The switch has small light inside that turns on and it has a small sticker on it. It might take up to one hour in the cold days. Pay attention you have to turn the taps to the right in order to get hot water in the bathroom. Not to the left as usual.
The air-condition spot is above the t.v in the living room at the ceiling corner.
Take the black remote control put it on the right mode (Pay attention in every time you put it on that it is in the hot mode in the winter which looks like a small sun and the cold mode in the summer, sometimes it might change when you turn it off).To keep the bedroom absolutely quite please shut the big window behind the window in the bedroom.
The washing machine and the dryer are outside in the balcony in a warehouse
You can't use the washing machine and the dryer together it is too much for the power.

The security switch is next to the switch that moves the electric shutter in the living room and it should be pressed to the upper side.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Excellent location near Mamilla Cemetery and just a short walk to the Old City. Lots of space and a nice balcony for some down time. Can get a little noisy due to bars and restaurants nearby but wasn't too bad. Lots of stairs to get up to the Penthouse but if you can handle walking around the Old City then it won't be a problem. Great communication from the hosts - very kind and helpful. Would recommend!

  • Never again....Internet service did not work, lighting by the bed did not work, washing machine went off regularly, heater did not work the first night..... ( our German neighbors fared much worse!

    March 2014
  • The specification and location of this apartment were very close to those described by the host in Airbnb bulletin and the host were very attentive to our calls and needs. At the last day we have a late flight and the host was very gracious in allowing us to stay after the official check out time. We enjoyed our staying in Jerusalem very much and the apartment was very important part of our satisfaction. The place is quite but at night is can be a bit noisy due to Bars and restaurants that operate near by at street level.

  • Beautiful apartment in the centre of Jerusalem. We stayed for 2 nights, it was clean and modern. A very good price-quality combination.

    March 2014
  • Our stay in Jerusalem was perfect in every way, The hosts Gitit & Idi Bar-Avin were helpful in so many ways and we enjoyed talking with him. The apartment is in the best location possible, it is 3 blocks from Jaffa Gate to Old City Jerusalem; and only 2 blocks to train and bus services. The apartment has every amenity you could possibly need and was so much more than we expected. I don't think there is a better place to stay in Jerusalem. Our host even helped arrange transportation back to Tel Aviv as our flight left so early in the morning. If I could give more stars I would. Thank you so very much for everything.

  • Un gran departamento muy bien ubicado, Falta solo algunos detealles en su mantenimiento.
    El check in fue un poco complicado, y no todo estaba preparado como debia haber sido, a nuestra llegada, probablemente por ser fin del Shabat (dia feriado) pero los detalles se solucionaros rapidamente y en forma absolutamente satisfactoria.
    Idi siempre estuvo disponible y llano a proporcionarnos la mejor estadia posible en su departamento,

  • This apartment is great. Really great location, very close to Ben yehuda and the old city. We were a group of 5 and the cot that they left us was pretty terrible for the fifth person but otherwise, no complaints.

    January 2014
  • Our family of four spent five nights in this apartment, which is located very conveniently to both the old city and city centre. It is a short 5 minute walk through the Mamila shopping arcade to the Jaffa Gate, or, alternatively, 5 minutes to the New Gate and 10 minutes to the Damascus Gate. Also, you are 2 minutes from Jaffa Street, where you can take the light rail to the Mahane Yehuda market and Yad Vashem. The apartment itself is very spacious and well set out with a large bedroom and bathroom (good hot water), kitchen and an enormous balcony. The two TV's are nice as is the heater/AC unit but it would be helpful to have more explicit instructions on how to operate them.

    We did, however, have some concerns over the cleanliness of the apartment: on first entering, it feels clean but looking more closely reveals a number of issues that should be addressed: the couch is stained and 'grotty', paint is peeling from several walls, there are water/mould stains in the bathroom, and it looks as though nobody has cleaned under the bed for years. It is great to have a washing machine but the dryer needed a good clean, as there was lint and hairs throughout, along with wet sheets and towels inside, which we had to dry, fold and put away ourselves - perhaps the cleaner was rushed and forgot them. The balcony is lovely, but the view is largely over rubbish-strewn rooftops. As others have pointed out, the pillows are rock hard and it is a real stretch to say that it sleeps six. There are a couple of foldaway beds, foam pads and extra sheets in the storage room (OMG, get out as quick as you can!), but they only suit a small child.

    The owners were very helpful, although we did not meet them personally. We appreciated their prompt responses via phone and email. As this apartment is marketed as a "Stunning Boutique Apartment", we feel it is necessary for them to attend to its deficiencies.

    Finally, if self-catering, avoid the 24 hour market opposite the Mamila Hotel - it is a total rip-off! Use the friendly little shop just outside the apartment for basics, the Mahane Yehuda market (vibrant, lively), the souks around Damascus Gate or try to find a larger supermarket.

    January 2014
  • Exclusively convenient location of apartments, and also cleaness and cosiness inside, allow me to call Stunning Boutique Penthouse one of the best options of placement in Jerusalem.
    The spacious and light apartment with a functional kitchen and the big terrace, a convenient big bed and a spacious bathroom has wonderful hosts. Their attention to my stay in apartments was unostentatious and paternally careful.
