This small but spacious, two-level, beautifully designed loft is located right in the middle of Mahane Yehuda Market, one of the most vibrant neighborhoods in Jerusalem. You can enjoy the sights and sounds of the market from the vantage of the balcony, or head outside, where street vendors and shops, excellent restaurants, and bars are just steps away. The Mahane Yehuda light rail station is right around the corner, providing easy access to the Old City and Central Station.
The apartment is equipped with a full-sized bed upstairs and a sofa bed downstairs, a table, and a desk; a washing machine, a gas stove and oven, an air-conditioning/heating unit, and wifi; linens and towels, dishes and cooking utensils.
The building, like much of the neighborhood, was built in the 1890s by emigrants from Bukhara, in today's Uzbekistan. While it has been entirely redesigned by a local architect, it still retains many original details, including the original tile floor.
The market can be very noisy, even at night, so if you prefer a quiet place, this is not the flat for you. It is, however, a wonderful place for anyone who wants to be in the middle of the action and to enjoy the real Jerusalem, off the beaten path.
