The Sisters of this Franciscan convent were incredibly welcoming and made sure that we were all comfortable and happy. They helped deal with lost luggage, provided on-site postal services (letters), and had free wifi. The accommodation is basic but comfortable, and extremely nice to come back to at the end of a day walking the hot, crowded streets of old Jerusalem. The location could not be any better. It's across from the Garden Tomb and steps from the Damascus Gate which meant we were able to spend every minute of our two days in the city exploring and visiting the sites we had come to see.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Welcome to Franciscaines de Marie (White Sisters) Guest House - the perfect place for Pilgrims visiting Jerusalem City in the Holy Land. Our guest house is ideally located within walking distance to all of Jerusalem's major sights because it's just outside the Gate of Damascus in Nablus Road (across the Schmidt's Girl College). It is peaceful and quiet like a Sanctuary in the Jerusalem. The daily rate includes a buffet kitchen with fresh bread, eggs, fruits, hummus, brewed coffee, chocolate, tea, a choice of cereals, yoghurt, olives etc. We have guest rooms for solo guests, doubles, triple and even some that can accommodate a family. There are restaurants, groceries and fruit/vegetable shops nearby. You can also go to other places in the Holy Land because the bus terminal is a short walk away. This sanctuary in East Jerusalem also offers daily Masses in our chapel. ... more less
