As said also by previous reviewers, the hotel is located in the very heart of Jerusalem, only 10/15 minutes walk from the old city.
Rooms are basic but clean, and the price is fair enough compared to other similar hotels (which are also more distant).
What I really appreciated was the kindness and availability of the hotel owner, who gave us good suggestions about the city and was really fun and gentle with us.
Definitely I’ll be back in this place!

The owner is a great guy, the rooms are all new due to refurbishment been done lately, the location is the best i have seen in Jerusalem RIGHT IN THE CITY CENTER, 3 minutes walk from the tram line and all the bars and restaurants, and the wifi works perfect!

Spent three happy nights at the Kaplan Hotel. Eli is very friendly and helpful. He can answer all question and has wonderful suggestions of better/cheaper alternatives. The rooms are clean and functional. Wifi is good and the location would be difficult to beat. This hotel has charm and is extremely good value for those travellers looking for a place to get their heads down.

Ideally located just off Yafo St near Yafo Centre lightrail stop, just 1km or so from the Old City. Very friendly helpful owner. Rooms are a good size for a budget hotel, and recently renovated, so all was fresh and new. Good room wifi- no problems with a skype call.

Room Tip: Rooms on the east side have floral window boxes, and overlook HaHavatzelet St- you can also see Yafo...

Very nice and helpful owner/manager, perfect location close to the Old City and Mahane Yehuda Market. Beds were very comfortable, wifi fast and AC worked very well.

Bathroom needs a small renovation, otherwise everything was good,
