Great old hotel. Big, airy well appointed but well worn. Didn’t bother me. Wonderful restaurant with very good food and attentive service. Big breakfast - variety of food. Hats off to Lubna- cooked eggs to order with a smile.

Great for views of Jerusalem in every direction. They ask for a small donation. The tower itself is a mixture of architectural styles and worth a visit.
