The staff at the front desk are very helpful. In particular, Jamal was professional, helpful, friendly and went out of his way to get us settled in with great recommendations for dinner.
We had a room on the first floor, which I would not do again. It was very noisy. You could hear all the conversations of other guests in the reception area through the closed door. There was a gap under the door of about 1 inch, which allowed both noise and light from the hallway into the room all night long.
The other problem was the bathroom. The light switch is on the outside of the bathroom (very common in Israel), meaning that you turn the light on, open the door, and then enter. This means that everyone else in the room is awakened with the light.
The Israeli breakfast was good...not the best, but not the worst that I have ever had. The internet was fine. Since this is a kosher place, there is no elevator on Shabbat, and only instant coffee (not brewed), tea and powdered chocolate drink on Shabbat.
The bathroom was not completely clean. There was stuff on the floor behind the toilet from the previous occupants. When we checked in to the room, there were bath towels, but no hand towels. We did get hand towels once we asked for them.
The best thing was that the hotel is located about a 25 min walk from the Mamilla shopping area and therefore very close to Jaffa gate into the old city.
I would probably not stay here again.
This is our second stay in this little hotel. One of the best parts is the staff. They are caring and accommodating. The location is convenient for walking to the city center, many nearby restaurants, Mamilla mall and the Kotel. The breakfast is fine and variety is ok. Nice large bathroom with heater lamp and amenities. Room is on the small side. The mattresses should probably be replaced.
location is good, could use a renovation. front desk was very helpful and friendly.
brekfast was ok. overall cleaniless was just okay. the dining room was available to guests that wish to bring in their food from the outside.
breakfast and tea was available 24 hours. really nice touch
I was searching for the location and came across this little gem. Location was terrific ...very nice neighborhood! The front desk and general staff were wonderful and most helpful. I asked for a larger room than booked and was accommodated, needed items like 'good' hairdryer, electrical timer, directions and recommendations for food. Every request was handled with extraordinary customer service. The Israeli breakfast was nice, room to eat inside and lovely porch also available. There was another nice outside sitting area on the third floor allowing for a place for a tea and R & R.
The hotel is definitely old , but it is clean and the beds were fine. IT's very basic and would benefit from the addition of some well thought out details...then we could say the Little House in Rechavia is 'charming'. I filled my room with flowers from the local florist and throw found at a local market, all was beautiful!Will definitely return when looking for a long term stay that's affordable, and feels comfortable and welcoming.
I visit the area a couple of times a year as my family lives nearby. I planned a last minute trip and the hotel I usually Stan was booked. Adam assess city I decided to try little house and was so pleasantly surprised
It is a bit old but everything was immaculately clean I closing the breakfast room. I will definitely stay there again
