Though a little taxi drive away from the old city, hotel grounds are an oasis, well maintained period feel to it. Book one of the sultan wives' rooms - these are wonderful 19th c settings. Food is great, wine selection is perfect, staff is beyond attentive.

We were offered an upgrade when we checked into the hotel to one of the Pasha Rooms-Room 5 which was a huge ornate room on the second floor of the main building and overlooked the pool area. We never went to look at our orginal room-it was so nice. So, if you get a chance to upgraded to one of... More

If you have (a lot of) money, there is no other place to stay in Jerusalem than American Colony, the most historical, beautiful hotel in town. Nestled in an ancient Ottoman palace, the American Colony offers incredibly beautiful surroundings and a legendary setting. Its restaurant and bars are THE place to be. While King David is mainly packed with tourists,... More

This was our first trip to Jerusalem and The American Colony had been strongly recommended to me by an italian friend journalist who regularly stays there. I must say we were not disappointed ! everyone loved it . My parents enjoyed the wonderfully relaxing garden when too tired to visit the old town round the corner. The kids were absolutely... More

I stayed at this hotel 4 nights with my mother in January, Things started out well when we checked into this hotel. On the 3rd night however I couldn't sleep when I laid down at 12am because I heard loud clanking from the area downstairs to the point that the wall was vibrating behind the bed. I called the front... More

Nice little space of luxury and boutique hotel, excellent restaurant and hideaway bar, breakfast also very good and large spread to choose from for every taste. A little expensive but well worth the service and comfort in detail.

We spent three days in this hotel and we had really a good time. The room was over the swimming pool and very quiet (maybe because of winter season). The bathroom was spacious. The atmosphere of the hotel is very nice since is not a big anonymous hotel, but really a charming hotel. The breakfast was good as well as... More

I spent three nights at the American Colony in mid February. On checkin I was upgraded to a Deluxe Pasha Suite not more than 50 feet from the hotel entrance. It was very spacious, with a comfortable bed and an enormous bathroom and was very quiet notwithstanding its location. The front desk was extremely helpful in finding ATMs, recommending tours...

I stayed here for 3 night in 2011 during asingle trip to Jerusalem. The room had the feel of being a home away from home. It had a simple momochrome art deco style and had all features I wanted. Food service etc was unpretentious and professional. I will definitely try to stay here if back in the region.
