Comfortable clean bedroom in a quiet garden apartment right in the center of Jerusalem, in between two green parks. A double bed and a couch can fit three if needed. You are welcome to enjoy my equipped kitchen and relaxing garden, and of course my enjoyment in meeting new people.
My place has a unique Bermuda triangle effect leaving it cool and comfortable despite Israeli heat weather (really! I can't explain it). In addition to that, it is extremely quite for a center apartment, hidden right between two nice green gardens. I also enjoy the fact that I have my own garden/back yard. I've planted some flowers and tea herbs over there. I also have a compost pit.
The apartment and your room is comfortable for two people but there is another sofa and mattresses in case needed for more people. The double bed is not as big as a normal double bed, I have plans on getting a bigger one soon.
You may help yourself to any of the coffee and tea I have.
My house will be your home for the time you are here so make yourself comfortable. The kitchen is fully equipped, besides a dishwasher, and open for use with plenty of grocery stores around the area if you would like to cook.
Clothes washer is available for guests in the bathroom. You can dry your clothes outside on the line.
Usually I will be present, welcoming the guests. I really enjoy meeting new people. I like cooking and having shared meals if guests are interested. Of course I occasionally like going out for a drink or showing the city with guests.
Guests are a few minutes walk from all around in the center.
7 min walk to the old city.
5 min to city tram in main Jaffa st.
7 min to the main market (Mahane Yehuda Market).
5 min walk to prime-minister Netanyahu's house (for who ever is interested in bonding with him)
City tram passes 5 min walk away from the apartment, a wide range of city buses are passing right next to the apartment, and Jerusalem's central bus station (buses leaving to the rest of the country) is 10 min walk away.
What an excellent place and host. The place is perfectly situated close to the city centre, and also really close to the old city. A lot of great places to eat and buy stuff nearby. Omer himself is a wonderful, generous, kind and thoughtful host. I highly recommend people to check this out!
it was a good stay in Omers flat in Jerusalem....the room was big enough, really quiet, only the bed was a bit small for us elderly people....and it matters little in light (which is determined in summer well)...Omer is a very friendly and polite host and he gave us many, many recommendations where to go and where and what to (email hidden)eat!!!...We would recommend him for everyone...Irina & Jens
Great location for old city and for shopping on Ben Yehuda and Makhane market. The bed was very comfortable and the room was very congenial with 2 love seats and an armoire for clothes & suitcase. Kitchen & bathroom were ok. This is an older building, so do not expect granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances. The price was very reasonable. The room was also very quiet. Omer was out of town while I was there, although I met him the very last night. He provided nice soaps and shampoos. Very nice guy. He left lots of maps and guides about the city and Israel in the room.
My first use of AirBNB - I got lucky - A very nice man. Happy to assist at all times in relation to visiting places of significance and interest to see whilst touring Israel. In living at Omer's place I felt like a local - I did not feel like a tourist - I came and went as I pleased and hung out at the local trendy cafes which are in close proximity to his place and from his location was easily able to find my way around - so so easy and central ... I did not want to leave but I had to ... I cooked if I did not feel like going out and it was great to have this base to come home to each night - better than an empty hotel room. Omer chats if you want to and if you want space - respects that. A great host, a nice honest genuine guy wanting everyone to enjoy his country of birth and see its beauty through his eyes. If I return I will be back here for sure. Room is good, bed if comfy and everything is functional - that is what I wanted and this is how it is... I would definitely return to Omer's place if I came back to Israel.
All the previous comments describe exactly what it is to stay at Omer's place : lovely, very clean and really close to everything! Omer is a fantastic person and is worth being known. He is very generous: despite being busy, he took time to show me around Jerusalem and share a glass of mulled wine. My Jerusalem experience would not have been the same without Omer! Thank you for everything :)
Omer is a really good host - friendly and a fun guy. The room is comfortable and in a really good location. Handy to really good shops and all public transport. Everything is in walking distance - if you don't feel like it , the public train is close by.
We would have no hesitation in staying with Omer again.
I had a nice time at Omer’s. He was very busy but took the time to sit and talk with me when I arrived and made me feel at home. His place is quite basic, but he keeps it clean. It’s surprisingly quiet. Best of all, the apartment is very central – a quick 10-15 minute walk to the old city through the park, same for Mahane Yehuda market, and faster yet to the downtown. Omer was very helpful in assisting me whenever I couldn’t figure out the Israeli system. And he’s a good conversationalist. I will certainly stay with him again!
omer is an extraordinary person. was very busy for work, he was sorry not to have time for me. ė left for work. I had a whole house to myself. Omer recommend it for ever.
Omer is kind and friendly. His place is minimal but very comfortable. Omer makes it that way with his easy-going manner! The apartment is in a great location within walking distance to the Old City, and it's right next to a big public park. You can take the tram from the Central bus station on Jaffa Road and then walk to Omer's place but be sure to bring a map so you can see where to go.
This is a great place to stay to have a DIY tour of Jerusalem! Omer is great.
Omar's flat is perfect: near to the old town, in a nice neighborhood, the place is clean, spacious and with a great terrace.
Omar is a welcoming guy, he helped us to find what we needed and he advised us some great spots in Jerusalem.
I really recommend Omar's place!
