Lonely Planet review
After changing its name and having a major facelift, the former YMCA hostel in East Jerusalem is looking pretty snazzy. There are two types of room (deluxe and standard), both of which have kettles and cable TV. It's worth paying extra for a deluxe version as these have larger bathrooms and balconies with views over the Mount of Olives.
Facilities include a 5th-floor restaurant with great views over the Old City, a lobby bar and a garden cafe. Guests are given free entry to the YMCA gym and indoor pool in the building next door.
Our independent authors have visited Legacy Hotel and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Jerusalem.
