Ramada Renaissance Hotel Jerusalem

The Ramada – or as everyone still calls it, the Renaissance Hotel Jerusalem – has three things going for it:

Pool at Ramada Jerusaelm

  • It is located at the junction of several major arteries, making it easy to get to almost anywhere in town by car.

  • It has two swimming pools – something unique among Jerusalem hotels.

    There is an indoor one with a Jacuzzi and a nice one outside, with a children’s wading pool, surrounded by grass and trees.

  • It follows the highest standards of kosher certification. (See our directory of kosher hotels. )

The two first points make this a good choice if you are in town for a convention or business purposes, or if you like to swim in the winter or at night – which is why it’s one of my favorite hotels for a short retreat. If you plan on walking around Jerusalem, it isn’t as conveniently located as some of the other hotels that are closer to the main tourist attractions, but if you are more likely to hop in a cab, you can be anywhere in town within minutes.

The hotel lobby is a favorite meeting place for business people and the hotel has a special “business” wing in which the rooms provide amenities geared to business travelers, conference rooms and high-speed internet access. You’ll also find a health club and a synagogue on the premises.

Visitors consistently praise the food here and it is good. There are several glatt kosher restaurants. The dairy restaurant serves a good sweet potato ravioli and the funky light strings in the windows give it a very romantic, modern look. Room service has a selection of decadent cakes and pastries for an evening snack, in addition to the usual sandwiches and soups.
