A Few Nights with the White Sisters

Such a wonderful place to stay. Everyone was very hospitable. The accommodations are great, all our needs were met. We were made to feel at home. The building is modest but you will want for nothing. The food is very good and very fresh. We felt safe and the rooms, bathrooms, etc were very clean. The outdoor space was quaint; although we visited during Ramadan so it was not as quiet as we would like - completely not the fault of the White Sisters. I absolutely loved my time as a guest and will stay here every time I visit Jerusalem in the future. Can not recommend it enough!

Thus is the best Catholic guesthouse I’ve stayed at. Though it doesn’t have the embellishments of a hotel, it is ultra clean with updated bathrooms. It’s safe as everyone needs to be buzzed in for entrance. A generous breakfast is included with the room rate but don’t expect cooked to order eggs. Still, it’s more generous than what was served in 3 star hotels. Location can’t be beat as it’s half a block away from Damascus Gate of the old city of Jerusalem. It’s also within a block of the light rail. They have various levels of accommodations and I chose the single room with private bath. The room had 2 twin beds and was spacious. Sister Herminia manages the guesthouse and she’s amazing. The sisters are friendly and so are the front desk staff. They organized a Christmas Eve mass to Bethlehem for residents who would like to join them. I hope this is the same guest house at 112 Nablus Road as the address on trip advisor is different. It’s also called the white sisters convent.

A wonderfully calm and community place to stay by Damascus Gate

I have stayed here twice. Happily both times. A quiet, simple, spotlessly clean and supportive friendly place in a brilliant location. Excellent breakfast options and nice to meet other visitors there. The garden is an excellent bonus.
