The Jerusalem Golden Walls Hotel is located in the center of the Holy City of Jerusalem; just outside the northern city walls, between Damascus and Herod's Gates. Our hotel is within walking distance from the most religious, historic and cultural centers. The Golden Walls Hotel is a family-owned business managed by the Pilgrims Palace Hotels Ltd. It was built in 1964 and run by the late Dr. Rasheed Nashashibi till 1983. It was then known as the Pilgrims Palace Hotel. The Hotel has undergone major renovations throughout the last 10 years. It was expanded twice. A new building was added to the existing to make the total number of rooms 120. However, authenticity and quality services are our core values.

Our tour party of 19 stayed here for 6 nights because it was very close to the walls round Jerusalem. We were welcomed with a soft drink, which was very refreshing and a meal even though we didn't arrive until late in the evening.
We ate breakfast and dinner in the restaurant and all the food was excellent. There was a wide range of enticing buffet dishes with enough variation to ensure that we didn't get fed up. The dining room gets a bit cramped when the hotel is full. There was traditional dancing as entertainment one evening during our stay.
The hotel is a mid range hotel which offers reasonably priced accommodation without excessive luxury. We stayed in room 303 which was reasonably well equipped with an in-room safe, a small fridge, tea and coffee making facilities and enough storage space and hangers. There were no bedside lights controlled by switches reachable from the bed which meant having to get out of bed to switch them off - not a major problem but a nuisance. Several of our party stayed in other rooms which had a separate shower. It may be that room 303 was on the list for refurbishment in the future.
There is no iron or ironing board in the room, but an ironing service is available, presumably for a fee although I didn't check this.
The reason why I've only awarded 4 stars is because every time we used the shower which was in the bath, water leaked down the side of the bath to soak the floor despite our careful arrangement of the shower curtain. The water was leaking from somewhere else. Despite reporting this to the front desk on 3 separate occasions, nothing was done. Judging by the water stained wooden architrave near the bath, we weren't the first people to have this problem.

Stayed 3 nights here, it was superb, from checking in, and being brought a cold glass of home made lemonade, to walking through the light and airy reception to out room (138)
A triple room , for only myself and Tanya, it was fresh and clean and with aircon, heating and mini fridge and kettle in the room. Walk in double shower and toiletries, and a safe in the room At the bar there was a large iced water dispenser to help yourself to.
The view from the window was of the old walls, great atmosphere and you could hear the calls to prayer, the hotel is situated a couple of mins walk to the Damascus gate and the herod gate..into the old city
Breakfast was a feast, so much choice and great quality food, caters for everyone. Cant praise the staff enough, we were leaving at 5.30 am, the front desk arranged breakfast boxes for us and to have tea and coffee available for us
Would recommend this hotel

The seven days we spent in this hotel were absolutely wonderful. We managed to secure connecting rooms so we were within close proximity to our young children. Each room was clean, tastefully furnished, comfortable and we were lucky to have a spectacular view of the walls of the old city. The variety at meal times was great and allowed us to sample some of the local cuisine. The staff were always attentive and helpful. The location of the hotel is perfect for exploring the key sites of Jerusalem. Would definitely recommend and would definitely return!

McCabe had warned us about the steps to reception as my sister is fairly disabled but it was fine. We had a nice room overlooking the walls of the old city , comfortable beds and very unusually and a nice bonus a very long bath , not your usual hotel child’s size one you can barely sit in ! Great for a soak after long days of walking in the cold. If being super fussy the shower / water tap will need replacing as loose but it didn’t bother us . The food was delicious and so much of it. We loved the strict times food was served as felt it gave us all great guidelines , no hanging about. It is quite crowded at mealtimes but wonderful people watching as so many differing nationalities and religions. The hotel is busy bustling and beautifully placed for exploring Jerusalem. We loved the call to prayer as there is a mosque next door and some moaned about the bus station also near by. We just said get over it we are in a busy city centre . The only thing that was preventing deep sleep the first two nights were the feral cats ! Over all a great stay and can’t wait to return.

The ideal hotel for a visit to the old city of Jerusalem. You can walk to all the major sites in less than twenty minutes. Staff are attentive and the new chef produces excellent meals. Rooms are renovated to a high standard and you can relax on the rooftop terrace overlooking the ancient walls. A home from home and a rare gem of a hotel

Room had good size. We had 4 beds that were very comfortable. The magnifying mirror in the bathroom was a bonus. The linen and the towels were white and clean. The towels were changed everyday. Breakfast was very good with a lot of choices - salads, cheese, eggs, juices, good coffee, tea, fruits. Everything that you could eat in the morning was there. The food was fresh and well presented. The hotel and reception are at the first floor. No elevator until there. You need to climb with your luggage up. The windows were keeping the noise out of the room. The mini bar was very small. The closet was very spacious.
All the people working in the hotel were very nice and ready to help you any way you needed. The hotel has all the space nicely decorated. The terrace on the roof was very beautiful. We did not try the dinner but I think that matches the quality of breakfast. It cost about 150 NIS/person. The bus terminal is around the corner. For Mount of Olives - bus no 255/275 can be taken from there. You need to purchase an electronic wallet to put on it at least 30 NIS. The card cost 5 NIS and can be purchased from a store near by. You can use it on any means of public transport. We took the train from Ben Gourion until to Yitzhak Navon and it was perfect- 20 minutes ride. If you do not heavy luggage you can take tram 1. From Damascus gate to the hotel there are about 450 m. But now the tram lines are being built in the area and the side walks are a little bit dusty.

We stayed here in April 2023. for 1 week. This is an excellent modern hotel located very close to the Old City in between Herod's Gate and Damascus Gate. The walk to the Western Wall, Church of Holy Sepulchre and Al Aqsa mosque takes about 10-12 minutes.
The buffet breakfast provides a wide variety of items and the rooms and public areas are very clean.
They have double and triple rooms and for us managed to place a mattress in a triple room to make it a quad. The reception is on the first floor and has a large seating area as well as a non alcoholic bar.
On the 3rd floor is a rooftop terrace with a glass enclosed dining area.
Altogether an excellent and pleasant stay.

We arrived at the hotel as the last drop in a shared taxi (minibus), as we drew up the driver said "You have the best hotel" and I must say he was right. The position is ideal, a few minutes walk to Damascus Gate and the Old City and a few minutes more to Herod's Gate. You get a lovely view of Damascus Gate from the Hotel's rooftop terrace. The food is excellent; we had dinner in the hotel the evening we arrived, there was a wide variety of very good quality. Breakfast next morning was of a similar high quality, again with an amazing range. I heard another guest say to a friend "This is our best breakfast place" and I can see why. The staff are friendly and helpful, always keen to help. On the day of our departure we received an email saying our flight had been cancelled; staff did everything they could to help us resolve the situation. The hotel is comfortable and pleasant and tries to be ecofriendly having just installed a more energy efficient hot water system (plenty of hot water). Altogether a very enjoyable stay and we would definitely go again. Alan

We stayed here twice on a coach tour - once at the start and once at the end. Rooms overlooking the busy road are noisy but OK with earplugs. The second room was on the first floor adjacent to the stairs overlooking the back, meaning there was noise from groups in the bar area but no road noise. However, people did not say up late. The room size was good for a city hotel. The location is excellent. Buffet-style food was acceptable although, like the other hotels we stayed in, hot dishes were not very hot.
