Arched doorways and windows in golden-hued Jerusalem stone frame this hotel's ethereal views of the Hinnom Valley. The beautiful pool area has sprawling views, and the lush gardens are redolent with rosemary, honesuckle, and olive trees. The Turkish steam-bath spa complex, decorated with traditional blue tiles, is a great addition. The core of the hotel is a 19th-century building that once served as a British hospital. With Moroccan-style decor, the older Citadel rooms
have more character and are more spacious.
