“Comfortable, clean and central - thank you Gad”
Reviewed 18 November 2011 for a stay in September 2010

The owner Gad made us very welcome and provided a great deal of useful information for our one week stay (which we thoroughly enjoyed). The unit was very comfortable, clean and central to the Old City as well as the shops, restaurants, markets etc in Jerusalem. The apartment is on the 4th floor (lift available) with a terrace facing Ben Yehuda street. It is inner city living so expect some background noise. Gad only accepted a bank transfer at the time of booking but I suggested he sign up to PayPal which he undertook to do. All in all - good value.

“A Fabulous Place To Stay”
Reviewed 15 August 2011 for a stay in August 2011

people found this review helpful

We arrived quite late on a hot Tuesday evening and were welcomed by a smiling Gad who very kindly provided us with some much needed cold water.
The apartment isn't large but was a perfect size for our family of 5. It is however in an amazing position and many attractions are easily walkable including the Old City/Kotel; Machane Yehuda; Mea Sharim; and it is on top of Ben Yehuda Street.
Our time in Jerusalem was amazing - from where we did a great deal of touring. I asked Gad about getting to the Dead Sea by bus. He recommended I hire a car. He was right!
Check in and check out were easy.
This is a lovely place to stay, is reasonably priced and comes highly recommended.
Thanks Gad.

“Fabulous Position!!”
Reviewed 26 July 2011 for a stay in June 2011

I stayed in this apartment for three nights with my daughter and her husband as well as my parents who are both in their eighties. It was beautifully clean and very comfortable and very close to all sorts of shops, restaurants and supermarkets.Although the lift is rather small it is not really a problem. We did not experience any outside noise during our stay and it was wonderful to go downstairs and be amongst all the evening activities.We found Gad and Caroline to be very friendly and we enjoyed meeting them and hearing about their life in Israel

“Perfectly located spacious apartment in central Jerusalem, good value”
Reviewed 23 May 2011 for a stay in August 2010

people found this review helpful

We had four days in Jerusalem and wanted to be centrally located as we had a lot of things to see and do. The 'Ben Yehuda For You' (BY4U) apartment was perfect. Conveniently located in Ben Hillel Street, it was only about 15 feet away from Ben Yehuda Mall.

The building itself was pretty run down, the lift was very small (the apartment is on the fourth floor) and there is no concierge or even a foyer, BUT, the apartment itself was clean and spacious - not luxurious by any means - but very functional. It had a central living, dining area with a small galley kitchen off to one side. The master-bedroom had a large kingsize bed (that had ample storage under it) and it had a small balcony opening off it that looked out over the street. The second bedroom had two comfortable single bunk beds (there was also another pullout sofa bed in the lounge area if needed). The bathroom was a bit weird - sort of a seventies bachelor pad throwback thing going - with fully mirrored walls all the way round, a too large spabath with shower, handbasin and toilet, but it all worked and it was clean. There was a second separate toilet as well.

We were met at the apartment by Gad, the owner, who was very friendly (we had phoned him when we arrived at the airport to tell him when we would be there - and he gave us good advice on where to tell the Taxi driver to drop us off - corner Ben Hillel and Shamay Streets, only a short walk from there to the apartment). Gad showed us around the apartment and gave us our keys, he also let me know where to park the hire car I was picking up the following day - cheap carpark in Shamay St only about 50ft from the apartment.

Being centrally located meant that there were restaurants and shops right outside and it was a less than ten minute walk to Mamilla Mall or the Old City - about the same time to go to the markets. All in all, good value for money.
