We stayed 2 nights during Passover week just after Easter 2012. We had no trouble getting rooms beside each other: my wife and I in one, and my sister and 14 yr old daughter in another. The rooms were basic, e.g. no coffee maker, but clean and they have a safe and a little fridge which is very convenient. We falsely accused the staff of stealing my sister's Kindle, and the manager took us very seriously and got the head of security on the phone right away (it was the start of Passover II and he had gone home). He recommended we take a look in the safe and elsewhere: we found it under the bed. I was impressed with their professionalism. The old man mentioned in other reviews is occasionally in the lobby, but I can't imagine anyone being bothered by him. I got a free Jerusalem Post and International Herald Tribune in the lobby in the morning. Oddly, they need bigger sheets for the beds, but the beds were clean and comfortable. All the staff were very helpful. We bought tickets for the Passover II meal because although not religious we don't eat bread on that holiday and we didn't want to find and deal with a non-kosher restaurant that night. The dinner was very well attended and the food was good and the staff found us another table when we didn't like our assigned seats. The breakfasts are also good. Parking is limited and tight, but we got a space and left the car for our stay. The location, beside the YMCA and across from the King David Hotel is the best: an easy walk to the Old City and downtown and about 25 minute walk to Emek Raphaim St. - i.e. the trendy German colony. We definately will come back.
