Convenient location. Tranquility. Computer & Wi-Fi availability. Nice cafeteria and grounds. Good room facilities, apart from the lack of a top bedsheet. Great view from roof. Helpful staff. Fairly good buffet breakfast.

“A safe-haven in Jerusalem's Old City”
Reviewed November 30, 2013

If you are tired and confused by the many diverging impressions of the Holy City Jerusalem and the sometimes not so holy circumstances of your trip try the Austrian Hospice. Its purpose is Austria's secret embassy in the State of Israel. It offers accomodation of considerable quality in a Central European Catholic environment and a restaurant with all the Austrian specialties which you would get nowhere else in the area. Wiener Schnitzel and Sachertorte with cream can be enjoyed inside or in a lovely garden where trees offer the necessary shadow. You will leave this place fortified in body and soul.

“Peaceful escape from hectic Old City”
Reviewed November 19, 2013

Great rooftop for viewing the Old City! The coffee shop prices are quite steep. I guess they jack them up to sponsor their work in the city? It's clearly a tourist stop for people who want an apple streudel or macciotto "just like at home". But it was a good apple streudel!

“Nice place for coffee break while in the Old City”
Reviewed November 9, 2013

The best thing about the Austrian Hospice is the atmosphere. The minute you walk inside, you're transported back some 150 years to the Austro-Hungarian Empire. For me, the coffee is over-priced, but the Apple Strudel is OK, and it's a quiet and relaxing place to sit and switch off from the noise and the bustle of the market just outside in the Moslem Quarter. Situated just off the Via Dolorosa, you have to ring the bell to get in.

“Nice place for a coffee or beer”
Reviewed November 6, 2013

If you know what to look for this is not that difficult to find just off Via Dolorosa, if you have no clue you probably won't ring that bell. The place, for me, was great for a little break from the summer heat and narrow streets of the old town. They serve good coffee and some decent beer or drinks, the food was ok but nothing special. Highly recommended for relaxation.
