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.

If you are counting on a lounge for Hilton Gold and Platinum this is not the place for You. Coffee and light meals which would be lounge offerings are expensive In addition if you book more than 3 nights through FHR American Express , even , if upgrade is available you won't get it without paying . AT least that is how it was explained to me by my personal concierge. I have yet to verify that with American Express On the upside the room we paid for is ,what we got and it was nice The food although expensive was delicious and the location is Excellent The minuses are No lounge No real gym, only a few treadmills in converted guest room, no spa It is a nice hotel but not quite a Waldorf There is supposed to be a spa and gym eventually Read less

The stay was great! The service was truly top notch, including an out of this world breakfast. We always love staying at the Waldorf Jerusalem, where the location is great, and we just enjoy everything about the hotel. One problem we did experience on this trip was that there was not hot water in our bathroom. The most we could get out of the faucet was lukewarm. Not sure why that is, and we were too tired to try to change the room. Other than that we loved our stay and look forward to coming back in the future. Read less

Had a delightful stay at the Waldorf-Astoria. The staff there was very friendly and helped us in many ways. The tour they arranged for us to Bethlehem was superb -- the driver, the local guide and itinerary. Our room was outstanding with a nice view, very comfortable bed and luxury bathroom. Couldn't have been better.

Great stay at the Waldorf. Rooms are beautifully furnished, and all amenities provided. Bed and linnens are very comfortable. Breakfast was delicious, and service great. The location, right outside the old city walls is perfect.
