We were lucky enough to get the room at the end with the view of the Dome of the Rock (thank you, jadedmuse!!!). The beds were comfortable and the sounds of birds so peaceful in the morning. The guest house had a nice breakfast set up and you could have coffee or tea at anytime in the common area. Every evening as we headed to our room, there was a group gathered together in the common area to talk about their day.
From their website: This famous house was built on crusader foundations in 1860 by the legendary Dr. Watson and retains ancient stones from the 12th century and probably before. In 1948 it was donated to the Order of St. John, who used it as an eye hospital. In 1964 it was turned into a guest house by the Lutheran Church.
Unique Quality: Be mindful of your bath towels. We were not aware there would be no housekeeping one day and had already used our towels and thrown them on the floor. We had to do laundry anyway, so we washed the towels, too!
Directions: The Old City
I've stayed here for about fifty nights altogether both in family rooms and in the dormitory. During the winter time they have excellent heat and hot water with pressure! Not easy to find in Jerusalem I assure you. They run a clean operation and are very reasonable for prices. A bed in the dorm runs 40 Shekels or $10 USD per night. For the dorms both men and women there is a shared kitchen which is a nice feature.
On the downside finding it is a bit difficult and it's a haul if you have a lot of luggage because of its location.Call for directions before going and arrange for a porter to meet you. See attached map for those interested in going it alone.
Unique Quality: The garden area has to be one of the highlighted features of being here. With views of the Church of the Holy Sepulchre and the Temple Mount it's picturesque.
Directions: Armenian Quarter
This Small guest house is runned by German managment and located at the old city just about 5 min' walk from Jaffa gate... which means that when staying there you can really feel the atmosphere of the old city and that can be quite an experience !
The prices in the High season is bout 90 $ and in the low season just a bit less then that.
And as far as i know credit cards are not accepted.
I cant add here any personal opinion cause i haven't stayed there only know a friend who have stayed there and was quite happy with it.
