Staffed with friendly folk, this architecturally beautiful facility is one of the Old City’s hidden gems. Rooms have high ceilings, giving a wonderful feeling of space. Daily cleaning is to a high standard. Beds are comfortable and the daily rate includes breakfast, during which Staff take turns to share an uplifting Morning Devotional. There is a lot to do within walking distance, such as the Garden Tomb of Christ and Ha Kotel (Western Wall). The coffee shop attached to the Guest House is an excellent place from which to see the vibrant and varied local population pass by, especially if you sit at a street table in the sunshine savouring one of the choice hot drinks available, including local specialities. At the end of a day’s sightseeing locally or further afield, the Guest House is a peaceful haven to return to - and you never know just what friends you might meet or make there. Highly recommended.

As we planned our first trip to Jerusalem on our own (vs with a guided tour group) I came across Christ Church, the oldest Protestant church in the Middle East built in 1894 and known as the “Jewish Protestant Church”. I was happy to discover they had a Guest House, Coffee House (Restaurant) a museum, gift shop & garden courtyard. They offer a variety of Accomodations that they accurately describe as: “comfortable, clean and peaceful accomodations for individuals and groups over the short and medium terms, with a friendly Christian atmosphere in the old city of Jerusalem.” Cost for a couple with a queen bed with private bath & breakfast for 4-days was 2420 Shekels or $672.00 US or $168 per night. For comparison the Leonardo Plaza down the street is $213/night with breakfast included. Think of it as a very nice, cloistered adult hostel😇 inside the old city. BE AWARE: If you haven’t driven in Jerusalem (I had not!) finding your way the Jaffa Gate is a challenge. You drive up a ramp just in front of a structure known as David’s Tower, in order to enter the old city walls (there is no actual gate) and once inside you drive straight ahead a distance of about city block before it curves to the right ... when you turn right look directly ahead for the “Christ Church & Guest House” sign on the building & an iron Gate at the entrance. It is directly opposite (across from) the structure known as DAVID’S TOWER & Museum. One thing that was good is that they has a limited number of parking spaces that cost $30/day that is safely (I hope 😬) tucked into the rear of their compound ... but be sure you have a small car... our Nissan rental barely made it through the narrow passage to their parking area. The compound is secured by a Gate & you must reserve your space ahead of time & send them your auto license plates to be let in. Note that their showers must be fed by solar heated water—- think “cold showers are invigorating” 👍🏻.
