Overview

Israel Apartment Rental Photos and Description

In the heart of the Old City: 3 bedrooms, 1.5 bathrooms, sleeps 6

If you're looking for a one-of-a-kind Jerusalem experience, you've come to the right place!

The Rova Arches suite is located in the heart of Jerusalem's Old City — a UNESCO world heritage site. Overlooking the recently rebuilt Hurva synagogue, and just steps from the Western Wall, the Old City market, the luxury Mamilla shopping promenade, and countless archeological sites and historic synagogues, you will find yourself perfectly situated to take advantage of everything Jerusalem has to offer.

This breathtaking architectural gem was built more than five hundred years ago during the Mamluk period. With magnificent domed ceilings, and walls that are literally meters thick, the Rova Arches suite will provide a true historic Jerusalem experience unlike any other.

The three-bedroom apartment is newly renovated to the highest standard and outfitted with every modern amenity and convenience.

Why Aurélie chose Israel

It was love at first sight! As soon as we saw the spectacular ancient domes, we knew this was an apartment like no other.

What makes this apartment unique

Eco living:

When you stay at our vacation suite, there's no need to worry about your carbon footprint. The green construction began five hundred years ago — the one-to-two-meter-thick walls maintain temperature better than any modern technology! We did our best to follow that example when we renovated the bedrooms, bathrooms, and kitchen.

Here is a list of the suite's Eco credentials:

•Low-energy air conditioning throughout the apartment. (DC Inverter technology.)

•LED lighting.

•Underfloor heating. Rather than blast heat from a small vent near the ceiling, underfloor heating systems allow the heat to rise from the bottom up, without ever reaching a high temperature.

•Double-glazed insulated windows.

•Natural-gas water heating.

•Energy-efficient appliances.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed in Rova Arches in early July during a 2 week trip to Israel. The property and particularly, the location, cannot be beat!

LOCATION: Within 2 minutes you can walk to the Kotel, the Arab Shuk, the Tower of David, etc. There is a cafe just next to the property, on the Hurva Synagogue square, where you can people watch for hours. We found it very easy to walk to the Jaffa Gate (maybe 3 minutes) when we had plans outside of the old city. Mamilla Mall is also a 3 minute walk if you feel the need. There are numerous places to shop, eat (both a quick shawarma or falafel, or a sit down dinner) within a 5 minute walk.

PROPERTY: We were 2 couples, a 69 year old, and a 13 year old boy. There was plenty of room as there is an open floor plan with plenty of space to stretch out. The apartment is spacious, beautifully appointed, clean, and has anything you might need to make the stay enjoyable.

SERVICE: Aurelie, the manager, could not have been nicer and more accommodating. Bagels, juice and fresh fruit awaited us, which was really a very nice touch after hours of traveling. There were fresh flowers on the table. There was a box of teas and espresso available throughout the stay.

We travelled to several locations on this visit, and I have been to Israel many times. I will say, without reservation, that this is the nicest, most welcoming apartment we have ever stayed in. I would (and will) recommend this to all of my friends, and will certainly stay there again.

Wonderful place to stay in the Jewish Qtr. Stanley greeted us and arranged all of our transport to the flat. We arrived to a beautiful apt., crystal clean with everything (and more than we could ask.) Espresso, kitchen basics usually lacking in a VRBO so we could cook right away. We even had milk, bread and fruit waiting for us!!! The local cell phone was tremendously helpful and we were able to do much needed laundry right away. The location was almost the best thing! ATM, bakery, cafes and then the Western Wall only a 5 min. walk away. The square in front of the flat was host a an annual music festival the nights we were there which made us feel all the more part of the local community. We felt like were part of the real city - not the tourist community! Thanks so very much for a lovely time in the Old City - we'll be back and send our friends!

Beautiful apartment centrally located in old city. Adi (caretaker) is so sweet. After a long flight they even had food ready for us in the apt. Good cleaning crew when needed. We stayed there for two weeks and were sad to leave. Apartment had absolutely everything one would need for their stay.

Excellent!

  • 5 of 5

We were 3 academic researchers studying in local museums. The location is perfectly centered in the heart of the Old City, just a few minutes walk to all of the important sites. The neighborhood is very quiet and very safe. Even though we visited during some East Jerusalem unrest, the biggest problem we faced was the aggressive peddlers in the nearby markets. The apartment is very comfortable and very well appointed with many extras we have not found in other rentals. We cooked several meals in the very well equipped kitchen. Adi, our agent, was extremely helpful and friendly at every step along the way. We have rented many apartments throughout Europe during our research trips, and this is one of the very best. There is no better place to stay in Jerusalem.
