A clean-cut luxury hotel which is perfect for exploring the historic heart of Jerusalem.
This sleek hotel was voted one of the best in the Middle East at the Condé Nast Traveler Readers' Choice Awards 2018, and it has a prime Jerusalem location – just a five-minute stroll from the Old City, overlooking hot spots including the Tower of David and Jaffa Gate, and only 15 minutes to the Western Wall and Dome of the Rock. A stone’s throw across the road you’ll find the upscale and open-air Alrov Mamilla Avenue, lined with 140 shops, restaurants and cafés, and the hotel’s interior is just as swish – Italian designer Piero Lissoni has blended refined glass, wood and white finishes with natural limestone reminiscent of Jerusalem’s warm, sandy colours.
Set yourself up for a day of exploring with a typically eclectic and hearty Israeli breakfast in the Dining Room, whipped up on live cooking stations and accompanied by pretty patio views. The Happy Fish Restaurant does excellent seafood and has chic porcelain-tile décor plus an outdoor terrace, and we recommend spending some time at the Rooftop Restaurant and bar area where you can enjoy laid-back al fresco dining on cushioned wicker sofas as you watch the sun set over the spires and battlements of the Old City. There’s also a basement swimming pool, separate hammams for men and women at the Akasha Spa and a sun deck.
The superbly designed rooms are spacious and modern without being too sterile, and well lit thanks to large windows. Stylish touches include bespoke art and lamps, hand-made woodwork, luxurious Frette linens and colourful throws on the large beds. Upgrade from a city-view Studio Room to a slightly larger Executive Room or an elegant Mamilla Suite – Suites have a separate living room with a sliding panel wall and a walk-in closet.
