We stayed a the Olive Tree as a part of our tour package so the question of value is not applicable - I don't know the price. Overall the stay was unremarkable. We weren't there much as our tours usually left by 7:30 and returned after five. The hotel staff was not real friendy and was not forthcoming when I went to the front desk to pay for my internet access. Seems their rates and access are one day at a time. You have to pay a daily rate and unused minutes expire within 24 hours. You also have to use the access code within 24 hours of paying the fee.
The hotel is the least of the three on the block on which it sits. It appears a few years old and will be needing an update soon, but it is in good condition. The rooms are a little small by US standards, but comparable to other hotels we used in Israel. The bath is tiny. My wife and I had to alternate in the mornings. Whkie our room overlloked the street on the sixth floor, street noise was no issue. We also did not notice much hall noise and there was nothing from the room above or next door. I really hated the way they made the bed - 2 twin beds shoved together and sheeted seperately. This may be fine for friends, but not for couples. Also, the sheets and blankets were too short for the bed. I remade the bed each evening so the sheet would at least reach my chin.
If I go back to the area I will probably look at other options.
