Let's Get Practical
From this location you can walk to the city centre very easily in about 5 minutes. The buses 13 and 18 run by directly in front of the Hebrew Union College to areas further north of the city centre and to the central bus station but you can really walk and see many things on the way. You can walk around the corner to Keren Hayesod St in front of the King Solomon hotel and get one of 8 or 10 buses to the city centre or the central bus station. The old city is best reached through the Mamilla Mall to the Jaffa Gate or skirt the outer wall to the Zion Gate for the Tomb of David, The City of David and into the Armenian Quarter. All bank branches offer ATMs for cash withdrawals in shekels at the most current rates of exchange. There is an ATM to the left of the entrance to the HUC near the many car rental offices if you prefer to withdraw USD. The car rentals are great but check rates for non Israeli citizens before arriving. You can usually get a better deal on rentals by booking from the US branches, i.e., Hertz or Budget. Cabs are available all day and all night passing by on the streets. Point your index finger to the opposite side of the street to hail a cab in Israel. Decide on the rates before you enter or ask them to use the meter.
Additional amenities include: sofabed, shower, iron & ironing board, hairdryer, shabbes elevator, elevator, bed linen & towels, double bed, entrance security camera syste, king bed, pots & pans, bathtub, intercom / door phone, bunk beds....Read more
Left on 01/03/2012 for a stay in December 2011 | Happy Camper CoupleReviewed Jan 3, 2012Stayed Dec 2011
Though simple, this apt is an ideal launching pad for visiting Jerusalem: the majority of areas such as Geula, Meir Sharim, Ben Yehuda St, the Old City, Sharei Chesed... are all in easy walking distance. There's no need for a car, altho there is a parking lot very nearby where we paid 60 skels a day until we returned our car.
The views from the windows and the balcony are marvelous; you watch Jerusalem, in all its various garbs and ethnicities, walking by. And the lack of cars is a big plus on Jaffo. Just pedestrians and the trams, plus a few bikes and motobikes. Great. Fyi: We did not prepare meals in the apt. There are many good places to eat nearby. We did do laundry and the machine worked well. The Bathroom is clean and confortable, with plenty of hot water. And now the best for last: Yochanan, the apt manager, is unbelievably helpful without being the least bit intrusive. He arranged his schedule to ours, allowing us to check in at 10 PM and out at 8 PM. He even stood in the rain with us until Nesher (the van service) picked us up. And he was always there (by phone) with good suggestions for touring or just hanging out. We stayed a week.
