"Petra, Yerushalayim from the roof" Petra Hotel & Hostel Tip by dankata

Petra Hotel & Hostel, Jerusalem: 148 reviews and 2 photos

One of the places wher the cheaper neans the better. If you rent an appartment, you may have all the comfort of a soft bed (and casual sex probably), but if you set your sleeping bag on the roof you'll enjoy the marvelous view of Yerushalayim at night, or in the morning or whenever you're there. The people around you will come from such distant places, you'll be amazed. Because not all the crowds that go to the global tourist spots go there. It's a different kind of crowd. You'll see.
