Hotels in Jerusalem

Hotels in Jerusalem provide Middle East luxury in a locale nicknamed “The Holy City”. Perhaps the most historically significant, holiest and most fought-after city anywhere, Jerusalem was once considered the center of the world, and is known for its synagogues, churches, mosques, tunnels, markets and museums. Located in Jerusalem’s central-eastern section, Old City is home to many ancient and holy sites such as Western Wall, Dome of the Rock and the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, which was built nearly 2,000 years ago. When traveling to Jerusalem, keep in mind that you should wear modest clothing especially in religious areas, that you may be questioned more than usual at the airport and that you should keep your airport paperwork secure and nearby at all times. With so much history and holy energy, it’s easy to see why hotels in Jerusalem are some of the most traveled in the Middle East. Before we get to hotels in Jerusalem, let’s take a look at some more background information on the area to help you along the way.

Originally the City of David circa 1000 BCE, Jerusalem has been inhabited for over 5,000 years. According to Jewish indigeneity to the land and Palestinian modern, though longstanding, presence in the area, both Jewish and Palestinian nationalists claim a right to the city. Jerusalem’s historical periods are extensive and include the Canaanite, the Egyptian New Kingdom, the Roman, the Byzantine, the Crusader and the Ottoman empires, to name a few. A resilient city, Jerusalem has been destroyed at least twice during its existence, and attacked 52 times. The Holy City is the place where Jews branched off from the Canaanite peoples to center their religion on Yahweh, where Jesus Christ was crucified according to the New Testament, and where Muhammad made his Night Journey to heaven according to the Quran.

Home to nearly 1 million people, Jerusalem sits on a plateau between the Mediterranean and Dead Seas. Surrounding the city, which is shared between Israel and the Palestinian Authority, are the Judean Mountains.  Jerusalem has a hot-summer Mediterranean climate, with average high temperatures at about 85 degrees Fahrenheit in August and about 53 degrees Fahrenheit in January. The city’s major points of interest include St. Elijah Monastery, Mamilla Mall, Tower of David, Old City Walls, The Garden Tomb, Temple Mount, al-Aqsa MosqueJaffa Road, Israel Museum, Bible Lands Museum, Rockefeller Museum, Jerusalem Biblical Zoo, International Convention Center and Teddy Stadium. Popular foods include falafel, pita, hummus, bagels, halva, which is a type of sweet candy, shawarma, kanafeh, or a noodle-like pastry dessert and bourekas, also a pastry. Drinks include arak, which is a potent anise-flavored liquor, Tubi 60, a citrus liquor, sachlav, a vanilla and rose water scented creamy drink, frozen mint lemonade called limonana and iced coffee. Now that we have a little background information on the area, it’s time for hotels in Jerusalem that will help make for a memorable experience.

Wow!  Those are some gorgeous pictures.  It makes me want to go to Jerusalem right now!  I love the selection of hotels, especially the Villa Mamilla because an extended vacation with a dining/kitchen area sounds freaking awesome!  Thanks so very much for the various suggestions AND for listing which hotel is closest to which attractions!

  2. Just reading this and looking at the pictures transports me right to Jerusalem!  The city has such a rich and vibrant history that it is one that I have always dreamed of visiting.  I love your choice on penthouse and apartment-style lodgings would be just great for small groups of friends to be able to tour around together (or apart) and still have a central home to come back to at the end of the hot day.  Excellent article!

  3. Wow, this is a very good post with some nice information about some good hotels in the historical city of. Jerusalem.

    I got to admit Jerusalem is a place that I would like to visit, which its beauty and many historical places to have a good look around. You have presented some of the most beautiful hotels that a person would like to stay in.
