a fine deal.

                The location could not be bettered and it was good value for money. However it is becoming a bit tired - for example there was a piece of skirting board lying loose on the floor and cupboard handles loose. However I would stay again, although I would check the price of the next-door YMCA first.

                Decent hotel”

                Stayed with a friend at the hotel for a week and we were pleased with our choice. The bedrooms are very nice and the bed was extremely comfortable. We were at the back of the hotel though and didn't have a good view so I would recommend asking for a room with a view. The staff were efficient although not over friendly, breakfast was great with lots of choice and the hotel is only 10 minutes walk from the old city - I have to say though that it is all uphill on the way back! All things considered this is a good hotel.
