Our stay in Balfour this January was great. Apartment was really nice and well stocked with everything we need. Great location as well. ROD always comes through. Nadav the manager was so responsive throughout. Akiva from ROD is such a pleasure to work with. I can't count how may times I've rented from ROD- they are always great.

Beautiful Apartment and Convenient Location
We rented the Balfour apartment for almost 2 weeks and it was perfect. It was spotless, modern and everything was in working order. There were stores to buy groceries within walking distance as well as restaurants. The staff at Rentals of Distinction were great to work with; professional and accommodating. We look forward to renting from them again on a future trip!

Perfect for me
Balfour 17 is a lovely, quiet, private location in a very secure area, the apartment has its own private entrance and a beautiful outdoor ground level deck which I enjoyed every morning for reading, coffee and breakfast. The apartment is light filled and modern. The bedrooms are a nice size with the master having its own full bathroom. The other bedroom is large with much storage area. The only issue with this bedroom was the lack of a screen. So while you can open the blinds to let the light in you couldn’t open the window to catch a breeze. There is very fine air conditioning. The property manager was friendly, professional and responsive with any questions during my month’s stay. I have rented an apartment through Rentals of Distinction before and the experience has been wonderful both times.

We really enjoyed the apartment. It was clean, well prepared for Pesach and had a great garden sitting area. Neighborhood benefits included meeting Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu walking down our street and President Reuven Rivlin doing Maftir at local Bet Knesset. Thank you to the manager and Rentals of Distinction.

Balfour apartment
The apartment was very comfortable, ,its price was reasonable, and it had all the accessories needed for our stay. We were very happy that we could host our son, daughter-in-law and newest grandson for Shabbos. All your staff, both in the US and Israel were very helpful, friendly and efficient. Nadav was available almost anytime to answer questions. I would definitely rent from you again and would recommend you to anyone.

The apartment was so clean and Nadav was always easily accessible for any questions or concerns. Looking forward to coming back soon.

Balfour 17
This was our second time renting from Rentals of Distinction. We were once again very pleased with the service Rafi provided. Balfour 17 was fantastic. It was clean, fresh, beautifully decorated, and very comfortable. Nadav met us at the apartment to show us around and followed up the next day to make sure that everything was good. We truly enjoyed our stay there. Devorah Akselrod

Raffi was a pleasure to deal with and accommodated our every need in completing the transaction. He is a professional of the highest order. Local management was equally knowledgeable and caring. The apartment was spacious, well organized, modern, clean and very quiet. There were a couple of minor amenities that were missing but then again some very pleasant surprises that were included. The location of this apartment is very good. A quiet residential area convenient to many centrally located hotels, Emek Refaim, the First Station and the Old City (20 minutes walk). A word of caution for those who intend to walk to and from the apartment. There is a rather steep incline on Jabotinsky to be negotiated for about 3 blocks when returning home from the east. If one is not in good condition it may be a challenge. All in all, a delightful and comfortable stay. Would not hesitate to recommend Akiva and his team.

Balfour Apartment
We rented this apartment for 10 days. Our experience was excellent from beginning to end. Rafi was amazing to deal with. Nadav, who was our Israeli contact was as nice as can be. He even waited until late at night to meet us and get us settled in when we arrived, even though we had been delayed by the airline and came several hours later than expected. The apartment is clean and spacious on a quiet block in Rechavia. Plenty of pillows and blankets. 2 beds in master bedroom, 2 beds in 2nd bedroom. There was also a sofa and a pull out sofa in living room to sleep more guests.The location was great. About 10 minute walk to the mamilla mall, approx 25 to Kotel. Near local groceries and shuls. Approx 15 min walk to Machane Yehuda. We would definitely stay here again.

Balfour 17
The apartment was gorgeous-airy, modern and very inviting. The beds were comfortable, and the linens were great. The kitchen was wonderful and had everything we needed. Everything was "American" standards. Then manager met us upon our arrival and showed us everything we needed to know. He could not have been nicer and more accommodating. In fact, a shower head needed to be replaced, and he arrived early the next morning to take care of it. He checked in with us numerous times over our stay just to make sure everything was fine with the apartment.

Balfour 17 and your service was incredible!
The decision to rent an apartment through was the best one we made while planning our last trip to Israel. Rafi and Akiva are the consummate professionals and Nadav, the property manager in Israel, was always professional, accessible and helpful. The apartment that we rented at Balfour 17, which is located on an incredible block in a beautiful residential area which is easily accessible to the center of town, was far better than the website pictures showed. It met our needs in every different way, from the endless modern amenities, to the lovely linens and towels, to the private entrance, to the generous supply of household goods, to the Shabbos necessities provided (thank you thank you thank you!)---all "pluses" that put a lot less stress and a lot more time for enjoyment into our stay. We hope to rent the same apartment again and other apartments through After renting a great apartment like Balfour 17 we likely will never stay in a tiny hotel room again! Thank you for making our stay in Israel so comfortable and an all-around excellent experience! Susie & Robert van Amerongen Woodmere, NY

Wonderful Experience From Begining To End
Thank you for a great rental experience and for your understanding and willingness to work with us when our flights got rescheduled. The apartment was updated, clean, neat and exactly what we expected. Nadav was extremely helpful and knowledgable and a pleasure to work with. We highly reccomend Rentals of Distinction and will certainly rent from your company again.

Balfour apartment
We rented the Balfour apartment which was beautiful and spacious. We are so glad we didnt go to a hotel as this was much nicer and much more convenient. It was even nicer and bigger than in the pictures! This is the second time we rented an apartment and we will defintely continue doing so on our future trips to israel. Akiva- you were awesome as always! Uri was great as well getting us settled in when we arrived. Highly recommended! Thanks.

Home Away From Home at 17 Balfour
We are "Frequent Flyers" of Rentals of Distinction and 17 Balfour did NOT disappoint! Several factors made our eight night stay exceptional: 1) the prestigious location of the apartment cannot be beat -- it is a most elegant address on a quiet, tree-lined beautiful street which boasts easy walking distance everywhere (from the Old City to Ben Yehuda to Mahane Yehuda to Emek Refaim); 2) the apartment is immaculate with high end appliances, American style beds and linens, chic and comfortable furniture and very tasteful and attractive decor; 3) Nadav the manager was extremely helpful, warm and welcoming and last but not least; 4) Akiva Bookman and his crew offer their signature outstanding customer service with thoughtfulness, professionalism and warm hearts. One thing is for certain Akiva -- we'll be back b"H! Yasher Koach to you and your team!

Mr. Yitz Gelb
The apartment was very nice, spacious and clean. Parking was never a problem, although you have to keep feeding the meter between 8 AM and 6 PM. I would definitely recommend your agency to others.

Great Apartment.
We are very much enjoying our stay in Jerusalem. The apartment is a three minute walk from good friends of ours and it turns out that another friend used to live at 14 Balfour. We just discovered that you can walk through the barrier at Brener which makes things even more convenient. Your home here is really wonderful and we are very pleased to be here.

Great apt
We were very happy with this rental. The rooms were well designed, clean, well maintained, and attractive. There was usually parking available on the street right next to the apartment. Although centrally located the immediate area is quiet. The local property representative, was also very helpful. Only one complaint was that in one of the bedrooms there were no window screens so we either had to use the AC when we didn't otherwise need or want to.

Thanks for making our vacation the best ever!
My husband and I want to thank you for making our trip to Israel the most wonderful vacation we have ever had. Although we have been to Israel many times, this was the first time that we chose to rent an apartment rather than stay in a hotel. It changed the whole experience for the better and I do not think we will ever choose to stay in a hotel again. The apartment on Balfour was beautiful, well furnished, had state of the art appliances, modern bathrooms and was even nicer than the lovely pictures on your website. The location was absolutely fabulous and, although we had a car, we walked to many of the places we wanted to go in Jerusalem due to the very central location of the apartment. Amazingly, even though we were close to everything, Balfour is a quiet, lovely tree-lined street. We hope to return soon and will definitely contact you and your very helpful staff when making our plans for a place to stay in Israel. Thanks again, Carol

Thank you! My stay at Balfour 17 was perfect! The apartment was spacious, beautiful and bright (just like the pictures), very comfortable with all possible amenities. Nadav was always available, most helpful and kind. The location could not have been more perfect! I plan to return and do it again, apartment and all, (if available!), soon. Thanks so much.

The Balfour Apartment is simply amazing. We are thrilled with the apartment and with the apartment manager who met us at the apartment on the day of our arrival and showed us around. Everything is tastefully done and we would recommend it to anyone who needed a place and wanted to be in the heart of Yerushalayim. I want to thank Rental of Distinction for the hard work that they did in helping us secure this place. Thanks!!

We wanted to thank Rentals of Distinction for the apartment, was very good and clean and functional. Would rent it again or recommend it.

We have rented many apartments in Jerusalem since 1991 and 17 Balfour was clearly the best and the service from your office was the best. First the apartment: It is spacious, clean and very well layed out. I particular;y like it being a back, ground floor apartment--no noise and our own little garden. Also, the apartment is located only 1/2 block from the prime minister and about a block from the President, so we feel very safe. Rentals of Distinction service and the apartment manager are also the best. When we got there the heat did not work and the manager fixed it, as the Israelis say, chick chock. And you are always checking to make sure everything is OK. Thank you and we will be back.
By: Howard And Linda Sterling   On: 2016-01-26
We enjoyed staying on Balfour for the second time. The manager was very helpful, even providing 4 portable heaters to help us deal with the unusual cold weather in Jerusalem. Further he was able to get new dairy dishes and silverware as there were very few of the same in the apartment. We hope to rent there again. Thank you,
