“Great Stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 March 2012

I spent three nights at the American Colony in mid February. On checkin I was upgraded to a Deluxe Pasha Suite not more than 50 feet from the hotel entrance. It was very spacious, with a comfortable bed and an enormous bathroom and was very quiet notwithstanding its location. The front desk was extremely helpful in finding ATMs, recommending tours and arranging for taxi drivers. The taxi drivers at the hotel were great for trips to the museums and to Bethlehem (the hotel sets the price for the trip and the price per hour for the trip). The immediate neighborhood around the hotel is not so interesting (no restaurants or shops), so using the taxis was a big part of my stay here (it poured down rain most of this stay so I didn't want to hike to the light rail). The breakfast buffet was well stocked with lots of options for food. Dinner was good although expensive for what it was. It is a nice splurge on a vacation.

We stayed at American Colony in july-011 . Service were excellent - we were 18 hours delayed. but still picked up at the airport.

Rooms were oki - but at the most 3 stars, Atmosphere and food at this famous hotel definetely 5 star. Pool area, garden bar and location of American Colony is superb.

We will most definetely be back !!

I stayed here for 3 night in 2011 during asingle trip to Jerusalem.

The room had the feel of being a home away from home. It had a simple momochrome art deco style and had all features I wanted.

Food service etc was unpretentious and professional.

I will definitely try to stay here if back in the region.

As you step in, you feel like you're in another country, if not another world. Ancient charm surrounds you with luxury and tranquility.
We had a penthouse suite at the east house. It was one of the most beautiful hotel rooms I ever stayed in. Spacious with a huge pampering bathroom. The kind of place you don't want to leave. Hotel staff was polite and responsive. The bar is great.
It is within short distance from the old city, although for those who know Jerusalem – there is no reason to go anywhere beyond the cool bar. What a perfect romantic weekend!

We booked this hotel using United Frequent Flyer miles. It was pricey but using miles softened the blow. Breakfasts had enough quantity and quality to get us through the whole day with little more than some snacks. We ate at the cafe in the evenings, so can't comment on the restaurant. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Room was great and had a very larger bathroom and shower. Overall a great experience.

Room Tip: WE were in a higher floor room which provides somewhat of a view.
