My wife and I have used the services of Jerusalem Lodges four times for one-month Sabbaticals in Jerusalem. Each time the owners (previously the Ellis family and now the Alon family) have proved reliable, courteous, and helpful. The apartments have been clean and neat and in the locations we requested. The improved web site now offers pictures of each apartment so the customer knows what to expect. Jerusalem, of course, is at the heart of every Zionist’s dream!
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.
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 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!
Recently we rented the Disraeli-apartment from Jerusalem Lodges two times for about 10 consecutive days in a period of eight months. The apartment is situated in a quiet street. It is small but comfortablet, just well adapted for two persons. When we arrived, it was really very clean, both times. We contacted Azi Alon by e-mail from home; his response was always quick polite, and cordial. During our stay in Jerusalem he did everything to make us feel at home, he was very helpful and attentive. We are convinced that next time that we will go to Jerusalem we will contact Azi again for the rent of an apartment.
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!
We rented a lovely 2 bedroom apartment (16 Rabbi Akiva) in Jerusalem through Jerusalem Lodges during Chanukah 2011. The apartment was centrally located; a 10 minute walk to Mamilla Mall and a 5 minute walk to the restaurants near Ben Yehuda street. It was clean, well-furnished and comfortable. The bedrooms were well proportioned and the beds were terrific. It had all conveniences of home (satellite TV; WIFI; microwave; meat and dairy dishes etc). Azi and his team previewed the apartment for me before I rented it, and their description and pictures were accurate. When I arrived Azi met me at the apartment with the owner, and they patiently walked through everything until I was satisfied. The owner came back at the end of the period to walk through the apartment. Whenever I called Azi he called me right back and answered any questions I had. I would happily rent from Jerusalem Lodges on my next visit to Israel!
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 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
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.
