Even with 194 rooms, the Mamilla Hotel has a boutique feel. The spacious lobby strikes a note of moody sophistication with its central fireplace, clusters of chairs, modish lighting and espresso bar. Italian designer Piero Lissoni’s style-forward flair takes on a palette of plums, grays and Indian reds to enhance creamy Jerusalem stone walls, which are dotted with vintage black-and-white prints of the area. Up on the rooftop sundeck, loungers are surrounded by lush herbs and shrubs, and the Old City views just can’t be bettered.
Bed and Bath
Minimalist furnishings are contrasted with natural elements: wood underfoot, rough stone walls and arched windows. Mirrored dressers, drop lights and pleated side lamps, black lacquered headboards and white sliding walls set light against dark. The verbena-infused stone bathrooms have rain shower wet areas, plus angular tubs with racks stacked with L’Occitane toiletries. A standout feature is the state-of-the-art liquid crystal wall that separates bathroom from bedroom — it turns from transparent to opaque at the flick of a switch. Suites even have mini LCD screens set into the bathroom mirror. Slippers in both his and hers sizes are a sweet touch.
The flagship Rooftop Lounge & Restaurant — a pleasing mishmash of white wicker chairs, sofas dressed in bright fabrics and glass goblet–strewn tables — serves Middle Eastern–inspired dishes (spring chicken with apricots and dates, saffron-infused ravioli, almond sahlab for dessert). Breakfast, served in the stately Dining Room, is a dainty array of Israeli specialties with a modern twist; the seared eggplant dipped in yogurt is sensational. The Mirror Bar draws in Jerusalem’s socialites, with hot tunes from the nightly DJs and a mixologist behind the back-lit alabaster bar. There’s a state-of-the-art gym on-site, and guests receive a 10 percent discount at the ethereal Akasha spa, where the hammam and watsu pool complement an enticing massage menu. The subterranean pool has indigo cube tiling and spot-lit orchids, resulting in an under-the-sea vibe. Prior to guests’ arrival at the Mamilla, a host gets in touch to offer assistance and remains on hand during the stay; call anytime for a restaurant tip when out and about in the Eternal City.
How to Get There
My husband and I visit Israel frequently and the only place we now stay is The Mamilla Hotel. Not only is it beautiful and very up to date technologically as well as aesthetically but more over THE STAFF AT THE MAMILLA are unparalleled!!!! We have stayed in other competitive hotels over our many stays in Israel and never have we experienced the personal attention that is showered upon us at The Mamilla. In addition, the rooms are kept in pristine condition and any request in granted immediately.
The breakfast is delicious and plentiful from ongoing fresh squeezed juices, cappuccinos, fresh fruits, salads, fish and eggs prepared to your taste. There’s outdoor seating if that interests you or indoor with room to sit comfortably without other guest intrusion. Should you need ANYTHING, Hamzeh, Musa or Shady Abasi are you go to guys.
I am convinced you will be thrilled with your choice of hotels and find yourselves missing the service you received once your vacation has ended. ENJOY!!!!
We loved everything about this hotel. The lobby is gorgeous, and the front desk staff very friendly and professional.
Our room was modern and well appointed, if not a bit small. Although we did book the lowest cost room type, so we were expecting this. The bed is very comfortable, and the AC was nice and strong (AC is important to us).
The restaurants and bar are excellent. The breakfast is great!
The location is perfection. Love this hotel.
Stayed here on a tour. The hotel is perfectly located to get to the Old City and other Jerusalem sites. Short walk to the new light rail stop. The rooms are small and decorated in minimalist style. The "wall" between the bedroom and bathroom is a glass wall that can be made opaque with the flip of a switch. Very cool! Minimal space in the bathroom to put your necessities. Modern bathroom with tub and shower.
We have stayed at hotels all over the world. Mamilla is a superior property in all regards. Service, food, room accommodations, parking, Old City walking proximity were all excellent. We would like to especially commend Ronit Ezra for her wonderful attention to detail and high level of professionalism . As well, Rachel at the Rooftop restaurant was a great waitress. Thank you for a memorable stay. We plan to return. Jared and Shawn
The hotel is modern with amazing view. Rooms are clean nicely decorated and comfortable. We brought a group of 16 friend to stay in the hotel for 4 nights. They all were amazed. The hotel served us dinner at the rooftop restaurant. The food was amazing and the view was fantastic. The location is central and close to the old city and the center on the new city. It is also next door to the amazing Mamilla Mall.
