Hotel is in great location in center of Jerusalem. It is closed to the Old city (5 minutes by walk), restaurants, markets, churches, walking street. Staff is friendly, flexible and helpful. Hotel is clean, you get free towels and linen.

נתן דער בעל הבית קוקט גיט נאך זיינער אורחים Great location and amazing service. Natan, the owner, is a fine guy who looked after me well. This is not a luxury five star hotel by any stretch but it is kept clean, the beds are big and comfortable, and the location is hard to match. As it is the center...

As I walked in this hotel I felt the hommy environment. My little cozy room was wonderful with great beds and AC and good service! I had my privacy and i felt just like in my own bed. As I told the guys, if I could I would become a member! Nothing like this cute hotel! Come here and enjoy!

This is a small cute hotel in the very centre of Jerusalem. It is close to the old city, walking streets, markets, restaurants, churches and mosques, antique sellers and various cafes. There is a tram outside the hotel and also a few buses just a short walk away. Like everyone who stayed here we love Eli and Nathan who host...

The hotel is very well located, very close to the old city, the market, bars, restaurants and the light rail. Rooms are a bit austere, but you will miss nothing you can't do without. I willl definitely return here when I visit Jerusalem again.

We spend there 5 nights and it was amazing! Cute little rooms, some with nice balconies. It's close to the old city and the market and with some nice bars in the streets around the hotel. Because of them it's a little bit noisy at night when you're outside on the balcony but inside with closed windows it's almost quiet....

For a start, ask for a balcony room. We are here now and we are loving it. Natan has been extremely helpful and hospitable. It's a great location but very basic. Jerusalem is expensive so this is a great budget choice. Close to the old city and plenty of choice for eating and site seeing. Sonya and Michael

We spend there one night. The location is amazing! close to the old city, the big market, and Jaffa street which is full with shops and coffee shops.. But the room smelled terrible from ciggaretes, and it was very noisy during because of the purly insolated windows.

I arrived in Jerusalem without a hotel and this was the closest to where I got off the bus. It has a great position on Jaffa Road and Ben Yehuda only 5-10 minutes walk to the Old City or Machane Yehuda and directly on the tram line. A bit downmarket for me but it was clean and comfortable with working...

Having a bit of experience of travelling, my friend and I looked for a comfortable, clean and reasonably priced hotel in the city centre. Hotel Kaplan met all our requirements.
