The room was large but the sink was broken, so was the faucet and no towels in the room. The woman at the reception said there was no maintenance because of the holidays. Disappointing.

Go in the late afternoon when the Jerusalem air, light, and weather are so perfect. Beautiful, relaxing atmosphere and a great view from the small plaza/observatory alongside the windmill.

This was the first neighborhood built outside the walls of Jerusalem. It overlooks the old city and in all it's a small neighborhood full of small streets with lovely houses and lots of flowers blooming. There is also a windmill built in 1848 that was in use for 20 years and now is a tourist attraction. It's a cultural center... More

I haven't been here for 15 years and it was exciting to see how well this area is preserved. The architecture is stunning and so are some of the views. Worth a walk through the area

Take a walk around the wind mill of Montefiori and immagine nothing else around except this long new building ready with studios but no one ready to live here outside the walls of the old city and maybe you feel like living at the end of the 19th century:)
