About Benyamin

We moved to Israel 16 years ago and lived in Tel Aviv before coming to Jerusalem. We immediately loved the German Colony area, probably one of the most beautiful part of Jerusalem, full of trees and flowers, lovely streets and with typical style houses.

Benyamin purchased this apartment in 2003

Why Benyamin chose Emek Refaim

We wanted a house closed to Emek Refaim, yet very quiet, with an open outlook.

What makes this apartment unique

The location is definitely one of its unique benefits, as well as the spacious living room and the balcony where you'll love having breakfasts...

The best place to stay in Jerusalem

  • 5 of 5

This wonderfully light and beautiful home is in the heart of the German Colony. The location is fantastic and the unit is very attractive and reasonably priced. It is the perfect location to walk to the Old City, Ben Yehuda Street, the Promenade and Jaffa Street. It is surrounded by beautiful gardens and the birds sing every morning. The owner is most responsive and has prepared a wonderful set of materials to make your visit special. You won't regret renting this unit and will return again in the future.

Sweet Masaryk, we already miss you...

  • 5 of 5

From the pictures and reviews online we were already quite confident about this venue but we were pleasantly surprised to find that it exceeded our expectations. Benyamin was very helpful both before arrival and during our stay and the apartment was immaculately clean and very homey. Just sitting on the porch in the cool hours of early Jerusalem morning made our stay worthwhile. For anyone looking to fully experience Jerusalem - with its quiet residential streets right up against its vibrant thoroughfares, this is your place.

Cozy apartment in great neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

This apartment provided everything we needed to feel like a local in Jerusalem for a week. It was very clean and convenient to everything. The little balcony provided a great place for breakfast each morning. We bought croissants and challah from the bakery down the street! We also walked up to the restaurants and playground at First Station on Shabbat. We were surprised at how many places were open and close to us. Benyamin was a great host and answered all our questions quickly. We would definitely stay again.

Although it is close to a main road, it is very quiet. Access to everything (markets, cafes, buses, taxis) was easy. The 18 bus came frequently for direct trips to the Old City and Mehane Yehuda markets. We could even walk back from Mt Zion and the Old City in about 30 minutes. Coming from Tel Aviv, we found it easy to take the train to Jerusalem. The 18 bus from Jerusalem Malha station stops at the top of the street. Otherwise a taxi just takes 15 min.

Great apartment, clean, convenient and very quiet. It was exactly as pictured. We'll be back next time we return to Israel.

Awesome apartment and location

  • 5 of 5

This apartment and it's location made our trip so much more enjoyable. The apartment is sunny, with cross-breezes in the evening, and if it ever gets too hot during the day the air conditioning works great. The location is steps off of Emek Refaim- groceries, restaurants, Jerusalem Pool, the best little shops. And a half block in the opposite direction is the HaRakevet (walkway- greenspace) where my kids could run and there are no cars. There are 2 paths one for walking one for biking. They lead to First Station ( 10 min walk) which is awesome- restaurants, shops, free events, rides and playhouse for kids. Very well done. Across from First Station is the public park- also very nice with a huge skateboard/scooter park. First Station also has a FREE shuttle to the Old City. So you never have to look for parking! This is really the place to be!

Excellent location

  • 4 of 5

Our family of five stayed in the apartment for 5 nights. The location is excellent and easy walking distance to everything. Number of great restaurants and shops in the area. Benyamin was very nice and accommodating - answered all of our questions. Washer and dryer was helpful to have as well. There are small grocery stores right downstairs and also across the street. The apartment is great in an unbeatable location...
