Old meets new at Mamilla Hotel Jerusalem

Located at the heart of Jerusalem, Mamilla Hotel provides magnificent views of the Old City walls, the Tower of David and Jaffa Gate and is at the centre of the city’s rich cultural heritage. Designed in collaboration with architects Moshe Safdie and Hall of Fame Piero Lissoni, the design combines sophistication and simplicity with exciting lighting, textures and colours.

Being just an hour’s drive from Tel Aviv and two-or-three hours’ drive from major destinations such as Eilat, the Negev Desert, Dead Sea and the lush, green topography of the North, Jerusalem is an essential part of any trip to Israel.

Mamilla juxtaposes the sights of this ancient city with a modern approach to hospitality that reflects the expectations and needs of a well-travelled and discerning clientele. It combines the warmth of local Jerusalemite culture with a working knowledge of contemporary luxury trends, services and venues.

The hotel features 194 guest rooms and suites, including Studios, Executive Rooms, Mamilla Suites, Residence Suites and the Presidential Suite with bedroom, living room, dinning/study area and kitchen.

Mamilla is focused on providing experiences for the mind, body and soul. This is evident in world-class architecture by Moshe Safdie, contemporary design by Piero Lissoni, multiple restaurants and bar venues offering local and international cuisine; a chic ‘Mirror’ bar; a terrazzo-style Rooftop restaurant; Akasha, a holistic wellbeing centre; various events and banqueting spaces; and professional and personalised service.

Akasha Holistic Wellbeing Centre creates a place where mind, body and soul harmonise, and guests can release everyday tensions. The space is split into different areas in alignment with the four elements to ensure comprehensive restoration and rejuvenation. ‘Earth’ is a lounge bar providing organic snacks and drinks; ‘Water’ is the main spa, featuring sound, music and aroma therapies, exclusive Watsu pool hydro-treatments, and special Hammam treatments; ‘Fire’ is the gym, fitted with equipment including Kinesis, plus a spacious aerobics, spinning and Pilates room; ‘Air’ is a peaceful space for yoga, tai-chi and meditation, with music that changes according to the time of day.

Heeding Jerusalem law which dictates that all new construction utilises Jerusalem Stone – a local limestone with a distinctive, light hue – Moshe Safdie has developed a true Jerusalem aesthetic that is both modern and in keeping with the surrounding ancient walls and buildings.

The Mamilla Hotel is a quintessentially urban place. It is a combination of historic buildings and contemporary architecture rising out of the network of alleys which connect the walled and the new cities of Jerusalem. It combines the pattern of the old with cutting-edge modernity.

This includes Happy Fish, a Mediterranean-inspired fish restaurant. The Rooftop outdoor lounge and restaurant offers unbeatable views while the Mirror Bar includes a range of classic drinks, exclusive cocktails and bar food. The Winery offers one of the largest selections of Israeli kosher wines in the country, served upon antique wooden counters.
