“YMCA Tower”
Reviewed 25 April 2012

Just across from The King David Hotel, the YMCA Building is an interesting blend of architectures and quite interesting inside. Buy your very inexpensive ticket to go up the Tower and on a nice day, you can see for miles in all directions, with a spectacular view of the Old City.You can have a snack at the cafe inside when you get back to the lobby level. This was not on my "see list but was a very pleasant surprise.

“Good view”
Reviewed 13 February 2012

Good view, though there are many places to get just as good a view or better for free. Try the hill between the Mt Zion Hotel and the no-longer-used Turkish railway station.
