Situated next to Jaffa Gate within the old citywall you have the best starting point to walks in the old town and also to some good restaurants. The building itself is more than 100 years old and a refurbishment would be useful..... especially the windows, since it is very noisy around the hotel, and to sleep...... well forget it. Life...

The hotel surely has seen better days, room looks a bit shabby and outdated, but the place has a certain vibe. Location is really great, however it also can get noisy, the breakfast is excellent! Don't miss the rooftop!

Not luxury hotel, but nice enough and the location is the best. Parking was easy at Karta. Contrary to other information on this site, the parking is easy, you CAN park overnight, and you CAN park on sabbath. Parking is less than 5 minute walk to hotel.

The best-best-best location! 5-7 minutes to all places you need in the old town. But rooms... Vintage maybe. If you come to walk/travel and will stay there only for nights - no prob. But be ready for strange smell, too old bedsheet and an absence of meat on breakfast. But the price is fair. The owner is very kind and...

For those looking for a great deal, great location, and great service, this is ideal. I love being inside the Old City and this spot is minutes walk to the Church of the Holy Sepulcher, the Western Wall, or Mamilla. The building has character and architectural interest. The rooms are simple, clean, and have more than adequate bathrooms. The breakfast...

If your after luxurious quality then this is not the place for you. This is though, a wonderfully friendly, well placed and fun place to stay. Located in the old city, right opposite the Citadel, it could not be handier for sightseeing. The staff are terrific, they go out of their way to be of help, they can arrange tours...

Home away from Home! We arrived at Imperial early and they allowed us to check in with no problem. Right in the middle of Christian quarters. Beautiful view and a lot of things to do. Restaurants in the area are awesome! A+++++ in all areas!

The hotel is in the middle of all the action of Jaffa Gate and has the character to boot. I'm a female American, solo traveler and I was well taken care of here. Go to Jerusalem and stay here for at least a night when you do.

Stayed there for 4 nights last week of December for a family holiday. Nice location - just inside old town near jaffa gate - Tourist information office is adjoining, restaurants, money changer, provisions shops are all nearby. Old but well-maintained property, with very helpful staff. Lobby and sitting area have been done up in a very charming and homely manner....
