The History Behind Sergei Palace Hotel

In the 80s of the 1800s, pilgrimages from the Russian Empire to Jerusalem increased significantly. In 1882, the Imperial Orthodox Palestine Society was established to assist the pilgrimage to the Holy Land. The voyage from Russia to Jerusalem became more manageable and cheaper thanks to the agreements made by the Parboslav company.

Moreover, the pilgrims received special tickets at low prices. The Imperial Orthodox Palestine Society even cared for a convenient and safe transfer of the Russian pilgrims from Jaffa to Jerusalem. The hostels in the Russian Compound (which was established starting in 1860) were expanded. When the number of pilgrims exceeded 2,000, the company rented additional accommodations. Furthermore, to increase the accommodations, the company purchased the lot north of the Russians’ lot in 1886 to build a new hostel. The lot was adjacent to the Russian Compound but outside the surrounding wall.

So the hotel’s design is inspired by the Russian imperial palaces of the 19th century, featuring intricate architectural details and elegant decor. Furthermore, the 55 guest rooms and suites are tastefully furnished with plush bedding, designer furnishings, and high-tech amenities such as flat-screen TVs and complimentary Wi-Fi. Last, one of the standout features of the Sergei Palace Hotel is its stunning rooftop terrace, which offers panoramic views of the city and the surrounding hills.
