Jason handles this property for all the members of his family, each of whom feels a special connection to this unique property and to Jerusalem.
Jason purchased this house in 1993
This magnificent and historic house was the dream property of my mother, found by my sister, renovated by my brother, and decorated with help by my mother's daughters-in-love and grandkids. It's been a labor of love.
The listing description accurately described this beautiful lodging of elegance, ancient halls, well appointed with tasteful Israeli art and magnanimous views.
We have been to Jerusalem many times but this was the best for location, convenience and view of the Old City. Property was very clean and well maintained, and responses for help or a new coffee maker were immediate.
We brought a team of International Harpists and are expecting to rent again, next year. Would highly recommend to any group of 12.
The only thing to remember is that Israeli's call self contained units, a house, and this felt and performed like a house, but technically you are part of a larger unit. Once you are inside, you would never imagine it is not a whole house, and extremely private.
This home was a perfect rental for our group of 12 women (which is the max I would recommend even though there are more pull out beds. It would get crowded quickly). Questions about internet and heat were answered quickly. It happened to be cold and rainy while we were in Jerusalem and the cistern sleeping area was more difficult to heat, but the rest of the home stayed quite warm. Once we found out about the heating option for downstairs it was much better. The location is great for the Old City and markets close by. Beautiful view when the sun rises. Overall it is a quiet neighborhood.
This is a renovated stone structure apartment building which worked out perfect for our family of 7 to gather each morning for breakfast and venture out to old city for sight seeing each day. We stayed here for 6 nights and enjoyed being together for meals and family time together. The contacts were all courteous and helpful in our first trip to Israel. This is a wonderful base of operations to venture into the old city about 20 minute walk. We hired a walking guide who met us at the door and spent 2 days walking us all over old city of Jerusalem. We also hired driving guide who pick us up at door and took us all to Bethlehem, Dead Sea, Jericho, Jordan river, Masada, and Qumran. We spent each night dinning at nearby train station restaurants or dinning in large beautiful dinning room. Highly recommend this house to large family or close friends in a group. This is an old renovated stone building so do not expect a 5 star hotel in New York. I do believe it is perfect for a group to spend time together in the mornings and evenings.
In addition to all the wonderful and true things we had read by guests at the Sultan's Palace, allow me to add the following: Recently, the municipality of Jerusalem undertook to completely re-vision the old train station just 2 blocks away from the Sultan's Palace. The result is an amazing cultural confluence of Jerusalem's diverse population wherein people can sit, drink, eat, ride bikes, shop and breathe in what is indescribably unique about Yerushalayim. Moreover, one can rent bicycles there and follow a 10k path all the way to the mall (Malcha) where the food court has two sides, one for meat and the other for milk.
The Sultan's Palace allows you to hear the Muslim call to prayer, the Church bells, and the Shabbat siren. We stayed in American luxury with a view of the Old City from the dining room. It was picture perfect!

Perfect Base for Your Lifetime Dream Trip to Israel
My wife and I stayed at "Sultan's Palace" for 10 days last month - I brought her there because I had stayed with friends on an earlier trip almost 3 years ago. Israel - and Jerusalem in particular - is an awe-inspiring experience. And there can be no better "base" for that experience than this classic, spacious stone residence where you wake up every morning looking out at Old Jerusalem. The walls of the Old City, and the Jaffa Gate in particular, are an easy - and very safe and comfortable - walk from Sultan's Palace. The home is very comfortably furnished, breathtakingly spacious with high ceilings and thick, solid stone walls, modern kitchen and bathroom conveniences, great wi-fi internet and everything a large family or group of good friends could possibly want. It's a 5 minute walk from the former Jerusalem train station which has been "re-purposed" as a restaurant, arts and entertainment center, and the start of a 3+ mile walking/bike path through interesting suburban Jerusalem neighborhoods. Several of Jerusalem's finest hotels are minutes away, and even the famous Ben Yehudah Street - and the daytime and evening activities and shopping it offers - is an easy (and safe) walking distance.
The rental procedure and management is very professional, with great cleaning and, if necessary, maintenance (we didn't need it on either trip - but the phone contacts were there). Check-in/out was a breeze and everything was exactly as advertised - or better!! Great air conditioning masked even the hottest July Jerusalem days, and easy parking and access made excursions outside of Jerusalem very convenient. "Sultan's Palace" was the ideal base not only to see Jerusalem, but to tour all of Israel (and did we ever!!).

Four couples and five singles spent two weeks together at Sultan's Palace and had a wonderful adventure. We were experienced Israel travelers and found the place convenient with the best view imaginable. We ate many of our main meals away but cooked a few times and were able to work with the Kosher kitchen without effort. Shopping was convenient and the home was roomy enough for enjoyable visiting, reading, playing cards and simply adults living together.
If we stay again, we will make an early effort to get an Extended Bus Pass from Central Bus Station which will give flexibility and relieve the pressure of being certain you are on the correct line. We learned a lot about public transportation and dealing with taxis.
Rated: a super fun time!! And, all the friends are still speaking to each other.
Inside the 'Green Line.' Between Mount Zion Hotel and Dan Boutique Hotel. Confluence of best neighborhoods, Emek Refai, Baca, Abu Tor, Yamin Moshe, German Colony. Great Jerusalem neighborhood, model of Jewish & Arab coexistence. Safe and fun. Full of cafes, restaurants, clubs, supermarkets, artist galleries, parks. Super convenient. Walk to Old City, Menachem Begin Center, Cinamatque.
