Browns Ho­tel Group new open­ing: Villa Brown Jerusalem

Travel Daily ME - - News -

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.
