Villa Ba'Moshava

Top choice boutique hotel in German Colony & Southern Jerusalem

This 23-room hotel within a romantic 19th-century sandstone building occupies a placid spot on a residential street in the German Colony. Standard rooms aren't huge, but it's hard to mind since they feature high ceilings, rain showers, mini-fridges and are regally attired with gilt drapes and other luxury features. A fabulous breakfast (120NIS) is served in the sunny courtyard.

There's an atmospheric cocktail bar, and the hotel provides bikes for guests to use. Parking can be difficult in this neighbourhood.
