Lots of B&B owners say it, but this place really is just a short distance from the Old City (right by the Damascus Gate). The place is comfortable and clean, and Ruth is a kind and friendly hostess with good advice. Please remember that this is a budget B&B, not a hotel -- there is no breakfast served, and towels/sheets will not be changed every day. We stayed in the "garden" room, and found it very pleasant.
The place warrants four-and-a-half stars, but given the choice between four and five I rounded down to four, because we found ourselves wanting to use wifi but unable much of the time (the signal from her router is weak, and when we could catch it at all it was only a bar or two, and for that we often had to sit on the patio outside of the room). This is a small thing, yes, but it is a small thing that can make a real difference. If you will need net access, please ask Ruth about the state -- she is a very responsive hostess, and I would not be surprised if after this comment is written she figures out how to boost the signal from her router.
