The range of accommodations in Jerusalem is remarkable—from the impressive YMCA to the renowned King David Hotel. Even if you stay at neither, both deserve a look. The King David is frequented by politicians and celebrities. The Y's charm is in its architectural details—it was designed by the same architect who designed New York's Empire State Building.
There are a growing number of new luxury hotels and moderately priced hotels, most of which are clean and comfortable. Some of Israel's best boutique-hotels are in Jerusalem and Ein Kerem. You'll also find a mix of international hotel chains with modern accommodations, most of them within walking distance of downtown. In the Old City, there's everything from pleasant bed-and-breakfasts to austere youth hostels and convents that have been converted into dormitory-style hotels.
