The other reviewers have it right. The YMCA offers:
- A perfect location, within easy walking distance of almost everything
- A spectacular historic building
- Simple, fairly spartan, but fully adequate rooms
- A lovely restaurant
- Charming service, though without the uniform efficiency that one would expect of higher-priced, corporate hotel chains,

There are nicer places to stay in Jerusalem, but expect to pay twice as much.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the front of the hotel overlook the front garden and dining terrace

I had always admired the architecture and location of the Three Arches Hotel, and this time got to experience a 5-day stay, which was great. It is hard to top the location, the cafe/restaurant on the terrace is magical, and the room was clean, spacious and had a view. Importantly for Jerusalem, the hotel is also economical compared with the competition.

This is our preferred hotel in Jerusalem.
It is in an old building, across the street from the prestigious King David Hotel.
The rooms are simple but large, clean, comfortable and some have nice views.
The location is perfect - close to all attractions in the city and in the old city as well.
You don't need a car! Can walk everywhere.
Excellent value for money.

You have never seen a YMCA like this one. The property was designed by the same man that did the Empire State building and they were built at the same time. From the bell tower you can see the old walled city, the Dome of the rock, the green wall and beyond that Sameria and Judea.
Our room was rather small and dated but comfortable. The complimentary breakfast was good and changes daily (no meat). The resturant also serves breakfast to order, lunch and dinner and offers beer and wine. There is free wi-fi in the lobby and a pay for use computer, There is a pool that is scheduled for men and women to swim at different times. From the garden terrace you can dine or enjoy a drink overlooking the famous King David hotel.
Overall a good value for capital city hotel. I will stay there again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the King David
