Reviewed 30 March 2012

Clean rooms and great location in the heart of Jerusalem near the Jaffa gate. Breakfast buffet was adequate - good selection, but the food in the heating trays had stayed there just a bit too long. The rooms were comfortable though not necessarily roomy. Polite service that were very helpful. All in all, a positive experience and a reasonable place to stay.

We did not book a hotel as we were driving around country and did not know when we will get to Jerusalem. We called a lot of hotels after returning the car before we got to this one (Surprising given this is right opposite Hertz). Spoke with a girl (did not get her name - sorry) at front desk. She offered a choice that was not cheap but worked out really well for us as we also had 2 kids and we need early check in and late checkout.

Hotel is conveniently located near Jaffa Gate (Opposite the pricey for no reason King David hotel).

Wir verbrachten drei Nächte im Eldan, Flug nach Tel Aviv, dann Sherut direkt zum Hotel. Der Empfang war herzlich, wir bekamen ein schönes Zimmer (nach hinten) und viele gute Ratschläge - ein Super-Tipp war die Freilichtaufführung am Abend bei der Stadtmauer. Eine grosse Überraschung war das Frühstück - das Buffet war ausgesprochen vielfältig und geschmacklich top, mit frisch zubereiteten Gerichten, die täglich variierten. Ausserdem gab es noch eine supergünstigen Deall mit Rabatt für das Mietauto für unsere Fahr ans Tote Meer inkludierte.

Stayed at the Eldan with a group from UK . Lobby , restaurant and rooms very dated . Had problem with electricity in our room but on informing reception it got sorted
with minimum fuss ( 2 key cards
In the electricity slot meant for one ) and it worked .
Breakfast at Eldan a bit boring compared to our hotel in Netanya , why do Israeli hotels provide a ghastly orange and lemon squash , not even a juice , let alone a fresh one !
Room clean , skinny bath , no decent toiletries . Bed fine , our room had nice view of fire escape !
Main reason to stay here is it's position , opposite the king David
hotel, 5 mins walk to Mamilla Mall , worth going to if only for the magnificent sculptures on sale .
Walk through the mall and you arrive at Jaffa gate , entrance to Old City .
Staff don't get red rosettes for friendliness but they were pleasant
enough ... Overall Eldan is place to sleep in , not to spend the day in ,
It's Ok , and that's it basically ..

We saw this hotel in the upper end section of the Lonely Planet, and figured that it would be quite nice. However, upon arrival they had lost our booking, and the two girls behind the desk were beyond rude about it, as if it was our fault. We then returned back there hours later to the room they claimed was 'one of their biggest' as it was for 3 adults, and saw the room in which we could not even lay out suitcases out in. It was also dark, dirty and extremely depressing to be in. We ended up paying for the first night but leaving and finding other accommodation - I would not recommend to anyone who appreciates good service and a nice atmosphere
