This is lovely place to stay, so it is a pity that the breakfast offering is so poor. There is very little put out, no fresh pastries, a token attempt at salad (chopped cucumber and tomatoes), and the coffee comes from an ageing machine. There is little/no attempt at any variety so if you are staying for a few days its going to be pretty much the same. It is obvious penny pinching, which is a pity, because for a little extra cost and effort it could be so much better .
Comfortable hotel - it's more than just a guest house really. Attached to St George's Cathedral; close to the old town but far enough away to be peaceful and contemplative.Good breakfast, good company, good parking, close to the wonderful Garden Tomb.
We spent three nights at the beginning and three nights at the end of our ten day pilgrimage with Qumiri Pilgrimages. The room was comfortable with a nice bathroom and the meals were good. It's an easy walk to shopping and the Damascus Gate. Excellent free wifi I would definitely recommend.
We stayed here over Christmas; choosing it because it looked so lovely and Christmassy in the website photos. Unfortunately, our experience was not entirely positive, and could so easily have been much more pleasant.. Upon arrival we were shown two rooms before we settled with the third. One a family apartment (rather unclean) and number two (on the ground floor) so dark that without the door to the corridor left open (inpracticable in the extreme) the room was completely pitch black as well as being damp smelling. The third room on the first floor, although small, was obviously refurbished and perfectly fine, although the air-conditioning (used as heating in the cold Jerusalem winter) was rather temperamental and we spent a lot of time trying to get it to come on. Otherwise the room was comfortable. The internet was unreliable in terms of being weak, but usually available at some point. The Most disappointing thing of all was around the common areas. Apart from the lovely Christmas tree shown in the photos - and the Cathedral close looked gorgeous - nothing was really 'done' for Christmas. No carols playing - and this was a Church guesthouse - no dinner provided, even with pre-order, no one in the bar or common areas, thus disappointing. Breakfast was very basic but adequate. It was strange that they provided tinned fruit, in a country where fresh fruit is cheap as chips and this is orange season. Tinned peaches??? Hard boiled eggs every day, no variation, although on Christmas day they provided basic pastries. But the funniest (and most frustrating/discriminatory/annoying) thing was over availability of omelettes .. Omelettes were provided for an Arabic speaking man each day but when we asked we were told they were not available. And yet the next day the man and his family again had omelettes so we asked again to be once more told they were not available. It just wasn't worth pushing the point; they were adamant. This was hardly what we would have hoped for or expected in terms of 'hospitality'. Breakfast was cleared away on the dot of 9.30, even on Christmas morning, when some guests had been at Midnight mass in Bethlehem and got back early hours. Unfortunately, despite the website showing tables dressed for dinner, dinner was not provided except for pre booked groups. This was really disappointing as there is not much around in the way of restaurants, and this is not the best area to walk around at night. There didn't seem to be much encouragement to use the bar or lounge area.. rarely anyone there. There's a lovely garden and it is conveniently situated just up the Nablus Road from the Damascus Gate. the light railway was also just a short walk. So mixed.. but essentially the hospitality element is definitely missing and we found it a rather dispiriting experience. Sad, as there is so much that could be done to make this a fab place , not just in terms of maintenance but a 'welcome' for all guests.…
While on our Pilgrimage to the Holy Land, we stayed at St. George's for six nights. The accommodations were more than comfortable, and we had a very clean, spacious room. The food was very good - loved breakfast, and the staff was incredibly gracious and accommodating. The inner courtyard had beautiful flowers and citrus trees and made a delightful gathering spot after a busy day. The accommodations suited us very well. Loved, loved the coffee machine.
This is a magic place. I have traveled for years as a diplomat and consultant and I can't remember when I was as charmed as I was by St. George's Guest House. Wonderful staff, charming and quirky rooms (like staying in a medieval castle or abbey). The breakfast was great, with some new dishes everyday along with a the continuity of comfort foods. The staff could not have been more helpful. They provided information, transportation and hospitality. The guest house and cathedral compound was beautifully decorated for Christmas which added to the charm.
We booked this guesthouse based on the appearance and reviews but decided to change to another hotel the night after: - bathroom was totally not clean (smears of human feces on the toilet seat, hairs in the shower, mold all around due to total absence of ventilation) - in general the rooms and furniture look tired which for some will add to the charm of the building - breakfast offers limited selection - noisy room where we had to "repair" the window locks to make it isolate a bit better. - Grumpy receptionist - Inflexible when trying to change the dates of stay (mind you: change, not cancel) It is not all bad though: - the old building is truly breathing history and has a particular charm - some of the employees are truly nice - close to old city - parking on the property - bed has already been mentioned as soft; which was great…
I loved staying here! Our group stayed here for 5 nights and ate many meals here. Clean, comfortable rooms, great staff, delicious food. It's simple but very adequate. The location is excellent -- easy to get around Jerusalem from.
Lovely St George’s Cathedral & Guesthouse was our home for several nights in Jerusalem. Beautiful gardens with bar and evening al fresco dining; delicious breakfasts with a “wonderful “ coffee machine!!!!!
The rooms are basic and do not expect luxury, but for the price - you are offered very good conditions, in a great location. Very helpful staff - helped us with transportation and tips, and very beautiful complex - with a cathedral, and a beautiful internal garden. Nice restaurants in the area do try Cloves. Definitely recommend.
