We had an excellent stay and will definitely recommend the property to others. I loved the location. Thank you, Azi, for your wonderful communications and service. We rented the 13A and 13B Bezalel apartments for just over a week in December 2013 for use by two couples. 13A is the larger of the two apartments. It features a couch (shown in the photos) that pulls out to accommodate additional sleepers if there are more than 2 in your party. The furnishings and fixtures are quite modern and the apartments are light, airy, and 13A is quite spacious in contrast to many other rental units in the neighborhood. The apartments are on the ground floor of a busy street, but we were generally not inconvenienced by traffic noises or street sounds. We arrived in the aftermath of the big December 2013 snowfall, and the weather was much, much colder than normal. Both Azi at the rental agency and the owner herself via her husband, were extremely responsive to our need for additional heat during the early part of our stay. We received immediate attention upon inquiring and were very pleased with their service. The apartments are well appointed with both dairy and meat dishes. There is a 2 burner electric stove and a microwave oven, but no conventional oven. There are washer and dryer facilities available and this made it very convenient to pack fewer clothes and launder them while in Jerusalem. There is a Shabbat water pot and some basic amenities such as a supply of tea, salt and sugar. The location was excellent for us–close to public transit and taxis, situated between two food markets (we liked the Ben Yehuda Market one block up the hill), near the Mahane Yehuda shuk, light rail, and a number of very nice restaurants. As is the case in almost all Nachlaot residences, there will be occasional plumbing odors of sewer system gas that enter the apartment. These are infrequent and can be handled by leaving the bathroom exhaust fan on. The fan has good velocity and the water pressure in the shower is excellent. You will definitely enjoy your shower. The rental photos are extremely accurate. What you see is what you get. We would definitely rent 13 Bezalel again on a future trip.

We had a great stay on the apartment on Chopin. We found everything clean and delightful. We found the living space great to accommodate guests for meals over shabbos. The extra touch with the slippers and shampoo was much appreciated especially on our arrival. Gayle Wolfe

My husband and I have used Jerusalem Lodges for our housing in Jerusalem four times and have been very pleased with the service and accommodations. The staff considered our requirements and found us suitable, comfortable, well-located, and affordable apartments (12 Lincoln, 17 Washington). If there was ever a problem with the facility, they addressed it promptly. Their response by e-mail was always quick and cordial. We would recommend Jerusalem Lodges to anyone looking for a rental apartment in Jerusalem.

I want to thank Azi for finding us an apartment in Jerusalem (12 Lincoln). He was very efficient and the rates were very reasonable. My wife and I were very pleased with the service. If there was any problem, Azi was there immediately. He took care of every issue quickly. I was very pleased with Jerusalem Lodges and would certainly recommend them to friends. We will use them again in the future.

We had a fantastic experience using Jerusalem Lodges. Azi and Emuna are wonderful managers and made sure everything was taken care of! They provided excellent customer service and were always friendly. The apartment (4 Harav Berlin) was very lovely–fully renovated, well-designed, aesthetically pleasing, and made our stay in Jerusalem very pleasant. We highly recommend both the individual apartment and the service as a whole. Thank you!

Azi and his team made everything so easy – from finding the perfect place in the right location to sorting out the details of fees and agreements. The apartment was lovely, just as described, and so well cared for. I will most definitely use them again in the future!

Azi – Thank you for an exceptional experience. You provided us with a reasonably-priced, attractive, immaculately clean apartment in an ideal central location. More importantly, you went the extra mile to accommodate my family: from stocking milk in our refrigerator to allowing us to utilize your office prior to our departure. We could not have asked for a more pleasant experience. I would highly recommend Jerusalem Lodges to anyone renting an apartment in Yerushalayim.

Thank you again, Azi Alon, for making our hunt for the perfect apartment in Jerusalem a successful endeavor. You took our vague but demanding descriptions and translated them into exactly what we wanted. Because of your assistance, our time in Israel was even better than we hoped it could be. We will certainly contact Jerusalem Lodges when we return.

I would like to take this opportunity to comment on our stay in Jerusalem from 01 Dec, 2010 thru 06 Jan 2011. Our initial contact with our agent Azi Alon was conducted over the internet without any problems whatsoever. Azi provided ideal directions and met me on time at the first residence, I stayed at two locations(17 Washington, 4 Harav Berlin). He ensured that I was familiar with the apartment and the surrounding neighborhood and called periodically during our stay to see how we fared with the accommodations. Azi went above & beyond what was expected to make our stay very comfortable and enjoyable. One time in particular, when I requested an upgraded internet (secure wireless & more channels for the cable TV) I was amazed to see Yehuda there in two days with the technician installing a new system. This is just one instance of many helpful services they provided. Without question I would plan on using their services again and would highly recommend them to others traveling to & planning extended stays in Jerusalem. Delivered with Pleasure,

We rented 2 David Marcus during Sukkot this year. It is a charming apartment. The loft, the window seat, but mostly the extraordinary garden! We spent a lot of time just sitting in the garden relaxing after long walks in Jerusalem. The location was convenient and quiet. The apartment had all the amenities we needed — a functional kitchen, Wi-Fi, plenty of storage, comfortable bed, AC, and at a fair price. Azi was great to work with on the details of the rental.
