The Old City – rich in history, and home to holy sites of the three monotheistic religions – has important churches, mosques, and the Western Wall, all ready to be explored and appreciated.

Jerusalem’s Old City is split into four districts: the Jewish, Muslim, Armenian and Christian quarters, each of which holds its own unique delights and tells a different story of Jerusalem. Together, all four quarters create an unforgettably fascinating and emotional experience.

When you think of the Old City of Jerusalem, think hidden treasures. The Old City is known for its narrow streets bathed in exotic scents and colors, small coffeehouses nestled in alleys, lively markets where you’ll find authentic and distinctive souvenirs, gourmet restaurants, and cozy neighborhood cafés where you can take a break from exploring.

Ancient Jerusalem sparks curiosity in the soul of every tourist, and there are many different tour options available – there is sure to be a tour that’s perfectly suited to your passions. There are the classic stops at meaningful religious sites, like the Western Wall and Via Dolorosa – and more modern and creative options such as authentic culinary tours that allow you to experience the city through its diverse foods.

The hotel staff will be happy to craft you a custom itinerary, suited to your personal tastes, to create the unique Jerusalem visit that is perfect for you.

Our Story

538 BC

Cyrus II (also known as Cyrus the Great or Koresh) was the first king of the Persian kingdom. The declaration of Cyrus gave the Jews exiled in Babylon the right to return to Israel and build the Second Temple there. Koresh Street in Jerusalem is named after him.

1946

Following the explosion of the King David Hotel on July 22, 1946, the British began confiscating shops and offices in buildings where there were British targets to prevent similar attacks. The British evacuated Jewish shopkeepers and businesses from the Russian compound and from nearby Jaffa Street, the most bustling commercial area of Jewish Jerusalem , and built a fortified and fenced military compound around their government offices in Jerusalem.

2017

In May 2017, the Koresh Central Hotel and Bar opened. It was designed by Israeli architect Gad Halperin and features architectural elements in keeping with the building's rich history. We are proud to be a family run hotel in a historic building in Jerusalem's center.
