Fantastic hotel
Great experience, beautiful hotel and gardens

American Colony Hotel The Leading Hotels of the World, Jerusalem
Beautiful and Historic Stay in Jerusalem
A brilliant and beautiful hotel, steeped in history, a short walk to the Old City but removed from the hustle and bustle of downtown. A true oasis in a former pasha's residence. There is nothing else like it!

American Colony Hotel The Leading Hotels of the World, Jerusalem
Outstanding experience
We stayed for a few days and they made us feel at home. Its a throwback type of hotel where the feel is colonial but the luxury is 21st century. The meals were all good, especially the breakfast. The bistro downstairs is outstanding and is buzzing in the evenings with a good fun crowd. Overall its a great place to unwind at the end of a day of touring and sight seeing. I didn't like the fact that there is no coffee machine in the room. It is a little off the beaten path but there are always cabs available within a few minutes. There is very little in the way of shopping or restaurants in the area but that is the only drawback. This is a go to place in Jerusalem
