Fabulous 8.6 From 55 reviews

Very good 8.0
Great option for 3-7 days.
Rafael Residence is an excellent choice for a stay of three or more days. The staff is extremely helpful and the rooms are clean and have space for getting settled, though not enough to feel “at home”. The heat and a/c work well, the showers are fine and the towels are great. The kitchenette is fine for breakfast or simple snacking or small meals. The location is great for walking to the central neighborhoods of Jerusalem and the Old City. There are two main roads within one block and another within three, so buses and taxis are a breeze. Lots of necessary shopping within a block and more within a five minute walk, including a makolet, good bakery, cafes, and produce stand all just steps away.

Overall a positive experience
Staff was amazing at being on top of our stay. Contacted us several times to make sure the rooms were set up according to our needs. Location is excellent. Only downside was that the room was a bit small for 3 adults and we ended up having to take an additional room for the 3rd person last minute at the peak rate.

Bed was very comfortable and AC worked good. Vert nice quite area with wine, food shops. I did not give 5 stars just because is a little bit far. Thank you guys for a great stay

Exceptional 10.0
The location in Baca beautiful end very peaceful compared to the city. The management and housekeeping staff are friendly, professional and efficient. It is a very basic hotel but clean and comfortable. The kitchenette is a great alternative to going out for all meals, and the local specialty stores are nearby.

Good 6.0
The apartments are quite nice (small) and the location is in a great neighborhood. The parking garage is useful if you have a car. The kitchen is nice too. But Jerusalem can get quite cold in the winter and the heater was only in the living room so the bedroom could get *really* cold. Service was not great. I asked for a shabbat hot water plate (twice) and it was not provided. The phone was broken. The safe was not enabled. A promised 10% discount at a local cafe had been discontinued and management didn't bother to delete it from the binder in the room.
Abraham, us6 night business trip
Exceptional 10.0
This is a wonderful location and the suites are beautiful. My only concern is that the kitchen had only dinnerware and flatware but no cooking utensils. I asked for a pan and sharp knife and they were promptly provided. I don’t know if they would have provided more equipment if asked. Also, there isnt a 24 desk but a ph # you can call for emergencies.

The suite was clean but very much smaller than expected since it was rated as superb. I would rate it as good and adequate. The toilet seat was broken and the air conditioner did not work properly. The bathroom at the reception was not clean and the coffee facility was disappointing. The manager was helpful and nice.
