The space

Welcome to an oasis in the center of Jerusalem.
Experience the magic from within and fall in love with its beauty.
You will find yourself in the hidden passageways of the historical and picturesque
neighborhood of Nahlaot.

The apartment is a combination of modern comforts and old world charm.
You can relax on the wooden terrace with a cup of tea, where you can glance at the authentic architecture of the area. Walk inside and you will step onto an original tiled floor with all of the modern amenities:
A modern kitchen equipped with:

and handmade original plates and mugs designed and crafted by Daniela

You will also find a plasma screen TV with cable,
a powerful and invigorating showerhead,
a hand made ceramic sink designed and crafted by Daniela,

among many other comforts.

Discover Nahlaot; the quaint corner cafes, the funky salons with eclectic music, dozens of synagogues, from Carlebach to Middle Eastern to European styles.
A shopping cart awaits you so you can indulge in the culinary delights of the famous Mahane Yehuda Market and all of this is only a 5 minute walk!

Within 10 minutes you will find yourself at the new light rail with most of Jerusalem’s attractions only a train ride away- the Old City, Mount Herzl, Yad Vashem to name a few.

Experience the culture and the tranquility of the city, feel the spirit, bask in the old world and revel in the modernity of it all.

Daniela and her husband Doron are excited to host you on your next vacation here in Israel so come and enjoy the local tastes, the art, the nightlife, the tranquility, the old and the new.

Interaction with guests

We are constantly alert for questions and requests 24 hours a day, seven days a week
Also our guests are invited to visit my pottery workshop, located in front of the old town a few meters from Mishkenot Sha'ananim .. For pottery wheel lessons you must book in advance:)

Other things to note

Our apartment is located only 20 meters from the intersection of Even Saphir / Hamadregot corner, this corner is ideal for getting off with the taxi. Another interesting and very central corner, but at 70 meters is the corner Even Saphir/Av Betzalel

We had a lovely stay at Daniela's place. It is a small studio, nicely decorated and perfectly located in quiet pastoral alley, a walking distance from the city centre, the old city and just a few minutes from the market. Nice strong water stream - just remember to turn the boiler on 15-20 minutes before you take a shower, and the bed was extremely comfortable. Thanks Daniela!

Daniela & Doron were very helpful & amazingly responsive with communication. The apartment is as pictured although in a little older condition than the pictures suggest, (Not exactly 5 stars worth). The bathroom in particular wasn't the best, we had an door the grew as the days went by? Despite this we enjoyed our stay as the apartment is in a quite area just a short walk away from many small bars & restaurants. The Machane Yehuda Market is well worth a visit & close by. The old city is bit more of a hike or the tram stops just outside the Market & goes directly past the old city. We did have a bad experience & want to mention it for other travellers to be aware of. This has nothing to do with Daniela & Doron... We booked a tour through "Jerusalem Tours" on Yafo street not far from the old city. We were 2 people & paid $115 USD extra so we could go on a tour of Masada & En Gedi, as the minimum number was 3 persons. When we were picked up for the tour we were on a large tourist busy with 38 other people! These people were all doing part of the same tour except En Gedi. After Masada the other people were dropped off at the Dead Sea & we were driven the 7kms to the En Gedi entrance, (just over 5 minutes by bus!) After our time at En Gedi the bus came back with the other 38 people on board & we went back to Jerusalem. I ended up in a large argument with the owner Ido, who was basically very unsympathetic. Hardly the private tour we thought we ere getting. My advise STAY CLEAR of JERUSALEM TOURS".

Lovely place!!! The location is fantastic. It is just 5 min away from machane jeuda market and about a 20 min walk to the Jaffa gate. It's old and artsy. It is a very interesting part of the city. The communication and check-in were perfect. The studio is very comfortable too. It is well (URL HIDDEN) has everything one needs.
