Nachlaot is a cluster of neighborhoods in central Jerusalem known for its narrow, winding lanes, old-style housing, hidden courtyards and many small synagogues.
Nestled between the stately Teutonic-cum-Middle Eastern elegance of Rechavia and the warren of spice stalls of the Machane Yehuda market is Nachlaot, one of the oldest neighborhoods in Jerusalem and a reliably fascinating slice of Jerusalemite life.
Nachlaot was established in the late 1870s outside the walls of the Old City, which was becoming increasingly overcrowded and unsanitary.
Jerusalem's Mahane Yehuda outdoor market is located next to Nachlaot.
At one time Nachlaot had a higher concentration of synagogues than anywhere else in the world, around 300 within a radius of just a few blocks.
The neighborhood includes the world famous Ades Synagogue, Addis Congregation, the flagship of the Syrian Halebi community, and many more.
Nachlaot was declared as historic preservation site in 1989, under cultural heritage protection.
The house is located in the center of Jerusalem, walking distance to most of the sites. All transportation is very near - bus, city train, etc...
Please see this article ( (website hidden) )for all the ways to get to Jerusalem.
I prefer the first one (shared taxi) since it's much cheaper than private taxi (but takes a bit longer to arrive). When you take the shared taxi please state the address - Agripas st., corner of Halhul st. near the Machane Yehuda market).
If you're 3 or more people I'd consider taking a private taxi - the difference might be very minor and you won't have to be in a taxi with 9 more people (since shared taxis are kind of minibus). The address for the private taxi is Halhul st. which is a tiny street splitting from Agripas st. which is the main market street. Than you walk straight ahead 100m and turn right to Gibeon st. , walk another 50m and you'll see number 8.
Taking a bus is an option, but you'll have to walk about 15 m with luggage and I think it's not a good way to start your vacation.
Train is a scenery option but the longest one (almost twice the time) and it arrives far away from city center, so another cab/bus should be taken.
Welcome to our home! We are so happy to have you stay here and are always available to help you with any issues that may arise over the course of your stay.
This is a very unique house (chosen by design magazines), in which we invested a lot of effort, so we appreciate your sensitivity. Below you will find a list of suggestions and recommendations to keep in mind during you stay.
- No smoking inside the house, there is a garden for it
- All cleaning supplies are located under the sink if you should need anything
- This most likely goes without saying, but we are leaving you in a house full of our personal possessions (only one closet is taken). We ask you to be respectful of our belongings.
- No parties or gatherings allowed. If there is a question please ask prior to booking.
We stayed for three days in mid-March and found the place very pleasant. The apartment is exactly as in the photographs. Eugene was a great host: when we could not find the hair dryer, he sent one over the same day.
The apartment is in a wonderful neighborhood. It is a short walk to the Machane Yehuda Market where we would go each day for breakfast and to get something fresh for lunch. Cafelix makes a great cortado. In the neighborhood, there are restaurants ranging from Machneyuda at the high end to small places trying to make the best sabikh in Jerusalem.
The apartment is a half hour walking distance to the old city and about the same distance to the Israel Museum. If one does not want to walk, one can also take the light rail on Yafo Street to the old city.
The apartment is even nicer than appeared in the pictures. The location cannot be better being so close to the market (produce, fruit, baked goods...) and great restaurants. We walked to the Old City many times from the apartment. If you rent a car, there is no free parking, so get detailed instructions from the host where to park. The truly high speed internet is a bonus.
This was an amazing place to stay. Great neighborhood, amazing apartment. Eugene has a great place, easy accessibility. The apartment is spectacular and close to all the good things in Jerusalem. Can't speak enough about this!
This apartment is amazing. So comforting to come home to after a long day of exploring everything in Jerusalem. I would highly recommend this apartment to anyone who wants an oasis at the end of a busy day. The location is great, you really feel as though you are part of the neighborhood. Everything was within walking distance.
One of our favorite airbnb locations to date!
The place is absolutely beautiful! Everything we could have wanted. Engine was really helpful with organising our stay very last minute (like 2 hours before). Very happy with our experience. Would highly recommend
I am so disappointed to have to write this review, especially as this was my first experience with airbnb. At first, Eugene was a pleasure to book with and then his place was taken over by "Guesty." Eugene was traveling so left a management company of sorts in charge of the listing. When we had issues with the air conditioning, it became clear that they did not know the apartment and were not going to be of any help. We thought that the a/c was simply off but the people at Guesty were not able to accurately tell us where the control was. We finally found it on our own. The apartment is lovely and we would not have found its flaws had the a/c worked. But it did not. And we then found that two windows were broken - unable to be opened. Someone was sent to look at the a/c when we were out because nothing was cooling down and he made the situation worse by making the apartment hotter. The a/c was never fixed while we were there and fans were only brought the last night at my request. The light over the kitchen table was also on the fritz and not an easy bulb to find. Know that the apartment is difficult to find and down a pedestrian street with steps - difficult with a lot of luggage. Also, there is a floor to ceiling window in the master bedroom so there is little to no privacy if traveling with others. The neighborhood is great, though deserted if you arrive on Shabbat. The apartment was very clean.
This is a perfect apartment in a perfect neighborhood. Eugene and Noa were very responsive and had everything ready. We will definitely stay here again. The neighborhood is Nachlot, but is really one small area after another. There is great diversity, which makes it really interesting: a Syrian synagogue from Aleppo, a spanish synagogue started by butchers, artists, the whole gamut of diversity that makes Jerusalem so fascinating. The apartment is a 3 minute walk to the famous Machane Yehudah market, where you can eat your way for months on fresh foods. It is easy enough walking distance to the old city ad any other areas, but yet you are in a residential area.
The apartment itself is as charming as the pictures. There is a downstairs bedroom, then the main area with a living room and kitchen; there is a pull out sofa. Upstairs is another bedroom, and for families (we have 12 year old twins, boy and girl), the best part for the parents is that they can sleep upstairs yet still see the kid(s) sleeping on the first level because there is a huge glass wall. There is super convenient and cheap parking also 3 minutes away.
This is the way and place to stay in Jerusalem.
Thanks so much Eugene and Noa.
