#9 of 120 in Jerusalem
Travellers' Choice
The YMCA Three Arches Hotel, with its 152 ft high central bell tower, is a Jerusalem landmark recognized the world over. Designed by the world famous architect of the Empire State Building, the hotel offers a blend of old world charm, friendly hospitality, art works and architectural wonders, together with modern, comfortable accommodations to ensure a pleasant and memorable stay in this remarkable city. The external facade of the hotel bears intricate sculptures and inscriptions in English, Arabic and Hebrew reflecting the YMCA's historical role as a meeting place and a spiritual haven in this intense and ancient city. The beautiful gardens and lawns, graceful shade trees, and stone pathways around the hotel are open for our guests' strolling pleasure. The hotel's public areas feature high-ceiling halls and walls often lined with colorful modern works of Israeli and Palestinian artists. The elegant Archibald C. Harte Restaurant restaurant serves culinary delights to our guests, with its garden terrace a delightful oasis in the midst of the city on sunny days and mild evenings. That same sense of tranquility pervades the hotel's rooms and suites, where guests may relax and gather their strength for days of sightseeing or meetings in bustling Jerusalem. The ancient Jaffa Gate, main entrance to the fascinating walled Old City, is just a few minutes' walk away, as are shops, vibrant cafes and restaurants as well as the cultural attractions and night life of the modern metropolis. Three Arches Hotel awaits your arrival, at the very heart of Jerusalem, where peace and quiet reigns, with a pervasive sense of welcome and well-being.

The YMCA is the perfect place for a short vacation in Jerusalem. , immaculstely clean and with lovely rooms, we couldnt have wished for anythimg better. Central, accessible The staff were charming and very helpful, the breakfast was fresh and tasty, and the surroundings delightful. It was fun having the sports facilities so available, and with a nice cafe with coffee and lovely shakes. We attended two world-class concerts in the YMCA hall, which was basically the purpose of the visit, and it was really convenient staying in the same location. Highly recommended.

Great staff and great hotel at reasonable prices! Location is excellent to visit old city on foot. Access to exercise facilities and Breakfast service was a highlight. Not the King David hotel next door, but also not triple the price if luxury is not a requirement!

The hotel is well situated near Jaffa Street. It’s an incredibly nice complex from the 1930s with comfortable rooms, a stunning entrance hallway and a nice breakfast area. Hotel staff was very courteous. Breakfast was plentiful and a real deal in comparison to the Jerusalem prices in restaurants! Can really recommend.

3 Arches is located across the street from the King David hotel and close to the Manila mall. The building is beauty and was designed by the same Architect who designed the Empire State building. The rooms are adequate, although the beds are not very comfortable. Service in the hotel was inconsistent and at times not very good. Breakfast was just adequate and often was not ready at 7 AM when it was supposed to be open.
