Clean, massive bed, excellent air con (needed in Israel in August!) and a 10 min walk to the old city.
I was coming out of the shower and the manager and cleaner came into my room without knocking which was a bit embarrassing. They did apologise though.
Everything. A dirty and seedy hotel that hasn’t seen any investment for many many years. We even had to change our room because the floor carpet smelled. If you want to save some money on the Jerusalem hotel market, don’t try it here.
Great location right near Ben Yehuda St. Close to Jaffa Gate. Can walk almost everywhere. Good breakfast included. Great value!
Location. Short walk to restuarants and things to do. Nearby parking. (THATS IT)
A LOT! In the middle of renovations and did not warn. Elevator slow. They were working (ripping up - drilling - cutting) on the room 2 doors down. UNBELIEVEABLE.
We arrived at Shani hotel in Jerusalem on Friday 19th of July 2019 at 14.00. No one has warned us about ongoing construction work on the external wall of the hotel building. It was shabby in the reception room and we noticed some coonstruction workers here and there while main door was locked, but we presumed that they would finish their work shortly due to weekend/Shabbat was about to begin. We had to wait until 15.00 for check-in. The room/family suit was far away from what we booked and pictures shown on our confimation. It was dusty and shabby. Needs definetely renovation. But we could live with it. The nightmare started when we returned to the hotel at 11. pm and there was a terrible noise caused by drilling in the hotell wall from the huge crane truck. When we complained at the reception desk they told us it should cease in one hour. Unfortunately the horrible noise went on all night long until 4. am with drilling, followed by cleaning of the mess outside the hotel until 4.45. I have been in Jerusalem many times, but never experienced construction work during the night in the hotel before. And it was Shabbat night in Jerusalem !! I was totaly exhausted. At the check-out we made a complain and asked for refund of the first overnighting (the second night was also noisy, but we could not check-out after the 1.st night since they have charged my Visa for 2 nights in advance). Then reception manager told me that he had to talk to the hotel owner. I left my contact with e-mail address and phone nbr, but no one has ever contacted me or any other of our goup of 5 persons.
