Great for views of Jerusalem in every direction. They ask for a small donation. The tower itself is a mixture of architectural styles and worth a visit.

The tower was all lit up for Christmas, and looked really beautiful. It's a great landmark for navigating back to the hotel at night!

Whether you stay here or not, you must go up to the tower. Each way you look is a wonderful picture of Jerusalem. The YMCA is located directly across from the famous King David Hotel, and they are so different. The King David is opulent,...More

Nice hotel all around. Good lovation. If coming from Tel Aviv by bus. Take the light rail and get off at city hall. Walk down the hiill and steer left. Very closed to Jaffa Gate.

Going up to the Tower we make you see Jerusalem all around. The 360° view let you see East to West & North to South of the city. You notice the huge # of the cross over the churches rather than Al-Aqsa Mosque & the...More

Perfect location. We walked everywhere from here during our stay in Jerusalem. The hotel in a 15 minute walk to the old city and the Wailing Wall. There is also a very modern outdoor mall right down the street if anyone desires to do some...More

Second time we have stayed here. If you stay here you are opting to stay in an architectural icon. The building is a very calm, restful place - almost has retreat like qualities. The location is excellent- short walk to Jaffa Gate and in other...More
