The Waldorf Astoria Jerusalem is a beautiful, luxurious hotel in the city of Jerusalem. It is a great way to enjoy the luxury of Jerusalem while enjoying enviable service at the Waldorf Astoria Jerusalem. Designed in a quietly elegant, late 1920s style, this hotel stands 10-floors high at the intersection of King David, Agron and Mamilla Streets, mere minutes from the Jaffa Gate.
The Waldorf Astoria has retained the facade of the beautiful Palace hotel, which previously stood on the site. The hotel is designed around an “inner courtyard” of pale Jerusalem stone, which can be opened to the air. Vases of orchids and glass sculptures dot the lobby, along with the signature grandfather clock, which features in Waldorf Astoria hotels around the world. Spin and take in the stunning open-space atrium. Climb the grand staircase and escape to one of 226 luxury guest rooms or suites. The rooms are quiet and the beds are spectacularly comfortable.
The luxurious bathrooms have televisions concealed in the mirrors, which means you can catch up on your favourite programmes from the enormous free-standing bath. The rooms have iPod docks for both four and five designs, along with Nespresso machines.
Delicious Mediterranean cuisine in sophisticated surroundings is the order of the day with a choice of two restaurants.
From the doorman who remembers your name to the smiling concierges, the staff are impeccably trained. They are also keen to explain some of Jerusalem’s extraordinary and fascinating history – and advise which sites to visit when.
For example, Temple Mount – featuring the mosque that dominates the Old City – can only be visited by tourists at certain times of the day, so the staff will help you plan your visit.
Other first-rate amenities include: classic courtyard; 2 fine dining establishments, personal tablet received upon check-in for checking emails and calling room service; fitness center and spa (opening Q4 2017).
