ALEGRA BOUTIQUE HOTEL
Derech HaAhayot 13, Jerusalem
Built in 1930, The Alegra Boutique Hotel is a prime example of a dynamic fusion of old and new, past and present. Located in one of Jerusalem’s most desirable addresses, in the heart of the picturesque neighborhood of Ein Kerem, we re-opened the doors in 2010 of the “House of the Jewish Girl” who fell in love with a Christian lad and ignited a love story that captured the imagination of generations of Jerusalemites.
The fairy tale story of Alegra Bello, a beautiful Jewish girl from Machane Yehuda and her sweetheart, Ian Jebra Francis Rahil from the village of Ein Kerem. The two eloped and secretly married in the city of Bethlehem, where she also converted into Christianity. Hearing this, Alegra’s father declared her “dead” and even sat “Shiva” and mourned her for seven days (Jewish mourning tradition).
The couple returned and settled down in Ein Kerem, where Jebra Francis built the enchanted house as a symbol of his love for Alegra.
With outstanding restoration and preservation, which led to an amazing design, you will definitely feel pampered in any of our unique rooms and suites, a short drive from the Old City, Parliament and at a stroll’s distance from hidden boutique shops and cafés, you would experience Jerusalem like no other.
