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.

The hotel far and away exceeded out expectations in so many aspects. The beautiful lobby of the hotel takes your breath away! The location is excellent for exploring old Jerusalem-we walked everywhere. The restaurants are very good and the Shabbat dinner and brunch were a big highlight for us.

Beautiful Jerusalem Property The WA Jerusalem is an architectural beauty with an open air feeling with beautiful art work. From reception to check out the staff at the front desk, coincerge,daily breakfast, room service, and housekeeping made our four day stay spectacular. The WA experience in Jerusalem exceeded our expectations delivering on ambiance, service and comfort. The property is located in a prime location with easy access to both Old and new Jerusalem center. Although we were quite busy, just relaxing in the atrium or viewing various art pieces is excellent. Our room featured a great shower and soaking tub as well as AHAVA product. When we arrived, Alessandro, personal coincerge gave us a tour and history of the property which has a great historical past and has recently been totally updated and renovated by WA. Rula and Alyse at the front desk were very helpful. Daniel and Laurian st coincerge will be able to recommend great nearby restaurants. George the lead doorman was most gracious as he always offered a helping hand and bottle of cold water to one of our traveling companions who was on oxygen. Across the street the Mamilla mall has great shopping and directly leads into Old Jerusalem. Staying at the Jerusalem WA will not disappoint. The daily breakfast is Kisher and incredible with a variety of choices. We can not wait to return. Read less
