A roomy and comfortable apartment in a lovely area of Jerusalem. It contained everything we needed and was really quiet. Benyamin was really helpful, recommending restaurants and things to do in the area. He was very quick to respond to all my questions. I highly recommend staying there.
We loved our stay at this beautiful apartment in the German Colony. The location was perfect (near shops, restaurants and a supermarket with easy bus service everywhere) and the apartment was just as pictured. The owner was lovely to work with and provided us with a crib as requested. We are looking forward to returning!
This flat could not be more perfectly located. Metres away from bustlig Emek Refaim, with it shops and restaurants and the wonderful Rakevet promenade which winds all the way to the Jerusalem Zoo in one direction, and a short walk away to the new Tachanah, with even more shops, restaurants, outdoor entertainment space and amusements for little ones. The landlord, Benyamin, is responsive, responsible, and ready and willing to help make your stay as pleasant as possible. The flat was clean and tidy, bright and airy, and is fully equipped with everything...
I loved this place, great kitchen, washing machine for clothes, private balcony, all the things you could want in the German Colony. The entire apt was clean and in great condition. Couch, dining area, all great. One thing that really stood out was the organized info book for the guest, for the washing machine, wifi, etc. Supermarkets, restaurants, shops, all close, but the apt is secluded and quiet.
My family am I stayed here for 4 nights. The place was very clean and perfect for a family of 4. The place was as described in listing. We had maybe a 15 minute walk to city center of Jerusalem from the apt. If too hot, a cab was always nearby to take us in. Great location with many restaurant options. Would stay again if back in Jerusalem.
We enjoyed our journey very much. Accommodation in a nice, recently renovated apartment in an idyllic place like German Colony which has its special atmosphere made it even better. We can truly recommend You this Holiday apartment. It actually had everything we needed. The area is also so peaceful. Over all we liked the place, and just loved to listen the birds singing every morning and enjoyed our breakfast coffee in the patio. This was a lovely holiday in Israel.
This was a great location and we were able to walk to the Old City and the Israel Museum with help from Google in mapping out a route. There were plenty of restaurants around and a nice area about a ten minute walk to the old train station. Benyamin was in close contact and also stocked the refrigerator with milk and juice to welcome us. My husband and I had only have one regret, we wish we would have been able to stay longer. Next time.
We highly recommend this apartment. It was clean, quiet, well-kept, in a fantastic location, relatively spacious, and well-prepared for our arrival. Everything we needed for our stay was there, including linens, towels, toilet paper, dishwashing soap, laundry soap, even kiddush cup and candles. Very much appreciated. Major bus routes are steps away as are multiple good restaurants. The owner, Benyamin, was extremely responsive to all our requests and inquiries both before our arrival and during our stay. The photos are accurate. We felt very welcome, and wouldn't hesitate to recommend sweet masaryk to our friends, or to stay there again...
Like the other reviewers, I recommend this apartment for its location, tree filled balcony view, cleanliness, quiet and convenience. I have the following highlights to add. The walk down Masaryk Street away from Emek Refaim toward the Baka neighborhood leads through a pretty residential district and several parks, including a large playground with plenty for young children. It is a pedestrian path for much of the way. Also, there is a gym about three blocks south on Emek Refaim, immediately past the grocery store, where you can purchase a card for 11 visits for 500+ shekels. This was worth it to me because I needed a bike for knee therapy. Benyamin, the owner, was extraordinarily responsive....
This was an outstanding choice of rental. It is on a totally quiet street and yet only steps away from Emek Rafaim. Bright with lots of natural light and balcony is charming. Many cafes and little shops and markets just around the corner. Easy bus stops and walking to other locations. The owner, Benjamin, was super nice and highly responsive to little problems that came up. We would look forward to staying here again.
For a wonderful Jerusalem experience - close to Old City, Close to Mamila Mall, close to Machneh Yudah, quiet apartment with beautiful Jerusalem rooftop view from patio complete with all amenities. We found it to as beautiful as pictured. Quiet yet also in the center of the thriving German Colony, we enjoyed markets, shopping, coffee, restaurants, jogging, mere steps off the courtyard and a central starting point to destinations around the City and around the country. Why stay in a hotel?? Be a person, be an Israeli, stay here and really experience Jerusalem. If I can come back I wish to return to Masaryk 4. Thank you
I stayed at this apartment for a month in late May and June. This is a perfect location, just a few buildings from Emek Refaim, yet in a quiet neighborhood. You can't get a better location that this. The German Colony has loads of restaurants and coffee houses and it's only 15-20 minutes to the Old City. Lots of buses to all parts of the city and easy to get taxis. The apartment has a nice deck and great ventilation. The weather was pretty moderate while I was there and it cooled off at night. So I only used the air conditioner two nights, but when the A/C is needed, it works well. There's only A/C in the Living Room (that covers the kitchen-eating area) and the main bedroom. Not in the 2nd bedroom. The apartment has basic kitchen equipment for light meals. Not the greatest cook top, but it works. Binyamin, the owner, was very responsive to requests and let me stay late in the day I checked out since another guest wasn't coming in the next day. I'd definitely stay here again.
I stayed in the Masaryk apartment for 6 days, by myself, for a week of studying and meeting in and around the German colony. The apartment is exactly as the pictures show - balcony is great with a nice view of trees and rooftops, the bedrooms are comfortable, living room very clean and comfortable, kitchen had everything I could need. The location is great, especially if you are going to be in that part of town. I walked a block each morning to start the day at a coffeeshop. It's easy to walk around, the old train tracks converted to a greenway are a block behind the apartment - in general, it was a very comfortable, well-situated and lovely place to stay.
This apartment combines location, amenities and host support to make for a fantastic stay. Everything you need in-house is neat and clean. The location means that everything else is just a step away. Particularly enjoyable is the train track park accessible at the end of the street. A fabulous place to stay in all aspects
We so much enjoyed our stay at this very clean and comfortable apartment in the German Colony. It's location was perfect for us, just minutes from the Old City. Public transport was readily available, or a cab if you choose. The owner, Benyamin, got us all set up and familiar with the area when we arrived at the apartment. There are many very nice outdoor cafe's up and down the street just seconds away. Loved having a coffee on the balcony in the morning, and a glass of wine to finish the day in the evening. Our only regret was we didn't stay longer, next time we will. You certainly can't go wrong staying here, was very nice.
This apartment is quite close to the Old City, but situated in its own lively neighbourhood - easy for shops, restaurants, etc. The building is very quiet and peaceful. Convenient, central location, clean, roomy. Just as advertized! Benyamin was flexible and welcoming host and he had an admirable book of instructions even including places to park for free nearby
We had a very special time in Jerusalem and our accommodation was comfortable, clean and ideally located, so that we could travel into the centre of Jerusalem easily. We enjoyed breakfast on the balcony, overlooking a quiet courtyard. There are shops nearby and a good cafe to enjoy a coffee or shared lunch. It was spacious and light and we felt comfortable throughout. Highly recommended!
We recently stayed at this apartment in the German Colony. It was ideal for the 3 of us and very clean and comfortable. The location was ideal and the apartment offered all of the comforts needed for a holiday. The owner was very helpful with all the questions we asked and we would stay there again. We would recommend this rental to anyone looking for a comfortable and great apartment in Jerusalem.
Wir haben die Ferienwohnung zwei Wochen mit vier Personen bewohnt. Die Wohnung hat uns gut gefallen. Es war sauber und ordentlich. Die Küche und das Bad sind relativ klein, was aber für uns kein Problem darstellte. Die Wohnung liegt an einer Straße mit sehr vielen Restaurants was uns sehr gut gefallen hat. Ein Supermarkt war auch ganz in der Nähe. Man kann in 20 min in die Altstadt laufen. Anbindung an die öffentlichen Verkehrsmittel ist auch sehr gut. In der Wohnung selber ist es sehr ruhig, manchmal hat man etwas Straßenlärm. Das hält sich aber sehr in Grenzen. Wir konnten ohne Probleme bei offenem Fenster schlafen. Die Kommunikation mit dem Vermieter war sehr angenehm. Unsere Fragen wurden immer schnell, freundlich und passend beantwortet.
We stayed in Benyamin Vacation Rental for 5 nights. It was excellent. You could walk very easy to the main street to catch a cab, bus, eat at wonderful restaurant or go to grocery store. Benyamin made everything easy for us including sending deposit via PayPal which is very easy. His place has information for your historic stay while in Jerusalem. His beds were extra long and most comfortable. Loved the water pressure in the shower. Excellent. The balcony was lovely and there even is a phone for you to receive incoming calls from your family overseas which is GREAT!!!! Thank you Benyamin for your hospitality. Excellent
This apartment is absolutely wonderful! The location is perfect: just off Emek Refaim and within walking distance to the old city, Mamilla center etc. The house is furnished with great taste and Benyamin was attentive and available for any question or request. Highly recommended!
I want to take this opportunity to let you know that my wife and had a wonderful time in Jerusalem visiting our family. The apartment we rented from you was very nice, that is, well-appointed, pleasant and quiet. For those of us who live in a cold climate (Canada), it was great to have coffee on the balcony in the morning. It is also central to everything we wanted. My complements to you on such a nice place. The best compliment that I can pass on to you is that we are planning to stay there again and, when I have friends or family who wish to rent a place to stay in Jerusalem, I will recommend that they contact you.
