“Nie place in great area!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 November 2011

I stayed here 7 nights. It was inexpensive, close to a great restaurant area, and walking distance to the Jaffa gate. They had a wonderful Israeli kosher breakfast each day. Service was good, room was clean (a little dusty though). Staff were young and nice. Bilingual--Hebrew and English.

Downside-- not handicapped assessible. A little dark and depressing, could use some upgrading. Noisy.

But can't beat the location and the price!

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the top floor if you're willing to do the steps. Quieter up there.

I came from NYC for a family wedding...1st time in Israel; had found the place online. I was well pleased with my 7 night stay; nice small room, slept well, loved the great breakfast and the helpful staff. The location is good and I will stay there again.

Room Tip: I saw no other rooms, but mine was quiet and just fine for my purposes.

WE had planned to stay at this hotel for 3 nights as it was recommended by friends. Although set in a wonderful location in the German quarter, about 20 minutes from the old city walking, it is modest at best. Our biggest issue was the noise. Even when the movie theatre (below the hotel) was not operating, the walls were noticeably thin so you could hear everything in the hallway. Didn't help that there was no carpeting. Rooms were tiny. Staff was ok but nothing special. Breakfast was mediocre.

Room Tip: definitley ask to be away from the movie theatre... but it may not help

Colony_Hotel, Manager at A Little House in the Colony, responded to this review, 14 November 2011
Dear Guest,

We appreciate you for taking your time and writing a review. I am sad to see that you had an unsatisfactory stay.

As for your complaints, our hotel is a charming and inviting European-style hotel, located in a Templer building.
Therefore we don't have carpeting in the rooms, in order to keep the essence of the German Colony.

Regarding the rooms, they are standard double size rooms and quiet. Indeed we have cheap economy rooms, but the rest of the rooms are quiet.

We are glad that you enjoyed our great location.

Best regards,
Noam Draiman | Manager

Stayed here in the Gottlib's Zimmer room with my friend for two nights.
Great location! just steps from Emek Refa'im with lots of cafes and placed to eat.
It's only a 15-20 minute walk from the old city, 1 minute from a nice running path, and 15-20 minutes from the shuk and other shopping area and bars.
The staff were great! Spoke great english and were knowledgable and very friendly.
Breakfast was yummy!! Our room had a wee balcony which we loved!
I wish we were still there :)

Room Tip: Gottlib's Zimmer room (double room, one bed)

It was a great location for walking to the Old City. We felt very safe there, so we even took evening walks around the neighborhood. The room was small but clean which was all we needed, since we spent most of our time sightseeing. The reception staff was very helpful and knowledgeable. They arranged our day trips through a local tour company and called our taxi for our return to the airport. The buffet breakfast was good. We would stay there again.
