About The Owner

We are an American Orthodox family living in Jerusalem over twenty years. Our goal in life is to be good. We love the opportunity of helping people visit the Holy City and enjoy life here to the fullest in a kosher and comfortable way.

The Owner purchased this studio in 2010

Why The Owner chose Jerusalem area

We thought that downtown was not utilized enough for vacation rentals. It's an amazing experience living downtown. Shopping for gourmet food in the open-air market, cooking dinner and enjoying it outside on your balcony, watching the life of happy people in the midrechov, davening in the historic traditional shuls of Rand and Broide...and visiting the Holy Western Wall...what a life to offer people!

What makes this studio unique

Downtown is alive with youth, excitement, opportunities...meeting friends and being happy...

And this apartment offers life to the fullest: a huge 12 foot salon, a fun bed upstairs looking over the salon, great kitchen & bathroom, and the neatest built-in seating for four looking over the world below!

I booked this apartment based on the positive reviews from past renters. Eliana is lovely from the first moment you inquire about her KG suites. She is such a welcoming host, and I think that is why the reviews are so positive. To speak the truth is almost like betraying a cherished friend, but truth be told, if this were a hotel I think it would struggle to have one star.

A foul smell greets you when you open the door to this apartment complex. The stairs, and the entry hall are filthy dirty. It amazed me each day to see the trash that people carelessly threw on the floor: q-tips, a rag, plastic wrappings. A cup filled with water, and cigarette butts is perpetually on display just outside Eliana's apartments. There is no elevator, so be prepared to lug your bags up two flights of stairs.

Eliana has taken one apartment, and carved it into several studio lofts. I am sure the work was not professionally done. The walls are dirty, and have been patched many times. The shower curtain is secured by a piece of twine. Only the cheapest materials are used to furnish the place, from the rug to the vinyl table covering, to the mattress which is very uncomfortable. The walls are paper thin. You can hear every detail of the conversation of the people staying next door. Nothing is level; if you put your toothbrush on the sink it falls into the basin. Makeshift is the best word to describe the work done on this place.

If you want to stay in this location, I would suggest City Center Jerusalem. For the same price point you can stay in a clean, professionally designed apartment located directly across the street from Eliana's suites. Regardless, look elsewhere. I am in the midst of a multiyear trip around the world, and this is unequivocally one of the worst places I have stayed in my life.

Very, very hard to beat

  • 5 of 5
This review isn't going to be very original as everything as already been said in the previous comments. The downtown location is excellent and very convenient. The studio is very nice and thanks to clever layout feels much larger than it is. As someone else has said don't be put off by the staircase which shows its age, the studios themselves are spotless. But best of all, Eliana is a wonderful host. From the first email enquiry to your checking out she is most helpful and responsive. In addition, she is a great person to chat with and you can tell she loves this place, Jerusalem and welcoming people from all over. I would highly recommend this apartment to my friends. No wonder the KGL suites only get 5 star reviews.

Owner's Response: Of course it was easy to be nice to these guests, they were simply amazing people. We must attract special people because we are 'off the beaten path" or for some other reason, because I surely rate all of our guests 5 stars!

The Best Place in Jerusalem, really...

  • 5 of 5
If you really want to know Jerusalem, these apartments are perfect. They are small, but have everything that you need. I lived a full month with my girlfriend and it was a wonderful experience. Eliana and Aryeh are beautiful people, always worried about us, anything we needed. The location of the apartments is perfect, five minutes walk to the Jerusalem´s market, and fifteen minutes walk to the Old City. It was the best trip of my life, and one of the things that made it possible was this place. Thanks Eliana, Thank Aryeh, Really Thanks for everything.

A big hug from Chile.

LOVED IT!!

  • 5 of 5
Eliana is a very special lady. She went out of her way to be kind and accommodating. The apartment was clean and very cute. The organization of space is extremely efficient, including plenty of closet space to unpack our suitcases. The apartment is located on King George directly across from tons of stores and shops. There is also a grocery store just steps from the apartment. I have visited Israel many times and I always prepare myself for crumby showers (usually very short supply of hot water), this was NOT true of King George Studios. They have a solar water heater that provided enough hot water for both my husband and myself to shower in the morning, and there is a back up electric heater if needed (it was not needed). We also LOVED the convenience of the wash and dryer, as well as the kitchenette. With out a doubt, we WILL stay at KGS on all of our future visits to Jerusalem.

Best lodging in Jerusalem!

  • 5 of 5
I have been to Israel many times and have stayed in many different places. The last two times I have visited, I have stayed in this apartment. The owners are so friendly that I felt as if we were friends before I even met them face-to-face. I so enjoyed our time of conversation with them and the wealth of information that they have. They are very kind-hearted people that just further enhance the greatness of this apartment.
The location is perfect, the views are equally so. The facilities are just what one would need when traveling. I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking to get a wonderful Jerusalem experience and to do so at the most reasonable of prices. I have referred friends here and will be back again myself. Thank you!
