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.
Be warned though if you're wanting Alcohol the hotel doesn't serve it, neither does any of the local shops as it is in a Muslim area.

This morning eight of us from the group still left at the college went for a walk along the top of the wall. We lined up to buy tickets at 16 NIS each when the guy said they offered a pensioner discount. So even without having my Seniors Card to show I got a 50% discount! Most of us were quite chuffed! It was ...
... around the easy-to-find triangle of streets, Aubrea, Lindsay, and I chose to pool funds with another group and try Kosher pizza for the first time. We had black and green olives, onions, tomato, mozzarella cheese, and mushrooms on our pizza. It was a delicious break in the middle of the day! We swung by a juice bar and a gelato shop on the way back to the meeting spot. I tried passion-fruit gelato and thoroughly enjoyed it.
Our next stop was our ...
