A private residence of the nineteenth century has been transformed into a boutique hotel in the center of the Holy City, just a step away from the walls of the Old Town. Welcome to Villa Brown Jerusalem.
In the 19th century, the doctor who was once the general director of the historic Rothschild Hospital in Jerusalem took over this village. Stone walls that are more than 100 years old now house a hotel in the heart of Jerusalem, where cafes, museums, restaurants and the famous Mahane Yehuda market are steeped in centuries of history.
Architects Galit Shifman Bar-Natan and Michal Cohen Magen have carried out the restoration of this exclusive residence where only 24 people can stay. Its interior, like the facade, combines different decorative styles. Essences from the period of the British mandate that converse with neoclassical touches, Ottomans and more contemporary details. The red velvet, emerald and mauve dominate almost all rooms.
The hotel has an outdoor terrace where you can have breakfast with a mix of Israeli, Mediterranean and continental flavors or a tea with afternoon snacks. There are also those who go there simply to enjoy the atmosphere of Jerusalem at any time of day.
In addition, in Villa Brown Jerusalem there is an underground bar in the old well of the house where they serve cocktails of all kinds and a very nice library. The rooftop has a spa area. From there you can admire a perfect view of the Ethiopian Orthodox Church. It’s hard not to enjoy this hotel, be where you are.
