The Egyptian-Jewish Mosseri built the limestone palace of European design in 1931. Moreover, the hotel's elegant public spaces are decorated with Assyrian, Hittite, Phoenician, Muslim, and other motifs. This is fitting as it has been the location for many important events.

History

Built by an Egyptian banker, the landmark hotel dates back to 1929. It was built to host royalty and other historical figures, as well as elites around the globe. For example, three monarchs fled their states from the hotel once they lived there: King Alfonso XIII, King Haile Selassie of Ethiopia in 1936, and King George II of Greece (1942). The British also used the hotel as an administrative and military headquarters during the British mandate to the region from 1938 to 1948.

The Dan Hotel Chain purchased the hotel in 1958 after it was destroyed by an underground Zionist group that targeted British authorities. The property has been home to many famous guests, including Madonna, Richard Gere, and Prince William.
