This is a unique, and special, hotel like no other. Leave aside the character of the hotel itself and its venerable "history" - starting with Lawrence of Arabia, Winston Churchill,and other notables to this day, having been guests - the truly incomparable garden courtyard is magical. Nothing can beat dining in this tranquil and beautiful oasis. What adds to the...

If you want to visit this hotel ., Just go to walk around. Not eat , not sleep. In Jerusalem you can eat excellent meal for 10$. In this hotel you will get abused by the prices . 50$ At least because you are tourist.there are a lot of choices in Jerusalem. Try somewhere else

We stayed at the American Colony Hotel over Easter Sunday in 2017. What a nice hotel. The food in the restaurant was superb, the bar was a fun place to have a drink and the rooms were impeccably clean. Located in the Jerusalem it was convenient and we never felt the hotel was crowded.

It's the loveliest of hotels with a garden of Eden! The food is delicious and you almost forget where you are. The only negative criticism of the hotel would be the location, as it could be a little closer to most attractions. Expect a lot of walking if you live here.

This is our third visit to the American colony and it always makes me feel like we need to plan a return trip the following month. We enjoyed a calm and beautiful Easter weekend with my wife and daughter and stayed in an apartment located on the back side of the hotel. It was a few minutes extra walk but...

This was our first stay at the American Colony Hotel and what a hotel it is.

From 3/31 to 4/4/2017 my wife and I stayed in the American Colony hotel in Jerusalem. We have booked a penthouse suite for $ 875/night including breakfast. Usually when we are in Jerusalem we stay in the King David hotel but this time we decided to try the American Colony. No doubt that the American Colony hotel is a five...

Thank you so much for staying with us and for your kind comments. As we have written to you, we did look in the room you vacated on receipt of your notification and were unable to find any money. I am sure you appreciate that trying to trace money taken from a wallet in a room hours or days after...

This is not my first time at the Colony and it will not be my last. The hotel is one of the best I've ever stayed in and I have been travelling for business for over 20 years. I recommend this hotel to any one who asks.

We really loved the American Colony Hotel. Beautiful courtyards and gardens. Fitting traditional design, with period pieces. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. Location is in West Bank but it's a 5-10 min walk to the Damascus Gate and a quick cab to anywhere.

The hotel was lovely inside and out. Beautiful courtyard with blooming flowers, great breakfasts and dinner in the main dining room. The staff was friendly and helpful. The room was equipped with a comfortable bed and linens, chairs and a desk - all classically decorated.
