East New Imperial hotel

Jaffa Gate, Old City


With a fabulous, impossible-to-miss location just steps inside Jaffa Gate, the East New Imperial was the last word in luxury when it opened in the 1880s: The ground floor courtyard was once an elegant, gated private bazaar for fastidious 19th-century guests.
The lobby houses a collection of historical prints of Jerusalem as well as artwork from around the globe. The hotel has a modern Internet cafe bringing old-world splendor and our tech-driven future together.
The East New Imperial Hotel runs a 24-hour front desk and offers a terrace. Meeting facilities, a safety deposit box and luggage storage are also available. The internet lounge is open 24/7.
All rooms come with a flat-satellite screen TV and a balcony. Complete with a refrigerator, the dining area also has an electric kettle. Private bathrooms also come with a bath or shower.
The East New Imperial offers a rich breakfast buffet, and a grocery shop is located right next to the hotel. The hotel restaurant serves all kind of Middle eastern cuisine. Several Mediterranean restaurants can be found in the vicinity.
