In general, accommodations prices in Jerusalem are fairly high. With over 3.6 million tourists arriving in Israel, most of whom visit Jerusalem, you can expect that hotel rooms fill up quickly – especially in summer. Accommodations range from large downtown hostels and high-rise, resort-like hotels with impressive pools to stylish boutique options in elegant, historic buildings and B&Bs set in residential neighbourhoods. Booking in advance is recommended.

Apartment Rentals

Airbnb and the like, including several apartment booking services like Windows of Jerusalem ( and Isralet (, are becoming more and more popular for travellers to the city. These services generally make long-term stays more affordable than hotel accommodations. The upscale neighbourhoods south of downtown tend to have nicer and larger rentals than those available downtown.
