I stayed here (the apartment in their picture, right on Emek Refayim) with my granddaughter and son. It was perfect. Walking in the neighborhood was magical--I highly recommend a walking guide that will tell you the fascinating history of the neighborhood. Loved having the kitchen and markets nearby. When we ran out of towels, David rushed over with more. The... More

My wife and I have visited Jerusalem many times. We always rent an apartment to feel less like visitors and a bit like residents. The German Colony is one of our favorite locations. Over the years the neighborhood has improved and offers many fun eating options as well as proximity to the new and exciting "first rail station." The one... More

This is the second time I have stayed in this apartment complex managed by Leeora, Linda and David who again were totally supportive, helpful and professional. Any question was answered promptly and any request was no trouble at all. The apartment itself is clean and manageable with every necessity available. It's comfortable and fitted out with every creature comfort. I... More

Dear Helen, Thank you so much for the review. We are so glad that you have chosen to stay with Colonysuites on your past two visits to Jerusalem. Regarding the washing machine cycle, although it may go on for an hour, the electricity rate for that time is around NIS1.5 (40 cents). We very much look forward to hosting you... More

We walked all over the city and never once took a cab. You cant find a better spot. In the evenings there are so many restaurants at your doorstep and First Station, with culture, entertainment and first class restaurants is a relaxed 10 minute walk along the old renovated/ restored railroad path. Linda was a great help from beginning to... More

It was clean, convenient and home away from home. We'd stay there again when we return to Jerusalem. While we weren't expecting much, we found that our apartment met all our needs and more. It was home after traveling to north Israel, and we could come home and have a cozy, relaxing place to stay. A grocery store was down... More

I'll start with the positive: the location of this apartment was very nice - in the Emek Refaim area of Jerusalem. The on-site person, Linda, met us at the apartment and was very gracious with our late arrival due to flight delays. She was gracious and helpful. A warning regarding suitability: when we arrived, we had to carry all of... More

Lovely flat, perfect location and an incredibly helpful staff: The living room is small but I was able to conduct meetings and host a small dinner. Nice quiet street in the German Colony- close to everything. I will be returning.

Wonderful penthouse apartment. Good location--walking distance from Emek Refaim, shops, restaurants, close grocery store. Beautiful views of Jerusalem. Parking available, free, in back. Lots of space. Nicely appointed. Plenty of hot water and heat. Our stay was perfect.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Colony Suites are stylish, self-contained holiday apartments for short term accommodation in the heart of the German colony Jerusalem. Suitable for singles and families ranging from a brief visit to a longer stay. Comfortable and elegant, the apartments are designed for maximum comfort. Included in the rent is the weekly cleaning service and the changing of linen and towels. Nestled between the old and new parts of the capital, the German Colony is the most charming area in Jerusalem. Built by the German Templars in the 1870's, the area is known for its unique architecture and cafe culture. The colony is close to the major tourist sites (walking distance to the old city) and the host of several local attractions. There is no better location than Colony Suites, around the corner from the post-office, bank, supermarket, chemist, cafes and public pool and gym. ... more   less
