Guestbook comments from the owner

Ganit, we wanted to let you know that we really enjoyed staying at your apartment. We were very comfortable. It was clean, well supplied and we loved the modern furnishings. We are hoping to come back to Jerusalem in 2016 and will definitely contact you. We hope to stay a little longer next time. We will also tell friends who are traveling to Israel about the apartment. We would also be happy to be a reference for you. I don’t recall the VRBO # for the apartment. If you will send it to me or the link, I will go online and add comments.

Todah, Sandy Sidorsky.

Excellent location. Loved the no stairs because everything else is a lot of steps!

Clean, no parking issues and good water pressure. Things you don't realize can aggravate you if they are not right.

This apartment works perfectly for two people. Within two blocks are grocery stores, bakeries, fruit markets, as well as a wonderful converted railway to walkway that takes you to the First Station. We walked to the Old City, Israel Museum, the Market - all very doable and very pleasant! Great bus service only two blocks away. Highly recommend!

My wife and had had the best time in this unit. It was high end with great amenities. We were extremely comfortable. There is plenty of street parking. We left the car in the same spot for 2 days with no problems. The apartment also close to three main streets that have everything you will need. There is also a 3 mile long old rail trail for running on the next street over that allowed me to jog in the morning. We highly recommends this place; it is a good value.

Pretty Studio in Bakka

  • 4 of 5

This studio apartment was exactly as advertised on VRBO. It is clean and all appliances are new. It is on the ground floor of the building which is convenient, but you need to keep your curtains closed so as not to have anyone looking in. The manager of the apartment was easy to deal with and available whenver we needed him, which was just for arrival and departure.

We enjoyed the convenience of being close to both Emek Refaim, and Derch Beit Lechem(DBL). There are lovely cafes on Derech Beit Lechem, and a fabulous falafel stand just a few blocks up on DBL near Yehuda.

The apartment is a bit small for two people if you are traveling with many bags and purchases accrued during the trip. We had to use the couch for some of our things although in reality we could have spent the time unpacking everything and putting it in the closets available in the apartment. Also, if you plan on having any one over, there are only two kitchen chairs so you can't really have any company.

There were enough dishes and silverware, but there are not two sets, so kashrut observence using the kitchen facilities can be a bit of a problem.

The price was very fair for the apartment.

Estupendo apartamento. Muy recomendable

  • 5 of 5

Se trata de un apartamento en pleno barrio de Bakah, una zona moderna y residencial de Jerusalén a pocos metros de multitud de restaurantes, tiendas y zonas verdes. Un lugar muy agradable para pasar unos días en la Ciudad Santa. EL apartamento es estupendo. preciosa decoración, muy limpio y cuidado, con una cama amplia y comodísima, wifi, TV satélite, cocina, aire acondicionado sistema purificador de agua... todo ello nuevo y en perfectas condiciones. El apartamento es ideal para una pareja, amplio y silencioso. Un lujo!
