The place is clean and well maintained. Located between the mountains with great view and clear air. Feel like going back in time. many things to see and to feel. have great historical value. Note that the rooms are very very basic equipped !.... in that matter the price might be too high for what you get.
This church is built atop historic remains from Aelia Capitolina. You can see the extension of the Ecce Homo arch inside the church through a glass window and the pavement of Hadrian's Forum underneath. Also a good place to visit on a hot day.
We attended sunrise Easter Sunday mass on the rooftop of Ecce Homo. It was most wonderful, with awesome views of Temple Mound and the Old City intermixed with the sounds of church bells and Muslim calls to prayer. Rooftop views are better than those of the Austrian Hospice. One can clearly see the topology of the Old City and how... 更多
Experience Via Dolorosa as you visit this ancient temple. The architecture will bring tears to your eyes as you think about where Jesus walked.

As part of a group of 12 Quakers we spent 3 beautiful days here. Not only had they rooms to stay in but some really ancient parts of Jerusalem underneath the old building. Very friendly, and good food.
JUNE 5-July 3 2012 I stayed here as part of the Biblical Studies program in what became a life changing experience for me. THIS IS THE BEST PLACE TO STAY IN THE OLD CITY AND WILL REMAIN FOREVER CLOSE TO MY HEART. Don't come and stay here if you are after 5 Star accommodation or if you even if you... 更多
This review does not speak to any part of the convent other than the paving stones in the basement which we visited as a potential place where Jesus was brought before Pilate. Due to modern archaeology and more known ancient sources, It appears that these paving stones were put here by the Emperor Hadrian in the second century CE over... 更多
