Spiriyually Jerusalem is an unmatched holy city except probably by the cradle of Christianity the little town of , Bethlehem, less than ten miles to the south But the brightest star of all hotels in Jerusalem without any doubt is the American Colony Hoyel. A luxury hotel cuddled in more 150 years old mansions. Modern history of the region include...

This is a "leading hotels of the world" hotel and it shows. Perfect service, great food, gorgeous rooms. Location is also good and a little outside of the tourist circuit so that is nice. HOWEVER, it is quite expensive and you will pay high prices for every little thing. If you can find a deal on this hotel somehow, grab...

A collection of several buildings in a beautiful setting, this hotel offers luxury with an old British colonial feel. The room was large as was the bathroom. The balcony was a great place to enjoy the evening. I did find the bed to be short and anyone over 6 feet might find it cramped. The courtyard garden was very pleasant...

History lives through the walls of this hotel from Churchill to Bob Dylan! The rooms themselves are rather minimalist not to say modest but the hotel is in a good location within walking distance approx 10 min from the Damas Gate. During the Easter weekend, they serve a nice breakfast by way of a small buffet. There is a lovely...

The American Colony is historic and elegant, and you should see it, perhaps to sit outside or inside and have a drink. There is an excellent bookshop on site, and one of the best gift shops in town offering fine textiles, jewelry, and tiles. The food is over-priced, and the service is leisurely. Go for the ambience, which might include...

The American Colony Hotel is generally a nicely appointed, traditional hotel, situated in the Arabic area of Jerusalem, which offers a charming and authentic experience in this area of the city. The location is convenient and the Wailing Wall and the old market are about 15 minutes away by foot. The hotel is quite charming although the walls in the...

Dear JimboBerlin, Thank you for posting this detailed review and for rating us at 4 stars although you clearly had some serious issues with our food. I have to say that your experience of such poor-tasting food is unusual and a look at many reviews on this site will show up some inconsistencies in certain areas of the hotel but...

I had heard a lot about the hotel and decided to spend a night there. For those who like Heritage Hotels which have not been upgraded while retaining their original flavour this could be a dream. Personally I didn't care much for double doors to bathrooms and creaky plumbing or no daylight! The room was noisy. They did not do...

Dear Lalit, I read your comments with interest and some disappointment. We have researched your comments and I am happy to say that we will trim the upper part of garden bush outside room 12 to let some more light in, but we cannot remove it as it provides a good acoustic and viewing barrier which we need to maintain....

We have stayed in many hotels in Jerusalem and were looking forward to our first stay at this iconic building for a special birthday. The room was fine( but the service was patchy at best . Breakfast was good (not great by Israel standards) but the service was appalling. Trying to find someone to serve coffee and then it coming...
