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

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.

Why Paul chose Jerusalem area

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.

Luxurious old city accommodations

  • 5 of 5

A tremendous experience staying at the Rova Arches. A thoroughly modern apartment in the middle of the Jewish Quarter. Walking distance to virtually every antiquity you might want to see, yet away from the hustle and cars of the city outside the walls. Spotless and well appointed with excellent air conditioning, this apartment will serve you well as a base from which to explore Jerusalem.

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

The location was in square and close to many eating places.

Accommodations were comfortable. Didn't use cooking facility except for breakfast and coffee.

Half bath was convenient and bath was adequate.

I would stay here again.

Great rental and responsive service

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at this apartment, and it was another great experience - which we would happily do again. Since our last stay, the owner seems to have focused on more responsive service, and as a result our few requests for special items and assistance were very promptly addressed. Overall a great property, exactly as described in the property listing, and a great experience. If you're thinking of visiting Jerusalem, with a focus on the Old City, why stay in a hotel? For less money you can stay at this apartment, and experience the Old City just like the locals do, and with great comfort and convenience.

Beautiful apartment in excellent Old City location

  • 5 of 5

My family of 5 had a wonderful 4 night stay here. Highlights for us were: 1) excellent location right in the heart of the Jewish quarter with easy access to everything in the Old City, 2) beautiful apartment with great air conditioning, plenty of space of stretch out in, and good supplies for cooking, washing, etc. 3) an excellent host in Stanley who went out of his way at every turn to ensure we had a great visit to Jerusalem- from helping to organize our transportation and tour guides to having fresh flowers, wine, and wonderful fresh bread waiting for us upon arrival. Cannot imagine there is a better option if you want to stay in the Old City and we would also highly recommend using the transportation and guide services recommended by Stanley. Only minor concerns to be aware of is that you are required to go up about two flights of stairs to reach the apartment with no elevator option and there is only one shower.
