Mamila Hotel Jerusalem

Recommended Hotels in Jerusalem

Israel’s hotels are on par with other Western countries. The most common criticism you’ll hear is the price. Israel isn’t a cheap country and hotel prices are high. If you enjoyed your hotel, but felt it was too expensive – you’re not the only one.

*All my recommendations are based on familiarity with the lodgings, the city, and reviews from the hundreds of travelers I have guided, and as well as recommendations from other tour guides I know and trust. Having said that, it must be taken into account that each travel experience is unique. If you’re in Jerusalem during a rainy period and there’re a bunch of noisy young people in your room and a new and unprofessional receptionist in the lobby, you’ll always remember Jerusalem as an unpleasant place. But it’s important to mention that all of my recommendations are completely objective and unbiased (in other words, none of the places have paid me to appear on this list).

 Luxury Hotels:                            

King David Hotel

23 King David Street (230 rooms, starting at NIS 1,500 per night).
Every city has that one highly reputable hotel. In Jerusalem’s case, it’s the King David Hotel. The rectangular structure and the tall palm trees are part of Jerusalem’s landscape, and the history of the hotel – not all of it pleasant – is in many ways the history of Israel in the 20th century. Since the 1950s, the hotel has hosted heads of state and dignitaries from around the world.

Mamilla Hotel

11 King Solomon Street (190 rooms, starting at NIS 1,300 per night).
Mamilla is located exactly at the boundary of the old and the new city. This luxurious, modern hotel is part of the Mamilla Compound, a pedestrian mall that connects Jaffa Road and Jaffa Gate. The hotel’s roof boasts a beautiful view of the Old City.

 Waldorf Astoria

26 Agron Street (220 rooms, starting at NIS 1,600 per night).
The international luxury hotel chain opened its first hotel in Israel in a beautiful building that used to host one of Jerusalem’s luxury hotels in the 1930s. Later, it served as a British government building (just like the King David Hotel did). After the creation of the state of Israel, the building housed the Ministry of Rationing and Supply during the austerity period. After many years of standing abandoned, the building was restored at great cost and returned to serving its original purpose as a luxury hotel.

Boutique Hotels:
Boutique hotels are smaller than regular hotels, and usually don’t have the large swimming pool or the facilities that the larger hotels have. However, they offer an intimate space with an emphasis on a personal touch and service and tasteful design.

Arthur Hotel

13 Dorot Rishonim Street (50 rooms, starting at NIS 840 per night).

The beautifully designed hotel is located at the Ben Yehuda pedestrian mall (near Jaffa Road), at the center of the city where most of the nightlife takes place. The Old City is a 15-minute walk away.
