Double bed, oak cupboards, hair dryer, refrigerator, electric kettle, and, of course, clean sheets and high-quality towels. We provide coffee (regular and decaf), tea, herbal tea, sugar, and milk, as well as corn flakes, bread, butter, jam, and cheese. (Please let us know if you have dietary restrictions.) Air conditioning (also used for heating), free wireless Internet (bring your own laptop), and satellite TV. Iron and ironing board available; just ask. Guidebooks and maps for your use.

The room is in a great location, within 5 minutes' walk of a laundromat, convenience store, bakeries, deli, cafes, restaurants, post office, bank, pharmacy, and pizzeria, as well as the Jerusalem Theater, where you have a choice of plays, concerts, dance performances, and films. Twelve minutes' walk will bring you to trendy Emek Refaim Street, which has a choice of cafes, restaurants, and boutiques, an ATM and two money changers.

Guest access
Guests have access to the garden surrounding our building. At the rear of the building there is a beautiful large olive tree that provides shade and a pleasant place to sit and relax.

Other things to note
If any of the days of your stay coincides with the Jewish Sabbath (Friday sundown until Saturday night) or a Jewish festival (from sundown until the following night), please note that there is no public transportation (although taxis and the Arab bus to Bethlehem do operate). Major museums are open. Although in the Old City everything will be open as usual, in the rest of the city most shops, cafes, and restaurants will be closed. Please see the guidebook section of our listing for some suggestions of restaurants outside the Old City (and within walking distance of our B&B) that are open on the Sabbath and on most Jewish festivals).
Jewish festivals and holy days when you can expect most restaurants to be closed are: Rosh Hashana (the Jewish New Year); Yom Kippur (the Day of Atonement; everything outside the Old City is closed); Succot (the Feast of Tabernacles; the first and last day of the week-long festival); Passover (the first and last day of the week-long festival); Shavuot (Pentecost). Most restaurants are closed also on Tisha be'Av (a day of mourning), the eve of Holocaust Remembrance Day and Memorial Day for Israel's Fallen.

Location

Jerusalem, Yerushalayim, Israel

Our neighborhood is very green and quiet. It contains a mix of historic buildings and newer buildings, all made of Jerusalem stone. There is history everywhere, including the story of the German Templers who settled in this area in the 19th century, and the fierce battles fought here during the 1948 war (you can see bullet holes on a building just a few meters away from us).
And although the neighborhood is so quiet, there are plenty of cafes, restaurants, and shops within very easy walking distance. We are also within walking distance of the Old City.

I am a native of Jerusalem and I love my city. Each guest from Airbnb opens a new window on the world for me. I enjoy welcoming them and hearing about their travels and plans. My wife, Esther, also enjoys meeting our guests and helping them. I love helping my guests get the most out of the city. I supply them with good maps that show how to walk or take public transportation to the city's major sites and also where to find food of all kinds. I also love books, and our guests will find a large selection to choose from, both guidebooks and novels. Travelers have many questions about places they would like to visit. If I don't know the answer to your question, I will ask someone who does know. Please feel free to contact me and I will get back to you as soon as possible.

During your stay
We live in the building where the B&B is located and are usually home. If we know we will not be home when you arrive, we will leave a key for you. We are always happy to answer questions and offer suggestions for touring and dining options. In addition to providing regular maps, we will gladly provide hand-drawn maps explaining how to get to various places. Of course, if you prefer to do everything on your own, you are welcome to do so and we will not disturb you.
