How many hotels in the world are significant to a given city like the American Colony of Jerusalem, Israel? Probably few, very few. When you walk past the front door of this little (not so little, as you'll discover after you'll have explored the annexes...) palace, you will enter the history of the last two centuries in Jerusalem. A history which you'll feel made of secret talks, agreements, compromises, offerings, requests - by diplomats, officers, spies, businessmen, common people - always in a low voice, while sitting in the shadow of the wonderful courtyard, or in the old rooms belonging to a bygone era. There is of course a lot of romance in it, but it feels pleasant, understated, relaxed...
Wonderful. And costly as well, but worth the price. The rooms of the old building are somehow dusty, nicely (if you like the taste) furnished, wide with lots of flavour. The rooms of the new building are certainly less intriguing, although very comfortable. The restaurant ranks among the best in town, and you'll not be disappointed by the quality of the food. The service is sloooow, and the waiters could easily be a bit more friendly.
