A little paradise in the Muslim Quarter

Little would I have guessed this place exists if not for our tour guide taking us there. Their restaurant serves a limited menu of lunches and cakes as well as a nice cappuccino. But it’s not cheap, so take enough cash.

You couldn't be more central

Lovely old building, with the best view in Jerusalem from its fantastic terrace. Good café, with garden. Excellent service from reception, very helpful.

Lovely old building, with the best view in Jerusalem from its fantastic terrace. Good café, with garden. Excellent service from reception, very helpful. The hotel (forget the hospice bit, it hasn't been that for many years) is a very distinguished building, right on the Via Dolorosa. The only drawback is you have to approach through the Damascus Gate, and the street is traffic free, so If you can't manage your luggage, ask them for a porter. Bedrooms are plain, but perfectly comfortable (no TV). Breakfast in the dining room, not extensive, but good quality. Very glad to have made this choice, you really feel like you are in the centre of things, not stuck in some modern box outside the old quarter.

This café is not anything you dashes on even if it is very close to the Damascus gate since it is a little secrete. All you see from a closed gate and a name and a button. If you push the button the door opens and after climbing some steps you end up in a hostel and in this, it is a café. They only accept cash and have just a couple of cakes to choose from and the chocolate cake I picked was dry. However, the garden you can sit in is a rare and real oasis in the not so green old city. And this is worth everything.
