    Great value”

    It’s probably about a half mile from the old city of Jerusalem. It’s probably a good fifteen minute walk. On the way back it seems all up hill! The place was great. The breakfast was good. The price in the bar for two sodas and two french fries was about $20.00. There are some good Lebanese restaurants within a few blocks. Great place to stay

    Delightful stay”

    Great experience for three nights. I know this may sound weird but even the parking garage under the hotel is clean and smells clean. The room was great, very clean and spacious especially for the money. The breakfast was fantastic. Eat after 8:00 am and it is less crowded after the tour bus crowd leaves. Plenty of variety of foods with plenty of salads, great breads and muffins. You are about three to four blocks from the old City and the Damascus gate. As you enter the Muslim section is a visual treat to see the shops, smell the food and enjoy the city. It is also very close to the Gordon's Calvary and the empty tomb (pass right by it). I'd stay again!

    Very good”

    Overall I would give four and a half out of five stars. The staff, except for one, was very friendly and accommodating. However, when I checked in on my first night the male clerk was not very welcoming. It seemed that my presence was more of a bother to him (I was the only one in the lobby checking in since it was around 2 AM). I arrived late because my tour bus from Petra, Jordan didn't get to Jerusalem until late. The clerk just went through the motion-like a robot. No smile. No welcome to the Grand Court Hotel. No thank you. No have a wonderful stay, nothing. Other than this one hiccup, everything was great. The food – Breakfast and Dinner was great. I would recommend this hotel.

    spacious room, well-equipped hotel, close to major attractions

    Walking distance to the Damascus Gate, close to the orthodox Jewish area. Nice lobby and well-equipped. It's a pity that the swimming pool's opening hour is between 10.00-18.00 when most people will go out for sightseeing or working. Wide variety of buffet breakfast. Room is spacious and has a nice view of the garden inside the hotel. Fusion cuisine is available. Check-in is a bit slow though.

    Great location, great breakfast, big and clean rooms

    Everything was so nice at this hotel. We stayed two nights and wanted to extend one more night. This hotel is very popular with tour groups. Luckily we managed to get one more night. The one problem we encountered was the internet connectivity was poor in the room. We had to go to the common area for wifi.

    Would go back there anytime, loved it. The hotel is spacious, beautifully kept, the front desk staff were always so pleasant and helpful. They had 6 computors free of charge for their guests to use. Breakfasts were amazing in variety and each and every hot dish was tasty. Their salads and fruit salds were always fresh and excellent and their bread out of this world.

    Rental iPad with 3G is Covenient.

    The Concept of the hotel is very efficeint. Then we can get the information from the iPad on the front. Only Ground foor is free WiFi zone and also can use PCs(perhaps free). The design of the hotel is very cool, the atomosphere is sophisticated ,and is near the Madagascal Gate (10minutes for walk). One of the front staff is very kind (the others are not so kind). Also one of the restaurant staff is very kind but the managerlike man is not so good. But we felt very cold at fist night and we called front desk and concielge some times to bring us the blankets, but they didn't come and bring.

When we 1st arrived the room we were assigned was not to our liking and requested another floor. No problem.

    Very helpful and friendly reception staff willing and able to give advice. Excellent breakfasts with loads of choice, both hot and cold. Good swimming pool. Good location.
    Not enough loungers by the pool.

    All staff were friendly and helpful but the reception staff went out of their way to offer useful advice. The breakfasts were excellent with amazing choice. Our first breakfast was on Shabbat and we thought the choice was good then but the following day was even better. Rooms very comfortable. The location of the hotel is good for the Old City and the American Colony Hotel if you want to call in there for a posh coffee. On the slightly negative side many of the rooms are a long way from the lifts - but that wouldn't be a problem usually it was just that we had Mum with us and she can't walk far.

    Excellent location, with good sized rooms. ideal for Families.
    Package Tour mentality at Breakfasts

    Good Breakfast, and generally I would say better value for money than those located near to the bus station. Close to Bethlehem buses which are located adj the Garden Tomb, which is very close to the Hotel.5-10 min walk to Damascus Gate, 20 min walk to Yaffa Gate and the new up market shopping area. The room I was in was clean, and a good size. Small problem with the Toilet flush, but it was soon sorted. No grounds to complain about this Hotel on my visit.

    The Grand Hotel is not for tourists ”

    We chose this location for its proximity to the Old City. We did not, however, expect to be ignored as non-Orthodox tourists. The check-in process alone took two hours --waiting for the room to be ready, then waiting in a long line of rude people to actually retrieve the key. Our stay was from Friday to Saturday and there was no way to get even a cup of coffee on Friday evening because of Shabbat. People sitting at the bar could get alcohol, though -- which I thought was strange. The breakfast on Saturday was segregated between Shabbat-observers and non-Shabbat observers. I asked a staff member if the coffee was hot and she looked glaringly at me and said WHAT? WHAT? With the throngs of people who come to see the Holy Land, the website needs to specify that if you are from a different religion, you will not feel welcomed at this hotel. It was a very disappointing experience and I did not like the unapproachability of the staff. I do not understand this sort of exclusivity.

    Location wasn't as bad as the service

    The receptionist were arrogant , with no exception. I thried to call 7 time to get them to fix the wifi in my room - no luck. When my mother and I paid money to use the massage chairs and they didn't work, all staff members told us that it was not their responsibility (even though the hotel obviously gets a cut of the profit!), and we could call the massage chair company the next day to get them fixed if we wanted..?! The hotel did not offer any apology; put up a sign that the chairs were malfunctioning; nor did they return to us the money before I had to make a big fuss! I would not stay at this hotel ever again.

    Good location but no Wi-Fi in rooms.”

    Close to Old City Jerusalem

    Sometimes when people book a hotel room, it is based on the description which the hotel provides. When the hotel fails to deliver, your visit to their establishment may not be satisfactory. The only place in the hotel where you could get connected to their Wi-Fi was within a small radius of their check-in desk. Now, this is a hotel packed with tour groups, and of course those groups take up every available seat between the check-in desk and the bar. The only place on the hotel grounds where I could login and do my work was to sit outside their main door in the cold Jerusalem winter weather.
