      Nice hotel”

      Liked this hotel! The only thing wrong was that it is next to a mosque! And every morning at 4.30am there was a call for pray on loud speakers!!!!! I do appreciate we are in a holy city! The plus side it was walking distance to the old city! Also the conceage staff were very good at organising our trips to all the sites! We did eat in the hotel a few nights and was very good

      Beautiful old building. Our room was nice but not overly special. Refurbishing work was done in rooms next to our which was noisy in the morning - we should have been I formed about this upfront, but front office did not and actually denied it (well, one could see the work through the open doors!)

      I have thoroughly enjoyed my six night stay. I had a well appointed Junior Suite, kept spotlessly clean. The buffet breakfast was great and the service was always friendly and efficient. All the members of the staff make you feel at home. I would recommend The American Colony and I look forward to a second stay in a not too distant future.

      The only thing was, we asked for a double bed which we hadn't and we found the room noisy because of aircos outside perhaps? As we didn't use ours

      Wonderful hotel”

      Stayed here with my parents for our last two nights in Jerusalem- what a beautiful charming hotel full of character, such a change from the large corporate hotels we had stayed in on our group tour of Israel. As my Mum said staying at this hotel really made her feel like she was in the Middle East as opposite to the international hotels where we felt we could have been anywhere in the world. Staff we very friendly and very accommodating as my parents were welcome to stay and use the hotel facilities as they waited to get picked up for a late flight. Very atmospheric, and beautifully set out hotel 🙂

      Fantastic Staff”

      An excellent staff made our stay particularly nice. We made a couple unusual requests and the professional staff at the American Colony stepped up without hesitation to provide for our needs. We hesitated before booking in this location but found it to be very welcoming and comfortable. The breakfast provided was also fantastic and diverse even by Israeli big breakfast standards. Our only less than stellar comment is that the selection of books and literature in the gift/book shop is very one sided and partisan. This shouldn't have been totally surprising but given the excellence and absence of political statements everywhere else it became noticeable. A great hotel.
