Review: King Solomon’s Hotel, Jerusalem

A short stroll across a green valley from the Old City, King Solomon’s Hotel in Jerusalem was my home for four nights.


  • Location – its very close to the Old City, and not too far for the high street of Jerusalem
  • The pool is perfect for cooling off
  • Buffet breakfast
  • The bed is huge!


  • There was a group of middle-aged American women getting in touch with their Jewish roots who got a bit boisterous of an evening
  • There’s not many alternatives for places to get food within walking distance

Would I go Back?

I think I would try to get something a little cheaper – King Solomon wasn’t expensive (~£100/night), but I think I may have been able to get a better deal. Whether it would have been as close to the Old City, have as good a breakfast and pool as well, I’m not sure…
