A Nice Venue Near the Old City!

As part of the Israel Festival, I attended a performance of the jazz ensemble Niogi at the Jerusalem YMCA my first Saturday in town. The show was amazing on its own, but the... read more

For a delicious, colorful and economical lunch in exquisite surroundings look no further than the charming terrace restaurant at the Jerusalem YMCA. It's located directly across the street from internationally renowned King David Hotel where you can stroll the long corridor enjoying the autographs of the rich and famous tiled into the floor (before or after your meal at the...

I passed by a couple of times and marveled at the beauty of the architecture. Surely, it is the nicest YMCA in the world. I did not go inside.

This is a historic building and part of the landscape of Jerusalem. If you have time, you should take the elevator (small fee) to the top for some outstanding views and great photo ops.

As part of the Israel Festival, I attended a performance of the jazz ensemble Niogi at the Jerusalem YMCA my first Saturday in town. The show was amazing on its own, but the venue did not hurt. Located conveniently next to many a hotel, it was well within walking distance of my own Jerusalem home. The interior was beautiful and... More

Lovely place to stay clean tidy enjoy the surroundings ... Room had a bath but shower was broken. Breakfast was disappointing staff appear to be volunteers and don't really help your breakfast experience.

The building is beautiful. Gorgeous stained glass windows. Quaint little restaurant outside with surprisingly good food for reasonable prices. The hotel itself was impeccably clean. This is nothing like any YMCA I have ever seen. This was an easy walk from the Dan Panorama and across from the King David hotel.

We joined the YMCA when we moved to Jerusalem in May after reviewing the alternatives in Jerusalem. The other gyms had terrible hours,with Shabbat closures etc. The only place that is airconditioned in the whole building is the aerobic room and the weight room. The swimming pool hours this summer are very restricted with summer camp and women only. However... More

Gym was very basic - there was: 1. About 3 barbells 2. A squat rack 3. Bench Press 4. A range of dumbbells 5. Swimming pool Changing rooms and the pool were warm, dark & most - felt like the perfect incubator for bacteria culture. It was pretty expensive on a per-entry basis from what I recall (8-10 GBP).

The YMCA tower is one of the best ways to view Jerusalem! For 10 shekels you ascend an elevator and get an unsurpassed view of this city! The tower soars over the surrounding area and four balconies allow you unimpeded views of the city. I recently took a visitor to the city and spent one hour overlooking the King David... More
