Ok...but not my first choice
Reviewed 1 day ago

We stayed for 5 nights and had booked a room with executive club privileges.

The Good: The lobby and other public areas are very nicely done and very attractive. The entire staff was extremely helpful and courteous. The breakfast buffet was quite extensive and everything was delicious. The hotel is located in a very nice quiet neighborhood. We had a nicely renovated room with access to the Club lounge.

The Bad: Because the walls of the hotel are at strange angles, our small window looked DIRECTLY into other guest rooms just a few feet away. This meant we had to keep the curtains closed at ALL TIMES or else there was no privacy. This was a BIG downer for us.

There was no outside view as our room faced the inner courtyard and directly into other guest rooms. At times it was extremely loud because of the courtyard when there were a lot of guests gathered there.

This was especially disappointing because I specifically asked for a quiet room and I had paid a lot of money to upgrade.

But being unable to open the curtains was the most annoying part.

The bathroom in our room was quite tiny. Poor lighting for putting on make-up. Some days we couldn’t get wash cloths. Only one bar of soap was left in the room for both the sink and the shower. The last couple of days in the room the shower gel and shampoo were not replenished although we got two tubes of conditioner.

Although there were a lot of electrical sockets, we couldn’t find any USB ports.

The previous guest in our room must have dropped safety pins on the floor which were never vacuumed up. As a test we left them there to see how long it would take to get the carpet vacuumed. The safety pins were there for 4 days of our 5 day stay. I also suspect the carpet wasn’t being vacuumed because I could feel lots of crunchy things when I walked around barefoot.

I also noticed a lot of bits of debris accumulating on the carpet along the walls in the hallways which led me to believe that the hallways weren’t being thoroughly vacuumed either.

There are a lot of large tour groups that use this hotel and when they were there the breakfast arrangements were insufficient. Many days you couldn’t find an empty clean table for breakfast. There was only one person making eggs for hundreds of guests.
It was difficult to capture the attention of servers walking around with coffee pots. Long waits for morning coffee.

Since we had paid for club privileges, we decided to check out the breakfast in the club lounge like we do at many other hotels when we book executive club rooms. However, the breakfast offerings at the club lounge were very skimpy, much skimpier than at other hotels we’ve stayed at in Israel. So we had to endure the crowded situation in the main dining room.

While the neighborhood where the hotel is located is a beautiful neighborhood, we felt there were other hotels better located for sightseeing.

Bottom line: while all the people on the staff were very nice, I probably wouldn’t choose to stay here again.

Great staff in Business Lounge
Reviewed 2 days ago

I just stayed five nights in the Inbal for a conference in Jerusalem. I had to meet with several people in the business lounge. The team there was so profession and polite. Yehudit and Borqan took amazing care of us! I would stay here again. They even had a spread laid out for us in the evening with reserved seating--without our asking.

The rooms are brand-new and beautiful.

A very fine hotel
Reviewed 3 days ago

The Inbal continues to be a very fine hotel with a spectacular location in Jerusalem. If your budget allows get a room with a view of the Old City.

The newly renovated rooms are spacious and well appointed. The staff are friendly and courteous. As is typical in Israel the breakfast is a challenge to those trying to restrict their food input. My advice is don’t and enjoy the delicious offerings.

We have stayed at the Inbal many times over the years and will continue to do so.

Don't get fooled by the Deluxe Room
Reviewed 5 days ago

We stayed at the Inbal for one night, and booked two rooms. We were told in advance the hotel was full (it was Yom Kipur) and that only 'Deluxe' rooms were left available. We had no issues with that and took them. The issue was that the rooms had nothing that can justify the 'Deluxe' title, and certainly not the extra cost that comes along with it. Same size and amenities than a regular room (see for yourself with the pano view of the room attached) but at an extra cost. What's the point? One of the room had a balcony but the 2nd one was presented as having one, except that you could barely put one person standing there. I reached out to the hotel twice on the matter but they found nothing wrong about it..This is extremely disappointing for a hotel that I personnaly considered until then as one of the top locations in Jerusalem, notably for its ambiance and sort of warm atmosphere. Those features might still be there, but clearly the amenities and post-sale service are way behind the overall magnificience the building conveys. And at the end of the day, amenities and service are a huge part of the high price you pay, especially for a deluxe-labelled experience.
