#73 of 121 in Jerusalem
Right in the center of the ancient city of Jerusalem, the new BROWN JLM by Brown Hotels blends contemporary urban hospitality with traditional Jerusalem-style elements. The hotel enjoys a remarkable location overlooking Independence Park and the new Museum of Tolerance, right between the popular Nahalat Shiva pedestrian mall on one side and the Mammilla Mall and the Old City walls on the other. Like all Brown hotels in Israel and around the world, Brown JLM provides an up-scale, up-to-date experience, topped by a beautiful infinity pool on the roof overlooking a breathtaking Jerusalem landscape. Brown JLM is housed in a historic 19th-century building that has been carefully preserved and added 6 new floors, providing 46 spacious hotel rooms designed by the Israeli architect Prof. Yossi Friedman. An ancient structure in front of the hotel as well as beautifully preserved painted ceilings in the hotel lobby add to the authentic feel and blend into a modern and stylish design, rich in details and vintage collectors’ items. The hotel offers a plush spa suite with a private hot-tub; an elegant café-bar on the ground floor; an equipped conference room and the highlight - an impressive rooftop terrace overlooking spectacular views with a beautiful infinity pool. The rooftop also offers an outdoor hot-tub and sunbathing area, alongside a rooftop bar where the hotel's breakfast is served. Brown JLM is a pet-friendly hotel, allowing in pets up to 9 KG.

The Brown Hotel is a boutique hotel, well situated for sightseeing. The rooms are comfortable and modern. They are on the small side but not so that it felt cramped. We had a tiny balcony which allowed us to keep the door open and the breeze in. The staff was efficient and friendly. The restaurant within the hotel ( but not belonging to the hotel) provided delicious breakfasts. We also had two equally tasty dinners there, sitting outside on the patio under the stars. All the staff went above and beyond to meet our needs. All in all a great experience.

Luckily we stayed only one night... I saw hundreds of hotel all around and world of all classes - never encountered such lousy room. It was so tiny that you can get on and off the bed from one side only (and it is supposed to be a double room). It is full with clumsy and inefficient furniture that occupied all the remaining space so you can't make a step without hitting some pieces of furniture - and at the same time there no storage for clothes and no place for a hanger. The window turns into a backyard full with garbage and the AC didn't work... And all this is for a "boutique" price... On the positive side: good location (but with no parking!) and friendly staff. Still, there are plenty of other hotels around...

Amazing hotel!. Excellent location and the hotel staff is very kind. The rooms are so beautiful and new. Very close to the restaurants areas and within walking distance to the old city. Special thanks to the hotel manager who is in close contact with the guest for their needs.

We stayed at the hotel for 2 nights after we make a reservation for 3 adults ( 2 parents and a 3th year old). We got a room a size of a prison cell that even our luggage couldn’t get in it.. we got moved to a different room with a baby crib that my daughter didn’t fit in of course. If you can’t handle a reservation of 3 so don’t expect one! We would have just made a reservation on a different hôtel. Bad experience

The location is perfect, but this is the only good thing that I would say about this hotel. The Hotel is extremely filthy! The carpets has stains all over, all the furnitures are filled with dust. There was someones hair in my bed! The entire infrastructure is not maintained. The Hotel has so much potential, it’s so small and cozy, has perfect location, but the maintenance is simply horrible. I feel like they completely contempt the guests. The breakfast was horrible, the coffee machine didn’t work, the food was not fresh and they serve half dishes, i.e you are getting a half and another guest is getting half of the same pie - it’s awful. Not recommended at all, especially at this price. It’s more like a low rated “guest house” than a Hotel.

We ended up booking The Brown JLM after cancelling The Herbert Samuel. (First we were going to book The Mamilla but it was a bit more than we were willing to spend). Everything worked out very well. Other than some kinks in the housekeeping and the lack of any drawers or a closet for our clothes, the hotel was very nice. All new & modern & the staff was very accommodating. The BEST part though, was the AMAZING restaurant on the lobby level- Ruhan. The food was OUTSTANDING. We had dinner there one evening & breakfast on 2 occasions. The 2nd breakfast was even better than the 1st, which was already fantastic. The other days breakfast was down the block in Cafit, which was excellent as well. (the hotel has an arrangement with them). Also, ELAL changed our flight to 13 hours later so the hotel was kind enough to let us keep the room until 7:30pm, since our flight was at 12:45am. We were very grateful for that :). All in all, we had an excellent visit. Hopefully next time they’ll have real furniture in the room & a more attentive housekeeping staff, but we would stay here again.
