We were looking for a B&B lodging in the center of Jerusalem… we felt that staying in the city at this type of lodging would allow us to feel the real heartbeat of the city and get to know its people. I chanced on Diana's House and was immediately charmed! What a great choice!
Located in the historic Musrara neighborhood, with its renovated 19th-century villas and artistic ambience, the house is a 5-minute walk from the Jaffa and Damascus Gates in the Old City and also 5 minutes from the center of modern Jerusalem.
This is a truly authentic 19th-century house, with gorgeous Jerusalem stone, very tall ceilings, a lovely interior design and tasteful furnishings. The architecture is really beautiful, and we were lucky to hear a fascinating and erudite explanation about it from the owner, Dr. Uriel Adiv, who is an architect by profession and very much involved in national projects for the preservation of historic homes.
Our room was large, clean and comfortable, with a small but well-appointed bathroom. It also had a private entrance opening onto a terrace with a stunning view of the picturesque neighborhood rooftops… we felt like we could sit there forever, just relaxing with a glass of red wine…
The wonderful hospitality shown by Dr. Adiv was beyond all expectations. Every morning he would serve us breakfast with fresh, hot pitas from a nearby Arab bakery, a variety of salads and fresh coffee, after which he was more than happy to share with us great tips about interesting urban locales, sightseeing itineraries, restaurants, etc. in both the Old City and the New City.
We literally fell in love with this charming place. I cannot recommend any better B&B lodging in Jerusalem than Diana's House.
