We found House 57 initially because it is only a block from my son and his family, but we go back because of the outstanding hospitality and cozy rooms. House 57 has been our base in Jerusalem at least four times, and while we miss Dani and Ilona, Nir is an excellent host. We felt as though he were a...

I have just returned from Israel and House 57 once again. I wish I knew how many times I have stayed House 57 but they are to numerous to count at this point. House 57 is located at 57 Midbar Sinai Street Jerusalem. It is close to the train, bus stops, and taxies will come to your door to pick...

First of all, the owner was very kind. The rooms were clean and pleasant. The neighborhood was quite and near at the train station and a supermarket. The kitchen was fully equiped so you can make your own breakfasts and dinners. I really enjoy the view from the balcony. The rooms have a/c, microwave, bathroom and a small refrigerator.

Last year we stayed at House 57 for 5 days; this year, we stayed for two weeks. We chose to return because of House 57's great location, friendly atmosphere, pleasant, quiet neighborhood, and gracious host. House 57 is within easy walking distance of a little neighborhood shopping center where we could shop for pastries, groceries, and much more, and where...

If what you want is an American style hotel, don't read further. But if you like a simple but very clean room with a small but clean bathroom/shower, big flat screen/numerous channels, good breakfast, hospitable host/owner who'll help you with any eventuality, this'll be the place. Located in a nice neighborhood in good proximity to the center city (car/electric rail)....

As independent travelers we have stayed in numerous places around the world and what really stands out at House 57 is the owner, Nir. House 57 has been operating for 20 plus years. As a former tech executive, Nir has traveled the world and knows what is important to offer visitors. It shows in the upgrade work he's completed AND...

My wife and I stayed four nights recently. Nir has 6-7 rooms, two small, two larger, and a couple are family size. We stayed in a small room, which was adequate for us. The owner Nir is quite helpful and the location is close to a small shopping mall with a supermarket, ATM, and restaurants, also just a 7-8 minute...

Okay, so while House 57 isn't exactly the most luxurious B&B I've ever enjoyed, what it lacks in comfort is made up for in hospitality and convenience. If I wanted plush linens and "heavenly beds", I would have stayed at one of the expensive hotels. But I wanted an affordable place to spend 10 days with my friends during Sukkot....

We came to Jerusalem for Sukkot, and stayed for 9 nights at House 57. It is a charming home turned B&B. The owner, Nir, is absolutely delightful. He is attentive, helpful, informative, and kind. He will go out of his way to make sure you have what you need. The house sits on a hill in a beautiful, safe neighborhood....

I just spent 10 days at House 57, a bed and breakfast in North Jerusalem. It is one of my favorite places to be. House 57 is conveniently located in Jerusalem, - a city that can be the pinnacle of inconvenience (especially if you don't know where you are going). It is easily reached coming in from Ben Gurion, convenient...
