Jerusalem Hotel Review: The Ramada Renaissance Hotel

One of the finest hotels in Jerusalem is the Ramada Renaissance, a top tier hotel with just the right ambiance, service and luxuries to make you feel at home. It’s the kind of hotel where guests return over and over again, because the staff makes them feel welcome, the rooms are tasteful and clean, and the amenities are second to none.


The Ramada is on a strip of hotels just inside the entrance to Jerusalem and is close to all important attractions, yet in a quiet location. Herzl Street is a long boulevard leading to Yad Vashem and Mount Herzl military cemetery. It is just behind several important buildings including the Knesset and the Supreme Court Building, and it is adjacent to the Binyanei Ha’uma convention center and event hall. A short stroll leads to the famed Machane Yehuda shuk, where natives hawk their wares at the best prices in the city. A ten minute drive brings you to Jerusalem’s hip downtown and all of its entertainment, shopping and world-class dining, and five more minutes brings you to the ancient walls of the Old City and all of its historic significance.


The immaculate rooms in the Ramada are elegantly furnished and kept up to date. There are Deluxe rooms that come in various sizes to accommodate single guests and families, and executive rooms for the business professional. Suites with extra amenities are available as well. All rooms come with LCD TV and cable, work desk, personal a/c/heating and view. Many rooms have a balcony. All are luxuriously appointed.


The Ramada has many facilities for the business traveler in a business center with computers, a PA system, microphones and more. There are ten meeting rooms, and the hotel can accommodate events of up to 2,600 people.

The hotel serves a gourmet Israeli breakfast with a huge spread of breads, pastries, salads, quiches and more. There is an elegant, on-site restaurant that is popular with the guests, and there is a lounge dining option as well as a coffee shop. The hotel’s kitchen is under the supervision of the Jerusalem Mehadrin Rabbinate.

There is plenty else to do in the hotel for those who want to relax, including a high level fitness center and indoor and outdoor pools. For families, there’s a children’s pool as well, and for the sports enthusiast there are also tennis courts.

For an authentic Jerusalem experience with the personalized service you expect, the Ramada Renaissance is the cream of Jerusalem hotels.
