Jerusalem Tours and Travels
As one of the oldest cities in the world and considered holy by the three religions of Judaism, Christianity and Islam, the beauty and 3000-year history of Jerusalem is guaranteed to leave you speechless. The picturesque Old City is a mesmerising place to explore, with a maze of alleys, busy bazaars, remarkably well-preserved architecture, numerous holy sites and the famous Western Wall, also known as the Wailing Wall. To witness elderly local men and women as they press pieces of paper with prayers into this ancient wall and to hear their wailing is something quite unforgettable, especially when you realise the sheer numbers of prayer papers stuffed into every nook and cranny.Read More

If you are planning a Jerusalem holiday, have a look at some of the accommodation that we recommend. 'Our Rating' indicates how we feel each property rates according to normal Western hotel standards. 'Local Rating' indicates how the property is categorised/rated locally:
American Colony Hotel Jerusalem
Characterised by classic Arabian arches and elaborate furnishings, the American Colony is an elegant boutique hotel where timeless style meets contemporary facilities to provide its guests with an extraordinary experience. From the classic standard rooms to the palatial No 6 suite - all rooms are designed and maintained with exceptional care and attention. Meals are served in a number of bars and restaurants - our favourite being the Cellar Bar in the hotel's former Dairy - well worth a visit. Situated in east Jerusalem, the hotel is within walking distance of some of Jerusalem's major sights.
Dan Boutique Jerusalem
Bringing a youthful, cool ambiance to Jerusalem, the Dan Boutique hotel is a true designer hotel with an intimate identity. Guest rooms are superbly designed with very stylish interiors, classic wooden furniture and marble bathrooms. Meals are served Israeli buffet style in the Dining Room and the hotel's lobby bar serves delicious cocktails and other beverages to enjoy in the lobby or courtyard - a great place to relax in the evening. Located in the south of Jerusalem, the property is just a short drive from the Western Wall and the Dome on the Rock.
