Wonderful place to stay, making our trip to Israel all the more enjoyable. We had an incredible balcony room with a view and we felt like we were staying with family at a luxury/boutique hotel. The breakfast buffet was nothing short of amazing!!!! We would love to stay again when we return. Spa staff was the only negative, but who...

A boutique style place, set in lovely gardens hence good for relaxing. The location is ok if you like walking to the main sights; the walk is up a small hill and not suitable for those with walking difficulties. My stay was marred by the awful service; I've not met ruder check-in staff. The two elderly guys were surly and...

One of the most beautiful places in Jerusalem overlooking the ancient city walls above the BenHinom valley... It's a very unique place but unfortunately mismanaged. They had given the wrong style of rooms, food was only ok and overall the maintenance of the place is troublesome. I want to say that they did compensate us properly but the sour taste...

All staff exceeded my expectations after reading negative comments prior to my arrival...except for spa staff. They seemed unwelcoming when I entered. The rest (front desk, security, kitchen/waiters and bell boys) were kind and helpful with any requests I made. The only disappointment is wait staff were offended by our prayers in the name of Jesus and they made it...

Thank you for your review and for having taken the time to write one. We were delighted with the heading of your review and even more with your intention of returning. However, in order that we may look into the matter that resulted in disappointment we would be grateful if you contacted us directly. Please ask for Shelly.

This is an old, tired hotel which is situated in lovely gardens facing the Old City across a deep valley. It is in south-east Jerusalem so that you either take a public bus or taxi to get to the Old City ..... otherwise do as we did, a major hike through some sketchy neighbourhoods to get up to the Zion...

We were sorry to read that you found the hotel old and tired and the location challenging. The Mount Zion is definitely not a North American style hotel and that is exactly why many tourists choose to stay here. They generally express their appreciation for the charm and atmosphere that the hotel exudes and are usually thrilled by its location.

Built into the side of the mountain, all rooms offer a great view of the walled city. The rear gardens are beautiful filed with flowers and relaxing areas. The typical Israeli buffet breakfast is great and a bonus is that you can squeeze your own fresh orange juice from the sweet large oranges provided. The hotel is located within walking...

We stayed in rooms in the Old Citadel part of the hotel and had glorious views from our balconies. Friendly, helpful staff, and an especial thanks to all those on the front desk who were so patient. A bonus is that one can walk to the Old City straight from the hotel.

We stayed for a couple nights in October. The room was comfortable and quiet. We were given an upgraded room with a wonderful view and new air conditioning controls. The carpet and furnishings could use an update but were clean. The pros are the character of the hotel , the magnificent grounds at the rear and beautiful pool, and the...

Warmth, charm, character...definitely NOT a cookie cutter hotel that could be anywhere in the world. This IS Jerusalem! Great staff, fabulous breakfasts...and the view...breathtaking !!! The Old City of Jerusalem beckons. Staff is friendly, professional and some even remember us from previous trips, which makes it feel even more like "our home away from home".
