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.

I cannot speak highly enough of this Jerusalem treasure of a hotel. Superb location. Spotlessly clean. Lovely room with kettle, coffee, tea, and fridge. Perfect for use of amazing gym and vast Olympic size pool. Stroll in and out of your room as you navigate the city.

Found this hotel by looking for a place to stay in Jerusalem with a friend. The price for the night in a very spacious room with great bathroom was more than correct. The breakfast served as a buffet is copious and the staff is more than friendly. Really recommend this place

I have been coming to the Three Arches Hotel at the Jerusalem International YMCA for 34 years, since 1988, and it looks the best I ever remember; they have really spruced it up during the painful Covid shutdown. Unless one needs kosher-food accommodations, this is my unabashed recommendation for where to stay when in Jerusalem. The staff under the leadership of hotel manager Raed Leil has grown better and better; it’s quite remarkable. We just arrived last night, but Hassan the reservations manager took great care of us on arrival, and Jamal from the reception staff is extremely helpful as well. Because I have a long history with the place, I know that other staff members will impress me over the rest of this week. The downside is that the restaurant now closes at 2:00 p.m. because of staffing shortages, so it is not yet open in the evenings again, but over time that will change. And then there is the superb sports facility that one can use for free as a guest; Brett is there working out now. I know . . . I should be. Tomorrow, I promise. Or maybe Wednesday. 😊 Stay here -- you will love it, and the remarkable mission of the Jerusalem International YMCA makes this unlike any other hotel you will stay in.

Have stayed here many times and am really impressed with the upgrades they have made. The rooms retain their historic look while having all of the modern conveniences. Staff are warm and helpful. Hassan made sure we had all that we needed. Visit includes access to the athletic facility which is superb. Restaurant is only open limited hours due to staff shortage but there are many nearby restaurants for late afternoon and dinner.
