* a bit about the market:

Mahne Yehuda Market is actually located 3 minutes walking from the apartment, it's the biggest market in Israel, and is very famous as a colorful authentic and unique. there is a mix between the old authentic style, and the modern urban way of life.. you can walk through the sidestreets and around it, and discover many kinds of local food, restaurants, tapas bars, small bars, coffee shops, designers shops, art shops, and many many more.
the Market is open every day (except saturday)from early morning.
in Friday it is most colorful, including street music.
every night (except Friday night) there are many attractions around it, many small nice bars, tapas bars, coffee shops and restaurants, ice-cream and fruit shakes.... great experience.. anything you need, in day or night, you can find in the market, which is only 3 minutes walking.... however, the neighborhood inside is quite and peacefull.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Motty is really nice and helpful person, I received a lot of information, also about free parking place (so I saved up a lot of money:) the apartment is very cozy and clean, in a great livelyI area, within walking distance to the old town I would certainly recommend!

  • Motty was most helpful and made the key exchange quite simple. He took us to find free parking which is no small feat in Jerusalem. Place was extremely comfortable. Was able to run a load of laundry. Rooftop view was great. Thanks Motty for being a great host!

    February 2014
  • Motty's place was in a great location and the rooftop patio was lovely! We've traveled many times to Jerusalem and would recommend this as an excellent place to stay for any travelers!

    January 2014
  • Our arrival was a little bit chaotic, but this was soon forgotten.
    Motty is a nice person and this apartment matches the description. Although it does not have a lot of character (has more the feel of a rental apartment than a place where somebody actually lives), it is very quiet and conveniently located near an impressive food market in the new city. The roof terrace is really terrific: even though our stay was in January we enjoyed having breakfast in the sun.

    January 2014
  • I was very comfortable in Motty's place. He was friendly, helpful and provided me with everything I needed. It was a pleasant atmosphere and conveniently located. I would recommend this place to friends.

    January 2014
  • Great apartment, very clean and really well equipped! We loved the neighbourhood, only a few minutes away from the famous Mahane Yehuda market, where you can buy almost everything! Motty was very nice and helpful. We had a great stay, thank you for everything!

  • Motty is a really nice guy who did everything he could to help us with our check in . The apartment is cosy and warm and incredibly well situated in a fun area close to the market. We could walk to the Old City easily and we also took the tram which is five minutes walk away and easy to use. The rooftop is gorgeous and would be amazing in summer .

  • The place looks exactly like in the pictures, very nice!!!
    Great views of Jerusalem from the roof top and we were lucky enough to see snow on many of the other roof tops, and of course beautiful sunsets :)
    The place itself is very neat and close to the market ( 3 minutes) and to the old city (Jaffa gate- 20 minutes). A nice romantic getaway for couples.

    December 2013
  • The apartment is ideally locatedto go off to explore the city by walking and also discover the nightlife of the market area at 5 minutes away.
    The flat is very nice, consistent with the pictures of the website, and the rooftop is a really nice asset in case of sun.
    And above all, Motty is an excellent host and gives precious advises if you want to enjoy Jerusalem as a local person (bars and restaurants…)
    Without any hesitation, we recommend Motty's apartment and shall return undoubtedly!!!!

    Motty, we thank you again for everything
    It was a great experience to see Jerusalem in the snow! :)

    Audrey & Anne.

  • Motty's apartment is a great base from which to explore Jerusalem. Here you can experience the local way of life, as it is away from the tourist center, but close enough to the old city (15 minute walk) or an easy tram ride. The apartment is right near the market, a not to miss foodie experience. The apartment itself is comfortable and quite.
