Waldorf Astoria Jerusalem

Jerusalem, Israel

The hotel

As well as the superb service, snazzy décor and tasteful touches you’d expect from a Waldorf Astoria, you may just agree that this hotel tops them all. It’s historic and classy. It’s timeless and relaxed. And even though you may be keen to explore the Old City and all that’s happening just outside, why not grab a fresh coffee first and take in its loveliness from the glass-roofed atrium. If you’re feeling peckish, the food is inspired, from huge breakfast buffets to tasty afternoon teas. In summer, head up to the leafy rooftop garden for al fresco tapas – the views from up here are something else.

This is the third time I've stayed at this hotel. They are very welcoming & helpful. The room was very nicely decorated and clean. The hotel-provided toiletries are the Ahava brand, which is a mark of quality. This Waldorf Astoria is a great location; an easy walk to the Old City.

The breakfast was excellent - best eggs benedict ever. The digital lifts were fun and convenient. Room and bathroom were well appointed We liked the bottle of water in the room and the newspapers. We felt for the price we might have had some fruit or chocolate/biscuits in the room. The digital lighting was a tad difficult for us oldies as it entailed getting out our glasses each time to read the labels. We were glad there was a switch for one of the night lights but it wasn't super easy to reach. We found it a bit odd that neither the bathroom, nor the toilet which was in a cubicle inside the bathroom, could be locked. Perhaps we are old-fashioned. Read less

Great location right outside of the jaffe gate/shopping area. The included breakfast was hands down the very best we have had anywhere in the world. After we left this hotel we wish we had even more time there. One of the better hotels overall we have stayed in. Had one hiccup upon checking out where they didn’t apply our $50 daily credit with the package we booked so that took some extra time to sort out but they were kind and helpful. Read less

The Waldorf masters comfort and services. Everything is well thought of and organize. The staff is discret and efficient. In addition the location so close from the old city is perfect for visits. We highly recommend this hotel

The service at was kind and professional, the room was clean and wonderful. We had a room with a terrace which was lovely and had a Nespresso coffee machine and a kettle for tea. The room has two televisions, one of them in the bathroom on the mirror! And the hotel offers a good variety of TV channels and free movies. Breakfast was delicious and at check out they were so kind to offer us water bottles for the way home. Although we spent only one night, it felt like a long vacation :) Read less
