The hotel is 5 minutes to walk from the Jerusalem old city. The hotel has an excelent breakfast buffet - highly recommended, its worth. The pool is kinda historic small sized, but nice to have. Very nice is the hotel tower, you can access it for free and have a great view to the city.

Three Arches staff are so courteous, friendly and helpful! Jazmine, who works at the service desk, was such a life saver when she let me call a friend from the front desk phone. Jazmine also made arrangements for a shuttle to the airport at a cheap price! One of the house keepers, Rula, was so kind in offering and carrying...

This is not your grandma's YMCA. This is a magnificent building from outside and the inside with good amenities - spa, gym, and breakfast including. The rooms are older but this only adds to the classic charm from the era when it was built. My favorite parts, besides the architecture, are the very central location, 10 min walk from Mamilla,...

I've been with my family in ymca three arches for 6 night,all was nice. Rooms are vintage but good,service is daily and efficient. Breakfast is OK but not always is included in the price (make attention when you reserve an accomodation). The building is very nice,it's correct to affirm that this is the most beautiful hotel in Jerusalem even if...

Such a nice place to stay. It feels like an old clubhouse, feels like old money is around, yet it's a lively place with children and regular people using the workout facilities. It's also a place with a mission, to provide facilities that all children, Israelis and Palestinians, can use together. My first room was cute, but very very small--no...

While the location is great (few minutes walking from many landmarks including the old city) and the building is amazing with historic and impressive structure with small gardens that makes you feel for a second like you are in different place and era, the hotel itself (rooms, food etc) is mediocre. The rooms are outdated with furniture like from the...

I booked this out of convenience as my tour would depart from this hotel and given that price was relatively cheap for Jerusalem standards, I did not think twice about booking it. It would never cross my mind to book a YMCA as I used to associate it with youth hostels. However I think it turned out great at the...

The buffet breakfast at this hotel in the center of Jerusalem is rich and genuine. No flattering tourist tastes, the real genuine oriental goodies, like Shakshouka and Egyptian Foul, with local cheeses, salads and pastry. Pleasant surroundings and very kind service. Good value for the price.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The YMCA Three Arches Hotel, with its 152 ft high central bell tower, is a Jerusalem landmark recognized the world over. Designed by the world famous architect of the Empire State Building, the hotel offers a blend of old world charm, friendly hospitality, art works and architectural wonders, together with modern, comfortable accommodations to ensure a pleasant and memorable stay in this remarkable city. The external facade of the hotel bears intricate sculptures and inscriptions in English, Arabic and Hebrew reflecting the YMCA's historical role as a meeting place and a spiritual haven in this intense and ancient city. The beautiful gardens and lawns, graceful shade trees, and stone pathways around the hotel are open for our guests' strolling pleasure. The hotel's public areas feature high-ceiling halls and walls often lined with colorful modern works of Israeli and Palestinian artists. The elegant Archibald C. Harte Restaurant restaurant serves culinary delights to our guests, with its garden terrace a delightful oasis in the midst of the city on sunny days and mild evenings. That same sense of tranquility pervades the hotel's rooms and suites, where guests may relax and gather their strength for days of sightseeing or meetings in bustling Jerusalem. The ancient Jaffa Gate, main entrance to the fascinating walled Old City, is just a few minutes' walk away, as are shops, vibrant cafes and restaurants as well as the cultural attractions and night life of the modern metropolis. Three Arches Hotel awaits your arrival, at the very heart of Jerusalem, where peace and quiet reigns, with a pervasive sense of welcome and well-being. ... more   less
