True home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

We spent three weeks in this apartment and it felt like home. Apartment is very large and comfortable. Owners thought of every detail starting from very cozy couch in the living room, large table in the dining room, very comfortable beds and very well equipped kitchen. Perfect location, close to shops , playgrounds and places to eat out. We were able to walk to Kotel with our 4 little children. We will be back!

Gem of an apartment

  • 5 of 5

Over the years my wife and I have stayed in many apartments in Jerusalem-- in Rehavia, Baka, and the

German Colony-- and in many ways, this apartment was the most comfortable and easiest to stay in.

Not the fanciest, but the most comfortable. The location of the apartment could not be better. The apartment is large, very well appointed, and-- what makes all the difference-- Tzvi and Gladys, the owner and manager, supply guests not only with the basics but the small things that make staying in the apartment so easy-- shampoo in the bathrooms, loads of toilet paper, coffee, sugar, the Israeli equivalent of Sweet and Low, a havdalah candle and besomim box, even a small bottle of grape juice. Tzvi and Gladys are extremely responsive-- we had problems with the TV set, and they had the box replaced within two days. As previous guests have stated, my only hesitation in writing this review is the fear that it will make booking the place more difficult in the future. Very strongly recommended.

German Colony Gem

  • 5 of 5

The hardest part about writing this review is our concern that it will make it more difficult for us to book a return visit!

We spent 3 months in this apartment while on sabbatical in Israel and couldn't have been happier. The apartment is conveniently located near Emek Refaim, the Rakevet, the Takana, and shopping, dining, learning, and davening opportunities galore. The owner is attentive to every need and close to immediately responsive when issues come up. The apartment is clean, comfortable, stocked and set-up in a very thoughtful and functional way. And the building is quiet and well-tended. We plan to come back and you will too!

Perfect!

Everything about this apartment was perfect from the incredible location to the well equipped kosher kitchen to all the space available for entertaining. We would stay here again in a heartbeat.

A home away from home

  • 5 of 5

My family of 4 (parents and 2 teenagers) had a wonderful stay in this apartment over the Passover vacation. The location could not be better, but more importantly the apartment is so clean, well maintained and beautifully managed that I would choose to stay here anytime because I know that my family's expectations will be met. The apartment is stocked with anything you could need, the bedrooms are spacious and, we were able to entertain guests over the holiday because the kosher kitchen was so well supplied. It was truly a home away from home. We have stayed in other apartment rentals in Jerusalem before and this was by far the best.

Great Rental in the German Colony

  • 5 of 5

The best recommendation I can give is that we are return visitors; we are renting this apartment for another month long stay in 2015 and I rented it for a week for my kids when they were in Jerusalem in May. The apartment is exactly as advertised and the owner, who lives nearby, is quick to respond if there is a problem. In fact, he checks in from time to time to make sure that everything is ok. The kosher kitchen is well equipped (particularly for meat) and we entertained 16 on shabbat. The owner is attentive to detail and thoughtfully stocks the apartment with living items like toilet tissue, paper towels, detergent and tin foil—something not all landlords do. The apartment, which easily sleeps 6, is two blocks from Emek Refaim, and we had great restaurants and bakeries less than 5 minutes away. Downtown Jerusalem is a 20 minute walk. The apartment is on the first floor and there is no elevator, but the staircase is wide and the 12 steps are easy. We have rented other apartments in Jerusalem and much prefer this one. If you want a glossy apartment, this apartment is not for you. If you want a comfortable, usable apartment that is perfectly situated, and where you can make yourself at home, this is the place.
