The view of the Old City is beautiful from inside this exceptional hotel. The clientele is a mix of locals, international and American tourists - mostly touring the City and the rest of Israel. The rooms and hallways could do with some renovation (worn carpet, outdated technology) but the location and service make up for that shortcoming. The food is...

This is a nice hotel with a great location close to the Old City in Jerusalem. It's a little pricey for my taste, and still it's beautiful & the brunch is great. I specifically want to mention that Axa Bayah was a fantastic employee --- made me feel so cared for !!! Thanks Axa.

I particularly liked the pureed root vegetables, the peking duck, the lamb spare ribs and the veal. The desserts were excellent, the...
