Beautiful, airy flat with lots of light and greenery, in Jerusalem's best neighborhood, one block from the Jerusalem Theater, walk to German Colony and the Cinematheque. 2 bedrooms, balcony with view overlooking a garden, plus service porch. The apartment is very airy and surrounded by greenery from every window. 1st floor (one floor up), 75 square meters. Furnished and ready to use. Hi Speed internet. All included!!!!!! Must see, its beautiful. The best part of this apartment is the LOCATION--you are in the gorgeous neighborhood of TALBIEH, this is where the President of Israel lives, it's considered "the best neighborhood" in Jerusalem. There is a small "Makolet" (mini-market) one block away, as well as easy bus access down the street two short blocks, or 4 minutes walk from your apartment.. But this apartment is so central that you rarely need to drive or take the bus. You are walking distance from the center of the town, the King David Hotel,the Old City, the Cafe's, restaurants and shops of the German Colony. YEHUDA ELKELAI STREET!
The best! /////N.B: Due to a personal health issue we had to cancel reservations from October 12-December 12th to use the apartment for a family member. The place remains available for all other available dates as noted in the calendar. WELCOME!

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Everything was exactly as described, a very nice flat with 2 bedrooms (1 big and 1 small bed), living room, bathroom and equipped kitchen. Fast WiFi was also there and working, flat was very clean and equipped with blankets, towels etc.
    Good for up to 1 couple + 1 additional person I would say (we were only 2)

    Walking distance about 15 minutes to the old city in a very quiet neighborhood.

    Noam was our contact and came to the flat when we arrived and left, no problems at all, thank you again.

    Thanks for a great experience, it was definitely better than a (more expensive) small hotel room and I would be glad to come back again.

  • I would like to thank Nina Menkes for making her apartment available to my husband and I during our recent visit to Jerusalem during the High Holy days...We felt so welcomed by Noam, her apartment manager...He was so helpful with our arrival and departure and communicated to the taxi driver for us...Our amenities and the apartment met our needs and we had spacious (email hidden)is is an excellent value for Jerusalem...The balcony was perfect for having a glass of wine, a meal for sukkot, and enjoyment of the peace and quite of the neighborhood. The German Colony was a favorite place to walk and meet the locals and enjoy delicious food, especially the Foccacia Bar...truly a dining experience of enjoyment. All in all, we are very pleased, and are happy with our choice to stay in this apartment....We felt the whole environment was safe, friendly, and very welcoming...Jerusalem, Israel is a destination everyone should visit to experience all that this wonderful city has to offer, and thanks to Nina again for making her home available to us...We appreciate all that she and Noam did to make us comfortable in our recent stay...Marlenah and Hessel

  • Nina had a beautiful apartment in a great location in Jerusalem as we were within walking distance of most all places we wanted to visit. Upon our arrrival, she provided us with maps and information regarding her neighborhood, restaurants, stores, etc. and her manager, Noam, was very helpful and responsive to all out needs and requests. I would highly recommend her apartment for anyone seeking a comfortable and peaceful place to stay in Jerusalem.

    Response from Nina:

    Thank You David, we're glad you had a good stay!!!-Nina and Noam.

  • Unfortunately, I did not meet Nina personally, but we were talking on the phone and (website hidden), she is a very caring host and takes any problem close to heart.
    Nina's apartment manager, Noam, is welcoming, easy and competent, my requests were addressed quickly and well. He also gave me many good advises concerning my first steps in Jerusalem.

    The apartment itself is not big, but nicely planned. It has one big living room with a cozy balcony where you will find a table and chairs with enough place for 4 people, it has direct sun around 9am and shadows in the afternoon, I have enjoyed both :)
    There are two bedrooms, big facing the street and small facing the back yard, but the area is generally very quiet, so there is no difference.
    The whole apartment has lots of light but does not get too hot (it was 37C outside during my stay, but I did not need any air conditioning to cool down, just kept the windows open).
    As a minor flaw, there were ants in the kitchen, but the house management was taking care of that. I personally was not annoyed by them, but if this is a problem for you, ask Nina for the actual status.

    The street and the whole district is beautiful and quiet, it takes about a quarter of an hour of easy walk to reach Mamilla Mall and choose either to walk to the right to the Old city (5 minutes more to Jaffa Gate) or to the left in direction Yaffo street to the restraunt, bar and shopping area (5-10 minutes).
    I did not find any bakery next to apartment, but it was not vital for me, so I did not ask or search especially.
    What else... if you are an easy and communicative person, you will enjoy and appreciate the friendly acceptance of the neighbors, open faces, open smiles.
    Nice place. Thank You Nina!
