La Maison d"Abraham is a Catholic Guesthouse with a beautiful location and a tradition which says that 2000 years ago the High Priestly Party met to consider ways to put Jesus to death and thus the hill on which it stands is called the "Hill of Evil Counsel". The Guesthouse is very basic with rooms which are ample but large with bathroom facilities. The service is good and friendly with food of a very simple standard but tasty and sufficient for anyone who likes French
cuisine. The Guesthouse overlooks the Old City of Jerusalem with beautiful views round about
which more than make up for the about 30 minutes walk to the Lion Gate but also called but also called St, Stephen Gate. Not many people know about this place so that it is rather difficult to find but it is near "Ras el Amud" and an Arab hotel which is called Hotel Panorama. It certainly is well worth a visit and for such people who are not too fussy and who do not have trouble in walking via the rather steep hill through the Mount of Olives to and from the Guesthouse the stay there can be quite an experience.
