About this listing
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.
Interaction with Guests
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.
We love Omer's apartment and his little garden. He is nice and warm, though he is busy in his working.
I spent 6 days at Omer's apartment and felt very comfortable with the spacious room. The location of the apartment is great to explore both sides of Jerusalem - the Old City but also the modern parts. Most sights are just a walk away.
Omer is a polite and smart guy. It was always a pleasure for me to talk with him.
This room was in a perfect location, allowing me to walk everywhere in Jerusalem. It was also walking distance to the Central Bus Station, allowing me to take day trips while using Jerusalem as my base. My host was very helpful, answering any questions I had about my adventures and helping with arrangements.
Enjoyed my stay. I liked the room. It was perfectly located-easy to get to from the bus station (I took a cab with ease) and only a 15 minute walk to Jaffa Gate. Omer was very easy to talk to. He welcomed me with flowers and we had a coffee and chatted the day I arrived. He also communicated with me several times prior to my stay to make sure I knew how to get there and was also quick to respond to my questions. I would recommend this place.
Местоположение - это главное и, наверное, единственное преимущество этой квартиры. Отсюда легко попасть в любую часть города. Омер - отличный парень с очаровательной улыбкой.
Но, честно говоря, всё это не стоит запрошенных денег. Или может в Израиле другие представления о комфортном жилье. Так называемый садик перед домом запущен и запылен, скорее напоминает свалку ненужных вещей. Канализация работает с перебоями, общая чистота тоже оставляет желать лучшего. Короче, это подвальное помещение, оборудованное для жизни самыми простыми средствами без особого старания. Бельё, подушки, полотенца тоже видавшие виды. В общем особо в эту комнату не вкладывались. Но аура у Омера действительно добрая, он приветливый хозяин. Если не планируете долго там оставаться, для спокойного ночлега вполне годится.
The host Omer was very welcoming! No problems at all. The room was clean, quiet, and provided my wife and I with a good night's sleep.
I stayed with Omer for over a week and enjoyed every minute of it. From the roomy accommodations to his warm and welcoming spirit I felt right at home. His apartment is nicely furnished and the kitchen lacks nothing. Having a washing machine available was an added bonus. His location is ideal for walking to the city center, Israel Museum, Old City, or to the many shops and dining establishments in his area. He gave me tips on everything from where to get the best local food to finding a reputable hair stylist. During my stay with Omer he was always available to answer my questions or engage in casual conversation. I am so thankful that I found his room available and hope to stay with him again on a future trip to Jerusalem. Thank you for a wonderful visit, Omer.

About the Host, Omer
SO, hey, I'm Omer. I’m a 29 years old film maker from Israel. Just came back from a long trip through South America and the states. I have always been drawn to all forms of arts, hence I decided to do films for a living. Recently I started doing animations as well.
Traveled all my life, and hopefully will always travel. I really enjoy meeting new people and seeing new places.
