The Mamilla Hotel is in close proximity to the Jaffa Gate. The hotel, which consists of an old and a new structure, is closely connected with the history of the city. The natural stone and thus the warm, sandy colors of Jerusalem are carried throughout the entire hotel, while historic maps decorate the walls. The 210 rooms, along with the public areas, are distributed over the building’s eight floors above ground and the two below. The main architectural component is the untreated sheet steel staircase, resembling a giant origami sculpture.
