The hotel has all the basic facilities, and its owner is a very nice person. One of the main - and finest - streets of Jerusalem where it is located can be noisy sometimes, and this is the only shortcoming I can consider as a worth mention. In short: a real bargain. 5 stars in my 'relative' scale.

The location is really good. Close to the busy part of Jerusalem and many stores nearby. On the Friday night that we arrived, it was very quiet and still. Nothing happening on the streets. That changed on the Saturday night! All of a sudden there was singing on the streets, all the shops opened and hordes of people walked everywhere....

The hotel owner met us with a fresh fruit plate and a great map of the area. He was open to questions, gave great suggestions, and helped with money exchange even. We loved being in the center of many places to visit. There were 4 of us in the room with just space enough to walk around the beds, but...

The Kaplan Hotel is a great place to stay in Jerusalem. It's small and basic but clean and friendly and you just cannot beat the location. It's right on Zion Square in the heart of downtown West Jerusalem just steps from dozens of bars, cafes, restaurants streetlife etc. And it's only a ten minute walk to the Old City in...

Very nice hotel owner, when we first arrived in the hotel, he gave us city map and told us information about Jerusalem, very nice person! Location is excellent, only 4 tram stops to the Central Bus Station, and only 10-15 mins walking distance from the old city, the surrounding is clean and safe.

A good place to stay for a couple of days when you are in Jeruzalem. It is not the most luxurious hotel but it is definitely worth the money. Kaplan hotel lies at the famous Yaffo street, in walking distance to a lot of bars, restaurants, snackbars and very important: in walking distance to the old city. The only disadvantage...

The hotel is situated just out side the old city, it is about 15 mins walk to get there. The walk to the city takes you along Jaffa Street right to Jaffa Gate, you can't go wrong. The service from Natan was 2nd to none making you feel very welcome, and he took time to explain what to do and...
