We often spend a night or two in a hotel in Jerusalem. As often as not we choose the YMCA. It is not a luxury hotel - for that go to the the King David or the American Colony, but if you are looking for decent accommodations at a reasonable price the YMCA is the place. The location is superb,...

This hotel has not only a fantastic location from where you can walk to either the Old Jerusalem (10-15 minutes) or the newer parts, like Jaffa street where you get all the restaurants and bars. Also, the decor is very good, service excellent, clean rooms, etc. I can't say about the price since I didn't compare too much with other...

This hotel is certainly not posh but is comfortable and located within walking distance to the Old City. Breakfast buffet, included in the cost, has a variety of delicious choices to start your day. We stayed here for a week in July 2013 and would highly recommend it to others.

I spent only one in this YMCA in Jerusalem and I am quite happy with my choice. Great location and very beautiful view from my room. The bed was comfortable and the room was clean. The staff is competent and friendly. And the breakfast was good.

Great location, beautiful building, wonderful staff, excellent breakfast! There aren't many negatives about this hotel in Jerusalem. The rooms are plain, but my bed was comfortable, the air conditioning worked perfectly and there was a variety of TV channels in various languages, including English. There is free WiFi throughout the hotel. The breakfast offerings were awesome: omelets made to order,...

The hotel is beautifully decorated in oriental style and has many facilities: well-equipped gym, squash grounds, swimming pool, sauna, nice quiet library with two pianos and a concert hall that hosts many festivals of classical music.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The YMCA Three Arches Hotel, with its 152 ft high central bell tower, is a Jerusalem landmark recognized the world over. Designed by the world famous architect of the Empire State Building, the hotel offers a blend of old world charm, friendly hospitality, art works and architectural wonders, together with modern, comfortable accommodations to ensure a pleasant and memorable stay in this remarkable city. The external facade of the hotel bears intricate sculptures and inscriptions in English, Arabic and Hebrew reflecting the YMCA's historical role as a meeting place and a spiritual haven in this intense and ancient city. The beautiful gardens and lawns, graceful shade trees, and stone pathways around the hotel are open for our guests' strolling pleasure. The hotel's public areas feature high-ceiling halls and walls often lined with colorful modern works of Israeli and Palestinian artists. The elegant Archibald C. Harte Restaurant restaurant serves culinary delights to our guests, with its garden terrace a delightful oasis in the midst of the city on sunny days and mild evenings. That same sense of tranquility pervades the hotel's rooms and suites, where guests may relax and gather their strength for days of sightseeing or meetings in bustling Jerusalem. The ancient Jaffa Gate, main entrance to the fascinating walled Old City, is just a few minutes' walk away, as are shops, vibrant cafes and restaurants as well as the cultural attractions and night life of the modern metropolis. Three Arches Hotel awaits your arrival, at the very heart of Jerusalem, where peace and quiet reigns, with a pervasive sense of welcome and well-being. ... more   less
