Whenin Israeli, you visit Jerusalem. With a country that has a lot to see it’s conveniently small enough to drive around in no time. Besides the sites of the old city, I was there to visit an Atlas hotels, a boutique,hotel named being Arthur Hotel. You’ll note that Arthur Hotel is ranked in the top 5 hotels in Jerusalem, and so it should be. It is located on the famous Dorot Rishonim Street and it’s 54 rooms are designed to reflect the diverse cultural influence.
What appeals to me most is the vintage meets contemporary vibe, modern decor and colours against the photographs on the walls that date back to the beginning of the 20th Century. The reception area, is a comfy, spacious little hangout. The restaurant equally spacious with a gem out the back, an outdoor seating area. Disco! Breakfast can be found here, buffet style with some highly recommend shakshuka. Also served each day between 5 and 8 are snacks and drinks..which are free, for it is Happy Hour. There you can find tea, coffee, cakes, crisps, nuts, other little snacks and of course wine…well worth dropping in on before exploring the surrounding area for a drink on an eve.
The elevator brought me up to the floor where my suite lived, a room with a big comfy bed, on suite and little balcony looking out over the city and of course all the other essentials for a more than comfy stay. Arthur Hotel is newest boutique hotel in Jerusalem, it’s a ten minute walk to the old city, a nice lovely walk actually. There is free wi-fi throughout, there’s the happy hour and practically up the road is the Mamilla shopping center where all the different kinds of food from all over the world can be found, bought and consumed right there. Hungry, you better be. For a comfy, relaxing, easy convenient stay Arthur Hotel wins hands down.
