We stayed for three nights in this hotel. The rooms were adequate and basic. The bathrooms were small with below average towels, etc. The bathroom could also use a good scrub in the corners. The beds, however, were clean and very comfortable. When we were in Jerusalem the weather was warming up and it was great to be able to...

Great location, Great Staff, but for the price it was a below average hotel. Rooms basic, old, dirty. Room service poor. No air conditioning. However its a really good location 5 mins from old city Jaffa Gate. The staff are really friendly and helpful. However if you have a gluten allergy they won't understand. I picked the hotel for the...

I stayed here for a week recently and would return again if in Jerusalem. As others have said, the location is fantastic for visiting the old city and the buffet breakfast is fabulous. I had written ahead to ask for gluten free bread and every morning a smiling chef whipped a roll out of the freezer and heated it up...

This was my second time staying here. I know this is a hotel and there are many things to expect from a hotel besides just location. . This hotel stands out as regards its excellent location. In addition the common areas, patio , lobby and sitting room are beautiful. I found all the staff to be excellent. I also valued...

I spent 5 nights in this YMCA. It was my second stay there, the first one was 15 years ago. At that time I had really appreciated being there. This time, I felt relieved when I left. The situation and the building are great. The rooms are not at all. Except for the sheets and towels which were clean, everything...

Don't be fooled by the name YMCA, this is most definitely not a youth hostel and is in fact an iconic hotel right in the centre of Jerusalem just a ten minute walk away from the Old City. The building itself is worth visiting as a tourist and the tower offers superb views of the city. The rooms were comfortable...

stayed here for two nights. The building has a great old look about it, with décor to match in the lobby area. The staff were quite friendly, breakfast was ok & the onsite café was quite good. The view from the tower is also quite amazing. Unfortunately that is where the good stuff stops. Even though it's a YMCA the...

The YMCA, and especially concierge Rabie, were terrific. This is NOT an American-style "Y" but rather beautiful architecture, full service hotel that offers great value and location. Take the elevator to the top of the tower for 360 degree view of Jerusalem. My only complaint is that the bathroom sometimes had a vague smell of urine despite management's immediately, twice...

Relax on the terrace of the YMCA after a long, hot, noisy day walking the Old City, sitting in the shade, sipping a cool drink and wiping your plate clean of delicious hummus with a piece of pita bread whilst the water from the fountain bubbles next to you. There are certain, rare places in the world that emanate peace...

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

“The old elevator is small and often busy, so I used the stairs and got to my room much quicker.”

“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.”
