Overview

About the property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

The Colony Suites are stylish, self-contained holiday apartments for short term accommodation in the heart of the German colony Jerusalem. Suitable for singles and families ranging from a brief visit to a longer stay. Comfortable and elegant, the apartments are designed for maximum comfort.

Nestled between the old and new parts of the capital, the German Colony is the most charming area in Jerusalem. Built by the German Templars in the 1870's, the area is known for its unique architecture and cafe culture. The colony is close to the major tourist sites (walking distance to the old city) and the host of several local attractions.

There is no better location than Colony Suites, around the corner from the post-office, bank, supermarket, chemist, cafes and public pool and gym.

About Leeora

David is an Israeli , Leeora from Australia. A team and now a family, we are still charmed by this ancient city.

We started Colony Suites in 2004 and are proud of the hundreds of satisfied guests.

Leeora purchased this apartment in 2004

Why Leeora chose Jerusalem area

Of all the neighborhoods in Jerusalem, we feel most comfortable in the German Colony. While hosting a range of restaurants with international cuisine, the German Colony has a distinct architectural style and local culture.

What makes this apartment unique

Firstly unlike most hilly areas in Jerusalem, the German Colony is flat! Our apartments are off Emek Refayim, the cafe capital of Jerusalem, we love starting our day with a hot cup of coffee and a fresh croissant.

In general we were satisfied with our stay.

  • 4 of 5

Apartment is in perfect location and comfortable for four people. Unfortunately, the weather in March was cold and not sunny to provide enough solar heated hot water. It was also expensive to heat the apartment to a comfortable level. Aviva, the manager, was the most responsive and friendly. She advised us in the future to book the apartment directly through their website, to avoid the VRBO $121 service fee. In general we were satisfied with our stay.

Owner's Response: Dear Zeya, Thank you for your review, we are happy to hear you enjoyed our apartment and location. It was indeed a particularly cold stint during your visit. In addition to the solar option, the apartment is fitted out with two other heating systems (central heating or separate energy efficient units which can be temperature controlled in each room.) The electricity charge came to $2.5 per day which comparatively is very reasonable for this time of year. We hope that you'll have some more sunny days in your next visit.

The Levant

  • 5 of 5

We have been to Israel many times but this was our first time in an apartment. We decided on the German Colony and were not disappointed. Our two week stay in The Levant in October 2016 was most enjoyable. The apartment has great character; being typical old Jerusalem with a lovely entrance (loved the beautiful door). The Levant lived up to expectations, large and airy with comfortable furnishings, and great wardrobe space. The kitchen was adequate and we ate in a number of times. If we have one negative comment, it would be that the bathroom was looking a little “tired”. The location is wonderful - set back from Emek Refaim Street so you are off the main thoroughfare, yet two minutes from supermarket, shops, restaurants and bus stops. We loved the hustle and bustle of Emek Refaim, and equally the more peaceful walk along the converted railway track at the rear of the apartment. The best of both worlds! Linda was just a phone call or email away for any minor issues or queries, always friendly and helpful. We hope to have the opportunity to make a return visit.

Colony Suites Studio Rental

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time using Colony Suites and it did not disappoint.My wife and I stayed in the Studio flat which was clean,well equipped and in a great location for visiting both the local supermarkets and shops and the Old City.The former railway footpath with the free community libraries that runs adjacent to the flat provides a relaxing way to walk into the centre.We were met by Linda when we arrived and she gave us usfull advice, information and the assurance that she was only a phone call away should we need her.The Studio was perfect for our needs and we will use Colony Suites again and would recommend them without hesitation.

Location, comfort, and price

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed in the Levant apartment for 3 weeks. The unit is spacious and comfortable. There is a loft bedroom which was wonderful when friends came over and needed a place to stay. The apartment is set back far enough from Emek Refaim that there was no problem with noise. However, once we walked the few steps to the street, we had a seemingly endless number of excellent restaurants to choose from. A large grocery was also only a short walk away. We had no major problems with the apartment, but if we did, a call to Linda (the manager) was answered promptlu, and the problem was immediately fixed.

We very much enjoyed our stay, and we would definitely rent this again on a future trip.

Colony Suite; perfect for two..

  • 4 of 5

The host is both friendly and helpful and had everything in place to ensure our stay was smooth and comfortable from beginning to end. On our last day we wanted to check out earlier than arranged and our host came at a moments notice to facilitate our request. The neighborhood - the pretty, leafy, gentrified Germany Colony with its trendy coffee shops, restaurants and independent shops, a hop and a skip from the Railway Stop and a short walk to Jaffa Gate - is the very reason you must stay in this apartment...You will not be disappointed.

Another great stay at Colony Suites in the German Colony

  • 5 of 5

This stay at the Maple apartment just off Emek Refaim ------- my fourth, I think, at Colony Suites ----- was again just great. The apartment is roomy, very well equipped, and the little supermarket down the street again makes life so easy. Sometimes when renting an apartment the downside is that you are on your own if you need something or something minor goes wrong, but not at Colony Suites, where the manager, Linda, is just a phone call away. (Not that anything went wrong this trip, but there are always questions about how to turn on something, or where the best close dry cleaner is...)

With the shops and restaurants, the bus stops and taxi stands just steps away, the location couldn't be more convenient. And now that the old "Railroad Street" that parallels Emek Refaim has become a lovely long park, an attraction in itself, there's even a pleasant outdoor area for quiet walks and for sitting outdoors and reading.

I've rented the Maple (twice) the Studio (once) and the Jade (once) and all have been pleasant. I would stay there again and have, in fact, recommended it to friends who have also enjoyed it.
