Following my brother's wedding, the family members decided to stay a couple of days in Jerusalem. Originally they planed to be at the Dan Boutique hotel, and even got rooms facing the Old City, but I convince them to try the Mount Zion hotel instead, where I have stayed before. As this was off season and mid week, we were able to get three suites, which were very reasonably priced.
I was given room 717, which felt like staying in a Moroccan palace. The room was located near the small museum at the top floor of in the northern part of the hotel. The building, erected100 years ago, was actually higher than the rest of the hotel. My suite had three rooms – a lovely large sitting room facing the Old City walls, David's citadel, the old windmill and the King David Hotel. The bedroom had a lovely domed ceiling, and the bathroom had a beautiful Jacuzzi, a shower with a stone bench, as well as two ornate sinks.
The bathroom windows were frosted but there were no shutters so that the sun came in early in the morning – I closed the bedrooms doors so the light would not wake us up.
My family, which stayed at the lower rooms of the old building, also got amazing room (numberes 714 and 715) – both were very quite, with balconies facing the Old City and Mount Zion.
We really enjoyed the breakfast buffet, which was better on the weekdays then it was on the weekend - more warm dishes, many salads, great cheese, freshly squeezed juices, and interesting jams (such as aubergines and carrots).
The visit was perfect and the staff was kind, courteous and assisting our every need.
To sum up – staying at this hotel I felt like a Moroccan royalty.
