"Our annual refuge in Jerusalem"

“When Salme opened the door to Sultan's Refuge this April - a year after our last visit - we felt the serenity of this special place take hold once more.
It was magical to return, not only to the extremely tastefully designed accommodation, with an architect's eye to great attention to detail, but, also to the magnificent views over Sultan's Pool, to the vista of the Old City walls and to the charm and quiet of Yemin Moshe. Our visit was planned around the availability of Sultan's Refuge, - for us, having been fortunate enough to stay here twice now, there is no consideration of alternative accommodation. And so it will be, hopefully again next year. We will come back to enjoy its idyllic situation, its great comfort and the warmth, care and concern of Salme.”
