Azi of Jerusalem Lodges provided me with top notch service, extreme patience and a complete and total commitment to insuring that my stay was perfect. Upon arrival everything in the apartment (Plugot Hakotel) was exactly as promised and all the special requests I had asked for had been attended to. I did need to call several times for small things that I wanted taken care of and he never made me feel that I was a nuisance and was kind and patient, most of all he always took my calls or returned my call within 5 minutes (a rarity nowadays). After I left the country he was very helpful in dealing with a few things I had left behind.I’ve traveled for 30 years and never found anyone in this field of work so honest, responsive, thorough, caring and professional. I will use him again and I highly recommend him to anyone in Israel who needs a top of the line real estate agent.
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.
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.
Thank you for your kindness and sincere attention regarding our apartment rental. We truly enjoyed our two months here in Jerusalem. It was very nice getting to know you. Please send our best to Emunah. Gerri and Paul Kurland
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
This cottage at 2 Marcus was really great for me. I would recommend it to anyone who can negotiate the stairs to the loft. I walked everywhere I wanted to go. The neighborhood is beautiful and the apartment was very comfortable. Having the garden was just terrific. I used the table outside and the cottage is shaded so I never even used the air conditioning. The wi-fi worked well. I also appreciated that it was easy to work with both you and Rivanna. It was clean, it was easy for me to get a response whenever I had any questions. and I was really happy here. Thanks.
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.
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.
Dear Azi, Thank you for EVERYTHING! We can’t tell you how much we appreciate all your help. You and your wife run a wonderful business, and we wish you both continued success – you deserve it!
