Get the authentic ambience of Jerusalem in this exceptional penthouse apartment located in the heart of the German Colony, one of the most beautiful and well-known neighborhoods in the center of the city. You will find yourself in a quiet corner of this bustling area filled with restaurants, cafes, pubs, shops and cultural places of interest. Public transportation from just around the corner will take you to any part of Jerusalem including the central bus station to.
The German Colony - Hebrew: המושבה הגרמנית, “HaMoshava HaGermanit” - received its name after its builders, members of the German Templer society, who settled in various parts of Israel in the second half of the 19th century and left their unique architectural fingerprints on the area. Today it is an up-scale dwelling area around Emek-Refaim-Boulevard, a popular entertainment center for locals and tourists, leading up to one of Jerusalems newest attractions: the former Jerusalem Railway station. The recent face-lift turned this memory-rich site into a fusion of history, culture, culinary pleasures modern art, music and a lot of fun for old and young. From there it’s just a few minute walk to the old city.
As part of the service I will personally provide you with maps, flyers, information sheets, brochures etc. about places off interests and events.

The 2 room rooftop apartment is equipped with all the necessary facilities, such as air condition for heat / chill, high speed wireless Wi-Fi FREE OF CHARGE, a fully equipped kitchen including stove, kettle, coffee, tea and even an oven and a fridge which gives you the ability to make your own meals and of course there will be fresh towels and fresh sheets waiting for you. In the summer, the huge roof top is a great place to catch a tan or simply enjoy it while eating breakfast, breathe the fresh cool air of the holy city night and relax under the stars. During your stay I will be happy to assist you with anything you might need: recommendations of tourist places, restaurants, bars, clubs, historical attractions, museums and more.

“It was a great pleasure to stay at Omer`s rooftop apartment”
Left on 03/16/2014 for a stay in March 2014 | A FlipKey verified reviewerReviewed Mar 16, 2014Stayed Mar 2014
The apartment was amazing and exceeded all expectations.
It was very comfortable - spacious for 4 persons, with excellent kitchen, great shower, strong water pressure, Strong Wifi, super comfy bedroom and mind blowing roof top terrace where you can rest, have coffee and breakfast, enjoy the sun and street view, etc. The neighborhood of German Colonies is very atmospheric and truly unique with lots of greenery, flowers, beautiful villas and nice people all around. I honestly believe this is the very best place to stay outside the Old City walls in Jerusalem.
My special respect and many thanks go to our host, Omer. You can't wish for a better host. communications with him were fast, clear and efficient. He left for us beer in the fridge as a welcome gift, he brought me some ice for my injured arm immediately as he noticed it and even ice-cream as a consolation... Thank you so much Omer for your unforgettable kindness and hearty hospitality! :)
I think staying in this apartment was my best experience with FlipKey so far. I cannot express how happy I was that I had eventually chosen this apartment to stay in Jerusalem, since while I enjoyed my trip to Israel overall, Omer's flat proved to be one of its most memorable highlights.
The only problem I had with Omer's apartment was sad feelings upon leaving it. If it's available for your dates - book it without any second thought. You might fall in love with it just as I did.
