Historical Zion Hotel in JerusalemPros: What you have to understand is the significance of the history of this 250 year old hotel. If you are looking for something fancy and elegant, this is not the place for you. Those expensive places are a dime a dozen. However, if you are looking for authentic Israeli hotel in the heart of downtown Jerusalem, and something affordable, this is an amazing place to stay. The staff were wonderful.Cons: I thought I would not like that there was no elevator because I have trouble with my knees, but the steps are short, so I could take small steps up. The staff was quick to help with luggage, and were all extremely friendly.
Oh, sorry, you asked what I didn't like. It was such a wonderful experience, I don't have any complaints. Oh wait, they could have brewed coffee in the morning instead of providing instant.
TerriblePros: LocationCons: Everything else was horrible
