Prices are in dollars.
The charming old-world American Colony Hotel in eastern Jerusalem is where east meets west, Jews and Arabs meet, and diplomats and journalists listen in on each others conversations. Most of these interactions happen at one of the two iconic bars--in the winter months at the Cellar Bar, on the lower floor of the hotel, where low stone arches and oriental-style furnishings create an atmosphere of mystery and discretion. In the summer, at the beautiful Summer Bar garden, located just to the right of the hotel entry way. Here, amongst the lush foliage and comfortable outdoor seating, visitors can sip long cool drinks and relax in an oasis of luxury in the midst of eastern Jerusalem.
