Rafael Residence Jerusalem
Ranked #15 of 60 Jerusalem B&B and Inns
Reviewed 6 July 2017 via mobile

We were here for ten days as part of a larger study group. We can't say enough good things about the accommodations and service. This is an extended stay, all suites place, and can't be compared directly to a big tourist hotel. Lots of space, full kitchenette and separate bedroom, plus parking. Terrific location, with convenience stores, great bakery and numerous cafes right at hand. Lior solved many problems, especially when our rental car was dead and we couldn't get Avis on the phone. He could and we were on our way within an hour. A memorable stay.

Stayed: June 2017, travelled with friends

Very conveniently located for those who want to stay in southern Jerusalem. In the middle of a residential neighborhood, on a quaint bustling block with tons of cafes, stores, etc. The hotel has only suites- bedroom + living room and kitchen. Very comfortable, spotless, great if you want to cook/ feels like a mix between hotel and apartment. The owner, Lior, is superb. Most friendly, attentive individual, he gets to know all the guests, and caters to every need. I have brought three groups here as well- we rented out the penthouse and did all our shabbat meals there. The staff gave us everything we needed and were extremely helpful. Now when I have guests come for business (often) I exclusively put them up at this hotel!

Spotlessly clean. Everything thought of.
Helpful friendly staff. Great location. Perfect for a family. Bathroom is a little small and there's noise from rooms above and below but still highly recommend

This is the second time we have stayed at the Rafael Residence and returned because it offers so much. Our accommodation comprised a lounge, kitchenette, bathroom and bedroom, though I believe other options are available in the complex for larger families. Linen was changed regularly and the apartment cleaned daily. There are two televisions,a sofa/bed in the lounge, a fully equipped kitchenette in perfect working order, parking and all in all, Rafael provides excellent value for money. The Residence is purpose built on Bet Lechem Road in the gorgeous Jerusalem suburb of Bakka which boasts numerous caffes, restaurants and small and interesting shops. It is possible to walk to the Old City, Jerusalem city centre, Talpiot industrial centre and the 'Rakevet'. Thank you Aviva, Elli, Rami and Lior for always being available to help make our stay welcoming and comfortable. We will definitely return.

Very clean rooms. Good bed. Friendly and helpful staff. Great restaurants nearby. Loved being so close to the Harakevet path. Short walk to Emek Refaim (main thoroughfare for cute shops and great food and coffee.
