Cozy spot
Just one night's stay. Felt welcomed and protected by this place with small, somewhat dated rooms in furnishing, but otherwise all was well. Good breakfast buffet; decent liquor list for the evening bar with wonderful outside seating and lots of privacy.

Magic in the heart of Jerusalem
The staff, the building, and the bar.
Magical. The ambience contains all of that is found in the hearts of the people of East Jurusalem: warmth, generosity, and hospitality. Let your heart be filled in this place, even as it feels the heaviness of all that is around. The staff were first class. The shop is incredible. The bar and restaurant are terrific.

Unique property with excellent reception staff
The architecture, breakfast in the garden, the warm welcome
I have been visiting Jerusalem every 6 weeks for nearly four years and would have stayed here more often had it been more central. The reception staff and those in the downstairs bar and restaurant are exceptional. The building has a great sense of history, although the rooms can be a bit disappointing and the "de luxe" rooms could do with a touch more effort on the decor, given the healthy prices charged. With the exception of the hopeless staff at breakfast, the service is outstanding, particularly when compared to the alternatives. If you want style, go to the Mamilla. If you want pomp, go to the King David. If you want 5 star quality combined with genuinely warm hospitality and strong local flavour, the American Colony is the only credible choice.
