THE POST is located on the top floor of the historical Central Post Office of Jerusalem.

Built between 1934-38 and designed by the public works department of the British Mandate, this unique architectural monument integrates both the international style as well as the traditional Jerusalem design.

It was originally the home of the Palestine Post, Telegraph & Telephone, the Jerusalem central telephone exchange and the city's post office and serves as the central post office until this day. Its exterior is an expression of its history, with influences from various periods and cultures, including seven arches along the main entrance, five of which were originally openings for selling postage stamps. English, Hebrew and Arabic writing can be found along them, indicating the fusion of cultures and religions of this special place.

The construction process for THE POST considered the historical and architectural importance of this building, gently peeling back layers of history. The delicate process revealed the original walls, floors and ceilings of this unique landmark, bringing history to life and enhancing the connection between past, present and future. THE POST sends its visitors back in time, while remaining very much alive and in tune with the bustle and motion of today's city.


Our cheerful staff will be happy to help you in any way. Please feel free to come by the front desk for any assistance pertaining to your room or stay or if you have any questions. We will also be more than happy to help you book a tour or sign up for an in-house event.
