Is it a kosher place?
Are all hotel activities available on Saturday?
We are a none religious family, thinking on staying during a weekend , but we are afraid it is a religious oriented hotel.
Anyone can comment on it?
It is a kosher facility-breakfasts are plentiful and good (even without the meat). I am observant but do believe the pool is still open on Saturday as are any other facilities. Comfortable rooms, helpful staff, great location- highly recommend.
I am not kosher and I didn't notice anything that closed about the hotel. There is an elevator and two floors. Maybe the elevator won't work or they will have it on "automatic" from friday sundown to Saturday sundown. The breakfast buffet was dairy and included fish but I don't recall it having meat--so I think it was kosher for those who need it. It's a great place, you'll love it. Easy bus ride to all the sights (or taxi); out of the craziness of the city but very easy to get to Yad Vashem, Shouk, and Old City. The pool and view etc. were really special.
Food is kosher
It is religious but some people is not religious
Hello, within a proximity of 200m there is a giant gym including several swimming pools that guests of the hotel can use freely. As far that I can remember the hotel's spa is not active
It is a kosher hotel. The sports club / pools, etc. are open and available on Saturday.
The hotel is kosher. it is not extrmely observant so I believe you can take your car and drive around. But most areas of jerusalem are either closed to traffic on Saturday or just not opened.The breakfast buffet every day is excellent. On Saturday they do not make fried eggs/eggs to order. There is an elevator that works on a timer and is for shabbat observant people. You'll have to take taxis if you don't have a car as the public transportation does not work on shabbat.
You will enjoy the hotel, its facilites, the meals, its locaion and jerusalem in general. Have a wonderful trip.
