Nice clean and comfortable hotel with great accommodations

The hotel is very nice. I love the courtyard as you enter. Its a beautiful setting with plenty of tables and chairs to enjoy times outside. The breakfast was excellent and staff friendly. My room was a standard room, very simple but neat and clean. Bedding was very basic with a simple, thin duvet on the bed but it was clean and sufficient.

staff were very helpful and friendly, make sure to ask for the nicer rooms

The hotel has at most 8 free secured parking places in a narrow very difficult area to park in. The walls of the room were literally filthy, the furniture was as old as the hills and the electric sockets were falling out of the wall. The food was below average and to top it off I can't find a bag of souvenirs. I would never recommend this hotel especially at the price i paid.

This is not one of the most luxurious hotels in Jerusalem, but its proximity to religious neighborhoods and western Jerusalem neighborhoods makes it convenient if you need a reliable room on a budget.

The Prima Palace was one of only two hotels available to me on a recent trip to Jerusalem over the 60th Anniversary Celebration. The location was convenient to the Old City - 15 minute walk; and cabs were available to the Convention Center and elsewhere. If you want a quiet place that is not commercial, in the heart of Jerusalem, this is a great place. The hotel is classified glatt kosher, and does cater to ultra-orthodox Jews; thus providing an authentic, practical Shabbat experience. The hotel staff was extremely helpful in connection with getting cabs and answering questions. The Friday night Shabbat meal was very, very excellent! The hotel suggests making reservations for the shabbat meal early in the week, but I had no trouble arriving on Friday and getting a reservation for that night.
