                              There was nothing I didn't like. I have been to this hotel several times before and I would go back again without hesitation. It is my favorite hotel in Jerusalem. The staff are expert and beyond reproach, the facility is an oasis within a busy city, and the accommodation and food are top notch!

                              The bed and cleaness of the room, the gardens were also very nice.

                              The service was awful, we have stayed at many upmarket hotels and for the price we expexted better service. We booked dinner but they had no reservation when we arrived, the table was wobbly and we had to ask 4 times for it to be fixed - they didnt even realise we were staying in the hotel and the food was awful. The staff on the front desk were rude and tried to upsell a bigger room for a "good price" - it made the whole experience tacky and we felt we were being pushed. If it was not for the bad service we probably would have stayed a few more days.

                              There is immediately a feeling of relaxartion when you enter the hotel. The staff are attentive and the service is excellent . Breakfast and lunch in the courtyard is an exceptional experience . I would not hesitate to recommend the hotel .

                              Stayed at the hotel twice during my visit to Isreal. Excellent service, accommodation, location and food.

                              My wife and I liked the first class service.The best hotel I've experienced in the Holy Land!

                              Only one thing. The hotel should have an ATM! Although they are prepared to give one cash from one's Visa card, they will only do it for a 10 per cent commission, which is grossly excessive! There are of course other ATMS in Jerusalem, but we found that many of them were either not functioning properly or would not give more than 400 shekels or were not for use by foreigners.

                              The hotel was an oasis of calm in a troubled city. It had a great cosmopolitan aura with a huge history and this lives on in the large number of business people and diplomats who use the hotel as well as the large number of travellers who are visiting Jerusalem and the Holy Land. The calm in the courtyard was astonishing and the total calm, tolerance and well-being could not be better epitomised than by the way the staff treat the large numbers of birds that live in the courtyard.

                              The staff was very courteous and accommodating. We felt welcomed and our request to have the children in our rooms granted. The rooms were lovely, beautifully decorated with a nice view. We use the pool as well, it was very nice. The hotel was within walking distance to the Old Jerusalem in a nice and private neighborhood. We felt safe and enjoyed our stay tremendously. We would go back to Amrecican Colony on our next visit for sure and would recommend it to our family and friends who are interested.

                              The open courtyard and breakfast

                              The hotel did not want to honor the room rate posted on Booked.net. There is a lack of clarity in the room description on the hotel website and Booked.net. Standard versus Superior is not explained and should be with a very clear understanding as to how many people can fit in a room.

                              All the amenities. The staff were very obliging and very well trained. Food was good and the rooms and decor very elegant. The hotel has a special quality and the historical element is attractive and very evident. The pool is wonderful and relaxing. The hotel is in a special class however it is very comfortable and welcoming for the "ordinary" guest. thankyou for a great and memorable stay.

                              The gardens were beautiful. Loved the architecture and history. It was like an oasis in the desert.

                              We actually decided to upgrade our room to a suite. Our room faced the muslim prayer tower. I did not mind hearing this throughout the day, but at 6 a.m. it was quite the wake-up call. Also, we read that the breakfasts here were out of this world, when in fact out of the 5 hotels we stayed in during our visit to Israel, it would probably be rated 2nd to last.

                              uncomfortable walk to the old city. While it was only a 15 minute walk, it was difficult and sometimes dangerous with children

                              The American Colony was truly an oasis of calm and elegance amidst the cultural bustle of Jerusalem. An extraordinary breakfast buffet with an impressive array of choices, including delicious local cuisine. Immaculate rooms, attention to comfort, with unique interior features. Beautiful grounds and gardens, and an exquisite central courtyard. 24/7 convenience in the business center, including four computer stations for ease in communicating with home or business. No question, any future trips to Jerusalem would include a stay here again.

                              the staff were very good and helpful. the breakfast was very good and delicious, lots of fresh fruit and cooked food too. The restaurants were quite expensive but very good food. The garden looked nice but it was wrong time of year andtoo cold to go out there, same with the swimming pool. We very much enjoyed reading about and seeing pictures of the Christian heritage of the hotel and the history of it. There was a lovely cellar bar which we enjoyed.

                              Architecture of the hotel, terrasses, internal yard. Also very calm. Staff very friendly.

                              Not really a 5 Star hotel (rather 4 or 4+), although it is satisfactory in many aspects.
