Alrov Luxury Hotels announced today that it will be opening a new location in Jerusalem, Israel. To be called the Mamilla Hotel, the resort will open this June in the city center, offering guests views of the Old City walls, the Tower of David and Jaffa Gate.
The hotel has developed a contemporary look thanks to architect Moshe Safdie and designer Piero Lissoni. The 194-room hotel will have several restaurants and bars featuring both local and international cuisine. A terrazzo-style rooftop brasserie will offer views of the Old City.
"The Mamilla Hotel is a quintessentially urban place. It is a combination of historic buildings and contemporary architecture rising out of the network of alleys which connect the walled and the new cities of Jerusalem," Safdie says. "It combines the pattern of the old with cutting edge modernity."
