Does anyone have any recommendations for a budget friendly hotel, preferably near the kosher stores? Yes, I read the thread, but I'm not looking to use points ion this trip.
Hotel Stefanie is on the main street in the Jewish area (Taborstrasse) and kosher breakfasts are available. 1-2 min walk to the few kosher restaurants and groceries and shuls. Highly ranked on TripAdvisor

Hogtel Stefanie is a 2 minute walk to the bakery, shul, kosher market, pizza place and most of the other restaurants.  There is also a Hotel Mercure that looks nice that is in the Jewish area.  Alef Alef is in the central part of the city next to the Main Synagogue, about 15-20 minute walk to the Jewish area I describe.

Exactly. It's around 15 min from the Bristol to Alef Alef, and that is another 15 min to the main Jewish scene.
Around 30 in total.
