Lutheran Guest House
Ranked #9 of 60 Jerusalem B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 March 2012

I stayed at the Lutheran Guest House for three nights in mid February. I had a single room, which was small but very clean and very comfortable. The bathroom was spacious with a good working shower.
Breakfast is very basic, but enough to fill me up for the morning. I found it difficult to locate restaurants for dinner short of walking out of the old city and into the new city (and being dead tired after walking through the old city, it wasn't much of an option). Best to have a late lunch and snack for dinner (at a nearby bakery).
The hotel is basically on a small alley up a few sets of stairs, so that despite my original hesitation to pay a "guide" to drag my suitcase through the back alleys, it did make arriving much simpler. I left early in the morning before the shops opened so that it was easier to drag my luggage back to Jaffa Gate, but it was still a number of steps up to the taxi stand.
For all that walking and climbing steps, you get a hotel room just minutes from the Western Wall and just minutes from the Church of the Holy Sepulchre. The views are spectacular from the hotel's lovely garden (even in February) and its rooftop terrace.
The front desk was very helpful (and sells soft drinks etc. to take back to the room).
I can't think of a better location to explore the old city.

Its quite easy to find and is in a good spot for visiting the old city, although you will have to walk there from the Jaffa Gate and with luggage is a bit of a pain. Its also is in a good spot to get into the new parts of jerusalem which you willneed to do if you want to eat in the evenings. THe rooms are very basic and small, there is no coffee making facilities and no where to get a coffee from, The shower was good, the room was a bit chilly but there were extra blankets, the heating seemd to come on about 9pm oddly. The breakfast was very basic, certainly not enough to take you up to lunch. It is set in some lovely gardens and has a great view over temple mount. the guys on reception where friendly, and arranged a nice guide to take us into Bethlehem for the afternoon. As a base it was great, but don't expect any creature comforts.

Yesterday we have stayed one night in this guest house.
It has an optimal location in the heart of the old city.
The room was quite clean and the beds comfortable.
BUT
It was so very cold it was a torture to shower there and to go to sleep/wake up in such a cold room.
Also breakfast was quite lame for an israeli hotel.
If you want to stay there when you visit jerusalem, at least make sure the heating or the air conditioning works well, otherwise you might regret not staying in a better hotel.

Great location for soaking up old city vibe (so everything closes at night) and pretty close to info centre (don't take their work as fact though...we went all the way out to the train station on the outskirts of Jerusalem following their directions only to find out there weren't any trains?) and Jaffa Gate (Mamilla Mall is right next to Jaffa Gate so you CAN find somewhere close for dinner).
Some staff better than others (managed to borrow a set of crutches when I twisted my ankle).
Rooms nice and really felt like you were staying in the old city (light sleepers be away you can hear church bells and calls to prayer) and courtyard and lounge area were nice.
Breakfast was good and easy to use the net.

This guest house is in the heart of the Old City, walking distance to all sights and has great views from both it's terrace and from the rooms! The morning buffet breakfast is also a wonderful way to begin the day! We stayed here 4 nights and were highly impressed. The rooms are a bit small, but if you are seeing Jerusalem, when are you in your room???
Definitely recommended!

Room Tip: Ask for the ones with the balcony overlooking the Church of the Holy Sepulchur. The top floor is bes...
