This was my first trip to Israel and my work booked me into the American Colony which initially sounded a little odd. What a revelation when I got here. It is a beautiful complex of cool shady courtyards and gardens in which sit a number of pink stone old houses. The room was large with walk-in shower, sunken bath, sitting area, balcony and a vast bed. Breakfast served on my balcony was a real treat.
Meals were a little pricey but served amongst palms with a balmy warm breeze blowing. Being Jerusalem there is an emergency shelter in the basement and throughout its long history it has seen some war action at times but it is worth visiting just to learn about this great hotel. I hope to be back here in ten days after spending time in Gaza. The emotion of this hotel has touched me deeply. 10/10
