I stayed here with my mum and dad in a triple room, it was very comfortable, functional and clean. The hallways of this old hospital are steeped in history and there is a cool viewing platform that overlooks the old city. The site is right on a corner of the Via Dolorosa and is available to anyone as there is a coffee shop and chapel. However, to stay in the old city in such a beautiful and historic building was a great thrill. A cold beer in the beautiful garden after a long day of walking through the old city provided welcome relief as well!

We stopped in for coffee on two occasions and found the treed and floral courtyard ambience a welcome change from the busy streets. The hospice is located on a corner, close to Ecce Homo convent. The door off the street opens to a staircase which leads to the cafe and courtyard. The offerings are a range of beers, tea, coffee and cakes. The apple strudel looked fabulous! Staff are friendly and helpful and there's no pressure to leave in a hurry. All in all an enjoyable experience.

Beware - positive reviews are for the cafe but the hotel is terrible.

While the building and garden are really nice, this is where it ends. The rooms are very basic, there is no air-conditioning, not even a fan - which is really not in line with the price you pay and comparing it to other hotels in Jerusalem. The breakfast is served in the basement and the food is really poor. The cafe serves lovely coffee and food in the garden but this is not an option. They only accept payment is cash, which might be fine for a cheap room in a dorm, but not at 150 euros per night.
