Small, cheap and cheerful, the staff were very friendly and helpful.
In a great location and you can go up to the roof on a night to get some absolutely stunning photographs of Jerusalem and the surrounding areas.

In the afternoon we went to investigate Israel's 'Burma Road' which was created in 1948 in Israel's War of Independence. Jerusalem had been cut off by the Arabs, and supply trucks trying to bring food to Jerusalem were destroyed. Things were getting desperate. The army managed to ...
