Hello and welcome to the Tamar Suite is located next to the Jerusalem Theatre and the President's residence in one of Jerusalem’s most beautiful streets.
It is a lovely 1BR private suite, surrounded by a quite garden in old Talbiyeh neighborhood which is the best central location for exploring Jerusalem.
It's quiet and peaceful and yet very central within an easy walking distance to the new Mamila mall and the old city, Emek Refaim St. restaurants and coffee shops, city center Ben Yehuda st., etc.
Tamar suite is all in one level. It is ideal for one or two guests.
It has free wireless internet, AC, cable TV, fully equipped kitchen etc.
A free parking lot and a bus stop are just next to the suite and a small shopping center with all needed services less than 5 minutes away.
Aviva and Matty will be there to assist with useful information and tips.
Our stay in Jerusalem was really nice. The apartment is located in a beautiful area and basically everything is close and in walking distance. The garden is super pretty and it is really nice to sit outside on warm summer nights. There is a little pond with fish, budgies, a turtle and two dogs walking around-really cozy.
Nevertheless the apartment itself was a little disappointing for us. In the pictures it looks really flawless, though it was quite moist in the apartment (which I think was due to not enough fresh air) which resulted in also soggy bed sheets. What we thought also that in some spots it was not really clean, the table was dirty, the rather small shower a little rusty and some insects were walking around (which did not really bother but did make us feel a little uncomfortable). All in all we thought that the apartment needs a little makeover (the walls a new coat of paint etc.) to make it look like it does here on Airbnb. For people who get not bothered by things listed above it is though the perfect place especially because the host Matty makes the stay worth it- he is super nice, always helpful and always there when you need an advice. This together with the awesome location of the apartment and the enchanted garden around it made it nevertheless a nice stay in Jerusalem.
We very much enjoyed our stay. The apartment was clean, comfortable, quiet, and very near to the Old City, First Station, and other places for shopping and restaurants. Our host was very welcoming and helpful, and accommodating to our need for a flexible arrival time. We highly recommend this apartment.
We had a lovely stay in Matty and Aviva's apartment. It was in a great area for touring the old city - about a 20 minute walk from the Jaffa gate. Aviva showed us where we could leave our rental car nearby on a free parking street which is very difficult to find in Jerusalem. We took Matty's advice and tried a restaurant in the nearby 1st Train Station complex which was developed from, as you would guess, Jerusalem's very first train station and had a wonderful meal. We thouroughly enjoyed our time in their lovely apartment and can highly recommend it.
Superb host. Plane was delayed and happily greeted even late. Went over things to do, where things are and had a handy map and handout on such. Each day greeted after complete with offers to help. Arranged cabs for early pickup as well
Room was perfect and just as pictured.
Highly recommended. I would certainly go back and happily stay here.
Matti is a very welcoming and helpful host. The location is excellent. Walking distance to an enormous number of Jerusalem sites. The apartment is a little small but completely functional with everything one would need. Matti's place helped make our Jerusalem experience a delight.
What a wonderful place to stay! What more could you ask for staying with Matty and Aviva. The apartment is situated in Talbiyeh which is in the best part of Jerusalem near to everything. It is the equivalent of staying in Hampstead, London. The apartment is unusually, for Jerusalem, surrounded by a lovely garden. There is no-one above as it is single storey and all you hear are the birds. The apartment is compact but very nicely done and well equipped. It is cosy and relaxed and very comfortable. Matty and Aviva are brilliant hosts; friendly, welcoming and go out of their way to make sure that you have everything you need. I am a very frequent visitor to Jerusalem and I wouldn't look anywhere else. Perfect!
Matty was very welcoming from the minute our booking was accepted - I emailed several queries and he replied immediately with helpful hints. The apartment is great for a couple - the bed comfortable; the boiler very efficient at providing hot water and as we were there in a cold spell the heating provided was fantastic! We only used the kitchen for breakfast and preparing a salad platter - everything we needed to do this was supplied. Even some English books to read and maps and a guidebook to use. The dogs got used to us going in and out in no time. Great quiet location - only 20 mins walk to Old City, 5 mins up the road to Jerusalem Theatre with a great cafe - The apartment description is how we found it to be.
Can see how lovely it would be to stay in summer with your own outdoor area for dining/drinks -
Parking on a meter outside and free from 1.00pm Friday to 8.00am Sunday morning but really no need for a car here.
we loved our time - thanks Matty for having us.

Aviva and I love to travel and we enjoy very much to host guests from all over the world in our suites. Many of our guests became good friends and they are returning again and again. We also visited some of them when we were traveling to their countries.
We love Jerusalem very much (in spite of all dificulties - and there are some...) and we are always willing to share our knowledge of some hidden beautiful historical sites, unknown bars or restaurant or other tips with our guests. (only if they ask...)
