Two of my favorite people.
Some greenery on the terrace.
A view of the hotel from the Mamilla Café bridge. The numbers were placed on the hotel bricks so that during construction each brick remained in its original location.
A peaceful corner in the hotel lobby.
The rooftop restaurant.
My beautiful room. Yes, there was enough space for a full cartwheel.
Hotel sitting area with photographs of what the Mamilla neighborhood originally looked like.
Just swinging in the outdoor patio.
The Mirror Bar.
One of the hotel’s thoughtfully curated bookshelves.
Breakfast of champions.
The Mamilla Café.
The old with the new.
Highs + Lows
Moshe Safdie, the hotel’s architect, did an unbelievable job of integrating the ancient Jerusalem architecture with the hotel’s sleek, modern design.
The Akasha gym and spa was one of the best I have ever visited. The daily fitness classes were better than those at my local gym!
The bathrooms in each guestroom were really special with a separate bathtub and rain shower, a flat screen tv, and extremely entertaining liquid-crystal glass.
You can find some of the best views of Jerusalem from various vantage points at the hotel… the rooftop, the sundeck, and the Mamilla Café bridge.
If you forget reading material the hotel offers more than enough with various magazines, coffee table books, novels, and guide books strategically located throughout the hotel.
Check-in took longer than usual.
