Grand Court Hotel
Travel Blogs from Jerusalem
These next few days were a bit of a blur to me. So much history – biblical history, Middle East history, Jewish history, political history. Churches and more churches – holy sites and more holy sites. Heaps to come back to and reflect on.
Old Jerusalem was incredible – 1 square km with 30,000 Jews living there. The …
Before loading the bus a few of us said goodbye to Bambi. It was the last day we would see him. He had taken care of us every day and hauled us many miles. He was also gracious enough to say he enjoyed our singing, which we did on long rides whenever we had breaks from Yuval's history lessons. We began our day in the new part of Jerusalem where …
Monday morning we started our day touring the Tomb of Samuel. It is the traditional burial site of the biblical Hebrew prophet Samuel, atop a steep hill and situated to the north of the Jerusalem neighborhood of Ramot. We climbed steep stairs to see Jerusalem from the top of the mosque built in the 18th century. It was formerly a church. The tomb …
Sunday morning after breakfast our group made our way to the Mount of Olives to view "golden" Jerusalem. Mount of Olives, Dominus Flevit, is the traditional site where Jesus wept over Jerusalem before His triumphal entry. (Luke 19:41-44) In antiquity, the Mount was covered with olive trees but the Romans cut most of them down to build a rampart for …
Before breakfast we placed our luggage outside our units at the kibbutz so the gentleman could load the bus for our departure. By this time our group had bonded quite well and we were all enjoying our new friendships. I knew only 3 people in the tour group before we left Atlanta 5 days ago, but now I was traveling with 25 good friends, including …

Historical Traveler Reviews Grand Court Hotel Jerusalem
I went with my church in November 2005 to see the Holy Land. The service we received at the Grand Court Hotel in Jerusalem was delightful. The attendants were polite, professional, and industrious. I enjoyed the food selections and the atmosphere.
I speak 4 languages so the amount of people at the tables afforded me an opportunity to
get to know others and learn. Children laughing is music to me and the piano
upstairs gives character to a well run hotel. I did not want to leave. I will most surely stay there again.
Best service at the grand court jerusalem
I just stayed at the Grond Court for three nights in may 2006.
The service was outstanding, the room was very nice, everything was attractive. The dinner buffet was fabulous. Dessert was out of this world.
My room was clean and comfortable, and the selection of TV channels was the best I saw during my week in Israel.
I found the people very friendly and polite.
I was traveling with a tour group of 35 people, and on all counts the Grond Court served us well.
I will always request this hotel for my groups while in Jerusalem.
I would highly recommend it to all travelers in all categories.
Vacations in luxury Grand Court Hotel Jerusalem hotels is supposed to be a pleasure?
Absolutely detested this place!
This hotel would never have passed Board of Health requirements at home! The food was not kept at the proper temperature-hot food was lukewarm at best. There was not much variety. The service was horrendous. After asking for things 4 or 5 times, you might get what you requested. These were items that should have been in the room in the first place! The carpeting in the hallway near our room looked as if a flood had occurred. This was a new hotel? The mezzuzah on our door had already come off and never got replaced despite our repeated requests.
I will be sure to advise anyone I know that is going to Israel to stay elsewhere!
The food was bad news. The hot food was cold and the cold food was not cold. It was not family oriented and was a haven for tour groups. People stayed for only 1 or 2 nights. We booked for 10 days and left for another hotel after 3. The room was for 3 adults and each day we got supplies for 2. I will never stay at that hotel again. The other hotel we stayed at was 100 percent better.
Great location, good hotel
Stayed here with several Christian Pilgrim groups in late Dec 05 and Jan 06. Reception and dining room staff worked hard to accommodate requests, assist group with check-in, store luggage, etc. Rooms are spacious and facilities good. Meals are buffet so sometimes you had to wait "your turn" to get a particular item, but with patience it works well. Groups are given assigned tables nightly for dinner so this helps with seating as persons arrive into the dining room.
This location is FANTASTIC. Easy access to the Old City, Garden Tomb, shopping in East Jerusalem shops, near the historical American Colony where you should go for tea or a meal so see the beautiful property and gardens.
Will continue to use with Pilgrim groups in the future.
As a tour leader, I was talked into staying at the Grand Court Hotel largely becuase it is new. That was about all it had going for it in my opinion. The service was marginal, the food was not good (although there were many choices), and the rooms had problems. There may have been another reason my tour operators put us there, and that is that the prices are low. My guess is that is why the hotel was totally booked while I discovered other hotels during the same time period with far fewer customers.
if you are looking for a luxirious hotel and want to pay a decent price thats the place to go.
we just stayed at the grand court hotel in jerusalem me and my wife and enjoyed any moment .
