The Imperial hotel is located next to the Jaffa gate of the Old City.

The edifice has an elaborate facade and the interior of the structure has series of passageways and halls that feature separate gates that are used to protect the privacy of hotel guests.

The Imperial hotel has a European inner courtyard with Roman columns and on the inside of the hotel, tall decorative ceilings.

The hotel has been managed by the Dejani family, a veteran Jerusalem family, every since it was sold by the Greek Patriarch.
