A unique hotel in Jerusalem's Jewish Quarter in the Old City. The Sephardic House hotel nestles at the very heart of the Jewish Quarter of Jerusalem's Old City - an exquisite jewel offering the ultimate More hospitality in the magical atmosphere of Jerusalem. The building was first built some 200 years ago and completed towards the end of the 19th century. From the residence, there are superb views of the Old City and the City of David. The complex boasts 51 guest rooms located in three separate wings, each offering a different level of accommodation and hospitality: Deluxe wing - offers superb and luxurious accommodation in 12 rooms and 3 suites. The entire storey of deluxe accommodations faces towards the charming patio with its echoes of a traditional Spanish courtyard orchard. Rishon LeTzion wing - a wing suitable for private events, such as family gatherings, with 6 rooms. Economy wing - with 30 standard guest rooms for dual and single occupancy. Our guest rooms have been designed meticulously in order to carefully conserve their historical features create a harmonious blend with modern luxury and comfort, so that guests can enjoy a truly unique holiday experience. Sephardic House is a unique building in the Jewish Quarter, located within walking distance of the magical alleyways of the Old City of Jerusalem, the ancient Hurva Synagogue, the Kotel (Western Wall), Mt. Zion, the Kotel tunnels, the Armenian Quarter, the Church of the Holy Sepulcher, the Mamilla District, the Jerusalem Cinemathèque and town center. This location provides an extremely convenient starting point for walks around the Old City, while its proximity to the Western Wall transforms it into an attractive venue for hosting Bar/Bat Mitzvahs and other family events. We invite you to come and enjoy the attention of our friendly, professional team and experience our exceptional standard of service and hospitality. Take in the magical views, the atmosphere of holiness and peacefulness, alongside the life of a vibrant modern city that offers you countless leisure options and facilities Less
