The HaShimi Hotel is the only hotel in the core or "heart" of the Old City of Jerusalem. The building itself is over 400 years old! But you wouldn't know it once you're inside. The very modern and artistic interior features marble floors, stairs and railings. The entire hotel's color scheme is beautifully done in whites, beiges and maroons, with rich gold detailing. As an honored guest of the HaShimi Hotel, you will no doubt enjoy the brand new AIR-CONDITIONING that makes the "atmosphere" at HaShimi Hotel the BEST in the Old City. You will receive FREE tea whenever you like and FREE luggage storage. You will be able to safeguard your valuables in the HaShimi Hotel's own safe. If you would like, you may prepare your own meals in the fully equipped Community Kitchen or dine in the on-site restaurant. If you're vacationing in Israel to see the religious and historical sites, the HaShimi Hotel will make a terrific base for your travels. For example, the Church of the Holy Sepulcher is only 125 yards away! Even many of the New City areas of Jerusalem are close enough to walk to. Personally, I have found Jerusalem to be "smaller" than I thought it would be, but Ive discovered that there are many more interesting things to see and do than I realized. Staying in the Old City will make touring Jerusalem easier for you. The staff at HaShimi Hotel can arrange your place in organized tours to all areas of Jerusalem. Some are walking tours. Some are by bus to other cities and regions. All of them are great fun!

From Damascus Gate you'll be on an open street mall that slopes down from the Gate. Walk to the far end at the bottom of the slope. Bear to the right on El-Zeit Street. The HaShimi Hotel is ahead on the left.

Hotel/Hostel in a convenient location

The hotel room was more like a hostel, with 4 beds (two beds and a bunk bed) and a simple bath. The location was great, just inside the Damascus gate. The decor was scenic, with an Islamic tone (no smoking, alcohol, or unmarried couples). The breakfast was generous, but simple. The view from the rooftop was amazing.

SO-SO

When we booked, there was no reference to a fee for the Tel Aviv-Jerusalem shuttle. The Hotel wanted $300. [...] There was, however, an additional $15 charge to carry our luggage from the shuttle to the the Hotel. [...] I did not fit into the shower stall in the room we were assigned. I had to wait until the next day to bathe in another room. This after a gruelling 36 hour trip from PDX via EWR. Even though the package included a Continental Breakfast, the Desk Clerk wanted us to pay for it. On the third day, I mentioned this to the owner who waived the extra fee. What you get is hard-boiled eggs and baloney. The hotel itself has a nice reception area with comfortable sofas and $3 an hour computers and $1 dollar instant coffee. While their brochure offers currency exchange, the owner told me to go down the street. The staff was otherwise attentive. The only advantage to staying at the Hashimin is that it's near the Via Dolorosa in Old Jerusalem. There are no elevators in this 500-year old structure. It merits two stars for value and three stars for customer service. There are no better accomodations nearby, only worse.

Fantastic location

This little boutique hotel is in the heart of the Muslim Quarter of the Old City of Jerusalem and therefore is within easy walking distance of all the great tourist sites. The accommodations are simple and clean and you will be quite comfortable unless you prefer travelling posh. The staff was polite and helpful. If you are an adventurous traveller, then this is the place to stay!

Super view and location in the Old City

My father and I stayed here over a weekend. The hotel is located on a very busy street with shops, part of the bazaar in the Old City, with lots of people around. It was about a five minute walk from where we parked right outside the Jaffa gate (only 55 shekels, about 15$ to park overnight), and a five minute walk to the Wall, Via Dolorosa, and everywhere else you would want to visit in the Old City. Unmarried couples are not allowed to stay together in the hotel. The room was small-clean, but cramped and the bathroom was about 20 square feet-very small by American standards, but perfectly adequate. Towels were provided (not the case everywhere). By far the best part of the hotel was the rooftop dining area. We sat and watched the sunset over the Old City with fantastic views of the Al Aqsa Mosque. You could see and hear children playing in the streets below (and, once we tried to go to sleep, a shop alarm on and off all night). We met other travelers on top and got some travel tips, and my father woke up and watched the sunrise-he said it was fantastic, coming up directly over the mosque.
