    Superb

    The American Colony hotel is essential to any itinerary of a visitor to Israel. Located on the "seam line" , this oasis of peace and beauty demonstrates how an ideal can actually be achieved. Breakfast or afternoon tea in the courtyard, barbeque in the gardens, or a day by the pool, can restore one's soul. The rooms are spacious and well maintained; simply but adequate furnishings.The staff are courteous, helpful and multilingual, The cuisine is not as outstanding as it was years ago. The best food is now served in the barbeque garden. Don't miss the wonderful bookshop and antique store.

    Superb

    Beautiful hotel, historical place, professionalism of staff. also romantic as long as you have a quiet room

    The unwillingness of the front desk to offer a concession after we were unable to rest due to the cooridor in front of our room being used fora very noisy way station for food and trolleys.

    Excellent service, close to old city, comfortable rooms, great breakfast, free wifi..

    Overpriced (rooms weren't quite as spectacular as you'd expect for the price)

    Fabulous

    All the comfort you expect from a luxury hotel (or almost) combined with the charm of an historical building. Convenient location within walking distance from the old city (10minutes), wonderful patio / garden. Swimming pool seems to be nice, but was closed during my stay (in March). Rooms are nicely furnished with typical furniture and accessories. Breakfast with huge choice of European, American and local (less) product. Staff friendly and helpful. Good WiFi in all public areas in the main building, business center with printer etc.

    I had a small room in an annex building, which was nice, but rather noisy, there was a sort of night club or bar (?) with arab music late at night and traffic and car radios early in the morning, all could be heared even with closed window. I had dinner at the hotel once and was rather disappointed, the kitchen is rather french/italian than local, good quality but nothing special, slightly stiff atmosphere and service and all this for a high price compared to local standards. There are better dining options in Jerusalem! Would have preferred to have more local products at breakfast as well (I do not come to Israel to have a "Selection of International Cheese", they have so good products there! WiFi did not work well in my room.

    Superb

    It provided everything that I needed for my business trip including a very comfortable room with complimentary and effective wi-fi. I also made good use of the gym, though the out-door pool was not open in winter. It was so nice to stay in an hotel with real character and some history also - not just another modern clone.

    All of the staff were very nice.The history and architecture of the hotel creates a fabulous ambience. I especially enjoyed the morning buffet in the courtyard. I did not want to leave.

    Most important for me is the fact that this hotel is an oasis of tolerance and I love its rich and amazing history. The atmosphere is lovely and peaceful, quietly respectful of the guests. The staff was kind and wonderful at all times. The pool was a delight as well with its warm water, even when the air got chilly. The bookstore linked to the hotel is also a treasure for book-lovers like myself. It has an excellent selection of titles. Thank you American Colony and keep the good work up! I do hope to be back soon.

    There was nothing I did not like. I would just have appreciated a small water-boiler in my room, but that is really a detail.

    Superb

    The nicest hotel in this country probably. People there efficient and very nice. The gardens are magnificient, the swimming pool very nice and the atmosphere makes you want to stay whole day at the hotel and not visit the city! The food at the restaurant was very good and the breakfast is gorgeous. Free wifi is an advantage and that's not always the case in leading hotels.

    There should be a tea/coffee spot in the room. Of course you can get any tea/coffee from room service but sometime you don't want to phone, to wait and to pay just for hot water.

    Good

    The history. the old en days' elegance, the very nice Presidential room (pricy, but you can haggle the price down to around 50%) The relaxed breakfast in the lovely patio garden.

    The old/antique furniture looks very cool, but functions badly. Cupboard doors difficult to open and close, squeaky hinges, hard to move drawers, etc. Many ants on bathroom floor. All three days of our stay. silly flasks for shampoo, shower gel, etc. very hard to get anything out of them. Shouldn't be like that. BUT: having seen the staff's attitude, there is good hope that they will fix most or all these issues now that they know about them.
