About Yishai & Rivka Yuval

Rivka and I were both born in Israel, live in the old city of Jerusalem since 1968 and love it. We have 6 children and 8 grand-children. Rivka was a high-school teacher and I worked in high-tech industry.

We enjoy being retired, spending time of what we like to do; travelling either in the country or overseas and experiencing new places, styles and cultures, meeting people and learn about their life.

Yishai & Rivka Yuval purchased this apartment in 1980

Why Yishai & Rivka Yuval chose Israel

Unique, Newly renovated 1-bedroom apartment, overlooking Temple Mount (Dome of The Rock) with magnificant view of the old city of Jerusalem.

2 queen beds that can be separated plus double bed pull-out sofa.

Can accommodate up to 4 persons.

Comfortable, illuminated, very quiet and fully equipped to make you stay as enjoyable and comfortable as possible while you're away of home.

What makes this apartment unique

The great bonus of our place is its location. Now need to rent a car, look for parking or wait for public transportation. Just go our the building and you're in the midst of everything. And at the end of the day just step in and enjoy the comfort and beauty of the place.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This apartment was probably the best part of our Jerusalem vacation. Located in the Jewish Quarter, in heart of the Old City, this small but cozy and immaculate apartment offered unique views of the Old City: you can see the holiest places for Christianity, Judaism, and Islam all at once from the windows! We stayed here with a family of four (with 2 teenage sons). Four our family, the place was small, but never felt cramped, thanks to the efficient layout. The place is within walking distance of restaurants, shops, ATM. Hurva Square is around the corner. Nearest public parking was a 10 min. walk nearby at Zion Gate, but taxis can come closer to this place. The place has a queen-size bed, and folding couch that sleeps two more, and a small dining room table that folds to accommodate up to 5 people easily. It has a well-equipped kitchen that can be used by kosher or non-kosher guests. The place is quiet and comfortable. It really felt like home away from home, as we stayed here for 2 weeks. Excellent value for money. The best part is the warm, hospitable and helpful landlord, who lives right above the apartment. We would recommend this without a doubt. We hope to go back there some day!

Unforgetable stay!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was a trip of a lifetime for us! A beautiful little apartment in the heart of the Jewish Quarter of Old City Jerusalem. We were so warmly welcomed....even fresh baked treats awaited us!

The apartment is very well appointed with all you would need for a comfortable stay. Location is second to none with sights, restaurants, markets, shopping just minutes from your front door. Our hosts were so gracious...even had a taxi arranged for us to and from the airport.

Thank you Yishai and Rivka for all you have done for us. We will always remember.

Lovely apartment with great view of Jerusalem

  • 5 of 5

This is a great little apartment in the Jewish Quarter of Old Jerusalem. My husband and I stayed about 12 days and had a lovely time. The apartment was very clean and organized, just like the pictures. It was wonderful staying in Old Jerusalem with so much history all the Holy Sites within walking distance. It was truly a special holiday for us. Also lovely restaurants and shops within walking distance. The owner Yishai Yuval was so friendly and helpful. He helped us arrange taxi to meet us at the airport upon our arrival. He also arranged our taxi for when we left. Thank you Yishai for your attentiveness to our needs and your lovely accommodations. We hope to visit Jerusalem again in the future and would love to rent your apartment again. Kind Regards, Alicia and Paul B.

The most wonderfull place on earth

  • 5 of 5

How shall we start?

The apartment: It is located in the heart of Yerushalaim(Jerusalem), it's very beautyfull, very clean, you have everything you need and it is decorated with nice taste.

Zone: The location of the apartment is very good. You can go on foot to visite many places in the old city. Shops and everything you may need is in range of just a few minutes of walk. It is located in the Jewish Quater, so you may go on a walk even at night because there aren't any safety problems.

Hosts: Yishai and Rivka are very special people. They are friendly, thrust-worthy and ready to help ou whenever they can.

In one word: Everything was PERFECT!

There wasn't any motiv to be dissatisfied!

So everytime we'll go again to Yerushalaim, we already found our place to stay without any hesitation.

We recomand to everybody, who wants to have a unforgetable holiday in Israel... You won't regret it!

Owner's Response: Dear Soanca family, Hosting visitors in one's home is a unique experience by meeting all types of people, cultures, faiths. Your visit was above and over such a 'unique experience' - it was unforgettable! your love and respect to the place, the people and to us was extraordinary from the very first moment we met you on the street, saying 'Shlom' with such a smile and open hearts. We feel like we miss words to express our love and gratitude. You should see Rivka face when reading your review - a huge smile! God bless you and we're looking forward to see each and everyone of you again here - either together or individually. Rivka & Yishai

Great stay in Jerusalem

  • 5 of 5

This was a fantastic condo in the old city of Jerusalem. Yishai was fantastic. He arranged transportation to the airport for us, had some food available for us and told us about the sites. We felt welcome and right at home. We hope to return very very soon!

Parking of private cars isn't permitted inside the old city. Best commuting is by taxi up to the main parking lot of the Jewish quarter. Ask us for a taxi driver from the airport. Call us to pick you up or follow the directions below (We can send you a map as well). Take Jewish Qtr. street for about 500 m. and turn right in Plugat Hakotel st. It's windy street leading to small square. Take the 4 steps up. Straight ahead, left to the building's arched entrance, there is an exterior staircase. Climb up 1 floor. The door in front is ours.
