The Dan Hotel is built into the slope of Mount Scopus, one of the ridges of the Mount of Olives. With its expansive terraces, the hotel is designed so that each room looks out over the Old City. Rooms are smartly appointed and the hotel boasts one of Jerusalem's finest fitness centers, including a half Olympic side indoor pool that's popular with local residents. There are basketball, tennis and volleyball courts and a free shuttle to downtown Jerusalem. A business center and shopping arcade are part of the entry-level of the hotel. Chances are that many of your fellow guests will be attending a conference at the nearby Hadassah Hospital or Hebrew University.
