4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

I stayed with my friend and two children (boys aged 10) for five nights in June. The hotel is a lovely old building, really visually beautiful with a lovely outdoor seating area for breakfast (very nice, lots of options), other meals, or a quiet drink. The location is excellent and meant an easy walk to everything in the Old City.... More

Rooms are quite simple, but the location can't be beat. The Three Arches has a beautiful tower that can be seen from anywhere in the city (and has great views from the top!). Israeli breakfast on the hotel's lovely patio. It's only a short walk to the Jaffa Gate, the First Station for food and live music, and the Shuk... More

Forget what you imagine when you think of staying in a Y. The Three Arches YMCA in Jerusalem is a comfortable hotel,with a really cozy patio restaurant in a fantastic location. It is directly across the street from the famous King David Hotel and close to many fine restaurants. When my hair dryer blew a fuse, maintenance as there in... More

I don't know where to begin... This hotel was recommended by my friend who lives in Israel.,.across from the King David hotel for a fraction of the price! Rabie who works the front desk, is a HUGE asset for this hotel... although everybody there was ready with a helpful hand and a quick smile. Rabie helped us in numerous ways....going... More

We typically stay at a Marriott in Tel Aviv while visiting Israel but we decided that for Passion Week, we would stay in Jerusalem. We were pleased with our decision. The YMCA is located right near Old Jerusalem. While the rooms are nothing special, they are sufficient and I was happy to save US $400 per night (easily) to stay... More

This hotel is so beautiful. The building itself is old and castle-like, and the foyer boasts a stunning, wall-sized stained glass window. The location cannot be beat, either. Just a 10 minute walk from the Old City, it's easy to get around to all of the ancient sites. If you're up for it, you can even walk from the Mt.... More

This magnificent building was completed in 1933. it is opposite the King David Hotel and it is 15 min walking distance from Jaffa Gate. It is close to Ben-Yeuda street and the Shuk is 30 min from the Hotel. The rooms are ok with every facility with en suite bathroom. The rooms on the back side of the building are... More

This is a great and beautiful place that is located close to all the historical sites you will want to see in this city. Only Yad Vashem or Bethlehem or Ramallah would need a taxi or bus. There's a pool too! There's gas station across the street to fill your fridge with water, beer or snacks.

We booked the hotel because of its location which is fabulous as is the building. Impressive architecture on the outside and the reception area is beautiful. Check out the ceiling. There it all end. We had problems checking in as they insisted that we had cancelled even though we could show them our print out which they disputed. They took... More
