I stayed here as a solo traveler in June 2016, at 84 Euro/night. Austrian Hospice is convenient to many of the old city sights, and you can feel that you're in the middle of a historic area, for sure. Some rooms overlook the Dome of the Rock, which is romantic / atmospheric. Overall, it is as others have reviewed: very...

The Austrian Hospice is a well fortified piece of "das römische Reich," right in the middle of the Muslim quarter of the Old City. It is beautiful inside and out, it is run very efficiently, and in addition to the well-known rooftop many of the guest rooms also afford spectacular views. It is easy to pick up a conversation with...

The Austrian Hospice close to Station five on the Via Dolorosa is a peaceful retreat from the packed stalls and shopping "souk" which is the Via Dolorosa itself. It is a fine building with a pleasant garden and small lunchtime Menu with a small choice of acceptable drinks. I had a single main course of Wiener Scnitzel with Potato salad...

You would never know there is an Austrian cafe run by the benevolent nuns, it feels like you have discovered a secret! The pastries and coffee are good, but the best part is sitting outside in the sun, in the private and secluded garden, looking out over the city, and catching a quiet, reflective moment. The rooftop view is worth...

This is a go-to spot if you are looking for a place to relax in between sightseeing. After hours of touring the city, we visited the Austrian Hospice which offered a secluded outdoor space to relax and grab a coffee and apple strudel. This felt like a little piece of Europe inside the Old City. If I had more time...

The Austrian Hospice is a beautiful place in a perfect location. We stayed there two nights and I will definitely choose it again. The only thing I missed is a sense of "hospitality". Neither the staff at the reception nor in the cafe was smiling at all. One never felt really welcome which is a pity for a place called...

Great coffee, great atmosphere, they have a few traditional desserts if you like the Austrian style! A bit difficult to find and you have to buzz at the gate and wait for them to open in order to get to the coffee place, which is inside the hospice.

If you are really looking to stay inside the old city of Jerusalem, that couldnt be a better place than the Austrian Hospice. You need to pay 5 NSI if you go to the observatory deck. Its worth it. This place has a great cafe and restaurant too.

What a location. This hotel is right in the thick of it, in between the quarters and literally on the street where Jesus carried the cross. Be aware it's not taxiable- you have to walk from one of the gates but on a well known Street. It's so calming up at the hotel compared to the noise and hustle and...

this is the most authentic & peaceful place to stay in old city of jerusalem. (except sleeping on roofs of surrounding hostels ;-) it is tidy, clean, save and cool due to huge stone walls isolating the dormitories and rooms. a marvellous view from the roof and a breakfast buffet of sound quality (not as opulant as el dan hotels...
