A former theological seminary, the Knights Palace possesses a unique charm of days gone by. Although the present building dates mostly to the 1880s (with later additions), some parts date back to at least the 11th and 12th Century. The original stone building has an imposing presence with its traditional vaulted ceilings, arched doorways and distinctive atmosphere. The building has recently been completely restructured and re-designed to accommodate the needs of modern travelers, providing 50 bedrooms all with en-suite facilities, air-conditioning, direct-dial telephones and satellite television channels.
Located in the north-western corner of the Old City, the Knights Palace is easily accessed through the NEW GATE or the JAFFA GATE. Vehicular access is possible to the entrance of the premises through the narrow and sometimes congested street. With the major tourist, religious and cultural sites within a short walking distance, the Knights Palace is the ideal place to be when visiting the Holy City.
