Jerusalem Hotels: 134 reviews and 154 photos

Great Palestinian-run hotel located near the Damascus Gate to the Old City of Jerusalem. The hotel is an old Arab villa with only 14 rooms for rent. Stone walls, marble floors inside, attentive, helpful, pleasant management, and a very good restaurant/bar on the premises. Non-smoking rooms available. We stayed three nights, 10-12 April, 2006, during the time leading up to Passover. Were I to go again, I would not look any further than this hotel. Plus, on tap they have a local Palestinian-brewed beer, Taybeh. What a clincher!

Unique Qualities: I like hotels with character, and this one has character. If you're searching for a run-of-the-mill, chain hotel with white-walls and bland character, look somewhere else. Otherwise, this place comes highly recommended.
