                Surprisingly nice room”

                Considering the price for a night the rooms are pretty good standard and the bathroom was quite up-to-date. There's not alot infrastructure around, but the Toasty24 acroos the street can oofer at least some snack for a reasonable price. It's a 15 min. walk to get to to the Lion's Gate and a pretty sweaty task to get there with your luggage if you walk up the hill.

                Decent Hotel in excellent location”

                Overall good experience, even got upgraded to a bigger room for free. At the end of the day its a budget hotel but everything was satisfying. Nice helpful staff. The main selling point of course is the glorious location on the Mount of Olives with a marvelous view over Jerusalem and the old city. The only real point of critique would be that there are no fridges in the rooms which makes bringing your own food difficult.

                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.

                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.

                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.

                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.

                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.

                some of the furnishings are a little worn but the place has an elegance that will be enjoyed by all - I saw several areas being painted while I was there

                I recommend Seven Arches to anyone who loves Jerusalem and wants to stay where the view of the old city, including the Dome of the Rock and the Church of the Holy Sepulcher, is amazing. Those who appreciate history and the delicate balance of religions in the Jerusalem area would deeply appreciate this hotel. On my last night there was a Muslim family wedding group and large Jewish Sabbath extended family and Israeli soldiers groups. We all respected each other greatly.
