Jerusalem is a hugely popular city with foreign visitors from all walks of life and there are hotels to suit every pocket. Boutique hotels are on the rise, many of them in atmospheric old buildings, and as the country gains popularity with independent travellers, more and more high quality budget options have popped up, most notably in the city centre and Old City. The hotels below have been classed into three different pricing categories:
Luxury (over ILS765)
Moderate (ILS385 to ILS765)
Cheap (up to ILS385)
Hotel rates are subject to 18.25% VAT (Value Added Tax) only if guests pay in Israeli currency. Tourists are exempt from taxes if paying in a foreign currency. It is customary to tip hotel staff.
