Kotel around 15min walk thru the mall & arab Shuk (Only suggested when soldiers are present like friday night on the way home)

Hopefully they can make it a 5 star experience. Alas that would probably require them to hire non-Israelis/non-Arabs.

Lots of small things, it's just not 5 star service, though there probably never will be 5 star service in Israel.

I wasn't overly impressed with the staff in 2015, but it's worse now.
