Browns Hotel Group new opening: Villa Brown Jerusalem
The Villa Brown Jerusalem, the newest addition to the Brown Hotels group, is a 24-room boutique hotel.
The hotel is a five minutes’ walk from Jerusalem's Old City sites and is situated in the heart of the bustling city centre with its trendy cafes, highcaliber museums and art galleries, restaurants, bars and the famed Mahane Yehuda food market.
The hotel itself neighbours the city’s stunning Russian Compound and new Bezalel Academy of Design and Arts, while its rooftop offers a bird's eye view of the Ethiopian Orthodox Church.
The Villa Brown Jerusalem is housed within a one-time private villa from the 19th-century belonging to a Jewish doctor and general manager of Jerusalem's historic Rothschild Hospital.
The original walls of exposed stone within the property date back to more than 100 years ago, and pay homage to the signature architecture for which Jerusalem is known.
Following a complete restoration by Jerusalem based architects, Galit Shifman Bar-Natan and Michal Cohen Magen, and the addition of two extra floors, the residence has been reimagined as the Villa Brown Jerusalem.
