YMCA is really Jerusalem's best kept secret. Such a great place to see and visit! Good for a day pass for swimmers, for lunch or photo opportunity from the top of its famous tower. Remarkable historical building.

The rental car person suggested the Y for lunch where we had a very good sandwich and salad. Good choice. They also have a tower where you can pay to take the elevator up and get a view of the city form all 4 directions.

If you have time and would like to spend some time knowing more about the modern jerusalem during the 1930/40s then you have to visit this place. From the highest point of the tower you can have a perfect view overlooking the old city but...More

If you enjoy swimming as exercise then come to this historic pool built in 1926. Do be sure to review the times and days for swim times because not all time slots are available for all genders. The pool water is warm and it is...More

Arrival to the YMCA is awe inspiring. The building and grounds are spectacular. The rooms are clean and well maintained as the primary income for the property is sponsored by the room revenue. The location is key - about 10 minutes walk to the Mamilla...More

The Jerusalem Y is a beautiful and historic setting for a great meal at the restaurant. Solid and good food, pleasant staff and just an amazing ambiance. Location is great as it's close to the old city and very central

We had dinner with some friends and business meeting there. Had a chance to walk around the Lobby, and see the inside, which is gorgeous. The food was middle eastern and authentic. Good portions and tasty. The background music was a bit loud.

This YMCA is a lot more than an athletic club for men! It houses an inter-faith preschool, an auditorium for community events and a lot more. But most of all it is a modestly priced HOTEL and a fine RESTAURANT. The architecture and interior lobby...More

Unfortunately this amazing structure has had better days and needs millions to renovate to bring it up to standards expected by the best location in town across the road from King David Hotel. Everything is run down, nothing worse than the weight rooms and the...More
