NileGuide Expert tip:
Great bar menu in the ground floor cafe/bar.
One of three large hotels built in 2000 on Jerusalem's seam line, between eastern and western Jerusalem. Caters mostly to large tour groups, but facilities are modern, light, clean and expansive. The hotel is built around an olive tree that gives the atrium its Middle Eastern flavor. It's a 10 minute walk to Damascus Gate at the northern side of the Old City, but the streets are not too conducive to walking and there's little street life in the vicinity. In August 2011 when the Jerusalem Light Rail becomes operational, it'll be a short ride into the center of town.
