Wow wow wow
My experience at the American Colony Hotel was amazing from start to finish. The staff is impeccably kind, knowledgeable, and helpful - the best I have witnessed in Israel and I have traveled the country from nearly every corner. This includes front desk, restaurant, breakfast, and cleaning staff.
The rooms were amazing, beds are comfortable, and the bathrooms... let's just say I want to steal that bathroom and bring it home!
The pool was great - beautiful, great temperature, good location, great staff (again!).
I recommend this place.
An amazing experience
One of the best super luxury hotels in the world.
The ancient history and architecture of the hotel is brilliant and magical.
The hotel has had world's leading celebrities and head of states who have stayed at the hotel.
Words cannot describe the beauty and aura surrounding the space.
The suites are large and furniture and interior ambiance had a wonderful old world charm.
It's dining restaurant, the cellar bar, open courtyard, swimming pool spaces are exquisite and experiential.
This is a top notch hotel, with amazing decor and full of history. Magnificent garden and decoration of the finest quality. Our room was spacious, classy and quiet. We liked the little attentions offered every day (fruits & sweets). The breakfast buffet was delicious and very varied. All products are perfectly cooked and fresh. We spent two evenings in their cellar bar had great drinks and good food as well. The gym is perfect with the best equipment and even instructions how to use it. As for the staff, they made us feel special and were professional, friendly and so kind. This stay was like a dream, it remains one of the best souvenirs we've had from our ten days holidays around Israel.
One of the Best
The American Colony is one of the best hotels in which we have stayed during many years of travel—and we have stayed in some of the world’s best hotels. It is more than just nice accommodations—it has charm, coziness, great food, friendly service and the hotel’s clientele seem like family. We wouldn’t stay in any other hotel in Jerusalem.
Best hotel in Jerusalem
Have stayed at other excellent hotels in Jerusalem, but American Colony is in a class by itself. Staff is professional and kind, wonderful people. Hotel is beautiful and quiet. Now a must stay for me when visiting Israel.
