A mid-range, somewhat tired hotel. The rooms towards the pool are somewhat larger that the ones to the back. Of course, the higher rooms have better views, we stayed at the 4th floor towards the back, facing the roof of the parking and facing the stairs leading upward to the next street.
The hotel was built 1972, and it shows, e.g. stained carpet in the hallway, non-functional safe in the room and a tired bathroom. But it‘s clean and maintenance (bar the safe) seems to be good: other hotels this age are in worse shape.
The elevator situation mentioned in other posts didn‘t bother us (it seems like we hit days of low occupancy) and we took the (small) staircase during shabbes anyway. The hotel announced new elevators in the lobby to be coming.
We didn‘t eat at the hotel, so cannot comment on that. We did turn on the A/C briefly, but didn‘t like the smell and opened the window instead.

The location was good for us by Yad Vashem on a day we needed to film there so we chose this Hotel.
The rooms where basic and clean.
The elevators where under renovation, the breakfast was as basic as they come.
Good hotel if you need a bed for the night in this area of Jerusalem.

This out-dated hotel does not look anything like the photos on their website.
The pool area needs renovation. The pool water are not as clean as you would expect.
Spacious, clean but basic rooms. There is a mini-bar fridge in the rooms (we stayed on the 15th floor and an LCD tv.
The hotel hosts large groups, and at breakfast it's noisy. The food is nothing but OK compare to other Israeli hotels of this standard.
We stayed with 3 kids in 2 connected rooms.
We had a car hence public transportation was not an issue for us, but there is a bus station right in front of the hotel that you could use.
Just outside the entrance of the hotel was a very non-pleasant smell coming from the huge garbage containers that are located near the parking. The management should do something about this...
In our next vacation in Jerusalem we'll probably take another hotel.

The first thing AC was not working, the service in the reception was horrible highly not recommend even that the price is cheap for Jerusalem hotels but it's not worth it .
Another thing in the reservation we have told that we're getting room wait view to the pool and instead we got view to a parking lot.
Btw look on the window pic they're so dirty.

Nice room, nice lounge, good breakfast. Was confused at first by the "Rimonim". Seems to just be called Shalom Hotel Jerusalem. Big red sign on top just says "Shalom." Decent for the price. We had no complaints.

The worst experience staying in a hotel. The rooms very dirty. They do not clean and only put clean towels. Unsafe place, I left some personal items to be able to travel to Jordan and pick them up when I returned to Jerusalem and when I arrived they simply told me that you had lost them, that surely some other guest had taken them, they told me all of the above without taking responsibility for it, They did not solve anything, they simply disclaimed any responsibility. I would never stay at this hotel again. I hope my comment can save someone from living an experience like this. Don't be fooled the hotel doesn't even look like it does in the photos

Travellers, beware of the ultimate "bait and switch" property. This out-dated and rotting montrosity of a hotel does not look anything like the photos on their website. I was scehduled for five nights at the Rimonim Shalom Hotel, and suffered through each one. I should have been warned when they charged my credit card UPON CHECK IN, before I'd been upstairs to see my room. Read on, friends (pay attention to #15.

1) The entire building is decrepid and in disrepair.
2) The hotel has "sick building syndrome" and will make you sick (as I was each night)
3) It was established in 1972 and only the lobby has been upgraded; the rooms, halls and elevators are straight from 1972, inlcuding the mattresses, carpet, sinks, toilets, hardware and tub.
4) You can see the rust in the filthy elevators (feeling safe yet?). Elevators are really unclean.
5) Hallways and elevators are not air-conditioned.
6) Paint is peeling.
7) Wall paper is peeling, yellowed and lifting.
8) Original 1972 carpets are filthy, crunchy, vile and disgusting. Clearly they've never been cleaned. I'm serious.
9) My bathroom was full of black mold and mildew. Filthy tub. "Grossed out" the entire time, and I'm not even close to be a germophobe; I can usually tought it out.
10) Bathroom in general was unsanitary.
11) The "towels" are actually rags we'd use for cleaning up messes at home, or for a painting project.
12) Phone: inoperative
13) Shower: sometimes inoperative
14) Toilet: inoperative half the time
15) The supposed "air conditioner" blew out HOT air that smelled like burning human hair since the ducts have clearly never been cleaned. I insisted (three calls to the front desk) they have the AC fixed and a technician removed the filter in front of me. There was literally a ONE INCH thick layer of compacted human hair blocking the air flow. Disgusting. He vacuumed it up right in my room so I got a close-up view of the lack of cleanliness in the building.
16) No new toilet paper rolls, you get the half roll (and the germs) from the previous guest.
17) Hallways are buckling and are wavy from the delapitated condition of the hotel.
18) Got sick to my stomach every time I ate breakfast or dinner there.
19) The lobby is upgraded since they spent money on the big bluff.
20) Upon arrival, you are greeted by the aroma of rotting trash, as the big (open) dumpsters are near the entrance to the hotel.
21) The front desk clerk told my sister "to stop calling me so much" and didn't pass on her messages and would not transfer her calls to my room (I guess it wouldn't have mattered since the phone only worked sporadically). I didn't receive important messages because of the bad mood of the clerk AND because the phone wasn't working.

Buy hey, the lobby sure looks nice!

This is a big hotel, with lots of tour groups coming and going and we were well catered for. BUT- I was attacked by a mad Russian man, whilst sitting in the bar with a group of men and women from our group one evening. He was another guest and he first of all tried to grab a friend and then later lunged at my neck from behind and I had to wrestle free from him. The group chased him away. The hotel reception/management first of all tried to excuse it by saying he was just drunk and implying our group were also drunk. But we were not and this man attacked me and we were not even speaking to him, he spoke no English and he was sitting behind us. I protested that he should be spoken too, told to leave the hotel- really the police should have arrested him as it was witnessed by 7 other people. Nothing, the receptionist staff and hotel staff present spoke above me in Hebrew, which I don't understand and then eventually said they would speak to the Manager. That evening we returned to the hotel and the mad Russian was standing on the hotel front steps watching all the tour groups arrive back. The receptionist called me over and I pointed him out- they said they knew who he was and were keeping an eye on him. That was it. I asked if I could make a written complaint. I was handed a blank sheet of A4- not official Hotel paper and wrote out an account of what happened. This was already the following evening at 5pm. I was told it would be given to the manager and the manager or security would speak to me. Four hours later at 9pm, I again went to reception to ask what was happening- the receptionist called the security man over- and more talk in Hebrew- and then the security man asked me what happened. I again told him. He said we know who he is , he is leaving tomorrow. Our group was also leaving the next day. I asked him if he was concerned that there was an evil man at loose around the hotel who may attack any woman, including staff, that he chose to. A shrug of the shoulders- what do you want me to do? He was drunk - as they excused and explained it. Well, it was clear they didn't want to do anything. I was told ' this is bad for the hotel, its never happened before'. I told him it was bad for me I had never been attacked before and did not feel safe that he was still at large around the hotel. He apologised that it happened as di the receptionist. I figured if this was the staff attitude then I didn't want to face the police, so I decided to let the matter go. The women in our group for the last 2 days went around the hotel in pairs or groups out of fear. Sure the hotel were not responsible for this mad Russian man- but they did not do anything about it. I was a stranger in their country and they did not help me. They even let him stay at the hotel for another day and night until he was due to leave anyway, they did not speak to him about the incident or call the police.Their only concern was to hush the event up and not let their reputation suffer. They have security guards on the door but they seem to have no security training.
So- decide for your selves if you want to stay at this hotel, as they were so concerned about reputation I decided to write a tripadvisor review about my experience, and you can make an informed decision for yourselves.

The next morning as I was leaving I found the courage to confront the man himself- as he was again standing at the front steps, talking to the security man no less!! when he was sober and surrounded by people- he wasn't such a big guy! I think even though he had no English- he understood F**k you and a hand gesture.

If there is zero stars I would give it to this chain
1. It is school camp, staying there for 4 nights and the breakfast and dinner buffet is exactly same. As if they are using leftover from the dy before.

Food has no taste just volume to feed 500-600 guests.

Highly racism staff,
The boy captain came to unload the bus after 3-4 bags they realize our color they stopped and even disappeared

Elevator
Always has problems, you ask for 3rd floor you find it going to 13 and stop then back to 7 floor and stop again and then back to any floor.
It happen more than ten times with our group

We checked in 2 Times as we left the hotel for three days
When we came second times the front desk told us the room will be ready at 8:30pm or 9:00 pm. Yes you are right it is 8:00-9:00 the reason the staff are in religious holiday (lie as most of staff are not Jews).
After fighting it ended up to 4:00 pm.

I need more time to write more negatives but I am not wasting my time with review about this terrible hotel
