“Home away from home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2012

I was fortunate to experience 3 of the Colony Suites during my 4 weeks in Jerusalem.The Levant, The Segol & The Studio.I found them all of a high standard for international travelers. The Manager, on a day to day basis was exemplary with her communications and help and nothing was a problem whatever you needed to ask or have done.What a pleasure! All the apartments are very comfortable and situated right in the heart of the German Colony close to shops and buses. A great place to stay. Thank you Colony for a lovely stay.

We spent a fabulous week at the Colony Suites in April 2012 and I am more than happy to recommend them highly. The apartment has all the amenities one needs , and the location is superb. Checking in and out was very easy as Linda was waiting for us on arrival with a key and with all the instructions needed to operate the appliances.

Highly recommend this hotel for travellers who appreciate a nice quiet oasis to escape from the noise and dust of Jerusalem while having great restaurants and stores right out your back door. We stayed in the studio and appreciated the hotel keeper's efforts to make sure we were set and comfortable. Well-equipped kosher kitchen was for dairy and worked fine for us. About a 30 minute walk through a beautiful to get to the Old City. We would definitely return!

Room Tip: If you have a car, check about parking. This can be a bit of a problem, though innkeeper was very h...

Colony Suites provides comfortable, clean, well furnished apartments in the heart of the German Colony in Jerusalem. The owners are very responsive. The location is fantastic, a short walk to many restaurants and coffee shops and a supermarket and easy walking distance to the Old City and downtown Jerusalem. Accessible to bus lines and in close proximity to many synagogues. Free Wi-Fi that worked excellently.

My husband and I stayed in the Studio apartment in October/November 2011. It was far larger than most studios, clean, comfortably furnished and very quiet. Linda was most helpful with suggestions and addressed any inquiries we had. The owners were very attentive, attending to a minor problem in the apartment within two hours. The location is fantastic - walking distance to restaurants, shops, the Old City and other wonderful areas. The Colony Suites will be our number one choice for accomodations each time we return to Jerusalem.
