              For a short Stay on a Budget”

              Hotel in a good location close to the Downtown Triangle. It is basically next to the old Knesset. Stores, transportation are right around the corner. I chose this hotel after I read some of the reviews. saying it is a good value, especially considering their very friendly staff. I must say I couldn't disagree more. On arrival, I was asked for my passport and the Israel entry paper I received. I had the passport ready, but I stored the paper in my suitcase. They would not want to check me into the room first to look for the paper as a courtesy but let me open my suitcase in front of about 20 people. I was so embarrassed. This is just one of the examples I had with the staff. The room was outdated. The bathroom had some stains and the water smelled like mothballs. So all in all, good for a short stay on a budget. For $20 more you can get a much better experience.

There is a parking lot in a few minutes walk that have a discount for the hotel guests. The staff is very friendly. Breakfast could be better..

              The hotel is just a few blocks away from the city centre. Plenty of shops and restaurants. Old City's Jaffa Gate is just a 10 to 15 minutes walk. The staff was helpful and knowledgeable of the area and things that could be done. Montefiore remains a very good option.

              Our hotel was about a 15-minute walk from Old Jerusalem, and also close to great restaurants and shopping. It was very clean and comfortable. It felt very safe as well. We booked a room without breakfast, but upon arrival we were told we could still have it for no extra charge.

              Chose hotel for its location and was not disappointed, though one must be prepared for a good amount of walking if the Old City is the destination. It is rather dated, but the price reflects it. The breakfast is excellent and plentiful. WiFi is terribly slow and meets only the basic requirements for a tourist’s needs.

              Staff was very nice and welcoming. The room was just fine.. shower had great water pressure. There was a hint of a smell but I think that comes with an older building. The breakfast was a nice array of stuff. We are American and not kosher and it was a bit different than what we are used to. It is a great hotel for our style. It was in a good location in case you need to go back and grab something from your room. The only time we spent there was for rest considering there’s so much to see in Jerusalem. If your looking to spend more time at the hotel maybe go elsewhere. But for a nice room at a good price to shower at and sleep at, this is the place.

              The bathroom was smelly and not clean. We asked on morning two of five for a basin plug and two chairs for our balcony - none materialised. What use is a balcony with no chairs? Having got that off my chest, the beds were comfy, shower great and the breakfast better than average. Most of the staff, with the exception of one, was friendly and helpful.

              Location is quite good - few stops from the Old City, few stops from the Central Bus Station. The room was OK except that the shower was leaking all the time and not well regulated. AC is a pain in the neck - it is either too cold or too warm so we had to ask the manager to send us someone for fixing (and received a proper aid - after that we slept at a close to freezing point temperature..;) Breakfasts were good but too kosher... we were missing some meet. Well, overall, I would recommend this hotel for either short or long staying as it balances several things which are important for travellers.

              The hotel's location on a pedestria-nonly street makes for a nice quiet stay. Pleasant staff helped us. Lovely breakfast buffet with the traditional Israeli spread. Rooms have the standard amenities... TV, safe, bath & shower, etc. Beds were fine. The only problem is that parking is difficult in this area and there is no driveway for a friend or taxi to pull over and wait... You must be waiting on the street so you can jump into the car quickly. Still, we'll stay here next time. We liked it.
