With four nights to spend in Jerusalem and a tight budget, Franciscaines de Marie Guest House was a great find. Right outside the walls of the old city by the Damascus gate and with free secure parking, I challenge anyone to find better value.
Sat-nav didn't recognise Nablus Road as a destination, but friendly Arabs were keen to point us in the right direction. Right opposite the Garden tomb.
Very clean en-suite rooms and a splendid breakfast spread to start the day, helpful staff, always a delight to return to after tiring days. What more could anyone want?
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Welcome to Franciscaines de Marie (White Sisters) Guest House - the perfect place for Pilgrims visiting Jerusalem City in the Holy Land. Our guest house is ideally located within walking distance to all of Jerusalem's major sights because it's just outside the Gate of Damascus in Nablus Road (across the Schmidt's Girl College). It is peaceful and quiet like a Sanctuary in the Jerusalem. The daily rate includes a buffet kitchen with fresh bread, eggs, fruits, hummus, brewed coffee, chocolate, tea, a choice of cereals, yoghurt, olives etc. We have guest rooms for solo guests, doubles, triple and even some that can accommodate a family. There are restaurants, groceries and fruit/vegetable shops nearby. You can also go to other places in the Holy Land because the bus terminal is a short walk away. This sanctuary in East Jerusalem also offers daily Masses in our chapel. ... more less
