A wonderful b&b near Jerusalem's Old City

5 on January 09, 2017

Though my wife and I once lived in Jerusalem, we hadn't spent a night there in many years. Staying at Magas House was the perfect way for us to get reconnected with a city we love. Like Paris, the more Jerusalem changes, the more it remains the same, and Magas House was the ideal location for rekindling our love for the place. We had a wonderful time in the apartment, which is immaculate and well-appointed. We walked to great restaurants and cafes, as well as to the Old City, where we could satisfy both our spiritual and shopping needs.The apartment is very comfortable and secure, and there's a garden/patio outside in which to relax from a day's touring. The apartment is walking distance to the Old City, Zion Square, Mamilla, Mishkenot Sha'ananim, and much more. This is an ideal place to use as a home base while visiting Jerusalem. We plan on going back to Maga's House and Jerusalem next year.

Nice place, perfect position

The house is very nice and big enough for a couple. It's well equipped so you can even have lunch or dinner at home. I've been there in winter but it would be bautiful in summer because there s ave tu nice courtyard. The position is good. Near Damascus gate, a bus station and other public transports. In complex I would recommend it.

A great value.

We loved Magas House. The place is kept in great condition. The staff is very nice and flexible. It's not really a bed and breakfast in that you get a kitchen rather than a meal. So nobody cooks your breakfast, but you can cook your own meals rather than finding some place to eat. It also has a great location. It's very close to the old city. In fact, it's within walking distance to most of the things to see in Jerusalem. We walked both to the old city and to the museum. And there's a wonderful market just around the corner. This is a great value.
