Interaction with Guests

I would love to hear why you're coming to Jerusalem and as local who lived here most of my life I know any part of the city. You are welcome to ask me about anything, I am sure I can get you a good answer about Jerusalem. Once you arrive, me or Barak my business partner will welcome you.

The Neighborhood

Though located in an old building block, the 3 bedroom apartment in the one of the best parts of Jerusalem, close to all main locations and attractions of the city. Though not centrally located near the old city, it is central and is accessible in 10 minutes car drive. Located 3 minutes walk from the German Colony which is known for its lovely Cafes and Restaurants. The apartment offer a very local experience of Jerusalem local life, which is living among the simple every day people. But it is developing very fast, you can enjoy the new "Rail" park that was just built 1 minute walk from my place.

Getting around

Parking is street parking which is always free and always available any time of day or night.
A 1 minute walk will get you to buses to city center. It takes about 10 minutes by bus to reach city center or the old city.

Other Things to Note

There is no elevator; you will have to climb 50 stairs to reach the apartment.

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • Die Wohnung von Jonathan ist sehr schön, hell und hat eine tolle, große Terasse.
    Es war sehr angenehm, dort zu wohnen und die Gastgeber waren sehr sympatisch.
    Vielen Dank!

  • We stayed for 1.5 days in the apartment (3 people). Communication with Jonathan was quick and easy. In travel-related requests (check in, check out times) has been received to our full satisfaction. At the day of our arrival Barak was very helpful and always reachable, answering all our requests.

    The equipment of the apartment is functional but very basic. The apartment in general is in greater need of renovation.

    The neighborhood is close to Emek Refaim with a lot of shops, coffees and restaurants in a silent area.

    Response from Jonathan:

    I am happy you mention some positive things about my apartment. However, please look at the photos and description before you book, you can see it is an old apartment, and the price you got for staying there was amazing. Though the place is old, it is a unique experience in Jerusalem and many of my previous guests had an amazing time.

  • We had very nice contact with Jonathan, he responded always very fast and his friend Barak made our coming and going nice and easy. They provided us with extra bed sheets and towels as we were traveling with our baby. The apartment has a great location, very close to the rakevet park and to Emek Refaim. It is more on the basic side in terms of amenities, but very spacious and with two great and huge balconies to overlook Jerusalem. Free parking all around and a little store and Falafel places around the corner.

  • Jonathan's flat is in a great neighborhood just blocks away from many cafes and tasty restaurants! It is a large flat with lovely patio space with nice views of the neighborhood, but is a little shabby inside. Jonathan is a very attentive host who was available and responsive, even though he's not local. This would be a good place to stay for a few nights for travelers who want a good, basic landing pad for their explorations in and around Jerusalem.

  • Jonathan was an excellent, attentive and communicative host. The apartment was well equipped, with air conditioning in each of the rooms, so the place is well suited for even a group of four people sleeping separately. Upon noticing that one of the AC's didn't function, Jonathan responded promptly and sent his friend Barak to take care of the issue. Location is close to the German Colony with its cafés and restaurants and about a 15-20 min walk to the excellent Jerusalem Cinémathèque, which is well worth visiting. The city centre and the old city are about 15 mins bus ride away.

    Worth mentioning separately is the magnificent terrace which is a fantastic place for having breakfast/lunch or finishing the day with a glass of wine. You don't necessarily even need a sunny day to appreciate it, as we were treated to that magnificent light show that is a thunderstorm.

  • L'appartement en lui-même est simple mais très bien situé. Le quartier est calme et près de l'arrêt de bus pour la vieille ville de Jérusalem. Il y a un parking derrière l'immeuble pour garer les voitures. Il y a aussi des petits commerces de proximité à côté.
    Jonathan est joignable très facilement par mail. Son ami Barak est disponible sur place pour tous les renseignements et les aides nécessaires au bon déroulement du séjour.
    L'avantage principal de l'appartement est la grande terrasse avec son toit qui permet de manger ou flaner à n'importe quelle moment de la journée.

  • We stayed in the apartment in April 2014. The apartment is spacious and in a good location near Emek Refaim and near the lovely walking path along the old railway lines through to the city centre. The aparment is very shabby and really needs redecorating. Our bed linen was completely worn out. We did not expect anything fancy and normally stay in rented apartments but this one needs a bit of tlc!
    Communication with Jonathan was clear and easy and prompt. There is plenty of free parking by the apartment.

    Response from Jonathan:

    Hello Ruth, I am sorry to hear the problems you mention for the first time on this review. I have contacted you several times to make sure all is well. You never told me anything was wrong. Had I known I would do anything possible to make sure you have the best stay.

  • The apartment was just as we expected - simple, but clean, enough space for two families with kids in 3 bedrooms, kitchenette with everything you need, two spacious balconies, wi-fi. The location also is very convenient, easily accessable by public transport from the city centre and the central bus station. Car parking was also not a problem there. Our host was very helpful and friendly. Overall good value for money.

  • Apppartement propre et fonctionnel très sympa. Nous y avons logé en famille avec deux petits enfants. Il y a deux très chouettes terrasses une à l'avant et une à l'arrière de l'appartement. Nous avons aussi bien apprécié le quartier. Emek Refaïm stret et ses nombreux excellents restaurants, l'ancienne gare routière réaménagée en marché couvert bio et zone de plaisance. En plus c'est pas loin du centre. Excellent point de chute à Jérusalem!

  • Die Kommunikation mit Jonathan verlief schnell und problemlos. Auf reisebedingte Wünsche (Check in-, Check out-Zeiten) wurde zu unserer vollen Zufriedenheit eingegangen. Die Ausstattung des Appartments ist zweckgemäß und sauber und entspricht den Fotos. Netter Empfang durch Barak. Eine Schale mit Pistazien stand bereit. Die beiden Dachterassen bieten Ausweichmöglichkeiten für die (bei mehr als 4 Personen) etwas beengte Sitzsituation in der Küche. Schränke und Türen der Zimmer zeigen teilweise schon stärkere Abnutzung und Renovierungsbedarf. Insgesamt war das Preisleistungsverhältnis angemessen.
