Press the intercom button and go in! Hidden gem for a nice coffee and a panoramic view of the neighborhood. It also works as a hotel on an old Hospital. Interesting experience though. Nice and neat garden. The door seems to be closed (and it is), so press the intercom.

Head to the roof. There are no signs pointing towards it, but do it, just walk the steps all the way to the top. For 5 shekel you get a beautiful view above the old city. Especially nice during sunrise and sunset. I'm not gonna say more about it. Just go there! Beware though, the entrance to the hospice is...

This review is just for the view and for the nice little coffee bar. I had been walking around the streets of the old city all day and I had just about enough. Hot, overstimulated, and tired we ran the bell at the entrance to this oasis. We trudged up to the roof for the traditional look out and picture...

You have to ring the bell at the entrance. Then go up to the roof. After a visit there and a great overview about the old city (they started to take an entrance fee for the roof...) go down and have a "Strudel mit Schlagsahne". Small oasis in the lively old city.

People who works there does not smile and has no experience in customer service. Over all the above there is a German nun that is...

We stayed 4 nights in Austrian Hospice in Jerusalem. Very well located in the Muslim Quarter, not far way from the Damascus Gate, and just on the Via Dolorosa. Check-in and check-out went smoothly. Staff is customer focused and offers a warm welcome. Rooms are correct, like in a religious hospice, with basic comfort. When you make that choice, you...

We spend 4 nights in this hospice. The location is the best you can find in the old city of Jerusalem just near the Damascus gate inside the Arabic quarter. The rooms are correct for the price, clean and comfortable with a beautiful view on the old city. The coffee shop is good with very tasty and homemade apple strudel....

This gorgeous building was first erected in 1858 as part of the Capitulation process that took place in the second half of the 19th century in Jerusalem. The Hospice catered mainly to Austrian pilgrims who made their way to the holly land. Much like nowadays, the hospice is a cross breed between a hostel and a small hotel, offering dorms...
