After a week of somewhat rough travelling, this apartment was a dream. It was clean, spacious and bright. The kitchen is large and well-stocked, the view very pretty, and the living room comfortable. There are two full bathrooms, which is an amazing luxury. Beds comfortable, TV works well. The neighborhood was very pretty and had food shopping and banks nearby. We were actually stranded for a couple of days by wind, rain and snow, and it was no hardship at all in that apartment. In fact, we went and played in the snow in the little park across the street--it was a paradise of trees and snow, and the whole neighborhood came out to play. It is a little far from sights and restaurants, so once there in the afternoon, we didn't go out again. We took a cab when we wanted to go anywhere (had to call for one). There are plenty of maps, and instructions, and guidebooks available for renters, and the manager of the apartment was exceptionally responsive and helpful. I would absolutely recommend this property to renters (or buyers for that matter)

Recommended for: Age 55+, people with disabilities, romantic getaway, families with young children, girls getaway.
As advertised: clean, quiet and well maintained apartment! Property manager is also very attentive and on top of apartment conditions. easy walk up/or elevator, parking, across the street from the park, convenient to co-op shopping center (I still miss my morning bareka and coffee), walk (maybe 10 minutes) to Emek Refaim, and two blocks from bus to the city (for those unfamiliar - car or bus is needed to get to tourist attractions from this location). Only issue in the summer is that there can be noise in the park at night but this was not a major issue - apt does have central air so if there is a problem windows can be closed. I highly recommend this apartment for those who want to be in this part of the city.

We loved having our own "home" right across from the San Simon Park and monastery. Our balcony overlooked the park, the rooms were spacious, and the kosher kitchen well-appointed. The apt is one flight up, but has an elevator with Shabbat mode. Two full bathrooms came in handy too. There are at least two grocery stores in walking distance, as well as a great felafel stand and an even better bakery that opens at 4 a.m.! We walked to lively Emek Refaim shopping/eating district (15 min), and one day we walked all the way to the Old City -- a fairly easy 45-min-long journey -- and back! Other days it was easy to catch buses to just about anywhere in the city, no need for a car, but there is a dedicated parking spot right under the apartment. It's really easier to bus than drive, the streets are all narrow and one-way and confusing, but once you learn the bus stops it's a 5-min walk in almost any direction to fast clean buses, and if you are a "senior" as we are, the buses are 3.2 shekels, or about $1 a ride. Double that for younger folk. Renting an apartment in Jerusalem is a totally different experience than staying in a hotel. It's more like being part of Israel, part of society. Not only that, within 5 min of the house there are at least a dozen synagogues -- from Reform/Reconstructionist to black hat Yeshiva. About two min away are three nice Modern Orthodox shuls with many English speakers. We spent many sunny afternoons in the shady park watching picnickers, yoga stretchers and dog walkers, sitting on the many benches, climbing on the "high-tech" kid toys and generally having a lovely mellow time. We look forward to a return visit to this apartment!
