“Fantastic boutique hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 March 2012

Nice little space of luxury and boutique hotel, excellent restaurant and hideaway bar, breakfast also very good and large spread to choose from for every taste. A little expensive but well worth the service and comfort in detail.

Room Tip: Look for the East wing, big bedrooms and bathrooms, heated bathroom floor for winters, large king si...

We spent three days in this hotel and we had really a good time.
The room was over the swimming pool and very quiet (maybe because of winter season).
The bathroom was spacious.
The atmosphere of the hotel is very nice since is not a big anonymous hotel, but really a charming hotel.
The breakfast was good as well as the dinner (we had dinner one evening in the hotel), but the dinner was a little bit expensive.
The location of the hotel is really good; we left the car in the parking, since we were walking distance from the old city

I spent three nights at the American Colony in mid February. On checkin I was upgraded to a Deluxe Pasha Suite not more than 50 feet from the hotel entrance. It was very spacious, with a comfortable bed and an enormous bathroom and was very quiet notwithstanding its location. The front desk was extremely helpful in finding ATMs, recommending tours and arranging for taxi drivers. The taxi drivers at the hotel were great for trips to the museums and to Bethlehem (the hotel sets the price for the trip and the price per hour for the trip). The immediate neighborhood around the hotel is not so interesting (no restaurants or shops), so using the taxis was a big part of my stay here (it poured down rain most of this stay so I didn't want to hike to the light rail). The breakfast buffet was well stocked with lots of options for food. Dinner was good although expensive for what it was. It is a nice splurge on a vacation.

I stayed here for 3 night in 2011 during asingle trip to Jerusalem.

The room had the feel of being a home away from home. It had a simple momochrome art deco style and had all features I wanted.

Food service etc was unpretentious and professional.

I will definitely try to stay here if back in the region.
