We traveled in Jordan not knowing when we would enter Israel so we came upon this rental late. However, between the two people handling the contract we managed to make it happen at short notice. Since it's a new place, short notice might not always work out. I suspect when news gets out this studio apartment will fill up quickly. Lauren handled all the email contact, responding very promptly. Avi takes care of everything else. And what a smooth property manager he has been! We've never felt so well taken care of in a foreign country.
The apartment is like having a big room in a boutique hotel, only with lots of extras. The kitchen is well-equipped and we managed to make wonderful meals with produce bought in the vast array of shops and supermarkets in the immediate area. Given its excellent location, we planned visits in such a way that we could cater for ourselves for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The bathroom is spacious, very clean and has lots of hot water. The whole space is well serviced with heating and cooling facilities. The bed is superb and there are is ample bedding supplied. There is a hair dryer and more than enough towels.
In terms of location, I don't think it could be any better. It takes only about 30 minutes to get to the Old Town and the Jaffa Gate. The walk is easy and there's a way to do it via a wonderful shopping mall. Even less distance in other directions takes you to the Israel Museum, Yad Vashem, the Knesset and a few other delightful spots of interest that Avi brought to our attention. We didn't need public transit and if a taxi is required the cost is only between 20 to 30 shekels.
On top of all this, the apartment is located to the rear of the building with a balcony overlooking private gardens. The really nice thing about all that is that there is virtually no street noise. We slept-in on our first day, things being as quiet as they are!
If you are a couple and wish to base yourselves in Jerusalem, I can wholeheartedly recommend this apartment rental.
