About Ms Salme Rahamimoff

i am a practicing architect, born in Finland and living in Israel since 1970

Ms Salme Rahamimoff purchased this apartment in 1973

Why Ms Salme Rahamimoff chose Israel

We moved out architectural office away from the property and since it it is on prime tourist attraction area and stayd empty some years we thought to have it renovated and rent it as enjoyment for Israeli visiting tourists.

What makes this apartment unique

-the extraordinary view of the Jerusalem Old City Walls, Mount Zion and the summer concerts in Sultan's Pool just in front of the living room windows and outside patio area.

-in new Teddy Collek garden will be 'music and water' performances in summer evenings free of charge. A great garden to be with children

Guestbook comments from the manager

Hi Salme,

You’ve received a review from Roberto for your accommodation ‘sultan's refuge’:

I would strongly recommend this apartment to anybody else who wishes to visit Jerusalem! We are a family with two daughters of 14 and 17 years old, and the atmosphere the apartment gives is of immediately feeling at home. It has all the necessary furniture and comforts we needed, included a fantastic espresso machine with all the required coffee wafers we needed (and we drink lot of coffee)! Very good wifi connection, TV with few int.l channels, washing machine, dish washing machine and dryer, all perfect. The location is perfect for walking around, lot of light in the house, and a nice little terrace outside for breakfast or dinner. Strongly recommended! Roberto from Italy

Beautiful apartment in a magical part of Jerusalem

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is in Yemin Moshe, the first and oldest neighborhood outside of the Jerusalem Old City Walls ... yet it's a thoroughly modern and comfortable space with all the amenities that a traveler needs. The views of the Old City walls are incredible and, although there are lots of ups and downs, the walks to either the Old City or New City are easily accessible. Salme was a thoughtful host and provided everything we needed, even a couple of extra chairs for an extended family meal. We'd highly recommend this apartment and would stay again.

Sultan's Refuge - A Most Wonderful Experience

  • 5 of 5

We spent two weeks in the Sultan’s Refuge. The apartment is bright, clean, spacious, very well appointed and with all the conveniences. It exceeded our expectations. Nicer than the internet pictures show. Yemin Moshe’s ambiance is charming. The apartment’s location could not be better. The Jaffa Gate, artisans gallery, Mt. Zion, King David Hotel, and Mamilla Pedestrian Mall are all within an easy ten to fifteen minute walk. The neighborhood restaurant, ToUro, has excellent food and service. Step out the front door of the apartment, turn right, walk about thirty yards and you are there. Salme gave us a warm welcome with wine and a lovely fruit basket.

Excellence in Israel

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at the Sultans Retreat located in the Prime location of Yemin Moshe. We have traveled to Jerusalem on several occasions and this is by far the best rental we have found. It was not just because of the property, it was equally a direct reflection on the owner Salme and her husband. From first contact to the final goodbye (until next time), Salme was a generous and kind hostess. We were extremely honored to be invited to her home on New Years Eve. The apartment was immaculately maintained and is a unique design that reflects all one would expect in a 5 star accommodation. The room is equipped with everything you could need. And if you needed something Salme would go out of her way to get it for you. I was spoiled with the Nespresso machine and my morning coffee. The location of the apartment is perfect!!! We enjoyed our morning walks across the street and up the hill where we would enter the Old City through the Zion Gate on our way to the Kotel. The Mamilla Mall is just across the street, German Colony is within walking distance as well as the Mahane Yehuda Market (a good walk). You can see the walls of the Old City from the apartment windows, and there is a nice patio area for sitting outside on warmer days. We cannot wait to return to this beautiful apartment and spend more time in Jerusalem. If you are looking for First Class accommodations with First Class service this is the place to stay.

Thanks again Salme!, and extend our warm regards to your husband. We look forward to seeing you again this summer.

Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Israel and the location of this great apartment help make it a great experience. The apartment has a lovely view of the Old City and a short walk to the Jaffe gate. We spent most of our time in the old city and were able to pop in easily. The apartment itself is very functional and peaceful. Considering how close it is to the old city it is amazingly quiet. Just a great place & a very responsive owner! Thank you!
