The supply of forks ran out and was replaced with spoons.
But as the spoons are increasingly being handed out it's starting to occur to some people that these aren't really spoons.
They're forks disguised as spoons.
Live forever or die trying.

We recently got back from a 5 night stay with kids in 2 rooms. Rooms are tiny even for European standards. They gave us superior rooms and if there is a lower category than that I probably would not fit in! The wall between the room and bathroom is all glass with the bottom 2/3rds being darkened. There is no lock on the glass door. If you leave the bathroom light on for shabbos it will be way to light in the room so we put the night table lamp in the bathroom and kept the light off. Rain Shower is amazing with a lot of pressure.  They have a really nice rooftop sitting area (not a bar). Breakfast was OK but Iíve had better in Israel.  Hashgacha is Rabbinut (not mehadrin) but there is a mashgiach who put a sign and warned us that a few cakes were not chalav yisroel. They have coffee, tea &  juice available all day in a room off reception area. Location cannot be better!!! Parking is 50 shekel per day.

All in all itís a very good value in the best location if using the "Go Fast" option but itís definitely not for you if you are looking for a luxury hotel experience like the WAJ, Citidel or even the Plaza!!

Has anyone been able to book a revenue stay at the TRYP Jerusalem with Visa Checkout? I don't see it a payment option.

Hope this is the right place for a review of our 1 night stay at the hotel, didn't feel that it qualified as a TR just a quick getaway.

DW and I decided to take a short vacation for a day and we thought the central location of the hotel would be perfect. Booked 3k+$65 the executive room. We arrived at 4:45pm (check in from 3pm) we noticed the majority of the guests were Israeli not too many tourist maybe because of the time of the year. Check in took a few minutes as there was a line, when it was our turn I asked if I could get an upgrade to the Bat Sheva Suite, I explained that I wrote an email but did not receive a response. The receptionist seemed very nice and spent about 3 minutes clicking away, eventually she said there is one room which is not occupied but for some reason not open for occupancy, she said we could come later and possibly switch given the short nature of our stay we decided to skip that option. about 5pm we go to the room it was clean elegant and had a complimentary bottle of water + some choclates, it was definitely on the small side despite being the biggest room except the suite (according to website 20sqm). There was some issue with bolting the door so we called the desk to fix it, took quite a while for them to come.
The room was on a high floor (8/9) and we had a terrific view from the window (no balcony). As mentioned by @BrooklynCPA the bathroom does not allow for much privacy and the lighting situation is not good for shabbos, the shower was terrific with amazing pressure plus the amenities were very good dead sea products. One thing which we did is to go onto the roof to see the 'historic Jerusalem' view which truly is amazing better than anything I have seen at other hotels, you can see the old city and other directions a real panoramic view of the city, truthfully I would recommend simply going there even if you are not a guest, take the elevator to the 9th floor and you have a fantastic view. The TV is the ususall Israeli garbage with limited options, would recommend bringing your own stuff if you want to watch, you can always connect with an HDMI cable.
In the morning we went to breakfast, the first thing I did was ask to speak to mashgiach, the Arab waiter said he will check, I said is he around and he replied that he was supposed to be but he has a tendency of 'disappearing' (not a good sign IMO), he wasn't there. I spoke with the chef and clarified where the products were from (he was Jewish but did not seem frum). In terms of whether you should eat there ask your LOR I just present to you my experience.
The food was terrific with a great selection of cheeses and cooked items (haloumi skewers)no complaints here, a nice selection of breads etc.
An anecdote - at breakfast if you look at the wall outside there is a beautiful but rather risque quote from sefer shmuel the story of Bat Sheva I guess they took the name seriously...also alluding to the hotels view (in that Dovid Hamelech saw Bat Sheva bathing from his view), make what you want of that...
I am posting a link to my pictures so you can get a sense of what it looks like as well as some of the views (I was not successful in inserting the pictures into the review)
