Relaxing Stay.

Posted Mar 15, 2015
Pros: The staff are excellent - attentive without being overbearing. The hotel ambiance is very pleasant without being stuffy. Beautiful courtyard garden.
Cons: Perhaps the menu could be improved a little - only basic pasta for vegetarians.
Location: The location is historic rather than attractive. Not too far from Damascus Gate. Worth the walk.
Had a wonderful relaxing stay here at the end of our trip. We really enjoyed our room - with its very comfortable bed and spacious proportions. We spent two pleasant evenings in the bar/brasserie.

Very nice hotel with grat history. Very helpful staf. Great historical atmosphere. Nice poolside. Good food and brekfast. I recommed warmly. A new hotel can't give such experience as this old hotel with its history.

Dejligt historisk hotel tæt på det gamle jerusalem

Posted Oct 20, 2014 on Hotels.com
Vi boede 3 dage på hotellet. 4 voksne. Virkelig skønt sted, med sin helt egen rolige atmosfære. Personalet meget behageligt og serviceorienteret. Vi bestilte via hotellet guidet tur i Jerusalem samt tur til det døde hav, jeriko og massada.virlkelig god guide. Alt i alt en stor oplevelse, som vi klart kan anbefale.

En unik oase.............

Posted Oct 10, 2014 on Hotels.com
I en hektisk og fantastisk by er American Colony en perfekt oase for å finne nye krefter til spennende opplevelser til fots i byen. Sjarmerende, rolig, høyt servicenivå, god mat og mye velvære i avslappende omgivelser. Verdt hver krone!

Fin miljö

Fantastiskt hotell där Selma Lagerlöf, Winston Churchill och Carl Bildt har bott.Restaurangen är bra och kan rekommenderas för den som inte vill gå ut på kvällen.

Excellent Hotel and experience of Jerusalem

Posted Sep 24, 2014 on Hotels.com
Over all stay was fantastic- the hotel management changed within the last year or two for the better. Some of the older staff are no longer there and that is my only negative comment. The mix off older and younger workers provides a solid service balance and a certain cache of style to the hotel. This hotel and its history deserve that. The workers at the hotel are excellent overall - so the comment is not about the workers themselves.

A classical, traditional hotel

Posted Sep 18, 2014
Pros: Very comfortable and cosy with a very relaxing pool area and good gym facilities. The garden restauarant/ bar was excellent.
Cons: Provision of tea-making facilities in the room.
Location: The hotel is within walking distance of the Old City and convenient for the light rail and buses.
The American Colony has lots of character and an interesting history. The staff were friendly and the food was excellent. Only a couple of minor negatives: no tea-making facilities in the room, and the closeness of the local minaret which meant that it was a bit loud at the calls to prayer.

A landmark , charming and with soul but dated

Posted Aug 27, 2014
Charming hotel but dated, it urgently needs renovation. Facilities are from the eighties. Room was very comfortable and big, very clean and spacious with view to the pool and the a part of the city. The hotel is not in the centre but is not far neither. Not many places where to go out in the sorroundings. The staff? Needs improvement, not an excellent service although Sammi the Manager was responsive and attentive. The food is priced for what you receive. Breakfast is great, lot of variety. Decoration and infrastructure is not always consistent. The gardens are truly oasis, the outdoors bar is very nice and with friedky ambience.
