How to Find the Best Jerusalem Hotels with Venere

Jerusalem is one of the oldest and most holy places in the world, responsible for spawning three major Abrahamic religions which still thrive today. The city is situated in Israel among the Judean Mountains between the Mediterranean and the Dead Sea, and is said to have been conquered by King David from the Jebusites, and its first temple established by his son, King Solomon. Jerusalem is one of the most fascinating cities around, and traces of its 3000 year history can be found throughout the city hidden among its modern shopping streets, restaurants, and nightlife. Finding your ideal hotel in Jerusalem can be difficult, especially when there are thousands of hotels to choose from, but with Venere, booking the hotel perfect for your expectations is made easy with the help of user submitted hotel reviews, hotel room photo galleries, and our handy Google maps applet.
