A fantastic hotel- with its own history. The hotel was a "home away from home" for us for 4 memorable days/ nights. The staff are excellent- professional, helpful and knowledgeable. Thank you to Mouayad and Alex the front desk for helping us with restaurant suggestions- outside of the hotel. The breakfast ( included in the tariff) is a lovely balance... More

My friends and I were in Jerusalem for a conference. We dined in the American Colony Hotel one night at the Arabesque Restaurant and I absulately loved it. I had seafood platter and ice cream and afterwards tea with mint leaves. Seafood was better than expected. It was fresh and well seasoned. Though the ice cream was quite nice, I... More

I love this place. It's the second time I have been here. It's so pretty and welcoming. One complaint is the service for food and beverage is slow. It's worth a visit. It's for anyone family's couples and this time solo don't miss it. A friend joined me last night for dinner and the food was lovely. Staff were very... More

This is one of the few hotels left in the world which retains the soul of the place. The hotel is deluxe in the best way possible. The courtyard and gardens are INCREDIBLE and beautiful. East Jerusalem is enchanting! It's exotic and clearly in the Middle East!

The hotel is beautiful, staff welcoming, rooms clean. We enjoyed the comfort of the beds. We are in love with the garden where we could spend hours and hours. There are no negative points! Strongly recommended!

American Colony hotel is one of the most pleasant and beautiful hotels I have visited ever. The ambience, the decor, the service, everything is just wonderful. An oasis in the heart of Jerusalem. We also enjoyed having a lovely romantic buffet dinner in the beautiful garden of the hotel.

Just a night there for a quick sightsee trip. Expect an old world style charm. Near to the old city - 5 minute by taxi. Has an outdoor dining area and lovely bar area at night. Room small but had a charming small balcony. Clean and comfortable. Just expect an older look to the room, bed, bathroom and you'll enjoy... More

This hotel is by the far best place if you want immerse yourself in the atmospherics and history of this ancient city (whilst not forgoing the comfort of an upmarket boutique hotel). We were lucky to be upgraded to a suite (room 16). Apparently this room hosted first tentative discussions that led to Oslo peace accord were held. It was... More

The hotel is historical and very nice. The landscape is beautiful. However. The lobby is to small and the room was not what I have expected. The room is basic and does not justify the price. It's dated and doesn't have a final touch. For the price that I have paid it's disappointing. I think the hotel is overpriced and... More
