We're going to be in Israel October 26-Nov. 5 on a tour. Then, from Nov. 5-10 my husband and I, plus a single male friend who is the teacher on the tour, will be staying on in Jerusalem. We had planned on staying at Christ Church, but just learned it's full for those dates. In 1972 my husband stayed at the Lutheran Hostel and liked it a lot--I've emailed them about room rates and availability.
My question for this group is: do you have some advice for us? We want to stay in the Old City, and we don't care about posh rooms. Clean is important, but simplicity is totally fine. The location of Christ Church was perfect for us...is there anything else that's in that area? Thanks!
