The rooms were beautiful and very clean. Balconies had a fantastic view. Can't beat the location if you're wanting to go to the Holy Sepulchre or anywhere in the Old City because it's right across from the New Gate. We love the Wine & Cheese restaurant on the 4th floor, have eaten there almost every time we go to Jerusalem. The staff was very nice and accommodating. I wish the rooms had been actually adjoining with a door. The balconies are easy to climb over to get through the window door so it's kind of adjoining, but if you have kids and want them to have their own room, it's not like there's a door connecting rooms next to each other. Sound echoes through the hallways and it smelled like cigarette smoke in the hallways. There are no fridges in the rooms, but the receptionist was nice enough to let me store milk for my baby in the fridge behind the desk while I was there.
Personal service, the customer service surpassed my expectations. The state of the bathroom.
it is on herat of the oldu city doesnt have tv in rooms
The location of the Hashimi Hostel was excellent. Staff were very friendly and happily changed our room when we complained that the shower did not work. The rooftop lounge area was a real treat overlooking the Temple Mount. The hotel foyer and entrance is well renovated, however, the rooms need maintenance and up-dating to make it a 3 star hotel. Breakfast was very ordinary - need fresh fruit on offer.
breakfast bedsheets need changing
Restaurant on the roof, lobbyis very cosy i awarded hotel receptionist that i arrive lately night, but i feel, that they didn't expect me
Excellent location, only a few minutes walking to the best known sites of Jerusalem. The hotel is absolutely alcohol-free, so you can be sure that people next door will be noisy and cause you any discomfort. Though located in an excellent place (center of Jerusalem's Old City), the hotel is not easy to reach, especially with heavy luggage, since streets are overcrowded during daytime. We were irritated with old blankets and old bed linen used in the hotel.
good helpfull staff yes. no tv and very small rooms
Nothing, it was not a clean place every thing was dirty I did not like anithing al Hashimi Hotel, it was a bad experience at all
It was located directly in the old city and was so convient to everything in old city.
Friendliness of the staff and their knowledge of local info. The shower could have been better; it was a tricle of water, and the drains did not flow well. I experienced this in two different rooms there. TVs in the rooms would be nice as well.
the Petra hostel is one of the most spectacular hostels ,my grandfather had told me of his adventures here in Israel when he was young that he stayed here and had such an amazing time,i feel my stay here brought me closer to my family ,amazing place
very practical and best location, just good for back packers, students, person looking for just a place to sleep. Not very clean (also due to lot of construction/repair work around), no parking close by, provides just basic needs.
We were amazed at how good of a time we had after reading some negative reviews. The manager, Hazem, is a class act, helpful, and true to his word. We had good showers, decent breakfast, the World Cup on TV, and a nice room for a good price. I would recommend this place and would certainly stay here again. The area is a trip, with a fruit stand at the entrance, do yourself a favor and get some fruit to go along with your breakfast. Jerusalem is an amazing city, we had a great time!
nothing, it was terrible! no service, teribble hygineic standard, breakfast und breakfastroom indiscutable, poor relation price- what you get, much better austrian hospice-less price than petra hostel!, petra hostel must be closed!
HI, I really enjoyed my time at petra hostel (after booking I was aprehensive after finding some bad reviews).My dorm was clean and had a view of Jerusalem- amazing to wake up to! The bathroom was in good condition and staff were very friendly and helpful. The place was brimming with character, and the roof is amazing. For a budget pick this has to be it: charctetr, amazing location (straddling old and new city), friendly service and good traveler vibe. I'm not used to hostels but i love petra
Location, Room with balcony, Great views! The staff were very friendly. If this place were renovated and turned into a nice/ small hotel it would be awesome. They said that the room would have an air conditioner...it did not. We had to keep windows open all night and the streets are very loud. I sweated a lot that night...rough night of sleep. Breakfast was bad...I lost my appetite when I saw it. Glad we only had to stay one night. What we call "roughin it".
