Today is Easter Monday, and for Jews the week-long Passover celebration is still going on until tomorrow. Our hotel seems to be on "lockdown" regarding anything that could affect the hotel's ritual purity; for instance, we observe signs in the lobby warning people not to bring in any food from the outside, tables at the bar and lobby are covered …
Today we rolled into Jerusalem to begin our 5 night stay here. We began with a sweeping overview of the city as seen from the Hebrew University on Mt. Scopis. From there, we descended to the Dominus Flevitt (the traditional site where Jesus wept for the city of Jerusalem) and then to the Garden of Gethsemane. We then continued our walk to the …
Day 2 began with an aborted attempt to climb atop the Temple Mount due to the insanely long line of tourists. So, our intrepid guide postponed the visit and instead lead us to the traditional site of Caiphas's house and the potential place where Jesus was held the night before his execution. From there we visited the traditional site of the Upper …
Day 3 was a free day. We slept in and then made our way to the Jewish, Christian, Arab, and Armenian quarters for some shopping. Nothing terribly noteworthy occurred with the exception of a quick visit to a shop in the Jewish quarter known as Shorashim. We visited this shop 7 years ago when we came to Israel the first time and really wanted to …
Our final day in Israel began with a trip to the top of the Temple Mount. Last time we were here, we were unable to do this so it was a huge treat to get to. Once on top, we got a close-up view of the Al Aqsa mosque, the Dome of the Rock, the Golden Gate from the inside, and the traditional site of David's threshing floor where the temple was …

Historical Traveler Reviews Olive Tree Hotel Jerusalem
I recently stayed at the Olive Tree as part of a tour group. The hotel is modern and clean. It is situated across the street from the American Colony Hotel and only a short walk to the Old City. Our meals were buffet, but we found the quality and variety to be very good. Unlike the previous re-viewer's experience, there were numerous desserts and we felt obliged to try too many of them! The only problem we had with the hotel was the staff. The restaurant help was abrupt and unfriendly. The front desk staff were worse. Several times what we were told was completely untrue and their rudeness was unbelievable for hotel personnel.
Ich war kürzlich mit einer Reisegruppe unterwegs und wir kamen im Olive Tree unter. Das Hotel ist modern und sauber. Es liegt auf der anderen Straßenseite vom American Colony Hotel und bis in die Altstadt ist es nur ein kurzer Spaziergang. Wir haben vom Buffet gegessen und die Qualität und Vielfalt waren unserer Meinung nach gut. Im Gegensatz zum Vorredner fanden wir jede Menge Desserts und wir fühlten uns verpflichtet, so viele wie nur möglich zu probieren!
Wir hatten nur ein Problem mit den Angestellten. Im Restaurant war man kurz ab und unfreundlich. Am Empfang war es noch schlimmer. Mehrfach bekamen wir falsche Informationen und die Unfreundlichkeit kennt man von Hotelangestellten so gar nicht.
No volveré a llevar allí a mis grupos
Ya había estado en el hotel en varias ocasiones con mis grupos de los Estados Unidos. Nuestro último viaje fue bastante mal. Me refiero especialmente a la comida. En un par de ocasiones no tuvimos postre después de la cena, solo nos ofrecieron dos tipos de fruta. Todo en el comedor estaba muy limitado. Nos cambiaron dos veces de habitación y en noviembre hacía muchísimo calor. Incluso el personal de recepción y algunos empleados no fueron tan amables como solían serlo... Ha pasado algo que creo que debe solucionarse. Moraleja: no estuvimos nada contentos. Llevaré a mi próximo grupo a otro lugar en 2007. GL. El Paso, Texas.
Will not take my groups there again !
I had stayed there before with my groups from the US. On this last trip it was pretty bad. Especially the food. At dinner at least a couple of times there was no dessert, just 2 types of fruit. Everything in the dinning room was limited. They switched our rooms twice and in November they were really hot. Even the front desk and some employees weren't as nice as before... Some thing has happened and I think its needs fixing... Bottom line we were not to happy...Next group I take in 2007 we will stay some were else..... GL El paso, Texas
Ich war im Dezember 2005 für drei Nächte im Olive Tree. Der Service war ausgezeichnet, das Zimmer sehr schön, insgesamt war alles dort sehr schön. Das Büfett zum Abendessen war fabelhaft, der Nachttisch ein Traum. Mein Zimmer war sauber und komfortabel, die Auswahl an Sendern im Fernseher die beste während meines einwöchigen Aufenthalts in Israel - nicht dass ich die ganze Zeit nur vor dem Fernseher saß. Es war aber ganz schön, mit Nachrichten auf dem neuesten Stand gebracht zu werden. Ich war mit einer Reisegruppe von 43 Leuten unterwegs und das Olive Tree hat uns alle gut versorgt. Ich kann es nur jedem sehr empfehlen.
Vom Olive Tree begeistert
Im September 2005 war ich zum zweiten Mal mit meiner Gruppe im Olive Tree. Der Service dort ist exzellent, das Essen ausgezeichnet. Das ist übrigens auch die Meinung vom Rest der Gruppe. Ich werde mit meinen Gruppen zukünftig immer dort absteigen, wenn ich in Jerusalem bin.
Wonderful Place to Stay
I stayed at the Olive Tree for three nights in December 2005. 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 - not that I watched TV very much. But it was good to hear some current news from the States.
I was traveling with a tour group of 43 people, and on all counts the Olive Tree served us well. I would highly recommend it to all travelers in all categories.
