Infact the building itself has an interesting history when in 1946 it was actualy the headquarters of the Lehi (a Zionist paramilitary organization founded by Avraham ("Yair") Stern in Mandatory Palestine. "Fighters for the Freedom of Israel – Lehi") And In this building they made the first attempts to manufacture Explosive materials and were hiding here weapon.
The explosive and the weapon were used by the fighters in all their activities around Israel and from here the weapon was transferred to save and protect Jerusalem during the Independence war.
Today Villa Vilina is an Apartment hotel. Unique and original place which remain authentic to what the neighborhood was before it turned into shining little Paris.
