where to stay in jerusalem

Luxurious hotels or quiet retreats, city centre apartments or boutique bed and breakfasts… Do you have expectations when you ponder over your accommodation options in Jerusalem? Get them tested.

1. Mamilla Jerusalem Hotel (from USD 423)

Probably one of the best hotels in the world, Mamilla Jerusalem Hotel is famed for its location, staff, and food, but I must say that it impresses first and foremost through its design. The attention to detail, the simplicity of the lines used, and the traditionalism in colors are all amazing traits. Transparency is key here, while the sun deck and the swimming pool are other ultimate strengths of this establishment. Wood and light seem to act as the essentials, in a hotel that charms through its spa, views, and the holiday-vibe rooftop restaurant.

2. Tur Sinai Organic Farm Resort (from USD 274)

You sometimes feel the urge to just escape, don’t you? We all do. Why not do it in style? Amidst an organic orchard, you can’t help but feel the true nature of the area. You will also sleep in style, in rooms that are both large and furnished with eco-friendly elements. You will be welcomed by a basket of cookies, coffee, and the resort’s organic fruit liqueur. A rich and plentiful breakfast is served daily, including cheese, eggs, and salad. This accommodation is only 15 minutes by car from central Jerusalem, yet seemingly a world away.

3. David Citadel Hotel (from USD 383)

An excellent business card – many important names of our current world have stayed here. They know what they know… that is, you cannot beat the view. Or the large swimming pool. Or the many dining facilities – you may choose between Italian and Mediterranean cuisines – all while enjoying stunning views over the Old City. What about the rooms? Well, they are chic and classic, with dashes of electric colors here and there. What else? You may run your workout in the gym and relax afterwards in the hotel’s wonderful spa. Just to get you spoiled a bit.
