Hanna's Home is in the heart of Jerusalem. Blending authentic with modern, this 65-year-old house is surrounded by garden, fully equipped and comfortably accommodates up to four people.
The House and its Garden: The home was built by my father, with his own hands. Recently renovated to modern standards, it displays his workmanship in its hand-crafted mosaic walls, stone arches and more. The tranquil and lovingly tended garden around the house is filled with flowers and shrubs, and boasts a 50-year-old lemon tree.
Every room in Hanna’s Home has its own character. There are two high-ceilinged bedrooms, each with a comfortable double bed, a walk-in closet, spacious bathroom, sun terrace with loungers, dining room, lavish library and a fully equipped kitchen. Under the pergola in the blossoming garden is a table for six and a three-seater swing chair.
Sivan manages the house, and is on call for you 24/7 .
Interaction with Guests: This house is where I grew up in — a home I love, in the city I love — and I want you to enjoy it as much as I did! Sivan is there to help you do just that. Like me, she knows the city intimately. She can help you out and answer your questions, whether they are about the house itself, or tourist sites, restaurants and services. She can recommend tours, guides and drivers, and even masseurs/masseuses, yoga teachers, aerobics trainers, arts and crafts and much, much more.
The neighborhood The house is in the center of historic Jerusalem with its many diverse neighborhoods. It is just minutes’ walk from many of its landmarks — from the bustling food market of Mahaneh Yehuda to the Bezalel Academy of Arts to the romantic alleyways of the Nahla’ot neighborhood. Pavement cafés, luxury restaurants, galleries and designer shops are all close by, with Jerusalem’s Old City, Mamilla Mall, German Colony, Khan Theater and Cinematheque all within easy walking distance.
Getting around: With almost every stone rich in history, Jerusalem is a city for pedestrians. But when you don’t feel like walking, the Mahane Yehuda light rail stop is minutes away, and King George Street, around the corner, is a major bus artery.
