Fodor's Review

Inside the Jaffa Gate, this guesthouse is part of the oldest Protestant church in the Middle East. Pinkish limestone floors and simple furnishings in the guest rooms make for a pleasing aesthetic. Rooms in the newer Nicolayson Block are air-conditioned. The courtyard makes for a pleasant retreat, and there is a library and a comfortable common room with cane chairs and a cable TV.

Don't miss this place.

What a beautiful place from which to see the old city. Very safe and extremely comfortable. You have nothing to fear in visiting the old city.

Hear Ye All Christians

Great place if your Christian. Not a good place if you are not. Staff tries to convert you to their form of Messianic Christianity.

We always stay here for convenience and atmosphere.

The location is great, right in the Old City but adjacent to the best part of New Jerusalem. Extremely clean and well-kept, and it attracts people who are involved in Israel such as professors and archeologists.

An Oasis of Peace in Old Jerusalem

Although far from a luxury hotel, this pleasant hostel is easily the best place to stay in Jerusalem's Old City. The location, right inside the Jaffa Gate, is incomparable; the atmosphere is peaceful and friendly; the meals are well-made, satisfying, and served in a common hall where you can get to know your fellow travelers. The premises are protected by a locked gate at night, a comforting feature, and lunch at the cafe next door or at the Armenian

restaurant a few doors down offer some of the best meal values in the Old City.
