A Little House in Bakah
Ranked #32 of 101 Hotels in Jerusalem
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 14 September 2011

Location is fair in a mostly residential area. Rooms are very small, but nice and clean.
Breakfast in the adjoining restaurant is nice but not extensive. It is a decent walk to
any attractions such as the Old City. Average hotel, probably can do better unless you
want to be in that area

I found the pictures of the room a little misleading. Don't get me wrong, it's a clean hotel, but the rooms are much older than they look. Other than that, from this hotel, you're in walking distance to the Old City and you're near bus route, if you can read Hebrew that is. It's also in walking distance of a tiny grocery store as well.

Can't beat the location. The staff there was very friendly and they speak English which really does help. Wi-Fi was available for free too.

I would gvie it 5 stars but the restaraunt next to it was quite pricy. But I do plan on going back here when I return to Israel and I recomend it to anyone.

Room Tip: Bring lots of money, Jerusalem is not cheap. The rooms here are adequate, don't expect HDTV'...

Some people thrive on a city's noise, traffic and energy. For the budget traveller who visits Jerusalem but who doesn't want to endure the noise, this is the place. Located outside the city, at the edge of Jerusalem's up-and-coming trendy neighborhood of Bakah, it's a little oasis. The adjacent restaurant and patio are great for relaxing after pounding the pavement of Jerusalem. As a jogger I was thrilled with nearby "trails" (the bike path that splits Bakah with the German Colony; Yehuda St. simply going East turns into a path that borders the "Peace Forest" and offers extraordinary views. That jog will go past the UN headquarters, and UN staff stay at Little House frequently, adding to the Intl. feel. Thriving and vibrant streets Beith Lechem and Emek Refaim are in walking distance. You can walk to the old city if you're in good condition, or take a taxi or bus. My only issue with this place is that (and as per other posters) the building's plumbing is in serious need of an upgrade and consequently some rooms' bathrooms smell like mold. I eventually had to change rooms as a result.

Room Tip: Travel during non-peak season!

It's a nice place to stay. Good service, clean and comfortable rooms, good location (though you'd better get a car, because is quite far away from the main Jerusalem attractions), but... they could serve a better breakfast. The food was not good, neither the service at dining room (which was not a real dining room, but a dirty and dark corner at the end of the neighbor bar)

Shalom Ladies,
What looked really bad was the bad paintwork. The painter had not used masking tape, and consequently there was lots of paint on the stone and windows. It looks awful, and it was the first thing that I noticed in the entrance.
The building has character and could look attractive, but the finish was very poor.
What a pity, as it looks very third world.
In the restaurant, the chrome, paper tissue containers on the tables were filthy, and had not been cleaned in years. We would have eaten there, but looking at the paper tissue containers was frightening.
Basically, the hotel needs to employ a professional, from abroad, who really knows how to run a hotel.

Dear Guest,

While we take our guests feedback and comments seriously, I find your comment a bit odd.
The two small things that bothered you were a few drops of paint on a window and a paper dispenser.

Our hotel is located in a beautiful Ottoman building which gives it a historical charm.
We paint the building very often, therefore sometimes there might be a few drops of paint on a stone.
It is only due to the high maintenance of the building.

Regarding the napkin dispenser at the restaurant, I agree that it should be clean daily.

I simply find it hard to believe that these two minor things made your stay unpleasant.
Our rooms at the hotel are clean, the restaurant servers great food and we have a helpful staff that I'm sure would've be glad to assist you.

Best Regards,
Oded Niv, Owner
