Five minutes from the Old City, this hotel is once again attracting the diplomats and government officials who patronized it during its glory days. Back in the 1950s, this was the favorite Jerusalem hangout for Jordan's King Hussein. The rooms are pleasantly decorated with wood furnishings boasting an elegant espresso finish. Family rooms are spacious enough for four people, and special wide-entry rooms accommodate those with mobility issues. The ground-floor coffee shop
and rooftop restaurant are nice bonuses.
