Where to stay in Jerusalem

Although it lacks a big selection of mid-range options, Jerusalem provides plenty of choices in the top-end hotel category. The Old City contains the bulk of Jerusalem's small hotels, inexpensive hostels, and religious hospices, all of which appeal to budget-conscious travelers. West Jerusalem offers additional options in the form of guesthouses and bigger hotels, some of which boast five-star ratings. If you just need a bed, consider a youth hostel, where you can choose between private and common rooms with Wi-Fi included.

  • Amazing! The DEAD SEA SCROLLS! A very 'cool' place to spend a hot afternoon. No Flash Photos! They will escort you out, I saw it happen! (Never saw that guy again) 😎
  • After seeing the place where the dead sea scrolls were found and being able to come and see the artifacts and the dead Sea Scroll was amazing
  • Super interesting if you go with time and energy. It took me 2 hours to see it entirely (read everything). Big groups of students usually go there so it's better to go with noise-cancelling headphones.
  • Great place to see while staying in Jerusalem. They have the dead sea scrolls, the world's tiniest bible, a full scale model of Jerusalem in the 2nd temple period and more. A must see.
  • Very interesting. The place has a movie for kids too so they can understand the story. Very cool
