History and magical boutique atmosphere at the American Colony Hotel

American Colony Hotel is a 5-star luxurious facility with a long-standing history of 120 years. It is proud to be considered one of the best and most admired hotels in Israel and the world – and it is a recommended place to stay in Jerusalem. The main building of the hotel was built back in 1860 as a palace of the local Pasha and starting from 1902 it was used for hosting pilgrims from abroad. As the years passed, the American Colony became wildly popular thanks to its ancient and authentic atmosphere and exquisite hospitality. The hotel offers even a unique archive\museum where you'll be able to take a look and get familiar with its rich history. The location of the hotel is in a short walking distance from the Old City and near the Light Rail station. It will assist your traveling around the city and get you to all of the exciting sites, attractions, restaurants, shopping centers, and nightlife areas.

Luxurious experience

In American Colony Hotel you'll find a fantastic compound consisted of 92 rooms and suites, spread over four buildings connected by blooming gardens. The buildings reflect the spirit of the Ottoman architecture most accurately, with stone structures, impressive arches, large window, authentic furniture, and hand-crafted rags. Interested in dining in a fine restaurant? On the hotel grounds, you may enjoy the "Arabesque" - the hotel's dining room that serves a vibrant, fantastic breakfast and diners based on local Arab cuisine. In the "Patio" restaurant you'll have the opportunity to eat under the open sky and enjoy great breakfast and rich menu starting from noon that varies according to the seasons. The "Val's Brasserieis" is open during the winter and offers a heart-warming fireplace and serves international dishes with sprinkles of the local cuisine. The party-animals will be happy to discover the "Cellar Bar" that serves a rich menu of drinks, wines, and beers in an intimate atmosphere with background music for your enjoyment. The bar is available during winter season only, and during the summer, it bursts outside and relocates to one of the hotels' gardens – the "Summer Garden." Here you'll be pampered with plenty of food, from barbecue to pizzas baked in the local taboon and of course – plenty of alcohol. Aside from the fantastic rooms and the restaurants of the hotel itself, you may enjoy 24/7 room service, business center, meeting and banquet halls, advanced gym, sauna, massage room, seasonal outdoor pool (from May to October), free Wi-Fi, free parking for the guests, shops and daily newspapers in English.
