We had a very good stay Die Wohnung liegt sehr schön und ist perfekt ausgestattet. Jetzt im Winter war vor allem die Heizung wichtig. Guter Ausgsngspunkt für Stadterkundungen. Wir würden immer wiederkommen.

Another beautiful stay with Colony Suites We stayed at The Colony apartment in July, and as usual, Colony Suites delivers. The apartment was clean and prepared when we arrived. Even the beds were set up according to our specifications. The property is in the most desirable location: easy access for taxi or sherut, close to the Rachel Imenu No. 18 bus stop from city center, and all kinds of kosher restaurants, grocery store, bakeries, and specialty shops along Emek Refaiim, only a five-minute walk from the apartment. If you want to walk to the Kotel on Shabbat, it is less than a thirty-minute walk. The apartment manager Linda went above and beyond the call of duty to help us set up a pickup time with Nesher taxi service on our departure. It also is within walking distance to Ulpan Or if you want to brush up on your Hebrew during your stay. The Colony apartment is a great value if you need a home base in Jerusalem on a quiet street. We don't even look anywhere else but Colony Suites apartments for our annual trip.

The German Colony 
 A great location to stay, lots of cafes and restaurants. The place was clean and comfortable and exactly as advertised. We easily could walk to the Old City in about 30min and did 4-5 times during our time there.

The Best of Several Worlds 
 An apartment equipped with virtually everything one could need for a short stay in Jerusalem. Located on a quiet street, yet close enough to Emek Refaim to be excellently situated for those wanting to be in the heart of the German Colony. The apartment was comfortable, clean, very well-maintained, and exactly as advertised. We even had nice, friendly neighbors! Linda was an absolute pleasure to deal with, whether by email or in person: gracious, totally professional, responsive, and even proactive! We got a "heads-up" email (complete with links) every time there was a special event of interest in Jerusalem that might affect traffic patterns in and around the neighborhood. We would certainly recommend this apartment to friends, and have, in fact, already done so.

EXECELLENT RENTAL EXPERIENCE The apartment was in excellent condition and very fully equipped. Location was terrific-- close proximity to Emek Rephaim, with parking generally available. Management was very quick in response to any requests
Room Tip: just decide if the second bedroom is worth the extra cost

Great base for exploring Jerusalem We stayed in The Colony for 5 days in November and had a great time. The apartment is spacious and very well maintained. It is very close to Emek Refaim which is a lively area which has lots of restaurants and shops. It's about a half hour walk to the Old City but a quick taxi ride away. The apartment was very reasonably priced compared to the very expensive hotels in Jerusalem and you have the added bonus of being able to be completely self sufficient. Linda is also a pleasure to deal with and always responded very quickly to requests or questions. Would definitely recommend staying there.

Comfortable apartment in great location We had a 2-bedroom apartment in the German Colony. It was in a great location, just a few blocks off the main street, so lots of shops and restaurants in easy walking distance. We had rented a car and it was easy to find free parking close by. The apartment rooms were clean and of good size and we took advantage of the kitchen and washing machine. The site manager, Linda, was very helpful. She came over to help us when we had a problem figuring out the safe and made calls on our behalf to secure us a taxi at a reasonable price to take us to Tel Aviv at the end of our stay.

German Colony apt This is the second time I have rented an apartment from Colony Suites. Each time the service, responsiveness, cleanliness and accomodations were great. I will continue to use them whenever I can. The apartment was walking distance from everything that one would need, supermarket, coffee, restaurants etc.

Clean and convenient! Owners were kind and extremely responsive. The 2 bedoom apartment on Yehoash was clean and fully stocked with lots of dishes , cooking utensils and a washing machine. Location was amazing!!! There was one sofa - we wished there were a few more comfortable chairs, and it would have been nice to have a desk. In hindsight, the owners probably would have brought them, if we had requested them. The neighbors were very friendly but noisy at night.

We are always happy to hear from our guests. Colony Suites specializes in hosting international and local guests and is the longest serving in the area. Extra chairs are available for guests in our storeroom and are brought up upon request, unfortunately other than the kitchen table there is no room for a desk in this apartment. Our apartments are located in residential buildings and to date we haven't had any problems. I hope this was a one off and next time it will be dealt with on the spot.

Convenient, clean, efficient 
Have stayed at another of ColonySuites properties on two previous occasions, and this apartment lived up to expectation. It was convenient, very clean, check in and check out very efficient, the abundance of towels and all other necessities as well as a fully fitted kosher kitchen makes for the stay a 'home from home'. The added bonus of a safe in the room as well as a landline and wireless broadband make Colony suites perfect for a staying in touch whilst away without having to shlep around town looking for a cafe with wireless. All Good
Great stay

Great Location We were concerned at first that a fully furnished apartment in one of Jerusalem's trendiest Cafe and restaurant neighborhoods would be noisy. We were wrong. The Colony is on Emek Refayim in the heart of the German Colony, but set back from the hub-bub of the street and is a peaceful and green oasis. Lynda who manages the property is excellent and keeps the property in tip-top shape and responded immediately to all our needs. She was a great source of advice on travel and many other matters not related to the property. 
The 2 bedroom apartment is large and generously appointed with dishes, glasses and cooking pots and pans. The only thing you need to bring is your toothbrush. 
It is great value for the money. I would not hesitate to stay at the Colony again the next time my plans call for an extended stay in Jerusalem.
The one thing they could do to improves what is close to perfection is to have a sign on the gate leading to the property indicating that building 51 Gimmel is the Colony. There are four building on Emek Refayim numbered 51 (51 aleph, 51 Bet, 51 Gimmel and 51 Daled)
It helps guests find you and cab drivers locate the building. On the other hand, being hidden away in the German Colony was a great rest from the busy lives we normally lead.

Perfect Location We spent a week in a two-bedroom apartment and enjoyed our stay very much. It is a wonderful neighbourhood in walking distance to the Old City. Linda was a very helpful host and the rooms were perfectly clean and provided everything you need. We would definitely go there again.

Nice apartment in a great location We enjoyed our stay in Colony #5. The owner is very helpful and everything was as advertised. You might bring slippers as the tile floors are all tile. The water heater is solar (common in Israel) but we never had it run out of hot water.
It is about a half-hour walk to the Old City or around 28 shekels by cab. The neighborhood (Emek Rafaim) is young and trendy and has lots of shops, cafes, and restaurants, and a grocery store. Check your travel schedule and prepare for Shabbat. (Friday sunset to Saturday sunset.) Everything is closed, so stock up.
