The condo is great with large exterior private patio with access onto a park. Jordan and Anne will go the extra mile to make sure you are comfortable with your stay.

Great location

  • 3 of 5

The location was excellent, and the parking was ideal, the facility also was good. A bit inconvenient for three people because of the bathroom located off the bedroom. My main complaint and suggestion to Anne is to replace the tattered bedding and towels provided. They are old, faded, and not what I expected for the price paid for this accommodation. Also to have access to the bedding one must raise the whole mattress and wood frame of the bed to reach the articles stored in the area under the bed. I could not lift it myself, fortunately my nephew was with me and was able to discover this hidden area and lift the bed so we could gather the bedding needed for the living room couch. On arrival the apt. was fair as far as cleanliness, the window sills were covered with dust and cob webs in the corners of the rooms. The patio was strewn with dead leaves which was not a pleasant sight on arrival. I would stay here again and would recommend it to others with the assurance that the bedding and towels are new and fresh and the rooms are fresh and cleaned. We did pay a cleaning fee and it would be worth it if the rooms and patio were sparkling on arrival. I have stayed in many different locations in Jerusalem, I would rate this good for location and parking and average for comfort, cleanliness, and price.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

This is very convenient to walk to the Old City and other places around Jerusalem. The bus is not far away and there is a grocery store and restaurants (although expensive) close by. It had the basic things like dish soap, clothes soap, etc... which was appreciated.

The apartment was adequate for 2 people..I could not imagine having 4. The only thing it could use is a coffee pot or French press.

It could also have used a better cleaning..the carport in the middle of the room was full of dirt and the fridge had not been wiped down inside.

A great place to stay

Very nice place

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time exploring Jerusalem from this nice clean apartment. 20 mins walk from Old City, and good grocery store nearby. Parking for our rental car was important because parking is not easy close to the Old City. The bathroom is off the bedroom which is good to know if you have someone sleeping on the pullout in the living room. The host was away but the friend he had meet us was very helpful. I would definitely stay there again.

Wonderful place in Abu Tur

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in this apartment for almost 2 months, and I found it to be a perfect place, close to everyhting ithin walking distance and in a beautiful area, full of history. I appreciated how accomodating the host was, yet always respecting my privacy. Extra bonus is the cute nearby park and the First Station being just a 3 minute walk away, perfect for grabbing a bite or a drink.
