I read the reviews here at TripAdvisor before going and I could believe that this place could be all that great. Would it be possible to so many people to be wrong? Obviously no, and I had a great experience there, yes it is a really incredible place. Best location in Jerusalem, at the best price, all in good conditions.... More

I chose this guest house based on all the positive reviews it had gotten, and based on pictures on its website. I had a very mixed experience there. I stayed in the Windmill Studio. Pros: Yossi, the owner, and his wife are very friendly and helpful. It is very convenient to the Old City. It is amazingly cheap, considering how... More

We booked this guest house for our family trip to Jerusalem and stayed 4 nights. The location is the ultimate -- Yemin Moshe is a beautiful neighborhood and Avissar House is about a 10 minute walk to the Jaffa Gate. The owner is very helpful but unintrusive, which suited our group because most of us had been in the city... More

Okay, so I'm an addict. Come again and again. But, the thing is, I can't imagine how a hotel can be preferable to this great place. Which has more square footage and much lower prices. It's a place saturated with Jerusalem history. Just ask Yossi about the house, which deserves its own history book. And while you're at it, ask... More

I have stayed at Avissar House many times and always have a wonderful experience. The location is the best in Jerusalem! I wake up every morning viewing the Old City Wall in a calm and quite community. My stay is always greeted with a smile from the owner who makes sure you are settled into your comfortable apartment.

We have stayed at this place many times. In about the best and prettiest location in Jersusalem -- in Yemin Moshe, under the old city walls, near the center, Jaffa Gate, Damascus Gate, the kotel. The Dream of Jerusalem" suite is the best, with a roof deck facing the old city. Not particularly modern or updated. But hotels in Jerusalem... More

An amazing view of the Old city day or night, comfortable accommodations, spacious, with quick access to the Old City and central Jerusalem. We could go anywhere easily from here, and come back to a good shower, and a good night's sleep. The kitchenette was handy and from here we got our rental car. This is so central, I highly... More

Wow, what a beautiful place to stay! From the moment we arrived our host Yossi made us feel welcome. The cottage was lovely, spacious, clean and had a stunning view of the old city walls and tower of david, which is just a 5-10 minute walk to jaffa gate. I'm often up quite early so watching the sun rise over... More
