The flag of St. Andrew’s waves from the tower of this guesthouse, welcoming visitors. It’s a cheery sight, as are the gardens that surround this hillside lodging; stand in their midst or on St. Andrew’s sun porch, and you’ll be treated to postcard-perfect views of Mount Zion and the Old City. St. Andrews offers spotless, recently renovated guest rooms (bright white usually, with cool tile floors and top-quality beds), a lounge/library, and a dining room where guests can have free tea and coffee all day. The location is a block away from cafes and eateries at the Cinematheque and the new First Station complex as well as a few steps to buses all over town. Staff is congenial, and there’s a ground-floor special-access room and free, gated parking for guests.
