“Great Place To Stay In The Old City”
Reviewed 23 April 2013

My family and I stayed for two nights in the centre of Jerusalem Old City before moving to the Abraham Hostel only because they were fully booked for the remainder of our stay. The Lutheran Guest House is clean, comfortable, and has a relaxed atmosphere. The breakfast is great, and the location unbeatable. It has an old computer that people can use for free and there is a wifi zone if you bring your own. Great value for the money,we would return at the drop of a hat.

When you see it from the outside - in the busy old city, you have no idea of what is inside. A quiet oasis, wonderful rooms and a lovely courtyard overlooking the old city. We were two families together here during easter, and it was great we could walk back here easily after busy days in Jerusalem.
A little walking from Jaffa gate, so can be a little difficult with many bags like we had. If you are several people, they can take reservations for dinner and open up the restaurant for your - you have to do that a few days in advance.

The Lutheran Guest house is a lovely, quiet retreat - a very good choice! The courtyard garden is a relaxing place to unwind or have a picnic supper.
A few minor quibbles - the wifi is iffy, and there's no way to have a cup of tea in the evening - but no place is perfect. This is close.

a short walk ( no cars) from Jaffa Gate, on stone roads is the Lutheran Guest house, comfortable, clean, quiet and right in the Old City. The beautiful courtyard for picnics from the Suq and the roof top terrace with views of the City were wonderful. Try the Armenian Tavern nearby for superb atmosphere. I ordered the Khaghoghi twice, was our best meal in the Old City. Would heartily recommend the LGH. joan belz

Situated on a quiet street in the heart of the Old City, the Lutheran guesthouse provides comfortable, clean rooms, friendly service, and attractive public areas, including lovely views from the upper terrace. Ample breakfasts are taken overlooking the Old City. The guesthouse represents very good value for the quality of facilities and location. Also good that you are supporting the local Christian community. (Dont miss a visit to the ancient Syrian Convent of St.Mark nearby, one of the oldest churches in Jerusalem, but not included in the general Christian 'circuit'.) I have stayed in several hotels and guesthouses in Jerusalem and warmly recommend this one.

We stayed in jerusalem for just 1 night on as we were based in Madaba Jordan. We wanted to see as much as we could so decided on a hotel in the old city. We only had our day pack and no heavy bags, so althouigh there were a few steps to negotiate on our way from the Damascus Gate to Jaffa Gate and then to our hotel it was very easily managable. if yu have lots of heavy bags it may not be the ideal choice. As I looked on a map prior it was easy to find- though you might have troubles if you did not consult a map. It was in a perfect location near The Jaffa Gate. Our room had a perfect view looking towards The Temple Mount.

The room was was very comfortable with good heating- necessary for very cold winter days and nights and it was clean. Hotel costs in Jerusalem (like everthing else) are high so this was quite reasonable at just over $100. Its not 5 star but definitely a reasonable 3 star hotel.
The reading room had a great view of the roof of The Church of The Holy Sepulchre.
My only complaint would be that the breakfast seemed to be entirely of cold foods, cheese, pitta bread etc.

The staff were nice.
The location is fabulous.
We would stay here again because was great for a couple on a budget; also comfortable, quiet, and was easy to get to everything in the old city.

Room Tip: Ask for a view of The Temple Mount.

This place is nice. Sparkly pristine (newly refurbished?) rooms, a beautiful tranquil courtyard with snack and (alcoholic) drinks bar, courteous staff, free internet-ready computer, + a rooftop patio with great views across the city. Good location, right in the heart of the Old City. Not the cheapest, but better value than other comparable places in the Old City. One slight fault: breakfast was large, but overly focused on hummus and pitta etc.
