Ariel was the perfect host! He provided us with 2 keys upon arrival, and the apartment was in perfect condition. The description of the apartment was accurate - it was clean, spacious, well furnished, quiet, and it met all of our needs. The neighborhood was in a perfect location, and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay!
We just came back from a wonderful 3 month stay in Ariel's apartment. The location was excellent as it is central to all the best of Jerusalem--we walked everywhere, but you could also take buses which is very nearby. The apartment is a great size for two people and had everything we needed for our stay. We especially loved hanging out on the balcony overlooking the beautiful rose garden. Ariel and his mom, Riva, (she lives upstairs), were very accommodating and responsive to anything we needed--including tips for restaurants.. We hope to stay here again when we return to Israel.
The apartment is at a great location, within walking distance to the best parts of Jerusalem, great coffee shops, the market. Very close shopping busses etc. It is very spacious for a one bedroom and nicely made. Ariel and his mother are super nice and accommodating. Note that the ad says you pay for utilities separately - for me it was a few hundred Shekels. During my stay there was some construction at an adjacent house which was often noisy but it looks like they're almost done.
Our time in Jerusalem was amazing; although, without our lovely accommodations with Aerial, our stay would not have been quite as amazing. The apartment is nicely furnished and well stocked with kitchen ware and linens. Nice size, extra comfortable bed with air conditioning in the bedroom for those warm Jerusalem nights. Not to mention the amazing widow shades throughout the house which create privacy & quietness. The apartment is located in a wonderful area of Jerusalem, very secure neighborhood (beside the President's residence) and within walking distance of the Old City & city central. As well, there is a bus stop just around the corner (less than a block). Aerial's mother lives on the top floor of the three apartment dwelling, who is very kind and gracious to help answer any questions. We can't say enough about this rental and the host. Aerial is so easy to communicate with and is very prompt to assist with any needs.
We had Two lovely months in Ariels apartment and it is as good as all the reviews that the other guests have left, super safe area, spacious, well stocked with all that one needs, Shops nearby,buses etc, Ariels parents, Eli and Riva where wonderful and so helpful, we enjoyed their company very much. Only one complaint ---we should have booked for three months not two, Big mistake. We will definitely book again for a future trip.Thank you Ariel, Eli and Riva for renting your lovely apartment to us we loved it. Best wishes from Graham and Helen.
