American Coloy?

In searching for a hotel for an upcoming trip, I am intrigued by the American Colony Hotel. But 3 Qs: Is it a safe area for a Jew?, is it readily accessible by taxi? and is the area convenient to visit the Old City?

Again - the Ambassador would not be kosher and there are not many eating options around.

Likewise the American Colony is not kosher. most East Jerusalem hotels and restaurants are not kosher, except some of the Jewish owned establishments.

Suzanne posted a cut and paste of a whole article the day she died. Very interesting.


( note; the way TA works, probably only the first line of the above URL will be hypelinked, so you can't just click, but need to cut and paste the whole thing into your browser. )
