The hotel had good location, 10 minutes walk to the Damascus gate. The hotel was across the street from the American Colony. The min-market was nearby to get snacks and drinks.
They try to sell you more expensive private tours. There are 3 large hotels nearby, with similar prices, to consider.
Staff are nice and offer you sightseeing tours. Spacious room. walking distance to Damascus Gate of Old City.
Located in East Jerusalem, bit different from modern West Jerusalem. bit far from pedestrian strips of shoppings and restaurants. few furnitures in the room are broken and should be replaced. I think next time, I would rather stay at St. George cathedral's Pilgrim Guest House across the street for lower price.
The staff was very kind and helpful and the suite was very compfortable.
One of the guys in the reception was not so kind, if I asked him an adress twice, he got mad. The rest of the staff was very kind.
The wonderful quiet of the room, the friendlness of the staff at the breakfast - very nice and helpful. Desk help was adequate. After a few proddings, staff was responsive to any changes/repairs that we suggested. The bathroom was very clean, though small. Having a TV in the living room and bedroom was nice, and the small balcony allowed us to sit and enjoy the outside. Location is across from The American Colony Hotel, a great place for a drink and occasional dinner or snack. Also, reliable cab stand there.
The living room furniture needs to be upgraded or replaced - it was worn and useless. In particular, the couch was extremely uncomfortable. The breakfasts were monotonous - it was an OK selection of foods, but always the same.There should be more attention to the detals in the lobby - plants and flowers should be fresher, watered. The doors inside our room - # 24 - were bizaare. The lighting in the living and bedrooms was inadequate - for example, dim lights in ceiling were useless. If upgraded and better organized, we would recommend this hotel - not highly, but very good.
Close to the Old City. Staff worked well with you to arrange tours, etc. Bery helpful. Large rooms for family.
Worst Breakfast ever. Guy who ran the breakfast was rude and inconsiderate. Outdated, but not a distractor.
Addar Hotel is within walking distance to the Old City of Jerusalem along Nablus Road. The Garden tomb is very near and Damascus gate is around 10 minutes away. There is plenty of free parking behind the hotel. The staff is warm and friendly - especially if you are warm and friendly. A few words in Arabic don’t hurt either =) The staff gave good restaurant recommendations and driving directions. I don’t understand about the people who have complained about the staff. I have stayed here twice and find the staff to be a high point of the establishment. The beds are comfortable and linens clean (although they have a strange sized blanket/comforter that doesn’t seem to quite fit – although honestly we didn’t need it). Hot water is plentiful and water pressure is quite strong. The “jacuzzi” feature is a bit old and suspicious looking and I didn’t use it. Be aware there is no shower curtain – this will not bother people who have travelled extensively in Europe and the Middle East but may surprise some Americans. Each room has a large living area and one or two balconies. There is a fridge that is stocked with a few snack items – but there is plenty of room for your own stuff. There is also an electric stove top and kettle but you must provide your own tea. We found English language channels on our TV – if you are having trouble just ask the staff. For me Addar is a good “budget” option in an overpriced town. It’s a little frayed around the edges, but if that doesn’t bother you then this is a perfect option. If you are used to 4 or 5 stars don’t stay here and complain about a hotel that is not trying to cater to you.
The feel of the rooms is a bit old, although they are quite spacious. The hairdryer unit is a bit old and my wife wasn’t keen on it at first … but it served her needs. There is not an iron in the room, however, the staff brought one within a few minutes of our asking. Also, even though a electric kettle is provided, there are no tea bags or Nescafe. I wonder if you asked nicely if you might be able to get some though. One inconvenience on our last stay was that we asked for a baby cot and even though we were assured 2x that it was in the room … it was not. We checked in very late and the housekeeping staff (who were responsible) had gone home. However, the desk clerk called 2 people (including the manager) to try to straighten things out for us. It seemed that the cot was put in the wrong room. The clerk proceeded to check empty rooms for it – but did not turn it up. He was very apologetic as was the manager who straightened things out the next day. In the end we were able to make things work with some cushions and sheets and it really didn’t matter. The breakfast might be a bit light by American standards, but it is typical for a Middle East budget or mid-range hotel. Labaneh, hummus, baba ghanouj, pita, toast, jam, butter, cheese, cucumbers, tomatoes, breakfast bolgna, breakfast cereal, Nescafe, and instant juice. A decent hotel a step above the true budget places in Jerusalem – but definitely in the mid-range category. If finer details and a big breakfast matter to you spend 1.5-3x as much and go somewhere else. Otherwise enjoy Addar for what it is.
I liked the oriental charm of the decor and the friendliness of the staff. The room was lovely. It's a 'warmer' experience than some of the larger city centre hotels. Perhaps I would rather be nearer the centre but it's only a five minute cab ride or 25 minutes walk. The other guests were also friendly; because it's a boutique hotel you get to feel intimate with your suuroundings and pe0ople seem more relaxrd and friendly as a result
There were a couple of very polite employees. But these were just making the rest of the staff look even more rude ....
The free parking become unavailable as there were no more places... But according to the concierge 20$ extra could ...generate some free space for us !!!!!! Ripe-off The facilities were old and poorly maintained and cleanness was not that obvious. The aircondioning was not working so we had trouble sleeping at night. Toilet half broken. Breakfast poor and if u asked for a coffee (apart form the american one) u had to pay. They woke up us at 8.45 in the morning to do the room, and as we asked them to come later, they never did the room!!!!!
Convenient location of the hotel, close to the old town. The area is quiet and calm. Clean, comfortable rooms / number. Homelike atmosphere. Friendly, sympathetic peronal. Attentive, polite waiters.
Staff did not know Russian.
The hotel is clean and the staff very friendly and helpful - especially Mahmoud that served us breakfast. He went out of his way to be friendly as well as professional and to make our stay there memorable - thank you Mahmoud! The location is good as it is within walking distance from Damascus Gate and very quiet. It is also situated very close to the train lines which simplifies traveling. The Wifi worked without problem. I would definitely recommend this hotel for an enjoyable stay.
The room was pretty niceand there was jaccuzi in the bathroom. The night shift receptionist, in contrary to the day time one, was absolutely lovely ;)
I was not impressed with the day time receptionist, Ibrahim. He was rude, seemed to ignore us and made us wait for check in, even though there were no other guests and it was well passed check in time. He was not helpful and informative either.
Excellent position close by city center, spacious rooms, very kind staff
Poor breakfast, run-down infrastructure
Addar rooms are like a small apartments, with a kitchenet they are very good for a long stay so you can feel at home .
Very good location, close to Damascus Gate. Nice decor. Warm. Kind staff. Comfortable room.
Wifi very weak in some rooms. Cleanliness standard slightly below desirable level. Breakfast too basic. Not very good in sugestions out of the hotel services.
The price and the location were quite good. It was a short walk to the Old City which was convenient. The breakfast staff were very friendly and helpful. Having a separate living area and bedroom was nice.
Our queen sized bed had a twin sized comforter which did not extend the full width - very strange and uncomfortable. While the weather was mild, our fifth floor room seemed to have some form of heat which could not be turned off. Leaving the doors open during the night was necessary, but the street noise was bothersome. We had emailed them about reserving a private parking spot for us, but they had not done so when we arrived and we had to wait while they looked up our email about this before they finally agreed to provide it at no cost. The bathtub drain did not close completely. The last night we were also short towels since they took them away and did not replace them adequately.
