About This Listing
We (my partner Yuval and I) offer you a room in our great, renovated, fully equipped apartment in the quiet neighborhood French Hill. It's a 3-minute walk to the light rail, which will take you downtown or to the Old City in about 10 minutes.
(there is also an option to rent the entire apartment; see separate listing)
The room has a queen-size (double) bed, a study corner and a dresser (as seen in photos). No wardrobe, but we can make extra storage room upon request. The apartment is spacious, renovated, and every room air-conditioned.
It's located in the French Hill at the end of a small side-street, well connected to main routes. Plenty of free parking.
The neighborhood has everything you need - three minutes away is the main road, with two grocery stores, supermarket, bank, many dining options (falafel, home-made food, pizza, burgers) and other services.
Shared bathroom and shower. Fully furnished kitchen and living room, including a new stove-top oven, espresso machine & macchinetta, Russian piano. Broadband internet connection (with Wifi) and washing machine at your disposal.
Interaction with Guests
We provide breakfast and will be happy to share our view of Jerusalem.
Also, we have a food fetish. So if you'll bring us your local sweets (or cheeses), we'll trade them for a local dinner!
The light rail (tram) is a three minute walk, which means the Old City, city center and Mahane Yehudah open-air market are 10-17 minutes away. 5-10 more minutes will take you to Central Bus Station or Yad Va'shem.
It's a beautiful 20 minute walk, or 5 minute bus ride to the Hebrew University, which passes next to Commonwealth war cemetery, Hadassah hospital and botanical garden.
Mount of Olives is adjacent, reachable by East Jerusalem bus service (13 minutes) or car/taxi (6 minutes).
Also near by are buses (77, 77A, 42, 68 and more) to take you anywhere in town.
Other Things to Note
Erwin the cat (famous for his pink nose) is now a year and a half already. For his first birthday he got a younger brother: Carl Gustav. They are both super friendly. Erwin is more mellow and independent. Gustav is vibrant and playful.
Thanks Yuval and Mazor.
Location is great for tram access and Killer Breakfast!
The bed is comfy, too.
Mazor thanks for everything. Breakfast was fantastic! Lovely place.
Dear Mazor. Thank you for a relaxing stay in Jerusalem. You helped us get to the Israel museum and we enjoyed the exhibition telling about mankind and the 1965 and today. Good advice how to get around. Travel card made life easy. And breakfast the next morning: better than Gregg...
I've spent four days at Mazor's and Yuval's apartment. The neighbourhood is nice, green and located only five tram-stops from Jaffa Gate. The room was impeccably clean, the bed is really good.
Yuval and Mazor have been really kind and most helpful with all my transport problems. Extra thanks for the delicious breakfasts ! I definitely recommend staying at their place. Thank you guys !
A great base from which to explore Jerusalem. After an active day in the old town it's nice to come home to a cozy, quiet and laid back apartment like their place. As noted, the tram stop is about 5 minutes walk. I spent 7 days with Yuval and Mazor -- they are great hosts.
Me and my friend Tomek spent a very nice week at Mazor and Yuval's apartment. We were provided with very useful tips how to get their place, they gave us tramway cards and were very helpful in getting around. Their apartment was very comfortable and spacious.
And, they also made delicious breakfasts! Fully recommended.

About the Host, Mazor
I'm a 25 year old psychology student from Jerusalem. I don't travel much, but when I do, I travel hard. I read a lot and I'm interested in different cultures. I love food and beautiful houses. I usually travel with my partner Yuval. who also has a profile here on Airbnb: https://www.airbnb.com/users/show/7606731
They are close by and effective: the minimarket is closer than the supermarket and has better produce - but is pricier. Dominos Pizza is the landmark for getting around, their pizza is OK, not more.Etsel St י-ם
The neighborhood supermarket is a 7 minute walk away. Right next by are ATMs, some fast food places (pizza, burgers, home made food, chicken wing bar and hummus), a café and other stores.HaHagana St Jerusalem
A 10-minute walk, this falafel joint is Yuvals favorite one in town. Its open everyday Sat-Thu until 2am.Lehi St Jerusalem
The Aroma franchise is what began a fresh, quality-fast-food trend in Israel. albeit a bit overpriced for the genre. It has branches everywhere, which serve excellent sandwiches, salads and coffee.י-ם
We like visiting universities while we are abroad. This campus is Mazors school, and has a great botanical garden. We wouldnt spend the entire day here, but its worth a visit since youre so close.ירושלים
This guest house, which is also an intercultural center, boasts an excellent Viennese cafe. Have a coffee, apfelstrudel with cream and then go to the rooftop for a stunning view of the old city.Jerusalem
Being the only gay bar in town, the dance floor is too small for the crowd, but you can always escape to the terrace. Our favorite hangout, it has a nostalgia-packed wall gallery and fun music.Yohanan Horkanos St Jerusalem
The plain facade, which eludes you on this downtown side street, hides not only a pleasant courtyard, but also the best pizza in town, and for a decent price. Desserts also worth a try.HaHavatselet St י-ם
A cafe / bookshop hidden above a courtyard in one of the first neighborhoods built outside the walls. Yehuda Amichai sat there to write, and their Shakshuka was #10 in TripAdvisors best breakfasts.Jerusalem 91316
A cooperative ceramics gallery, Ruach Cadim is a place for these local artists to showcase and sell their art without intermediaries. Our friend Sandra has some amazing works there too.Yo'el Moshe Salomon St Jerusalem
Very diverse not only in the people and the merchandise, Friday is chaotic, and every night is an out night here. Get something fresh to cook at home. This place is a must!Jerusalem Jerusalem District
Kadosh is our favorite cafe. Mouth-watering pastries are made fresh every morning, and go great with the excellent coffee. Breakfast and lunch dont fall behind. Not cheap, but definitely worth it.שלומציון המלכה Jerusalem
The Basher family, whose market stall was renowned for its most varied selection of cheese, has gone on to open their own restaurant, serving excellent food. Slightly pricey, but worth it.Agripas Jerusalem
A vegan haven with what some call the best hummus in town, this place has a charming upper floor where you can quickly escape the turmoil of the market below.Eliyahu Yaakov Banai Street י-ם 94320
The dance floor of this pub is quite small, but features some of the most interesting sounds in the city. Enjoy local beers and mingling in the busy outside, or inside on cozy sofas.Ben Sira Jerusalem
For pub lovers and people who take their alcohol seriously, this is quiet, cozy, cool spot to enjoy a variety of beers and drinks.Shlomtsiyon HaMalka St Jerusalem 94146
One of the better restaurants in town. The food is great, but pricey. A good place for foodies who want to experience some out-of-the-ordinary, high quality Israeli cuisine.שמואל הנגיד Jerusalem
Its small, with only two tables and a bar, and constantly busy, but even though youll have to wait - its a good thing. They only make whats fresh, and they make it good. Students get special dealsJerusalem 9459001
Yuvals favorite spot in town, this serene lookout onto the Old Citys walls is the best way to say goodbye to the sun.Pele Yo'ets St Jerusalem
Next to the botanical gardens and not far away from the museums, this tranquil cafe is unknown to many locals. High-grade, personal, generous Italian dishes are available for a medium price.Ha-Rav Herzog St י-ם
This modern Holocaust museum is not easy, but its interesting as a view into Israeli/Jewish attitude to WWII events. The architecture and amazing view add to the mixture of feelings.הזיכרון Jerusalem 91034
This wonderful, beautiful neighborhood, which is Mazors favorite in town, was an Arab village until 1948. Its fun to walk around, with some nice restaurants and important churches around.Ein Kerem St Jerusalem
