This magnificent building looks ancient but was only completed in 1933. You can't miss it because of its huge tower and it is in the centre of West Jerusalem, opposite the King David Hotel. The manager is always a Christian, and there are two deputy managers, one Muslim and one Jewish. Everyone gets on famously, everyone who stays there loves... More

A strange experience at this hotel. A wonderful building, from around 1930, a painted hall, a great tower with a wonderful wiew around Jerusalem... Just ask for the elevator key and go up to 6th floor (with a camera!) But old furniture, some problems with the electronic keys and air conditioning. The breakfast was ok. The Conference hall also ok,... More

ocation is perfect, its a beautiful hotel but the rooms are sooo old and not stylish. Coming to a Boutique hotel you would expect a better looking room. breakfast was average, below our expectations. service was ok, we were promised a late check in and were turned down on the next day - needs improvement.

The Three Arches hotel is located in the beautiful Jerusalem YMCA building. The building itself is amazing and beautiful. The front desk was warm and welcoming and staff was always friendly. The room was clean but really worn. The carpet was old and stained, the bathroom fixtures were in need of replacement, and the bathroom amenities minimal. The bed was... More

This historic YMCA is well located near the Old City, and restaurants. Beautiful old building. Very helpful service and staff, brought us an electric kettle and extra pillows. Beds comfortable. Very clean and comfortable for an older building. Rooms pleasant. Good breakfast. Wifi a bit weak at times

This hotel is very nicely located close to old town, shopping district and nightclubs. It's obvious it's quite old and that it was once very posh. Now its a bit rugged edge, but still living on the high standard of old. In fact I didn't miss anything or had any complaints. The WiFi was good downstairs but above OK in... More

While the rooms are dated and could use some TLC, the location and staff far make up for that! I did not visit Jerusalem for the rooms! When I arrived, they told me the wi-fi was having trouble and may not be strong in the rooms, but I was there for 6 nights and had perfect wi-fi at all times.... More

The 3 Arches YMCA Hotel in Jerusalem has for years hoped that the wonderful location,building & grounds - including a splendid raised outside restaurant terrace (good food!) in which to sit, & watch the comings/goings at the famous King David Hotel opposite - would compensate for the horrible crumbling ugly brown & beige bedrooms with stained old carpets & curtains...

This hotel was recommended years ago. It is in an excellent location near the Old City which is a plus. It is not a big high rise tour group hotel, another plus. However, it is showing its age and lack of care. The wi-fi that is "all over the hotel" is weak.
