This was one of the best hotels I have ever stayed in. A little more expensive for what you get than other hostels but very worth it, especially if you are a Christian traveller! The nuns are kind and caring. I was there for Holy week and the sisters went with me to the events and processions and checked that... More

Stayed at Ecco Homo with a group in the dormitory accommodation. Individual space/cubicle is provided but some people might find some group noise eg snoring. As I knew I was in a dorm, it was no problem. Everything is spotlessly clean and the food was excellent. The most outstanding thing has to be location. It is in the Old City... More

I stayed here for 3 nights in a single room and it was very nice to be in such a central location in the old city. Room was basic but I wasn't expecting anything luxurious as it is a convent after all; single rooms have a private bathroom but there is no wifi in the rooms and the air conditioning... More

I rarely start like this a review but this place is fantastic. If you can stay here STAY here. The place dates from 1800s and it shows. It is amazingly preserved and everything is squeaky clean. They have managed to add features like new rooms and even an elevator but done nicely so that you do not loose the great... More

Ecce Homo is a convent right in the heart of old Jerusalem. The guest are a mix of groups on residential religious study courses and people passing through, called pilgrims. The convent has an amazing location with a roof top terrace with expansive view over nearby Temple Mount and panorama of the rest of old Jerusalem. The rooms are basic... More

With a view over the Temple Mount and the call of the muzarin in your ears this location cannot be beaten in Jerusalem. It was built late 19th century from rubble but is said to be placed over the Roman Praetorium where Christ was displayed to the people. Very atmospheric and the Basilica is very much used. Not for everyone... More

I've never stayed in this type of accommodation before so was a little apprehensive! There is no denying that the rooms are basic and very stark but the location / experience does go a long way to make up for this. We had a room with three single beds and a small shower room. The beds were comfortable enough but... More

Staying at Ecce Homo really enhanced our stay in Jerusalem. The location is superb, right by Via Dolorosa, in the heart of Old Jerusalem. The views from the rooftop are breathtaking: you wake up with the chant of the muezzin, and just feel you are where you ought to be in Jerusalem. The place is at walking distance from Damasco...
