The Nesher shuttle will take you to any address in Jerusalem. The Armenian guest house is inside the Old City walls with no vehicle access, so the shuttle will take you as close as it can. Ask the guest house which gate of the Old City is nearest, and get the Nesher driver to drop you off there.

It's a 10-seater minibus that goes when it's full, and it fills up quickly. The cost is around NIS 58 per person including luggage. At the airport, follow the signs to TAXIS and you'll see the yellow-and-white Nesher minibuses right there. They run 24/7.

The Armenian Guest House is located on the Via Dolorosa - as already noted there is no vehicular access to this location. The closest gate is the Lion's Gate - however, be prepared for the driver to drop you off at the turn off to the gate, he may not drive all the way up to the gate as that lane is quite narrow. This lane leading up to the gate is a steep incline. Once inside the gate (whether you got there on foot or the sherut drove up to the gate) you will still have another uphill inside the Old City - all told it will take you about 10 minutes walking to the guest house.

Earlier this month we stayed at the Austrian Hospice, almost next door to the Armenian. Nesher dropped us off at Damascus gate. This is a shorter and generally flatter walk and took us less than 5 minutes at 6pm. Both this route and the VD of course can be crowded depending upon the time and day of the week. Incidentally Nesher picked us up from the Jerusalem Hotel (a short walk from D Gate) for our return trip – much easier than looking out for them at D Gate!

Damascus Gate is also an option - but it would be helpful to know when (day of the week and time) the OP is arriving in order to know which route would be more crowded.
