Hi. We live in NY, celebrating my son's bar mitzvah in Israel, on succos.
Booking tickets for the flight seems to have been the easiest part. We're looking for a place to stay in yerushalayim, an apartment to rent, that's walking distance to the prima kings hotel, that has a succah. Also, how do we find out about leining on yom tov sheini simchas torah (prefer at the kotel) with a kiddush?
Any advice or information, is appreciated. TIA.

The hotels normally have second day minyanim for the tourists.

If you can, I would highly suggest you hire someone to take care of all the arrangements for you. That's what most people I know who plan a destination simcha do because it's much easier for someone local who already knows the ropes and has the experience and the language skills than it would be for a newbie. Why reinvent the wheel?

We're not planning a party or anything, we have little family there.
But who would you recommend?

We prefer an apartment to hotel, since my husband likes to sleep in the succah.

A lot of hotels have private sukkahs available for sleeping, often on the roof.

If you're looking for an apartment, don't forget to specify that you need a sukkah mirpesset, preferably with pre-built sukkah.

Anyway, you can daven in a hotel minyan even if you're not staying there. Most areas with a high level of tourists will have at least one second day minyan.

This is a Yerushalayim apartment rental listing. It may be outdated, but worth contacting the places that seem feasible. Most have listed if there is a sukkah or not.

How big of an apt? How many people do you need to sleep?

2-3 bedroom, sleep 6 but one sleeps in the succah so really 5 and definitely some can sleep on couches.

Won't your Bar Mitzvah boy also want to sleep in the sukkah?
