Parking at the Hotel
The Mount of Olives Hotel does not currently offer a private parking facility. However, hotel guests usually park on the street just opposite the hotel's main entrance. It is a well lit area and the night watchman keeps faithful guard on it.
It should be noted though that Jerusalem, in general, is just like any other major city in the world. Theft does occasionally occur especially to car radios and conspicuous personal belongings. We strongly recommend NOT to leave anything of value in the car at any time while in the city.
We live in one of the most beautiful cities in the world. One small negative incident can tarnish a visitors entire trip.
