“Great location, nice hotel.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2013

Older hotel with lots of history. Rooms small but adequate. Breakfast good. Location very very good; easy walk to Old City, but, trams, and most other place in Jerusalem.

“Historic but average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

The YMCA is just across the King David Hotel. It is a landmark in the New City of Jerusalem. The arches and magnificent design of the building is worth the visit. I have never stayed at the YMCA, but I have attend concerts and eaten at the restaurant. I do not believe that you would be missing anything if you failed to visit this place. But if you want a cool glass of lemonade and a historic view of the King David Hotel, this is the place.

“service and food dropped from excellent to never again”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013

We always looked forward to have dinner at this place whenever we came to Jerusalem. It used to be a good place.

However, now it is a total RIPOFF.

Service: rude, not interested, ignorant - ok, there could have been a bad day, so tick this off

Food: the chef stands outside, chews on his finger nails and does in General not look very clean - the food is tasty, ok ... but very little. For ILS 85 (EUR 20) you get a plate full of rice and 5 little meatballs. Or a plate full of rice and two small slices of chicken.

Astronomical prices.

Cappucino is ok, but do not order desert. They will just forget about it.

The shock you get with the bill.

They either had a change in management or they just do not care anymore.
we will not go there again anyway.

“A nice surprise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013

I would never expect to be reviewing a restaurant at a YMCA, but the 3 Arches has excellent food and at a good price. If you are looking for somehwere to eat near the King David or David Citadel Hotels this is an excellent option. It is open during Shabbat, so if you need an option you can look this way. THey have great Hummus and Middle Eastern/Mediterrean fare. On a side note, the YMCA has a pretty good fitness center.
