TravelPod Member ReviewsLegacy Hotel Jerusalem
Just came back from a 6-night stay. Hotel facilities are very nice, breakfast good and location fantastic. Just be aware walls are thin and you can hear everything in the hall and in rooms next to you. Could also hear the bar outside (the hotel bar) blasting music. Staff were very responsive to this and managed the noise well but just didn't like having to call the front desk 1-2 times a day to manage some noise issue. Besides that we enjoyed our stay.

When I asked him for directions, he first asked me if the museum was open on Saturdays. Yes, that's why I was headed there. At that point, he told me (politely) that he wouldn't give me directions because he couldn't enable me spending money on the Sabbath. I ...
... Jerusalem is a city that has never been stable. It has been destroyed and rebuilt at least twenty-five times. Currently,the city has a population of about 850,000 people. The city by religion is 62% Jew, 35% Muslims, and 2% Christian. Both Israelis and Muslims claim Jerusalem as their capitol, but that claim is not recognized by any country. The town is divided by religious sect and they do not get along. People will not (can not) cross a street into ...
... a muslim family hold the keys and they unlock and lock the place every day.The place is massive. It could be the biggest building I have ever been into, by volume. The ceiling is soo high. Inside there is a stone that everyone wanted to touch and pray to so I guess it is where Jesus was layed to rest. There is also a small "building" and people were lining up for miles to get in so I guess that was the crypt. It is very ...
