Why Paul chose Old City

It was love at first sight! As soon as we saw the spectacular ancient domes, we knew this was an apartment like no other.

What makes this apartment unique

Eco living:

When you stay at our vacation suite, there's no need to worry about your carbon footprint. The green construction began five hundred years ago — the one-to-two-meter-thick walls maintain temperature better than any modern technology! We did our best to follow that example when we renovated the bedrooms, bathrooms, and kitchen.

Here is a list of the suite's Eco credentials:

•Low-energy air conditioning throughout the apartment. (DC Inverter technology.)

•LED lighting.

•Underfloor heating. Rather than blast heat from a small vent near the ceiling, underfloor heating systems allow the heat to rise from the bottom up, without ever reaching a high temperature.

•Double-glazed insulated windows.

•Natural-gas water heating.

•Energy-efficient appliances.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed in Rova Arches in early July during a 2 week trip to Israel. The property and particularly, the location, cannot be beat!

LOCATION: Within 2 minutes you can walk to the Kotel, the Arab Shuk, the Tower of David, etc. There is a cafe just next to the property, on the Hurva Synagogue square, where you can people watch for hours. We found it very easy to walk to the Jaffa Gate (maybe 3 minutes) when we had plans outside of the old city. Mamilla Mall is also a 3 minute walk if you feel the need. There are numerous places to shop, eat (both a quick shawarma or falafel, or a sit down dinner) within a 5 minute walk.

PROPERTY: We were 2 couples, a 69 year old, and a 13 year old boy. There was plenty of room as there is an open floor plan with plenty of space to stretch out. The apartment is spacious, beautifully appointed, clean, and has anything you might need to make the stay enjoyable.

SERVICE: Aurelie, the manager, could not have been nicer and more accommodating. Bagels, juice and fresh fruit awaited us, which was really a very nice touch after hours of traveling. There were fresh flowers on the table. There was a box of teas and espresso available throughout the stay.

We travelled to several locations on this visit, and I have been to Israel many times. I will say, without reservation, that this is the nicest, most welcoming apartment we have ever stayed in. I would (and will) recommend this to all of my friends, and will certainly stay there again.

Beautiful property, great location in the heart of the old city

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 6 days. The home is extremely nice and located in the Jewish quarter about 5 min walks to the Church of the Holy Seplucher and the Western Wall. Paul the property manager was very helpful and even arranged for us to be picked up and dropped off at the airport. I would definitely stay here again and highly recommend this place.

Wonderful apartment in a great location

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was wonderful. The management team was incredibly efficient and helpful and they made accessing the apartment a pleasure. The apartment had everything we could have wanted. The air conditioning was strong, the fixtures new and everything worked well. The location was also great. It was right in the middle of everything. Overall, a great place.

Luxurious old city accommodations

  • 5 of 5

A tremendous experience staying at the Rova Arches. A thoroughly modern apartment in the middle of the Jewish Quarter. Walking distance to virtually every antiquity you might want to see, yet away from the hustle and cars of the city outside the walls. Spotless and well appointed with excellent air conditioning, this apartment will serve you well as a base from which to explore Jerusalem.

The location was in square and close to many eating places.

Accommodations were comfortable. Didn't use cooking facility except for breakfast and coffee.
