There's no better place to stay in Jerusalem than the White Sisters Convent! It's across from Damascus Gate and this means you can be in the Old City within minutes and walking distance to the tram and the bus station. Behind it is an array of Mediterranean foods - falafel, schwarma, roast chicken and rice, salads, nuts, sweets, kebobs. In...

This is an intimate, quiet, nice, friendly and very well situated place to stay in Jerusalem. Right across The Garden Tomb which I also strongly recommend. Very far from the tourist feeling. I certainly would like to go back.

Stayed for 5 nights and the address is 112 Nablus RD (not Nablus 9 as it says here in TA). Got a triple room with 3 twin beds that were firm but comfortable. The room on the 3rd floor had one window that overlooked a patio and some nearby homes, it also had a desk, small closet and bathroom with...

We spent 10 days here. The rooms and breakfast were spartan but completely adequate. Noblus Road was torn up when we arrived so it was a bit dusty but the garden was a nice place to unwind after a lot of walking. Very convenient to the old city being so close to the Damascus gate. Sister Herminia took very good...

Some travellers may be put off by the prospect of staying in a convent but Franciscaines de Marie really is a sanctuary in a sea of humanity. No prayers at night, no tripping over icons in hallways, no piped hymns - just a comfortable sanctuary!! Pros: Novel accommodation, UNBEATABLE location (close to Damascus Gate, three bus stations, Sherut Station and...

Rooms are clean and the situation is great (near the Damascus Gate) but it was very hot in the rooms so we couldn't sleep at all. There is no air conditioner so be careful if you have some health problems. The breakfast is at 7.30-8.30, you have to be at the hotel before 11 PM every evening and the check...

We spent 2 nights here. Location was perfect—only steps from the Damascus (Schem in Hebrew) Gate. Unfortunately, the street was being blasted (day AND NIGHT) by construction, which is likely to continue for a while. The room was very clean (if Spartan), and shower was great. The mattresses were very firm (which we liked), but smaller than the actual bed...

The Sisters of this Franciscan convent were incredibly welcoming and made sure that we were all comfortable and happy. They helped deal with lost luggage, provided on-site postal services (letters), and had free wifi. The accommodation is basic but comfortable, and extremely nice to come back to at the end of a day walking the hot, crowded streets of old...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Welcome to Franciscaines de Marie (White Sisters) Guest House - the perfect place for Pilgrims visiting Jerusalem City in the Holy Land. Our guest house is ideally located within walking distance to all of Jerusalem's major sights because it's just outside the Gate of Damascus in Nablus Road (across the Schmidt's Girl College). It is peaceful and quiet like a Sanctuary in the Jerusalem. The daily rate includes a buffet kitchen with fresh bread, eggs, fruits, hummus, brewed coffee, chocolate, tea, a choice of cereals, yoghurt, olives etc. We have guest rooms for solo guests, doubles, triple and even some that can accommodate a family. There are restaurants, groceries and fruit/vegetable shops nearby. You can also go to other places in the Holy Land because the bus terminal is a short walk away. This sanctuary in East Jerusalem also offers daily Masses in our chapel. ... more   less
