The American Colony is a beautiful and elegant oasis amidst the crowds of Jerusalem. The rooms, courtyard and gardens are lovely, and the staff, Alaa in particular, took such special care of us. I have traveled all over the world, and the American colony stands out as one of the finest hotels. I highly recommend this hotel.
