I stayed for 2 nights at this hotel with a friend as part of our city break in Jerusalem. I knew what to expect from this place based on the reviews and the price I paid. Upon arrival the man at the reception seemed a little unfriendly but helpful when we asked for some suggestions and help. The hotel looks slightly run down but clean. Our room was on the 2nd floor with a view of another hotel - but we didn't come to this hotel for the view, we just needed a place to sleep. The AC didn't really work, which made the night uncomfortable but not unbearable. The bathroom was spacious with excellent water pressure (trust me, this can be a massive problem in Israel). While we have booked a simple double room, we also had a living room area with a tiny kitchen and fridge. The latter didn't smell too good so we didn't use it. The breakfast (as many pointed it out) is just toast, orange juice and coffee/tea but once again, I knew what to expect. It's not a bad place for a few days if you are coming to visit the city and not to stay in the hotel. The prices are considerably less than many of the other nearby hotels so if you are on a budget but don't want to stay in a hostel, this could be the solution.
We are still currently staying in the hotel. It has a nice shady garden, rooms have a good size and staff is polite. However, the air conditioner does not work and it is unbearable hot in the room. We arrived yesterday evening and we noticed it straight away. I went to reception and I was told they would do something about it. My friend and I went for dinner and when we came back we were told the AC was ok. Went upstairs to check, it wasn't. Back to reception. Gentleman assured me in 15m someone will come to fix it. Half an hour later no sign of anybody so back to reception. I was told that because Ramadan maybe the man was having dinner with his family. Just to wait a bit more. Three quarters of an hour later, back to reception. Told to wait a bit more. Finally went to sleep. We left very early this morning after being assured we would have AC on our return. We just arrived to hotel. Of course, no AC. We have just been told in reception by a different gentleman that there has not been AC in the hotel for more than three days! Incredible! Where is the management????
My husband and I stayed in Addar hotel for 3 days and were very satisfied. It's a beautiful hotel with a room and a separate living room with TV and leather couch and a kitchen (2 burners, plates,coffee cups and a kettle) Very clean bathroom and change of towels everyday. The hotel is located within 10 mins walk from Damascus Gate in Old Jerusalem. Very friendly owner and hotel staff, very accommodating to our needs as we arrived from airport earlier than the check in time and the owner was very helpful. Continental Breakfast is $10 US ( slice of pita bread, jam and coffee) Free wifi from the room and also from the room. Great sleep in their comfortable beds. We had to pay for parking nearby behind a gas station.
Room was clean but, everything else didn't work, no hot water in the bathroom, no WiFi, no A/C, no telephone in the room, no chanal news in English or Hebrew on TV (almost everything in Arabic) the poorer continental breakfast (just bread and margarine and coffee), embarrassed to call it hotel
Stayed in December 2016, and this was just terrible place to choose. Sure pictures look great, and they say it's a 4* hotel, but, ehem, YOU ARE LACKING ALL THE 4* QUALITIES! Besides the fact that it has NOT been refurbished couple years ago (because everything has an old odor and is broken) it was filthy! there was a 2cm layer of dust and garbage under the bed. The towels were literaly torn apart with huge holes in them. The toilet seat fell off and the kicken had a leaking tap and the fridge was full of water and had an old food pack with mold. DISGUSTING! Any time we asked the front dest to do something about the situation, they would just ignore it. Shout out to the manager, i dont remember his name, but he was just terrible. During the morning "breakfast" (notice, continental in Addar means dry bread, warm butter and cold coffee) the manager would walk around and tell everyone to visit some sort of hungarian restaurant he used to work in, and then screamed on me and my partner, because we and another guest couple giggled about the breakfast assortiment :D also during booking they claimed there was a parking space available, but upon arrival turned out there was none. And the only solution they offered was - oh, there is a free parking lot around 5km away from here. park there. I have never ever stayed in a place as terrible as this. I have no idea why they claim it's a 4* place if there are so many things wrong with it. Did they draw 3 stars themselves? Seems so. Never ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!
If you require nothing , and this hotel should be advertised as such , then this place might suit your needs . It is dilapidated .Almost everything is in disrepair. Housekeeping just isn't . The bathrooms have very visible black mold from a lack of proper cleaning . Atm there is no hot water since yesterday (almost 24 hrs) due to an issue with "something?". If you don't smoke you will while here . The staff smokes incessantly and the entire place smells of it . Bkfst is advertised to be included : it consists of bread and butter and bad coffee . That is literally it!
When built, this hotel was probably a good 4 start hotel, as rooms are spacious, with nice veranda, large bathroom (with a bidet which is rare in Jerusalem hotels). Now it's a bit tired and worn out, with outdated furniture, scratches on the bathtub leaking door, and smell of smoking in it's non smoking room (which are equipped with an ashtray). On the good side, those rooms costs probably provide the best value for money in the city (similar sized room but in a renovated hotel will cost four times the price of this one), with 5 minutes walk from Damascus gate, leading to the lively market of the Muslim quarter, next to the light train station, thus perfectly situated to explore the old city of Jerusalem. The room is equipped with AC, so if you are coming to explore the city and not to enjoy the hotel, it's a good choice, For parking there is city parking on the street behind the hotel (but you will need to buy a voucher from 0800 to 1900, night is free), or a few pay parks few blocks away
Deliver what you advertise on e.g. Expedia and Bookingdotcom: - free newspapers - didn't to see any newspaper in the room nor in the lobby - coffee / water boiler with coffee and tea - no coffee machine or water boiler in the room. Coffee and tea were delivered when asked. - Jacuzzi and bathrobes - our room lacked this - Premium TV channels - there was only one English channel i.e. CNN On the internet it states: Every morning a complimentary continental breakfast. What is a continental breakfast? According to Addar hotel: sliced white bread, jam, margarine, coffee, tea and orange juice (quality less than cordial) I think this is a 4 star hotel unworthy. I have stayed in a lot of three and four star hotels but I have never got served such a minimal breakfast. Good points: - close to the old city - easily accessible by bus and light train - good beds - deluxe room has a separate sitting room and bedroom. Really good. Deliver what you advertise. Being a four-star hotel creates expectations among customers. Start with offering a decent breakfast worthy of a four star hotel.
Stayed for 2 weeks here and had no issues. Staff was helpful. Breakfast was poor- ate twice! Wifi poor. Carpet needed a good hoovering. Otherwise had a lovely balcony off both bedroom and lounge. Keep your expectations low and kick back!
Most vile hotel I have ever seen. Not a very good first impression when walking straight in, it didn't look particularly clean. Rooms were dirty with damp over the ceiling, handles falling of doors, chunks out of the walls, dirt on the floor along with a horrible smell. Went with family and their rooms were all the same (3 rooms in total). DO NOT STAY HERE!! I am shocked this hotel is still able to be open. As soon as we saw the rooms we went down to reception and explained we would not be staying here, the guy didn't seem surprised. We were very lucky and managed to get rooms in the hotel opposite called The Olive Tree which was amazing, staff here had heard similar stories about the Addar Hotel.
