Historical Zion Hotel in Jerusalem
What you have to understand is the significance of the history of this 250 year old hotel. If you are looking for something fancy and elegant, this is not the place for you. Those expensive places are a dime a dozen. However, if you are looking for authentic Israeli hotel in the heart of downtown Jerusalem, and something affordable, this is an amazing place to stay. The staff were wonderful.
I thought I would not like that there was no elevator because I have trouble with my knees, but the steps are short, so I could take small steps up. The staff was quick to help with luggage, and were all extremely friendly. Oh, sorry, you asked what I didn't like. It was such a wonderful experience, I don't have any complaints. Oh wait, they could have brewed coffee in the morning instead of providing instant.
Everything else was horrible
The location is amazing, right in the center of the pedestrian mall in downtown Jerusalem. The rooms were basic and clean. The staff were very nice.
We kept the window open at night and it was a bit noisy at night.
Night times fairly noisy from street shops below
The staff was very helpful and accommodating.
Bad smell in the room. Also, the refrigerator was very noisy and there was no elevator.
Location in a pedestrian zone.
Need for pay in advance for the entire stay. Poor breakfast. Cigarette smoke during the breakfast caused by some useless important looking person in a suite (probably a hotel manager).
clean room and good breakfast
Entrance and access stairs not clean
Friendly staff and excellent location. For the budget price paid, found it excellent.
the staff was ery friendly and helpful.. However the plsce was being refurbished so it was quite a mess in some places.Not having an elevator also makes it hard. The location is excellent as is the price
