If you plan to stay in the Old City there can be few better places to stay. (I have previously stayed at the Hashimi and Knights Palace.) Great location where the Muslim, Christian and Jewish quarters cross, five minutes’ walk from Damascus Gate (Arab bus station, taxis, Jerusalem Light Railway stop) and some classic old city eateries. Wonderful view from...

The Austrian Hospice is perfectly located in the heart of the old city and directly off the Via Dolorosa. The room is very sparten but it is clean and has great high ceilings. Showers are tiny but again, very clean. I should mention that there are a ton of steps to go up to get inside the building so I...

Recently we stayed in the Hospice, and while the accommodations are spartan, this place is amazingly beautiful and Authentic. Comfortable beds, large and very clean rooms, with great feather blankets. Very Affordable and in the middle of the old city. Looking down at the street we saw a mix of Arab Souk sellers, Ultra Religious Jews, Israeli Soldiers, and tourists...

My second experience at the Austrian Hospice, but this time I stayed over. I find it basic, clean, no frills or fuss. A nice thing is the free wi-fi, helpful reception staff and manager, Raefa. Some of the volunteers at the breakfast room came across as being unfriendly, but it can be that it is a language barrier, rather than...

Opening the heavy door from the noisy, bustling street you are immediately in a different world as you climb the stone staircase into this delightful place Located on the Via Dolorosa just 5 minutes from the Damascus Gate this haven of Austrian hospitality stands above street level surrounded by lush gardens. Rooms are simple but comfortable with balconies affording a...

The Austrian Hospice is an architectural delight and has a great location in the Old City and has an accessible roof from which to get a wonderful view. The staff are very helpful (especially when my phone wouldn't work and they kindly allowed me use theirs a few times). For the price (22 Euro), with good breakfast, it was one...

The hotel is well situated within the Old City but the service level I just experience was horrific. The guy who welcomed me in the morning and explained that I can only move in and 2, told me that the hotel provided and had no maps of the old city. I had to walk for half an hour to get...

Right near the souk in the Muslim quarter of Old Jerusalem, this place is really comfortable, efficient, with decent breakfasts and large, really comfortable (if somewhat chilly) rooms. My wife was ill while we were there and they were helpful in finding a doctor for her.
