In the heart of Jerusalem, the YMCA Three Arches Hotel probably has the best location in town. Opposite the famous King David Hotel, it is a 10-minute walk from the Old City.

National Hotel is in one of Jerusalem's busiest shopping districts, a 5 minute drive from Herod's Gate, an entrance into Jerusalem's Old City. Parking and Wi-Fi are both free.

The Sephardic House is located near the Zion Gate at the entrance to the Jewish Quarter and is within walking distance from all major sights.
Score from 93 reviews Very good
Online reviews gave me the confidence to book this property, as it is located on a small side street and I would have been unlikely to enter as a walk by. The hotel is located on the second and third floors of the building, and the front door is always locked, which gave me a sense of security. The bathroom was very satisfactory with lots of good hot water. A good Middle East experience!
The staff did not provide any information about the breakfast or other useful information so it required some exploration. When I went to check out they required cash as their card machine was not working - which meant a trip to the bank in the mall to withdraw the cash. Next time I would come prepared with cash.
Over looking the Jaffa gate and short walk to the holy sights. We met the owner who I can only describe as a real gentleman and with his family as staff we were treated like royalty. The room was very clean and the breakfast was awesome with a huge range from western breakfast items to an incredible selection of local choices. If Jerusalem is one of your destinations then don't miss this hotel in a one in a million location
Easy walking distance to the Old City Impressive Middle Eastern breakfast Super courteous staff
Makeshift bathroom not my favorite, but fully functional
Location is the best adventage of this hotel. People are super nice and very helpfull. Breakfast is modest and not too sophisticated but it was fine for me.
It was cold in rooms in November :) We had to ask for extra blankets. Heater was working but rooms are very high and it took time to feel warm.The hotel itself is eclectic and may have seem chaotic in interior design but I wasn't there for spending time inside but visit places around the city.
Excellent location with a price that was quite reasonable. Had balcony that faced the gate. Plenty of room for us and our two older children to spread out. Within walking distance of all main points of the old city. Car parking was nearby and reasonably priced.
Bathroom needed some updating with the plumbing but was doable for 2 nights.
Room was ok, but I prefer little bit more modern bathroom.
Location was excellent. Easy to find for those who is new to the old city. Staff were all friendly and helpful. Room was spacious and clean with no frills. Breakfast was good and plenty. I felt home away from home in this hotel!!
Room in the lower level facing the street might be a little bit noisy in the morning but not really a big deal for us.
location; sort of aged classic. a bit worn, but wonderful old time atmosphere. helpful staff
long climb up for old folk.
Location just steps from the Jaffa Gate is ideal. Staff was courteous and VERY helpful. Good mix of guests.
There couldn't be a better location. Staff extremely good and helpful. Room very basic but comfortable. Will stay there again anytime.
Friendly Staff, Good Service & Very Quaint Hotel
Hotel Equipment Storage in Common Areas
Great building with awesome architecture and its own interesting history in the historical centre of Jerusalem! Picturesque imposing and inspiring interior, tasty and multivarious national breakfast, welcoming receptionist and authentic atmosphere.
Excellent location close to the Jaffa gate. Easy access to walk everywhere in the old city but close enough to escape to the modern part for a western style meal. The highlight for me was the light show at the Tower of David museum across the road.
The ever present smell of cigarette smoke which even found it's way into the hotel. The floor area of our room, #7, was 12' x 9' with a ceiling height of 16' so the floor space was small. The biggest negative however was the loud noise from the street below which continued till after midnight and started again two hours before dawn.
Friendliness of staff, location is perfect for sightseeing, security, gate to outer world, mall nearby, meeting point for tours nearby, taxi can drop you off, cosy, comfortable place, a little bit odd but in a sympathic way. If you are not too picky this is perfect. My room was cleaned every day and it's not too loud. An arabian restaurant is in the same backyard that has open on shabbat.
only instant coffee for breakfast in plastic cups, why? But that's bearable.
Quaintness of hotel & friendliness of staff
Some Public Areas used for Storage
The staff - all were warm, approachable and helpful. The room - comfortable. Breakfast - good selection. The location - near the Jaffa Gate, was excellent. The building - though old was in good condition and some rooms were being renovated. Facilities - free wifi, dining room, though we did not have dinner there, electric jug with tea bags and coffee satchels, though no sugar.
The room - the shower cubicle was too small to wash easily.
the charming staff. we had one night up in galilee and were able to leave our luggage and return to the same room. generous breakfast. the location was great - right near Jaffa gate -so noises of old city life + free music at night from the light show at David's tower, We would be happy to come back
need to be fit - the toilet was upstairs in our room/s, and no lift.
The owner and his daughter were perfectly charming and most helpful. I had very good night sleep and the hotel's central location was important and convenient for me.
The bathroom light in the first room that was given to me did not work. It was very nice bathroom though. But I was relocated to another room and all was well.
A quirky hotel with really friendly staff and excellent wifi. Rooms clean and functional with satellite TV, if unnervingly tall. Personal approach to evening meals. The chef designed the food around us. It was delicious. And the location is brilliant. This is one of very few hotels actually within the city walls. If it was good enough for Kaiser Willhelm....
It was amazing experience for us. Historical building, perfect personnel, good food, fantastic location, very good price ... Next time I will stay there again.
The location and the breakfast
very convenient location to explore Jerusalem; internet, breakfast were fine; the atmosphere of the building brings you back several centuries
the bathroom, unfortunately, also brings you back several centuries; at this price level I would have expected a less primitive shower.
Th Imperial is one of my favourites, so now I'm pleased that it's connected with booking.com to make reservations which I can recommend to my Jerusalem-loving friends for convenience. It's important that I always feel safe at this hotel, and the staff are courteous, friendly and always treat me like family. Well done! I look forward to returning!
Except for location nothing else is Good.
There no telephone,bathroom is too small,very old linens and furniture.breakfast is not worth mentioning. WILL NOT RECOMMEND ANYONE.
