A unique space full of authentic character; a Bor Mayim [converted Water Cistern] which was used to store drinking water. Located in central Jerusalem, 2 minute walk from the Light Rail and very close to the city centre and Old City. The apartment has been designed by a professional Designer to provide a flexible studio space with separate living and sleeping areas and a full bathroom. It is set within a beautful courtyard and has its own outdoor seating area. Perfect base to explore Jerusalem.

The space
The apartment is partially sub-ground, has a high vaulted ceiling and 1 metre thick walls and therefore maintains a constant cool temperature all year round. However, there is full air conditioning as well as underfloor heating.

The Bedroom area is above the living space, where the bathroom and closet space is located.

The apartment has limited kitchen facilities; a fridge, microwave and kettle.

There is space for, and we can provide, a Cot for a small baby.

Guest access
Guests have their own outside space with seating and a table.

Other things to note
The apartment is very close to the Jerusalem Light Rail and also in close walking distance of the Jerusalem City Centre.

For anyone (perhaps with allergies) who likes cool temperatures but not air-conditioning, the apartment is perfect. Because it has hugely thick walls (4 feet thick) the temperature inside is nice and cool all-year round - after a recent 5 day heatwave of temperatures around 100F, the temperature inside the apartment remains 20C without the air-conditioning being switched on at all for the 5 days.

There is full air conditioning (and under-floor heating) for any Guests who want to use it - but some Guests may appreciate the ambient temperature without needing to use air conditioning.

Location

Jerusalem, Jerusalem District, Israel

The local area, Musrara, has a unique history, being the centre of the Black Panther movement in Jerusalem in the '50's and '60's. The area is currently the cultural hub of Jerusalem, home to the original Bezalel Art School, which is currently being re-built in the area.
