Budget and high-end hotels are plentiful in the Old City, with little of quality in between. It's an atmospheric place to stay, but challenging if you intend to take advantage of downtown's nightlife. If you arrive in Jerusalem by taxi or sherut (shared taxi), you'll need to alight at one of the city gates and walk to your hotel. (If you have your own car, you'll need to park outside the Old City and walk in.) Note that the call to prayer can be a problem for light sleepers in the Muslim Quarter.
