“*** Rooms at ***** Prices”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 January 2012

Pros- Beautiful building, good location in quiet area just above Yemin Moshe and short walk to Mamilla Mall and Jaffa Gate, fabulous breakfast, nice common areas
Cons- Mid-level Hilton-type rooms at high prices, mostly aloof staff, very intermittent free wi-fi

Just stayed there for 7 nights over New Years. I have travelled a great deal over the years and also have in-depth knowlege of the hotel industry as I work in it, so my opinion is one based on experience.

The service at the Inbal was absolutely fantastic! The food was great too, and the rooms are very nice from my Israel experiences (Including David Citadel) but the friendly, positive and helpful staff is what makes this hotel stand out.

The desk staff were not only attentive and went out of their way, but took care of many details and arrangements for my family and I ever without being asked. They were very personable and friendly and remembered guests names and information. Many I spoke to, remarked about this.

The hotel is in a nice area, a few minutes walk from Kind David and the David Citadel, but without the level of stuffiness or artificial formality. When travelling with the family, staff that have a sense of humour and still be effecient is exactly the right mix.

The spa staff were fantastic and flexible, and my greatest compliments go to the Executive Lounge staff. (If you have the opportunity, this is a great upgrade).
The main breakfast buffet is spectacular.
There was a slight issue with the room cards erased, which I am told is being looked, but otherwise Perfect!

As someone else mentioned, take advantage of billing services or meals to your room. They deduct VAT from prices. At the Spa, a guest saves 10% and then a 16% additional VAT reduction. The pricing is less that in North America and a perfect way to end a long day of touring and walking!

I would not hesitate to reccommend this as your top Jerusalem choice.

Room Tip: A family suite is a perfect choice when with the kids!

My husband and two daughters (13 & 11) stayed in a Family Room for 4 nights - king bed and 2 cots. Nice room but bathroom was very small. Kids loved the pool and ping pong table; we loved the amazing breakfast buffet and beautiful lobby and courtyard (and large workout room). Hotel is short walk to German Colony restaurants and shops. Excellent service.

excellent hotel, great service, nice staff. try to get a room on a higher floor so get a beautiful view each time you take the elevator. consider eating dinners in the hotel - nice ambviance and save on the VAT tax too when you apply it to your room.

Room Tip: see if you can get a room that gives you access to the exec lounge on the top floor. sometimes the f...

I stayed at the Inbal for 5 nights last week. The hotel rooms need to be freshened up if not completely renovated. It's the same exact room as it was 20 years ago when I first stayed there.
