Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

The American Colony hotel in Jerusalem is an Excelente Hotel, beautifull and charming with the best and friendly staff. I´ve been there 19 days and i loved. From the lobby to the bar and the dinner room the staff are, all, fantastic. The 'Chef' is on of the best Chefs i ever meet. The history of the Hotel is amazing, go and ask to see the archive and make a Tour by the Hotel. Great!!!

I have stayed in, and worked from, the American Colony for many long periods over the last 3 decades. It has only improved its already high standards of hospitality and professionalism, and it always feels like coming home for me. This trip was no different, and simply confirmed that it remains one of the best hotels in the world. The genuine warmth of the staff and management always amazes me, as does the food. There is no place like it anywhere, and Guy and his team have propelled it to new heights. I hope to see them all again soon.

Outstanding setting. Delicious cuisine. Enchanting gardens. A haven of peace. But it is the kindness and attention of the entire staff that makes the American Colony a home away from home, sometimes even better than home.

Rarely do I get to experience the hospitality that is on offer at the American Colony, it is a beautiful oasis and escape from the bustle of Jerusalem, a place of calm and sanctuary that takes pride in its hospitality, service and facilities.

Firstly, the hotel is really quite a fabulous historical building. The Courtyard restaurant and breakfast area is simply absolutely lovely so much so that it's almost a shame to stop eating. The staff are polite and never pass you without wishing you a good morning/evening (often lacking in some premier hotels). They also check the rooms both in the morning and the afternoon. They make sure you are not missing anything or need anything. Simply lovely professionals who could write the bible on good service. I will not bang on about the great rooms, sheets, toiletries, free room bar as well as real coffee, tea, bottled water et cetera. I must however mention the English Cake that they make on site which is heaven on earth. If I was to criticise anything it would be the teabags (I always bring my own anyway) and powdered milk but to do so with all the other positives would be bordering on madness.

The property is stunning with an old world feel. Staff is very helpful, food nicely prepared. Our room was small, buy the balcony with table and chairs was a nice feature. Conveniently located near the Old City and light rail.

The American Colony Hotel is an oasis of calm in Jerusalem. The hotel feels luxe without being too formal. Our room was comfortable and had a lovely balcony overlooking the complex. The hotel gardens are beautiful, and they grow their own herbs and vegetables for the restaurant. The food was delicious, and the breakfast buffet was very extensive. We were at the hotel when the Hamas attack occured, and the hotel took very good care of us, and made us feel safe despite the circumstances. We walked from the hotel to the old city, it took about 15 minutes to reach the nearest gate. At night it probably would be best to take a taxi.
