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
Best location, outstanding design, exceptional service.
Thank you Emanuel, special shout out to Hamzeh & Rosaline who will make your breakfast even more memorable.
One of the best hotels I have stayed in throughout the world.
The staff was very polite and welcoming . Got boiling hot coffee spilled over my legs. Burned my leg. First aid was very good! Worked quickly.
Didn’t get a chance to enjoy the food due to the unfortunate coffee accident. Must say that the bar had a very small choice of snacks
We have enjoyed a 3 night stay at the Mamilla during our visit to the holy city. The accommodations are wonderful, very modern and classy decoration. The rooms are very comfortable. The breakfast included in the stay is a delight well served by a very attentional staff. The restaurant is one of the best of the city (if not the best). Overall, I highly recommend this hotel.
Sameh was wonderful! Patient to listen and quick to do. Enjoyed and appreciaged our stay very much! Everything was set us nicely our breakfast was delicious and the dinner and wine we had waiting in our room was a kind and pleasant surprise!
Really neat place, clean and awesome staff - The breakfast is amazing and the rooftop restaurant is a must. You are close to the shopping, the western wall and a bunch of shops just after the Mamilla shopping
