Weekend I visited my wife our two children 2 and 4 And parents, a great place relative to the center. Service courteous place is very clean. One night was probably at a bar mitzvah until late hours of the evening. This was a big problem for our children who could not sleep. Other than that it was great Thank you

This is an amazing old building built in the 1930s and has a wonderful lobby area and an excellent breakfast buffet. The location is great - just a few minutes walk to the Old City or to the Jaffa Road area, with a lovely park just opposite. The room seemed a bit tired but had everything in them. The single...

The hotel exceeded my expectations. Located perfectly, my room was clean and spacious, the breakfast was delicious (lots of choices from eggs and pancakes to traditional Middle Eastern, as well as excellent pastries), and the service was fine. The free parking was an added bonus, although the lot is small and it does fill up. It's not a luxury property,...

I certainly wasn't expecting a luxury hotel experience at a YMCA, but I was hoping for more than we got. The building itself, the lobby, and the restaurant are certainly grand, but the rooms themselves are vintage YMCA. They were small, not completely clean, and not very comfortable. One of the beds/mattress in my room tilted to the side, and...

Thinking about the YMCA is all about weighing what you really want and need with the things you will give up to get them. Do you want to be in the Old City, steps away from the major historical sites, able to walk almost everywhere? You cannot find a better location than the Y. After all, the King David is...

Towering above the old city stands the YMCA Three arches hotel. It's entrance bears a message of unity and peace in Arabic, Hebrew and English. It is this sense of grandeur and benevolence that pervades the entire place. Although you could find more modern, cleaner and more sheeny shiny hotels, the warm welcome, exceptional room views and wonderful restaurant here...

When my hosts suggested that I stay at the YMCA in Jerusalem I thought they were joking. However, a little research here on TripAdvisor caused me decide to stay here instead of at a big chain hotel, and this was the best decision I made regarding my four day visit to Jerusalem. Be prepared for an atmosphere that is more...

Good price, good food, good staff in a beautiful building. Located new Old Jerusalem in an interesting part of the city. Dining on the terrace at any time of day is a treat. The breakfast buffet is amazing!

I stayed at this hotel with my Mum for 4 nights in October. The exterior of the building & reception areas are beautiful and are one of the main highlights of the hotel. Sitting on the outdoors terrace for breakfast every morning was a particular highlight for us. Location-wise, it is in a good location. The nearest stop for the...

This is very likely the most beautiful YMCA in the world. The hotel is lovely, breakfast is delicious and the ENTIRE staff is gracious, efficient, and kind. There is free wifi, a gym, a charming outdoor patio and a view of Jerusalem from the building's tower. The hotel is an international crossroads where hospitality, generosity, and goodwill prevail. It is...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The YMCA Three Arches Hotel, with its 152 ft high central bell tower, is a Jerusalem landmark recognized the world over. Designed by the world famous architect of the Empire State Building, the hotel offers a blend of old world charm, friendly hospitality, art works and architectural wonders, together with modern, comfortable accommodations to ensure a pleasant and memorable stay in this remarkable city. The external facade of the hotel bears intricate sculptures and inscriptions in English, Arabic and Hebrew reflecting the YMCA's historical role as a meeting place and a spiritual haven in this intense and ancient city. The beautiful gardens and lawns, graceful shade trees, and stone pathways around the hotel are open for our guests' strolling pleasure. The hotel's public areas feature high-ceiling halls and walls often lined with colorful modern works of Israeli and Palestinian artists. The elegant Archibald C. Harte Restaurant restaurant serves culinary delights to our guests, with its garden terrace a delightful oasis in the midst of the city on sunny days and mild evenings. That same sense of tranquility pervades the hotel's rooms and suites, where guests may relax and gather their strength for days of sightseeing or meetings in bustling Jerusalem. The ancient Jaffa Gate, main entrance to the fascinating walled Old City, is just a few minutes' walk away, as are shops, vibrant cafes and restaurants as well as the cultural attractions and night life of the modern metropolis. Three Arches Hotel awaits your arrival, at the very heart of Jerusalem, where peace and quiet reigns, with a pervasive sense of welcome and well-being. ... more   less

“Rooms are either to the front or rear. A road (not busy) passes the front grounds so for extra quietness, ask for a room to the rear.”
