"Beautiful building, good location, no frills hotel"
There's a typo in the name of this place. The word hotel is missing an S.
The rooms are tiny and the beds are child size. You can't swing a loofah in the literal water closet. The shower turns the "bathroom" into a wet room. Hot water is optional, but it's the shower that decides. As is handsfree washing.
If you're unlucky enough to stay in one of the back rooms, you're treated to a nice view of the courtyard, which looks like it's been used for fly tipping for the last 20 years.
The breakfast is non-existent. There's bread, butter and a choice of spreads like date, halva and something hummus-y. And if you're there for Passover, bread is replaced with large Jacob's crackers, but you can buy bread from vendors all over the city should you want to avoid adding to the morning's dry mouth.
Also, the building is a beautiful period, colonial townhouse - part of the allure for booking there, however there is no lift and no one around to help carry luggage.
That said, its location can't be beaten. It's a five minute walk to Jaffa Gate of the old city and the tram passes right outside so great for getting to bus stations, etc.
There's also loads of shops, bureau de changes, ATMs, bars, cafes and restaurants on the doorstep. These places are mainly closed on the Shabbat, but places are open in the old city and a restaurant called Barood opposite is also open. And the bars open at night.
