American Colony

A former Pasha’s palace built in 1860. One of the first buildings constructed outside the walls of the Old City of Jerusalem. A favorite site for many “on location” film sets and a venue for celebrities… 

Baron Ustinov, grandfather of Sir Peter, who ran the Park Hotel in Jaffan was looking for a hostel in Jerusalem. So he made an arrangement that led to the American Colony Hostel. In the mid fifties of the last century the standard of quality raised sufficienly to change the name to Hotel.
