Very nice hotel owner, when we first arrived in the hotel, he gave us city map and told us information about Jerusalem, very nice person! Location is excellent, only 4 tram stops to the Central Bus Station, and only 10-15 mins walking distance from the old city, the surrounding is clean and safe.

A good place to stay for a couple of days when you are in Jeruzalem. It is not the most luxurious hotel but it is definitely worth the money. Kaplan hotel lies at the famous Yaffo street, in walking distance to a lot of bars, restaurants, snackbars and very important: in walking distance to the old city. The only disadvantage...

The hotel is situated just out side the old city, it is about 15 mins walk to get there. The walk to the city takes you along Jaffa Street right to Jaffa Gate, you can't go wrong. The service from Natan was 2nd to none making you feel very welcome, and he took time to explain what to do and...

Hotel is in great location in center of Jerusalem. It is closed to the Old city (5 minutes by walk), restaurants, markets, churches, walking street. Staff is friendly, flexible and helpful. Hotel is clean, you get free towels and linen.

נתן דער בעל הבית קוקט גיט נאך זיינער אורחים Great location and amazing service. Natan, the owner, is a fine guy who looked after me well. This is not a luxury five star hotel by any stretch but it is kept clean, the beds are big and comfortable, and the location is hard to match. As it is the center...

This is a small cute hotel in the very centre of Jerusalem. It is close to the old city, walking streets, markets, restaurants, churches and mosques, antique sellers and various cafes. There is a tram outside the hotel and also a few buses just a short walk away. Like everyone who stayed here we love Eli and Nathan who host...

The hotel is very well located, very close to the old city, the market, bars, restaurants and the light rail. Rooms are a bit austere, but you will miss nothing you can't do without. I willl definitely return here when I visit Jerusalem again.

We spend there 5 nights and it was amazing! Cute little rooms, some with nice balconies. It's close to the old city and the market and with some nice bars in the streets around the hotel. Because of them it's a little bit noisy at night when you're outside on the balcony but inside with closed windows it's almost quiet....

For a start, ask for a balcony room. We are here now and we are loving it. Natan has been extremely helpful and hospitable. It's a great location but very basic. Jerusalem is expensive so this is a great budget choice. Close to the old city and plenty of choice for eating and site seeing. Sonya and Michael
