The Space

Before making a booking request: please read all of the information below. Also please keep in mind that my calendar is up to date — if you can't select a date, this means it's unavailable!

Until November I will not be in Jerusalem, but you are still very welcome to stay here! You will have the entire apartment to yourself. I am mostly interested in longer stays for these months, for obvious reasons :)
Unfortunately I won't be able to accept bookings for more than 2 months in advance. Nevertheless, I will be happy to know of your interest, so please do contact me!


Welcome to my home! The guest room in my house is lovingly decorated, and has its own balcony overlooking a small courtyard. I enjoy hosting, but also completely understand your need for privacy, so I have done my best to outfit the room with the essentials: coffee and tea are at your disposal, and you have a small table for a private dinner in the room.

Guest Access

A fully equipped (shared) kitchen is available, but please note that I do not keep kosher! Guests also have access to a (shared) bathroom and a washing machine. There is a protected wireless internet network in the apartment (which works just fine out on the balcony!). Towels and linen are of course provided, and you will have tea/coffee making facilities in your room. If you have high standards for tea and coffee: there is an espresso machine in the kitchen, as well as a large variety of loose-leaf teas.

Interaction with Guests

I will not be here myself until November, but the room is still available to book (and you'll have a private bathroom/kitchen!).

The Neighborhood

While only minutes away from restaurants, shops, and the old city, this apartment is situated in a very quiet residential area. With the American consulate and the prime minister's residence just around the corner, it's extremely safe here.

The neighbourhood is usually very quiet and peaceful; unfortunately I have just been informed that they will soon start construction work on a site across the street. I don't know yet 1) when, and 2) how much of a problem this will be noise-wise, but please be aware of this before you book! It is possible that due to the hot weather (in summer and beyond), the work will start quite early in the day. Shabbats and evenings will of course be quiet.

Getting Around

The apartment is very centrally located: within close walking distance from Jaffa Street and the old city — but even the Yehuda Market and the Israel museum can be reached on foot. The Jerusalem light rail is close by, and about ten different bus lines stop around the corner.

NB!! There is only paid parking, and for max. 3 hours, in the street! They check cars daily (and frequently) from 8am-7pm, except on Fridays (8am-1pm) and Saturdays (they don't check at all).
The best place to park long-term is in the car park of Mamilla mall, for 48 NIS per day. This is a ~5 minute walk from my front door.

Other Things to Note

Please: if you make an inquiry or booking and your profile is still quite empty, please do tell me about yourself, and the trip you are making! That way, I know a little bit about you before I invite you into my home.

House Rules

- The room has access to a small balcony if you want to smoke. Please don't smoke inside the house!
- I'm not jewish and do not keep a kosher kitchen, nor do I observe shabbat. If this is important to you, you are very welcome to stay here and I will do my best to accommodate you, but there are many places in Jerusalem that may be more suited to your needs!
