About the Three Arches Hotel
Located in the 80-year-old Jerusalem International YMCA building right across the street from the King David Hotel, the Three Arches Hotel offers European style with a Middle Eastern feel along with a top-notch, central location and 3-star, affordable rates.

The western Jerusalem YMCA complex, widely considered one of the most beautiful in the world, was designed by the architect who also designed New York City's Empire State Building. The YMCA's famous observation tower provides a largely unmatched, full-scale panoramic view of Jerusalem.
Rooms sleep up to three, and include single, doubles, triples, or suites. They are all A/C equipped and include cable TV, a safe, and maid service daily. The YMCA activities and ambiance are one of peace promotion between Jews and Arabs; likewise, a Jewish-Arab kindergarten runs on the premises.

The complex is home also to the Three Arches Restaurant, offering international cuisine, and open every day of the week.
