Is this hotel dangerous?

Stay away, unless you really like sheikh-jarrah. Convenient transfers to Ramallah, Bethlehem, and Nablus. Sometimes these transfers may be made by courteous drivers, with guns, with you travelling in luxury in the trunk of the car.

I'd stay in madjal shams, it's a druze town, and though there are some pro-syrian elements there, i understand where they're coming from (if you had to tick off either the Israelis or Bashar Assad, what would you do?) and it's quite nice. Kosher food is a problem, though, you really need a car to get around...

Sheikh Jarrah is also a 2 minute walk from Maalot Dafna, is where they say R. Shimon's kever is, and is only a few minutes from the old city.
Shchem is easily over an hour away, and that's without traffic.

Let's not make it out to be so bad.

You're joking, right?
First of all, R' Shimon's kever is not in ma'alot dafna, it's in Shimon Hatzadik (which is appropriate), and second of all, a lot of places you very much don't want to be in are a few minutes from the old city. I hear silwan is quite nice.

I had a comma before mentioning the kevver  b/c it's in Sheikh Jarrah, not in Maalot Dafna.
But I can understand the concern to be staying there.
